Abstract:

What is psychotherapy? This question has been asked of me several times during the forty years I have practiced as a psychiatrist - sometimes with genuine curiosity but often with derision and cynicism. Some make a joke; "You mean, you treat patients just by talking to them?. That is a good way to make money" they say. "You get to hear interesting stories and then you get hearing them"
