At least 30% of the patients, currently in psychotherapy, have been in one or more psychotherapeutic treatments before the beginnig of the actual treatment. A great number of these patients decided as a consequence of their experiences with the former therapeutic treatments to change not only the therapist but also the form of the psychotherapy. The task was to find out the reasons for this. 25 patients who had changed from one of the Guideline Therapies into a client-centred therapy (CCT) were interviewed about their reasons for this change. It was assumed, that the failing of earlier therapies was caused by a lack of matching between patient and therapist, treatment and disorder in the sense of the Generic Model of Psychotherapy (GMP) conceptualized by Orlinsky and Howard. The results support this hypotheses: For most of these patients CCT turned out to be a necessary and successful alternative to the previous treatments. Most of the patients reported that they responded better to the therapeutic offer of CCT. The reasons mentioned for choosing another form of psychotherapy support the necessity of a differential indication for psychotherapy on the basis of the GMP.
