JUAN, Santiago et al. The clinical inferential process, the psychotherapist's prognosis and interventions. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp.43-51. ISSN 1851-1686.

In the present paper current research about inferential process and clinical interventions is described; aiming to present a possible way of studying the relationship between the prognostic inferences and the psychotherapeutic interventions. The study of clinical interventions and their classification is described. Different research lines on the concept of prognosis are mentioned, analyzing possible assessment modalities and criteria, considering the study of clinical inference as a basis. Current results about prognostic inference are presented. The concepts of clinical inference, prognostic inference and intervention are defined and analyzed as parts of the psychotherapeutic process. A strategy to relate the prognostic inferences and the interventions is proposed. The psychotherapist's theoretical framework is presented as a factor in play in the inferential production and the intervention modality.

Keywords : Prognostic inference; Intervention; Psychotherapy.
