Abstract

Traditional Eastern approaches to mental health have an important contribution to make to the future of Western psychotherapies. Common to these approaches is a recognition of the importance of the causal connection between mental and physical self-regulation and emotional and physical well being. The authors describe several applications of Eastern, and especially Japanese approaches to psychotherapy to a variety of Western psychotherapeutic paradigms. A central focus is on the important role that Eastern approaches to psychotherapy play in helping clients regain human feeling (ninjyo) and a sense of community while overcoming feelings of individualistic separateness and agentic isolation.
