Grounded Encounter Therapy is a discovery, intervention, and application approach which allows the theory which guides the process to be developed from an analysis of the situation or context, rather than imposed at the outset by the therapist. It is a dramatic contrast to psychological theories, particularly psychoanalysis, which impose a specific causal theory at the outset. In GET, on the other hand, the theory emerges from the client-defined context, not the other way around. The book introduces students and professionals an alternative to doing counseling and therapy. Traditional therapist see what they look for, and what they look for they see, and what they see is what their therapeutic modalities allow them to see, and what their therapeutic modalities allow them to see is what they treat.
