A number of distinguished psychotherapists were graciously willing to comment on my article on the foundational beliefs in the field of psychotherapy. In my responseto these comments, it seemed to me that most of the comments illustrated that the common mind-set of 'fundamental truths" will not especially tolerate close examination of its “fundamental truths.” It also seemed to me that many of the comments illustrated some of the common ploys that psychotherapists use to avoid knowing their own "foundational beliefs." Nevertheless, the invitation was extended to psychotherapists to discover one’s own "foundational beliefs."
