This book provides an overview of the foundations of Chinese psychotherapy, based on a full consideration of Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist teachings. Serving as a reliable and practical guide to coping with life’s adversities, the book offers therapeutic techniques to guide clinical practice based on the potential mutual enrichment of these teachings and current psychotherapies, research, and practice. It aims to guide readers towards authentic, durable happiness with novel approaches to a variety of mental health problems.

Among the topics addressed:

  • Cultural heritages and mental health
  • Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist techniques for self-enlightenment psychotherapy
  • Psi mechanisms and related training models
  • Foundations of Chinese Psychotherapies combines modern clinical methods and traditional teachings to form a unique approach to mental health and well-being. It will be a valuable resource for mental health professionals and others who seek to intervene in a variety of mental health problems.

    "A systematic introduction to indigenous Chinese psychotherapy is long overdue.Explicating human nature as envisioned by traditional Chinese thinkers, this book is a timely answer to the increasingly contested question of what it means to be human in an era when gene editing keeps tinkering nature’s design. "

    Louise Sundararajan, Ph.D., Ed.D., Fellow of the American Psychological Association; Chair and founder of the Task Force on Indigenous Psychology.

    "This is an important book. It builds on the work of K.-S. Yang and K.-K. Hwang in their hope for an indigenous Chinese psychology. This book is the next installment in that progression. The world-wide community of scholars needs to know what an indigenous psychology looks like that is sensitive to the insights of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. This book makes that contribution and it is my hope that it will be widely read."

    Alvin Dueck, PhD, Distinguished Senior Professor of Psychology, Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, USA

    Foundations of Chinese Psychotherapies is a valuable introduction to how the Confucian, Taoist, and Buddhist traditions understand the human psyche, and in particular psychic abilities. Yung-Jong Shiah has a unique perspective on these topics, having been trained in both Eastern and Western traditions, and through his deep familiarity with how science has been used to study these intriguing topics.
