The debate about the differential effectiveness of the different models of psychotherapy and the so-called “Dodo Bird Verdict”, the fact that equivalent efficacy has been found between different therapeutic approaches, is analyzed in this work from a new perspective: memetics. A meme is a unit of cultural information that is replicated and evolved by selection mechanisms. Memetics is the field that deals with the study of memes and how they are distributed and evolved. The aim of this article is to analyze important issues of psychotherapy and clinical psychology based on a memetics approach. We consider this perspective to have important implications for the conceptualization, research, and improvement of psychotherapy, shedding light on stagnant issues and offering new research possibilities.

The current landscape of psychotherapy is as prosperous as it is disconcerting. Different therapies show comparable efficacy. Evidence-based practice has given way to a backwash of different movements. Psychotherapy process research leads to an archipelago of “niches of researchers”. In order to clarify this panorama, we have turned to the philosophy of science. The philosophy of science has made it possible to identify different epistemologies, reopen the distinction between positive natural science and human sciences and resituate psychotherapy on the human science side. As a human science, psychotherapy is, above all, a contextual holistic relational activity, person-centered and values-based, rather than a scientific-technical activity centered on “faulty mechanisms”. Wampold’s contextual model and a phenomenological-existential approach are milestones of this “new life” of psychotherapy, which is more human than technological-impersonal.

Despite its buoyant expansion, psychology is still also buoyant in the sense that it is floating without a clear definition regarding the science of what it is exactly. Fragmentation remains the most striking landscape of psychology. Its most cherished conception as a science of mind and behavior leads to more problems than it solves, among them the dualism that it was thought to overcome. On the other hand, cognitive neuroscience, far from being a solution, seems itself to be a factory of dualistic explanations with its personification of the brain attributing the psychological functions to it. As an alternative, we present five conceptions of current psychology that are neither dualistic nor brain-centric, as proof that dualism and brain-centrism are not inevitable. Faced with the plurality of approaches, a trans-theoretical conception of psychology is proposed as the science of the subject and behavior, beyond the mind and the brain.
