Comparison of Three Psychotherapeutic Models: Critique and Analysis

Auther : Mohammed M. Al-Garni

Since the last half of the twentieth century, there has been a tremendous growth in the attention being paid to brief therapy. This growth is reflected in the increasing number of brief therapy models. The socioeconomic demands that influence the foundation of these therapeutic models such as managed care system, social change in family systems, and health demands, play a crucial role in their foundations. Therapeutic practitioners have encountered little time to devote to every client whether due to the demand of third-party payer or due to the availability of clients is to be seen on a regular basis. Recently, therapy has shifted from being evolved around certain theories to being evolved around seeking change and solutions based on understanding and explanation. This shift is reflected by the growing social change in social, economic, and political systems. This study focuses on criticizing three psychotherapeutic models: Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Social Learning therapy (SLT), and Solution-focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). The critique encompasses the view of human nature, philosophical assumptions, and the basic concepts. In addition, the similarities and differences between the three models are discussed.

Keywords: Rational emotive behavioral therapy, Social learning therapy, Solution-focused brief therapy.
