This chapter provides a comprehensive insight into the practice of psychotherapy while being a psychiatrist. From reflective thought and universal traits, to specific psychotherapeutic techniques for specific population groups, the chapter aims to cover important topics on this issue. This task is completed with the help of a clinical case, in which different psychotherapeutic techniques are exemplified. This chapter presents relevant findings proving that psychotherapeutic treatments are alive and well in psychiatry and will remain so in the future. However, the field needs more focused research to detect subtle changes that occur during the psychotherapeutic process. This chapter prompts trainees and young psychiatrists to be aware of this and to search for opportunities to train in psychotherapy.
