    I believe that the art of psychotherapy is more important than the use of empirically validated treatments (EVT). I feel that the art of psychotherapy exists through the use of the common factors, which include the therapeutic relationship, client and therapist factors (e.g., personality), helping clients deal with problems, and hope or expectancy factors (Reisner, 2005). Although I do believe that empirically validated treatments may enhance the therapeutic process, the treatments themselves are

    My preferred theoretical orientation is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The main assumption of CBT is that events and situations in life do not cause emotional problems (e.g., guilt or depression); rather problems are a by-product irrational beliefs and perceptions about the situations (Corey, 2009). The goals of CBT focus on correcting the client’s automatic and self-defeating thoughts, which should ultimately help them to develop a more adaptive philosophy of life (Corey, 2009). CBT focuses

    Understand, interpret, direct. This statement is an oversimplification of sorts, but defines the essence of Adlerian psychotherapy. From this minimal overview of Adlerian theory, we can begin to elaborate and explore the intricacies of individual psychology. Adlerians are concerned with understanding the unique and private beliefs and strategies of the individual (private logic and mistaken notions) that we create in childhood, and which serve as a reference for attitudes, private views of self,

    Body Psychotherapy (BP) is a relatively new form of psychotherapy. At times BP is combined with the concept of the mind; hence, Mind-Body Psychotherapy is form of BP. I would also group Mindfulness Psychotherapy into the same realm as BP. Therefore, I have reviewed literature from these three camps in an attempt to have a more comprehensive view of BP. Even though BP is a comparatively new form of psychotherapy, some of its roots can be traced as far back as the 1800s. Around the years 1893 to 1895

    Introduction Psychoanalysis is a therapeutic technique, founded by Sigmund Freud, which studies the seemingly deep-rooted problems that reside in the unconscious mind. It is believed that symptoms are instigated by two factors: unresolved issues during childhood/adolescence and repressed trauma. The key to defeating these latent disturbances is to bring them to the forefront of the mind (conscious mind), where the patient can face them head-on. Though effective, psychoanalysis can become a very lengthy
