Aim. Parenting and psychotherapy are commonly considered to be entirely divergent phenomena. By comparing the two processes in the search for points of contiguity, this narrative literature review aims to present a different approach. Contemporary views on psychotherapy and parenting were analyzed in terms of definitions, relations, treatment, the role in maintaining health and triggering psychopathology. Method. A literature review based on a Medline keyword search between 2000-2020. Conclusions: Available literature review suggests at least three points of contiguity between parenting and psychotherapy: (1) dominant parenting style and its role in the development of future psychopathology, (2) psychotherapy as a process of reversing the adverse effect of parental failures and (3) psychotherapy as a method of supporting parental competence.
