The author's model of Positive Psychotherapy is a synthesis of psychodynamics and behavior therapy that focuses on the positive aspects of conflicts and sufferings. He offers transcultural perspectives in the form of proverbs, myths and fables in which the patient may recognize himself in allegorical terms and thus be able to establish a new form of self-confidence and security. Positive Psychotherapy introduces the methods and therapy models of differentiation analytical psychotherapy. The discussion lays the theoretical foundation of Peseschkian's approach: that illness can be a reflection of conflict within the individual or between him and his surroundings.
