Abstract

Concepts such as psychological mindedness, insight, empathy, alliance, and affect consciousness, to name but a few, have been around throughout the “psychotherapeutic century” (1, 2); all have been implicated as general factors related to change in psychotherapy. In this chapter we suggest that there is a higher order concept, namely, mentalizing, that crystallizes the psychological, biological, and relational processes of these phenomena. We argue that mentalizing is a guiding construct and common factor uniting a range of therapeutic approaches.
