From the Paper:

"As noted by Yalom there is almost no human psychoemotional problem, difficulty or conflict that cannot at minimum be helped by therapy. However in contemporary times therapeutic models, methods, skills, goals, assumptions and practices are exceedingly diverse. This paper presents a delineation discussion and comparison of two therapeutic approaches: person-centered therapy and psychoanalytic therapy"
