IV - Vector Therapy

Neurosis (personality disorder; psychonosis; emotional disorder) does not originate within psychotherapeutic interviews. It thus follows that, if neurosis originates outside the psychotherapeutic interview, measures taken outside these interviews might aid the resolution of neurosis. It is claimed that this is possible with Vector Therapy, a form of psychotherapy which is extra-interview, though guided from the interview.
The value of interview psychotherapy is not denied; Vector Therapy is complementary to it, but, in the right circumstances, can be more effective than interview psychotherapy.
