DESCRIPTION: The Self-confrontation Method is based on H. J. M. Hermans’ phenomenological theory of personality. The patient (or client) has to respond to a number of questions; in the process he/she inspects everything he/she believes to be important in his/her current life. The analysis of the data is both qualitative and quantitative. The Self-confrontation Method is meant for persons with motivation to change or gain better insight.

APPLICATIONS: This is mainly a psychotherapeutic method but it may also be used for research and diagnostic purposes. Most typically, it is used in the counselling of persons experiencing difficulties and problems, identity crisis, interpersonal conflict or severe decisional problems.
