Abstract

This article describes a case study where the Q Methodology approach was applied to explore the self-image of a person in short-term therapy. The person gained increased self-understanding and resolved an internal conflict related to a self-image issue that was underlying the presenting problem. Furthermore, the Q Methodology approach, combined with Perceptual Control Theory (PCT), suggested some ideas about the nature of the self-concept that can be explored in future research.
