The term psychotherapy currently has a considerable extension, and at the same time is submitted to process of systematization and codification. This codification does not take into account the psychotherapy of the current practice even though it is used with most patients. The determination of the common basis of any psychotherapy assumes the principle that the human psyche is an apparatus or function of the organism, producing a certain work, and whose birth, maintenance and change require the contribution of other human psyches. From then on, the common basis of any psychotherapy appears as an operation of shared psychic work for therapeutic purposes.
