Adaptive Psychotherapy is the term applied to the psychotherapeutic technique that: 1) fosters the adaptation, rather than the adjustment, of the patient, 2) addresses itself to the patient’s specific disabling problem and maladaptation, and 3) springs ideally from ego-syntonic and adaptive features within the therapist. Adaptive Psychotherapy is a derivative of psychoanalytic therapy and its theoretical bases rest primarily on the contributions of Heinz Hartmann. (8 pp.)
