Summary.  Shared, Explicative Comprehension may find its most suitable collocation in the Dynamic Psychology of Adler, with reference to some of its parameters. The most prominent among these is the Ontogenesis of Language, in its reference to pre-verbal phases of the age of development. The theoretical-methodological and clinical ambit is that of a model which consists of an interdisciplinary network, attentive to the relational aspects, and to interpersonal and intercultural perspectives. This orientation, utilizable in the psychotherapeutic interaction, emphasizes, in particular, the attitude of the therapist, through the medium of a (counter-)transference that is both conscious and intentional (enactment, disclosure, and so on). With reference to this we may draw attention to some techniques which would encourage an emotive meeting up with the transitional, pre-verbal area (earliest memories, the family constellation, dreams etc). The approach, both comprehending and explicative, encourages an empathic participation and an adequate sharing, tending towards the fostering of a therapeutic alliance within the contexts of a culturally-appropriate psychotherapy.
