This theoretical and comparative reflection focuses in the following issues: role of language; psychopathology; stance about the human being; the concept of acceptance; relevance of being in the here & now; focus on values; therapeutic techniques; therapeutic focus; the therapist and the therapeutic relationship; and, finally, the issue of spirituality.
