The motives of the beginning psychotherapist for choosing his or her orientation are an underresearched issue in psychotherapy training. This study focuses on the role of personality-based factors, specifically the epistemological preferences of the therapist that Kolb (1984) has termed “learningstyle” (LS). The aim of the present study was to explore possible associations between psychology students’ developing LSs and their choice of psychotherapeutic orientation (psychodynamic vs. cognitive).
