The event aims to promote a debate on the role of non-specific VS specific factors (i.e.: Are therapeutic factors the same in all psychotherapies?).
Two scientific experts will engage in a discussion proposing opposite theses.
Before and after the speakers’ interventions, participants will be invited to express their position on the two theses.
The event will be introduced by Prof. Francesco Mancini (School of Cognitive Psychotherapy, APC-SPC, Italia).
The event will be moderated by Dr. Guyonne Rogier (University of Genoa, Italy).
Prof. Antonio Semerari will comment the position illustrated by Prof. Wampold stressing the utility of alternative models based on a theory of psychopathological functioning
