Abstract: Discusses trends in psychotherapeutic practice in Czechoslovakia. A number of procedures have been used, including those either directly or indirectly derived from Pavlovian concepts of classical conditioning, which are closely related to behavioral therapy in several respects. Autognostic training is widely used, as is hypnotherapy. Another trend is related to dynamic psychotherapy. There are only a few supporters of classical psychoanalysis; however, psychodrama is frequently used. A number of original procedures are also employed, including creative gymnastics, music and art therapy, and special therapeutic communities for different diagnosis groups. Psychotherapy is used for the final treatment of psychosis, especially for schizophrenia.
