Dr. Hans Strupp's therapeutic approach is based on an interpersonal model. He believes the therapist's role is to identify cyclical maladaptive patterns in the client's life and to help the client explore the ramifications of these patterns in current life experiences and to work on new relationship patterns that can mitigate the earlier issues. In this program, Strupp works with "Richard" to draw out the scenarios and identify his maladaptive patterns.
