Psychotherapy in the USA: Ethical/Philosophical Issues

Dr Darlyne Nemeth

In order to address the needs of the present and the future, we must have a good understanding of the past. As citizens of a relatively young, yet powerful nation, psychotherapists in the United States of America (USA) must have a clear understanding of the needs of those who are experiencing emotional suffering. Whether these individuals are depressed, seriously mentally ill, or traumatized victims of war or abuse, all must be heard so that they can heal. This very special form of intervention is called "psychotherapy". But what are the roots of American psychotherapy? How has this healing modality evolved? And what types of philosophical orientations have prevailed?
