Psychotherapeutic Treatment as a Manifestation of the Thermodynamic Principles (pp. 125-132)
Authors: Lev Z. Vilenchik
Abstract: A Thermodynamic Approach to psychotherapy allows us to propose a straightforward explanation of the corresponding therapeutic processes. Psychotherapeutic effects are considered as certain disturbances in the patient's brain that lead to the formation of a distinguished temporary energetic “structure” that in turn leads to an entropy decrease. The usual trend is a continued increase in entropy associated with the tendency of the brain to return to its original state. Such a trend generates processes in the body that lead to a result that standard psychotherapy treatment is focused on. Once the desired improvement in the patient's condition is achieved, the introduced temporary energetic “structure” disappears from the brain. As a result, the entropy increases and the physical state of the patient’s body is transferred to a more probable, beneficial, and healthier state.
