Excerpt

Many of the therapeutic interventions used in supportive psychotherapy can be viewed as a form of teaching, a process of imparting knowledge. The encoding of the information taught by the therapist constitutes the other half of the therapeutic process. In general, learning is the cognitive process of acquiring skill or knowledge. Memory is the retention of learned information. Psychotherapy can be considered a controlled form of learning (Etkin et al. 2005) through the acquisition of a combination of skills and knowledge. Incorporating the research on adult learning into supportive psychotherapy may enhance its effectiveness.
