Author(s): Dr. Abhijit Chatterjee
Abstract: In Homoeopathy, emotion is placed at the highest position to evaluate a healthy person or any diseased condition, but no positive step was taken for evaluation of emotion. From “Sternberg’s triangular theory” intimacy, passion and commitment component were used as instrument or diagnostic tool to find out the exact emotional condition which help us to find out exact similimum. We can also use this triangle as prognostic tool to assess the emotional condition of the patients during the course of the treatment. The objective of our study is to establish a cause-effect relationship of emotional behavior of the patient and the correction of the negative emotion in an easier way.
