Overview

The director of the Cognitive Humanistic Institute in Thailand introduces cognitive humanistic therapy (CHT) as an approach to psychotherapy, self-therapy, and personal practice emphasizing human rather than divine matters, reason, and—unlike cognitive behavior therapy—mind skills amenable to improvement. With case study examples and descriptions of such CHT practices as challenging the illusions of an independent self and mental efficiency, Nelson-Jones presents the skilled client model, i.e. a collaborative practitioner-client relationship toward cultivation of such higher-order skills. Among CHT research implications is the view of many of people's problems in Western materialistic societies as systemic rather than individual. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
