What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a collaborative communication and exchange between a patient and a therapist that aims at improving emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal functioning. It may involve time-limited or long term explorations of one’s past and present conditions. Research has demonstrated solid evidence for its efficacy in helping people experience more satisfaction in life, function optimally, and modify maladaptive attitudes and coping. A well-trained, experienced therapist should be able to select a treatment approach that is tailored according to each patient’s personality, sociocultural background, and specific life circumstances.
