Abstract. The origin of one of the main hindrances of successful pharmacotherapy is the hidden gap between the mental horizon of the doctors on one side and the deep-rooted motivation of patients on the other side. Both sides are not aware of the personal and social background of this gap. A questionnaire based on main principles of Positive and Transcultural Psychotherapy is introduced as a guideline to discover this gap and thus to open up a way for new solutions. Sometimes pharmacotherapy is preferred by patients who are not aware of a hidden conflict in their lives as origin of their suffering. Using this questionnaire works with this preference and widens the horizon of the patients, which is restricted by the hidden conflict. Thus, this conflict can be discovered to find a new way for a better solution.
