    Special Issue on Psychotherapy



    Psychotherapy is a general term that is used to describe the process of treating psychological disorders and mental distress. It is a process focused on helping individual heals and learns more constructive ways to deal with the problems or issues within his/her life. It can also be a supportive process when going through a difficult period or under increased stress. Psychotherapy aims to increase the individual's sense of his/her own well-being.


    While many psychotherapists do use this classic type of talk therapy, there are actually a wide variety of techniques and practices used in psychotherapy. Some of the major approaches to psychotherapy include: psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and so on. Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change.
