About the book

This book aims to show the state-of-the-art presentation of various theories and conceptions of psychotherapy. Anthropological psychiatry originated by Minkowski, Binswanger, and Kretschmer will be re-evaluated and revived in order to treat each of the patients as a whole person. Existential psychotherapy based on existential philosophies will be presented with its flourishing development since Frankl's logotherapy and Binswanger's Daseinsanalysis.Neuropsychoanalysis, which combines psychoanalysis and neuroscience-based on dual-aspect monism will be shown to open a new dimension of psychotherapy adapted to the age of neuroscience. Narrative therapy which emphasizes the therapeutic significance of narrative production by the clients will be also presented, as it is eagerly desired by the people who cannot be helped by evidence based approaches. Mindfulness, a sophisticated technique of stress reduction, developed by practical integration of the methods of Buddhist meditation, will be discussed from the theoretical aspect. Spiritual care, which is a profoundly needed support for the modern people who have lost religious beliefs and threatened by inevitable fear of death, will be discussed from various points of view. Also other kinds of psychotherapy will possibly be covered.
