Abstract

The first part of the article presents an overview of the research on the practice of psychotherapy in Poland. Authors found 5 research projects that were focused on empirical verification of questions of who and how conducts psychotherapy in Poland. This review demonstrates that the knowledge in this area is limited because the analyzed research projects are outdated and based on small samples. Authors point out that there are results based on large samples on psychotherapeutic practice in such countries like USA, Great Britain, Australia, Argentina, China, Germany, Norway. The article ends with the conclusion that there is a need of knowledge concerning the Polish psychotherapy scene and this need can be fulfilled by the research project conducted in 2012 among persons offering psychotherapy in Poland. The results of this project are presented in the second part of this work.
