dc.description.abstractA thematic analysis of early expressed needs of 10 (five good and five poor long-term outcome) clients in experiential therapy for depression. The study sought to: (1) establish a need theme structure from the current data set; (2) validate a previously established need theme structure of early expressed needs; (3) explore whether differences emerge in the types of expressed needs between good outcome and poor outcome cases; and, (4) begin exploration of coded depressogenic etiologies. Findings suggest: (1) the previously established need structure was validated by the current need theme structure; (2) good outcome clients express more self-oriented need themes, whereas poor outcome clients express more other-oriented need themes; and, (3) a common need conflict expressed in good outcome clients suggest these clients were willing to explore their experience in therapy in the service of self-growth, whereas poor outcome clients appear to struggle with more complex systemic need conflicts.
