La Psicoterapia Analítica Funcional se basa en los principios del conductismo radical, y enfatiza la importancia que tienen las contingencias que ocurren durante la sesión terapéutica, el contexto terapéutico, la equivalencia funcional entre los ambientes, el reforzamiento natural y el moldeamiento. Usa los dos principios básicos del Análisis de Conducta: la evaluación funcional idiográfica y la aplicación de las intervenciones en vivo. En este trabajo se analizan las aportaciones y las novedades que hay en esta terapia. Las nuevas aportaciones son agrupadas en los siguientes puntos: la integración con otras psicoterapias, la mejora de las habilidades terapéuticas, las formas de evaluación y registro de datos dentro de la terapia, la aplicación a diversos problemas clínicos y los estudios sobre su eficacia.

Contributions and novelties from Functional Analytic Psychotherapy. Functional Analytic Psychotherapy is based on the principles of radical behaviourism. It emphasises the impact of events occurring during therapeutic sessions, the therapist-client interaction context, functional equivalence of environments, natural reinforcement, and shaping by the therapist. Functional Analytic Psychotherapy makes use of both the basic principles of behaviour analysis: individual functional assessment and application of in vivo treatment. This paper analyses novelties and new contributions of this therapy. New contributions are classified in various categories: integration with other psychotherapies, improvement of therapeutic skills, methods for evaluation and data recording in therapy, its application to several clinical problems, and studies of its efficacy.
