Objectives The aim of this systemic review was to summarize medical records of Korean medicine based psychotherapy and investigate its therapeutic mechanism.Methods We searched articles on Korean neuropsychiatry in Korean databases. Subsequently, we selected and analyzed medical records on Korean medicine based-psychotherapy that met inclusion criteria.Results Fifty-five medical records were included. They were classified into the following 5 categories. Five minds mutual restriction therapy in 19 medical records; counseling and persuading therapy in 12 medical records; moving essence and changing Qi therapy in 10 medical records; Kyungjapyungji psychotherapy in 2 medical records; and suggestion psychotherapy in 11 medical records.Conclusions The results indicated that emotion is mainly used for cure. Buddhism affects Korean medicine based psychotherapy. Korean medicine based psychotherapy corresponds to western psychotherapy such as short-term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP), supportive psychotherapy, cognitive therapy, behavior therapy, and guided imagery.

Objectives The aim of this study was to develop a new Korean psychotherapeutic model in terms of emotion.Methods We compared the five minds mutual restriction therapy with short-term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP). We summarized 4 similarities and 4 differences of these two models of psychotherapy.Results 1. Short-term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP) needs active intervention of the therapist, with a restricted therapeutic focus and session. It blends with the present state of oriental neuropsychiatric clinics, and is suitable for Korean medical psychiatrists to apply short-term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP) to their clinical settings. 2. Short-term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP) and five minds mutual restriction therapy are similar, in that they both mainly use the emotions, needing restricted therapeutic focus and sessions, and active intervention of the therapist. 3. Short-term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP) and five minds mutual restriction therapy are different in their methods of arousing therapeutic emotion, the necessity of the patient being unconscious, the standard of patient selection, and the importance of follow up.Conclusions It is necessary to develop a new Korean psychotherapeutic model, which amalgamates the advantages of both methods of psychotherapy, and considers the present state of clinic. It is necessary that the Korean medical psychiatrists introspect themselves, since they are not merely therapists but also a role model for the patient.

Objectives The purpose of this study is to report that a patient with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) significantly responds to Korean medical treatments and psychotherapy.Methods We treated the patient with Korean medical treatments (acupuncture and herbal medication) and Melonis Calyx Vomiting Therapy. We also used psychotherapy including Li-Gyeung-Byun-Qi therapy. The patient was diagnosed by DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for OCD. We used Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory-Revised-Korean (OCI-R-K), Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Beck’s Depression Inventory (BDI), and Beck’s Anxiety Inventory (BAI) to evaluate the patient.Results OCI-R-K score was decreased from 39 points to 9 points. BDI score was decreased from 14 points to 6 points. BAI score was decreased from 25 points to 13 points.Conclusions This study suggests that Korean medical treatment is an effective way to treat patients who suffer from OCD.

Journal of Oriental Neuropsychiatry, volume 27, issue 2, 2016, Pages 77~87
DOI : 10.7231/jon.2016.27.2.077
Objectives This study was aimed to analyze the reports of qualitative research published in domestic Korean medicine journals.Methods Eleven published qualitative research studies were selected for analysis. Selected reports were analyzed by Consolidated Criteria for Reporting Qualitative Research (COREQ), a reporting guideline for qualitative research.Results In the 1st domain, descriptions of personal characteristics, interviewer`s bias or assumption were insufficient. In the 2nd domain, descriptions such as presence of non-participants, research questions for the interview guidelines, data saturation and transcript return to participants were insufficient. In the 3rd domain, descriptions of items related to number of data coder, participants evaluating the finding, and clarity of minor themes were insufficient.Conclusions Qualitative studies in Korean Medicine have increased. COREQ should be considered by investigators who report qualitative research, in order to improve the quality of research.

Objectives In human, there is a diversity in the breathing pattern, for instance inspiratory and expiratory time, volume, breathing frequency, and breath-to-breath variation. Expecially, respiratory variability can provide important information about breathing regulation and physiological flexibility. it is significant to not only breathing index but also physiological index.Methods Thus this paper reviews the literature on respiratory variability with the aim of clinical application.Results We could find the interrelationships and respiratory variability between emotions, psychopathy, sighing, mental and physical activity.Conclusions As a result, respiratory variability can serve an important physiological index in the clinical area and reflects how our bodies act in diverse environments under various condition.

DOI : 10.7231/jon.2016.27.2.103
Objectives The purpose of this study was to introduce Chinese Taoist Cognitive Psychotherapy (CTCP), a psychotherapy based on Oriental culture, and review related research to understand its efficacy.Methods Relevant articles were searched from CNKI, WANFANG, Pubmed, EMBASE, AMED and CENTRAL.Results Thirty-seven studies were selected based on our inclusion criteria, which included 31 RCTs. The overall risk of bias of the RCTs was unclear or high. In the total relevant studies, the target diseases were most commonly depression and anxiety disorder. Generally, CTCP combined with Western medicine was significantly more effective than prescribing medicine alone.Conclusions CTCP can be useful for several psychiatric disorders including depression and anxiety disorder; however, more high-quality clinical trials are needed to confirm its efficacy.
