Abstract

The advanced practice of psychotherapy involves deconstructing and transcending separate schools in the search for universal healing processes. Knowledge from major psychotherapeutic schools over the last 100 years, as well as ancient teachings over the last 5000 years, is distilled in the training and formation of the psychotherapist. Five major elements of training (theory, technique, the patient, the therapist, and the patient/therapist relationship), as well as one element in the therapist's formation (the person), are presented. To be a true healer, the clinician must cultivate his or her soul and spirit. Only then can the therapist guide the patient to reach his or her authentic self.
