PSYCHOTHERAPY

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!

Psychotherapy


by Doris Jeanette

“Does the color of the clothes I wear effect other people,”asked Peter, a visitor to drjeanette.com. This interesting question brings up the physical nature of colors, emotions, and energy. Colors and emotions are both composed of physical vibrations. The energy of these vibrations constantly effect and affect you even if you don't know it or acknowledge it. Colors have certain wavelengths, which you can feel and experience. Emotions have certain wavelengths, which you can also feel and directly experience.

 

Editors Note: Dr. Jeanette’s article made me curious about the physics of color and physiology of emotions. I’m including a segment below that I found on wikipedia.com which describes this in more detail. See below the article to read "The Conceptualization of Affect".

 

Psychotherapy


by Gloria Arenson, MFT, DCEP

A while ago I accompanied a dear friend to the doctor to lend support while she had an invasive diagnostic procedure. She was very anxious. I was allowed to be in the room with her while she waited for the doctor, and I did a gentle relaxation exercise with her. Then I asked her to use EFT to allay her anxiety...

 

 

 

Psychotherapy


by Mary Saracino, BA

In the house on Bayard Street piles of bony fear hide in dusty corners. Behind the ghostly outline of a couch a young soul, nose to knotty-pine paneling,waits to be retrieved...

 

Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: Mary writes after realizing true healing. She captures the essence of renewed hope, coming joy, and new life. She inspires anyone seeking health in mind, body, and soul to move toward help. Mary's poem is a prelude to discovering her story shared in Voices of the Soft-bellied Warrior, a memoir of her journey through healing a rare voice disorder.

 

Psychotherapy


One in 10 men is a victim of trauma; 71 percent of men experience some form of psychological or emotional before they turn 18. Trauma, especially in childhood, has been linked to addiction. Many addicts and recovering addicts are also trauma survivors. Though men and women cope with trauma differently, people of both genders experience the same level of intense suffering in the face of pain and loss...

 

Psychotherapy


by Vicki Smith, LPC

Most of us want to be able to be adult-like in our relationships. We strive to be patient, understanding and give each other the benefit of the doubt. However, life gets in the way, or rather our reaction to life gets in the way. Reaction is completely normal and understandable. When we interact with each other we are bumping up against old wounds...

 

 

 

Psychotherapy


by Juliet Rohde-Brown, PhD

Even in our daily lives, one of the most difficult aspects of forgiveness can be the task of forgiving ourselves. We plague ourselves with questions: Why were we unable to prevent appalling events that happened to someone we love?...

 


Editor’s Note from Elizabeth Wolfson: When things happen outside of our control that upset or hurt us, the author urges us to practice forgiveness and self-forgiveness as a path to healing.  This article is an excerpt from Dr. Rohde-Brown's recently published book, "Imagine Forgiveness."

 

Psychotherapy


 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wolfson: Sometimes life throws us significant and unexpected experiences. Sometimes something so dramatic happens our life feels as if it is "falling apart." It may be a life changing event akin to an earthquake (loss, death, illness, a relationship break-up) or a series of occurrences that domino and seem to invite us to re-evaluate...

 

Psychotherapy


 

Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: I found this to be an entertaining video using graphic arts to illustrate some of the things we know about how people find happiness. Sagmeister is an Austrian graphic artist. I think the word ideas rather than rules would have been a better choice for the title of this talk. He uses his experience through his work to illustrate how he manifests happiness in his own life. Watch this for a fun and creative way to visual ways to manifest happiness in your life.

 

Psychotherapy


by Nancy Burnett, PhD, CST-T, Certified Sandplay Therapist and Teacher
ATH Co-Editor of Psychotherapy

A smooth wooden centerpiece shaped like a low bridge stands at the center back of a lace-covered altar. On it sits a seated Quan Yin to the left, and a card featuring the Madonna and Child stands on the right. In between those two, a small red chair faces forward...

 

Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: This article begins a feature of the Psychotherapy page devoted to personal expressions or descriptions of the experience of being in psychotherapy or counseling or analysis or a coaching relationship. I wrote this piece several years ago at the beginning of my relationship with my writing coach. We set out together to complete a long-time dream of mine--to write a book--that had been blocked by self-doubt, topic uncertainty, and plain ignorance of how to go about the creative writing task. My journal entry reflects the paradox of my excitement in the midst of my fear of the coming process like that which not only I, but also many of my clients' have reported...

 

Psychotherapy


by Penelope Young Andraade, LCSW

Are you ready to be your own good parent? Being your own good parent means taking care of yourself—noticing when you are tired, hungry, stressed, and/or need some emotional medicine...

 

Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: Emotional Medicine Rx is a treasure trove of help for anyone suffering in mind, body, and/or spirit. Penelope's work has the goods--the back story, the solid info, and the "Action Tips" that guide you into ever-deepening understanding through actual practice. With 30-odd years of clinical experience to draw on for case examples, she makes you feel less alone as you grow toward the end point of feeling good. And even better, Penelope shares herself! She shows through her own tragedies, how to make her Rx work. I am so excited to recommend this book to my clients as well as friends for whom I have ordered gift copies. Try it for yourself. You too will feel better fast!

 

Psychotherapy


by Esther Perel, MA, LMFT

While the diversity in the couples I work with is infinite, one complaint rings true across all cultures: couples who describe themselves as loving, trusting and caring complain that their sex lives have become dull and devoid of eroticism...


Editor's note: This article (which appears on estherperel.com) offers an innovative perspective on how intimate relationship is enhanced when partners allow for space between them. ~Elizabeth

PSYCHOTHERAPY

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.
