Abstract

Psychotherapy is an interpersonal process designed to bring about modifications of feelings, cognitions, attitudes, and behavior that have proven to be troublesome. Psychotherapy is a major component of most stress management programs and treatment for stress-related disorders. Emerging data establish it as having an efficacy in the same order as that of psychotropic medication for depression and anxiety and to be arguably more appropriate to management of stress. © 2007
