    ABSTRACT: Resumen La presente investigación es un estudio de caso único en el marco de investigación de procesos y resultado en psicoterapia. Esta Investigación describe la percepción del tiempo subjetivo en un proceso de psicoterapia exitoso. Para ello se procedió a estudiar un proceso de psicoterapia de orientación cognitiva, video-grabado, y transcripto en la totalidad de sus 18 sesiones. Primero se realizó una codificación cualitativa y luego se identificaron seis tipos de categorías de tiempo sub- jetivo, las cuales fueron positivas y negativas, en función del bienestar psicológico. Se aplicaron dos análisis estadísticos de tipo cuantitativo. En primer lugar, un análisis de contenido que permi- tió observar las frecuencias para las seis categorías, y en segundo lugar, el análisis de frecuencias acumuladas que permitió identificar un patrón diferencial en el caso analizado.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this research was to determine the relation between the profile of the central beliefs of personality disorders and perceived sense of life in Colombia university students aged between 16 and 45 years of diverse races in the city of Bogota. The instruments used were: (1) Questionnaire core beliefs of personality disorders and (2) Scale dimensional sense of life. The sample consisted of 695 students, of whom 479 were women (68.9%) and 216 were men (31.1%). The results showed an insignificant relation between variables (personality disorder beliefs and way of life) which is because they are both multidimensional concepts (cognitive, affective and behavioral) that are interrelated and affect each other, which can not be define any given onedimensional. Also include the results considering that logoterapeutic perspective is evident in both variables noetic or spiritual dimension, which refers to the human capacity for freedom and personal resources, which allow you to counter the physical and psychological constraints that be affected. From this perspective, even if belief in personality disorders, the human being can resist the constraints that generate them and find ways of living. We conclude from this study, to have beliefs of personality disorders does not determine by itself have a low or high perceived sense of life.

    ABSTRACT: There are few studies that focus on the major depressive disorder from the logotherapeutic perspective. The present study pretends to identify the relationship between Life Meaning and Noological resources, in individuals with a major depressive disorder. The sample consisted of 15 institutionalized patients that where diagnosed with a major depressive disorder with suicidal ideation. The "Escala Dimensional del Sentido de Vida" and the "Escala Dimensional de Recursos Noológicos" were used. It was found that both men and women that suffer from this disorder had low scores in the meaning of life and that they are currently in search of it; it should be highlighted that men scored higher than women in this dimension. A great number of participants maintained ambivalent levels of all the noetic resources. None the less, all factors that aim towards an evaluation of the self-distancing resource, and the elements within it, are distributed in levels of blockage, restriction and ambivalence.

    ABSTRACT: Socio-demographic and clinical characteristics are compared among women with affective disorder diagnosis and suicidality, treated in the Psychiatry Service of the Hospital del Salvador (SPHDS) in Santiago de Chile. The database of the SPHDS about women treated as outpatients between 2003 and 2010, was analyzed (n=214), comparing religious affiliation, suicidal risk type, affective disorder diagnoses, comorbidity with personality disorder and OQ 45.2 score. Non-believers treated patients were younger (M=38) than believers (M=39,36) They didn't differ in other sociodemographic or clinical characteristics, neither in presence or absence of suicidal ideation or attempts. The main difference found among women with affective disorder and suicidal risk was the greater severity of the clinical condition among the outpatient non-believers.

    ABSTRACT: This study approaches human encounter and the meaning construction that it unfolds, from a dialogical and micro-process perspective. Considering Valsiner's proposal (2007) a semiotic approach is taken. A Protocol of Analysis is proposed, which describes indicators that regulate the process. Moments of therapeutic dialogue with mothers of sexually abused children were considered in the study. The analysis describes mechanisms that promote the construction, that constrain and enable meanings in dialogue. The participants derived from the impossibility of action to the generation of alternatives in their lives, expressing inter and intra-individual variability of the signification processes. These intersubjective dynamics make possible self and culture joining in a reciprocal process of influences towards stability and change.

    ABSTRACT: This study aims at assessing the influence of the theoretical-technical orientation in the personal style of the therapist. 60 psychotherapists from psychoanalytic, cognitive and integrative orientation were studied. The Assessment of Personal Style of the Therapist Questionnaire (PST-Q) of Fernández-Álvarez & García (1998) and an exploratory interview about orientation and performance created for this study were administered. To assess the influence of the theoretical-technical orientation over the personal styles of the therapist, the multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) was used. The obtained results show statistically significant differences in the personal styles of the therapist according to theoretical-technical orientation, showing a characteristic profile if the orientation is psychoanalytic, cognitive or integrative. The results are especially relevant for the psychotherapist professional practice.

    ABSTRACT: Learning the ways of being-with-other-in-the-world is linked to a triadic experience. This article seeks to expose the issue of the triadic as the core of our relational development, and link it with the therapeutic task where the construction of the third, is the primary focus. Couple therapy rises as a literal triad with three adults meet, an aspect that makes it difficult for the therapist to maintain asymmetry and promotes more intense fears about the alliance. To support the stress at excluding or being excluded is a natural source of relational learning, an essential resource for couple therapists, whom must be able to tolerate this ambivalence permanently.

    ABSTRACT: The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) is a widely used instrument in clinical practice and for research purposes. This study aimed to determine a cut-off score for STAI state and trait anxiety scales that differentiates between healthy adults and those with anxiety disorders. A total of 180 patients took part in the study; 80 patients were part of the control group, and 100 were part of the study group. The study group consisted of those with any type of anxiety disorder as assessed by a semistructured clinical interview by a psychiatrist based on DSM-IV criteria. The control group consisted of people with no diagnosis of any type of anxiety disorder. Cut-off values for the scales were determined using receiver operating characteristic analysis. This study found that a cut-off value of 41 was optimal (sensitivity=78.3; specificity=71.2) for the STAI-I and, a value of 44 (sensitivity=93.5; specificity=57.4) was optimal for the STAI-II.
