Example text

Hobart Mowrer who felt that there is no theoretical practicability except that the interpersonal relationship exists. To do so requires much on the therapist's behalf ± the would-be knower must become known. This is the self-disclosure of their Eigenwelt so as to know the other's Eigenwelt. (Lander, 1980, p. 6) 28 The Integrity model of existential psychotherapy Stress as a clash of values Van Deurzen-Smith (1988) describes a focus which involves both an existential psychotherapy approach and working with existential issues: assisting people to come to terms with the dilemmas of living.

In our view, one cannot have a Thou without one's I being revealed in order for the other to have their half of the connection. One has to give the other something or someone to relate to, otherwise it is like the sound of one hand clapping. Addressing difficulties with daily living Like Mowrer, we see dif®culties with life and living as resulting from interpersonal rather than intrapsychic con¯icts (Lander, 1986b; Mowrer, 1958, 1959). We believe that individuals get into emotional dif®culties because they are not living up to their own values; in other words, because they are violating the contracts and commitments that they themselves have made.

Most stresses in life are seen as stemming from a clash of values (Lander and Nahon, 1989a, 1989b; O. H. Mowrer, personal communication, 1970). In his writings, Mowrer (1973) refers to traditional rules about living introjected from society and viewed as absolutes, contrasting this with the challenge of examining our conscience. He stresses the importance of honouring personally agreed upon contracts, rather than values prescribed by parents and others. Throughout his writings, he emphasizes the pivotal importance of being true to the dictates of one's conscience in achieving mental health and wellness.
