The term psychotherapy is derived from the Greek psyche meaning “soul,” and therapeia, meaning “healing”. For the ancient Fathers, the human person and psychological functions are intimately connected with an understanding of salvation as healing: a return to humanity’s original creation in the image and likeness of God.
