Abstract

In this paper, the author presented the assimilation and development of Western psychotherapy in Korea in their historical perspectives since the introduction of Western psychoanalysis and dynamic psychotherapy to Korean cultural soil. The author also described in detail the present status of psychotherapy training in Korea. The philosophical goal of training and development of Korean psychotherapy has been and will be to unify and integrate Western psychotherapy and traditional Eastern Tao (Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism) which, the author believes, is the highest form of psychotherapy.
