The following is an excerpt from an interview Frank Farrelly did in 1982 and is part of the Frank Farrelly archive
by Mister Frank Farrelly, originator of this unique approach to therapy.
The series you are about to begin is an important and significant event in your personal career development. For as you will soon realise, provocative therapy will have a profound effect on your personal thinking, of how therapy should be conducted. The introductory session you are about to begin is crucial if you are going to gain the full benefit of each interview session. In this part, Frank Farrelly will outline what he feels are the essential components in provocative therapy. Finally, while the material in this series has been edited, no attempt was made to tone down the language used during the interviews. Nor was certain outside noises and other technical problems completely eliminated by editing. Any of the listeners who have had occasion to tape live unrehearsed therapy sessions, are aware of these problems.
