What is your preference for the focus of your therapy?

To what degree do you have a narrow or wide focus? I try to focus on:

a major aspect or
theme of a problem

elaborating and appreciating the
complexity of interactions of problems

How much does your therapy focus on alleviation of symptoms, vs. on depth (underlying causes of problems)?

Almost exclusively on
alleviation of symptoms

Almost exclusively on the
underlying causes of problems


This therapist self-rating was used in TMatch for matching by clients' preferences for length and depth of therapy. Clients were given a similar assessment, and they were matched to therapists based on how much their preferences matched therapists' self-ratings.
