All psychotherapeutic systems have a vision of psychological health rooted in and stemming from their view of human nature. The goal of therapy is to develop interventions that, based on each orientation's personality theory, remove obstacles and barriers and develop awareness, insights, skills, and abilities that enhance a person's psychological health (Shapiro, 1983).
