Scientific

Aim: To investigate positive and negative experiences in psychotherapy of individuals (>18 years) with high intellectual intelligence and what personal factors according to these individuals determine their experiences.

Methodology: For data collection, 17 adults with high intellectual intelligence who were in or had recently finished psychotherapy were interviewed.

Findings: The interview protocol and responses to the interview questions (i.e., quotations that were collected during the interviews) will be presented at the conference.

Significance for practice: Elucidation of the positive and negative experiences in psychotherapy of patients with high intellectual intelligence will enable psychotherapists and their patients to better identify what is helpful in psychotherapy and consequently develop a stronger alliance and better results.
