“Anti-Expectation Psychotherapy Techniques” refers to an array of procedures that have one major common element: they consistently contradict most patients’ expectations of how a therapist will respond to their problems and symptoms. Most anti-expectation techniques involve a therapist encouraging the patient to produce or amplify symptoms, rather than emphasizing that the symptoms be suppressed, denied, or avoided. The techniques are designed for use mainly with patients demonstrating particular kinds of resistance to the more traditional therapy approaches. (10 pp.)
