What is the difference between psychotherapy and psychoanalysis?

Everyone who practices psychotherapy is first trained to be a general practitioner, also called a psychotherapist. We learn the foundational model of Carl Rogers—the “client-centered” approach—which is built on the values and skills of congruence, empathy, and positive regard for the client and his or her struggles, strengths, and weaknesses. It harnesses the power of a genuine relationship to facilitate a client’s natural tendency toward growth and development. We are also trained in the foundational model of cognitive behavioral therapy—CBT—which is a theory and technique for addressing the influence of our thoughts on our behaviors and emotions, and seeks to correct our distorted thinking so that we can solve problems and deal with life in a more practical and effective way.
