ABSTRACT Eugene Gendlin (1996) put forth his own systematic approach to psychotherapy based on phenonrenological philosophy and Rogerian psychotherapy in several papers and a book (Gendlin, 1974; Hart, 1970). Gendlin's approach provides an alternative to, for example, a psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, gestalt, Eriksonian, or bio-energetic approach to therapy. Just as there are Freudian, Jungian, Adlerian, and Reichian approaches to therapy, there is a Gendlinian approach. It is systematic. It has its own vocabulary, its own kind of concepts, its own linkage of concepts, its own methods, and its own way of combining methods. It is a distinctive, though not well-known, approach. This article presents a basic outline of Gendlin's approach to therapy.
