Abstract

The concept of potential‐to‐experience is a major component in psychodynamic theory and assumed to be an important component of psychotherapeutic technique.

The aim of this pilot study is to explore the relationship between patient–therapist congruence of potential‐to‐experience engaged statements and the outcome of psychodynamic treatments.
