What is Psychotherapy? Psychotherapy can be considered an alternative healing therapy that involves learning to increase self awareness in order to realize maximum human potential, thereby helping us to live more authentically with improved relationships, professional and financial successes, balance and grace. Psychotherapy is a general term describing many specific types of therapy such as talk therapy, narrative therapy, psycho-social therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy and counseling. Psychotherapy treatments are commonly used for psychological problems on an individual basis, with couples, families and groups. Forms of communication used in psychotherapy healing can include writing, artwork, music and dramatic theater. A psychotherapy practitioner may be a psychologist, marriage and family therapist, occupational therapist, counselor, psychiatric nurse, licensed clinical social worker or psychiatrist.   What we refer to as psychotherapy medicine has been practiced as far back as ancient Greece.  It is thought that the first recorded use of psychotherapy was performed by Dr. Josef Breuer.  Dr. Breuer would go on to be a close friend, teacher and collaborator with Sigmund Freud.  Dr. Breuer observed a woman who suffered from paralysis felt better after she ‘talked’ to him about her symptoms.  It is thought Sigmund Freud employed this ‘talking cure’ form of treatment and later created what we refer to as ‘psychoanalysis’ in Vienna, Austria in 1881.  A trained neurologist, he began working with patients who were classified as hysterical.  He continued practicing psychoanalysis into the 1930’s.   His psychotherapy treatment work was later built on by Karl Jung, Anna Freud and Otto Frank among others.  In the 1940’s, pioneer Carl Rogers brought forth a humanistic approach which rose to prominence by the 1950’s.  Psychoanalysis, humanism and Ivan Pavlov’s work in behaviorism laid the cornerstones for teaching psychology in the United States today.   Psychotherapy is an alternative healing therapy that is a constantly growing. Today there are over 450,000 licensed psychotherapists in the United States.  General research shows that the average length of psychotherapy treatment is between 6 and 10 sessions.  It has been reported that Americans spend about $55 billion on psychotherapy annually.     All Things Healing promotes psychotherapy, an alternative healing therapy, with psychotherapy information presented in articles and video form.  For more and updated information, visit us online regularly!

by Ginette Paris, PhD

The pain of mourning and heartbreak is neurologically similar to being submitted to torture. There seems to be only one way to end that agony and to limit somatic damage; neurobiology calls it an evolutionary jump and psychologists call it an increase in consciousness...

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wolfson: This excerpt from Dr. Paris’ recently published book, "Heartbreak: The New Approaches,”  debunks the myths that one can readily recover from heartbreak and validates the enormous hurdles of healing from the grief of lost love.  Immersing herself in the study of heartbreak, Paris finds that the path to recovery is no less than a “reconfiguration” of the way our brain sees the world into a new and deeper understanding of love and oneself.

When the Psychotherapy Editor asked me to write this piece, I focused on keeping myself out of the writing even though at the time I was dealing with chronic pain. I discovered that keeping me out of the writing left the message stiff and impersonal. The definition of pain given by the International Association for the Study of Pain states it is an unpleasant sensory experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage (www.iasp-pain.org). However, pain is a subjective experience that includes an emotional and spiritual component that is often neglected in the scientific definitions.

In the summer of 1954, in Robber’s Cave, Okla., a group of boys calling themselves the “Eagles” raided the camp of the rival “Rattlers,” stealing knives and other possessions from the group. Fleeing back to their own camp, the Eagles gathered rocks to defend themselves when the Rattlers came seeking revenge.

The upshot of this encounter was that no one got seriously injured, and a groundbreaking study in social psychology was produced that promised to change the world...

Jennifer Freed's Photo"He doesn’t give me flowers or poems like he did in the first year he was pursuing me."   "She never dresses up for me anymore."   "The sex has gotten so routine."

We are all too familiar with the lackluster experiences of couples whose passions fade. Biology kicks in the dance of endorphins and dopamine during the first 6 months to 2 years of the mating ritual, creating a high for couples who are pulled together by what seems to be an irresistible paranormal force.
But what happens when the chemistry of nature has finished with the lure?

A few years ago Disney celebrated its 25th anniversary year. Many of us who grew up with or have children who grew up with Mickey, Donald, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs probably remember the magic of watching these characters come to life in story books and movies...

Inevitably, as the financial crisis deepens, therapists, opinion columnists and Dr. Phil will offer explanations and advice to help suffering couples.

Much of this advice is behavioral — changing your behavior can help things a lot. The guidance is tried and true, and has real benefit for couples in relatively low levels of distress...

Leo Babauta of Zen Habits recently wrote an interesting piece called, “The Illusion of Control.” In it he describes how our efforts to control our lives and our surroundings are fundamentally flawed and worthless. We cannot control things, Leo argues, because our world is too complex, and the future is ultimately unknown.

I partially agree, but I also find his position a bit absolutist...





Editor's Note by Debbie Allen: Helen Fisher is an anthropologist who has been researching the biology of love. The most hopeful message from this talk is that her reserach has found that the region of the brain that is activiated in romantic love is still activated 25 years later by couples who describe themselves as still being in love. She also explains why it is so difficult for many people to recover from the loss of a relationship due to regions of the brain that are triggered by this loss.




Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: I've been thinking about the idea of living from a place of whole-heartedness. The challenge as I see it is how we can maintain a place of whole-heartedness in the face of all of the stresses that life puts in our path. In this TED Talk, Brene Brown goes straight to the core of the issue...

by Robert Romanbyshyn, PhD

Who am I to speak about so intimate a topic as grief? Especially as I do not believe that there are any norms by which the grief of one person can be made into a formula for another. At best each of us can be only a witness to those awe-ful moments of loss, giving as faithful and true account of the journey that grief impels us into...


Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wolfson: This beautiful article by Robert Romanashyn describes how the shock of losing a loved one and the journey of mourning may bring us to a new place in relation to the loved one, to the world, and to ourselves.

When You Hear Your Partner, Are You Listening?

by David McCann, Ph.D. & Janis McCann, Ph.D.

The art of listening is the heart of communication. We believe that if we do not come together and listen to one another, we cannot have a healthy culture. But if we do sit down and listen to one another, we can remake the world—one relationship at a time.
