PSYC 630: Talking Cures: The Evolution of Psychotherapy Report a Broken Link

Psychology 630 is a study of the past history and emerging trends in psychotherapy. It traces the development of human change therapy back to the beginnings of recorded history and forward to our postmodern era. It looks at the evolution of our insights into human nature through both Eastern and Western philosophies. It considers issues of separation and convergence within the discipline.
