The first phase of psychotherapy involves clinical interview and the use of multidimensional psychological assessment measures to gather information about the client. The aims for this assessment phase are to have a preliminary understanding of the problems and to develop some initial hypotheses about how and why the client is having the difficulties that brought him/her to therapy. In fact, the assessment phase will be continued throughout the subsequent phases of the therapy.
The subsequent phases of psychotherapy involves treating the whole person rather than only alleviating client’s psychological distress. This multidimensional approach includes treating the client’s mental, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive aspects in consideration of one’s personality traits. This holistic approach is to help the client to achieve therapy goals set collaboratively with the therapist during the assessment phase. A combination of different modalities of therapy will be tailor-made for an individual client after a thorough understanding of the problems related to the client’s initial complaints.
