The broad thematic focus of this Special Edition on contemporary phenomenological research in the field of psychotherapy more specifically encompasses eight recent studies that examine potentially impactful human experiences of special clinical relevance. Collectively, the diverse issues explored invariably touch the core of our humanness and are, therefore, both essential to explore and yet often difficult to face, especially in a psychotherapeutic setting. More specifically, the human experiences addressed in the studies reported on in this edition include loss and grieving, self-empowerment, body image dissatisfaction, substance abuse, trauma and victimization, interrole conflict, homelessness and other clinically significant complications of co-existing disorders, psychiatric institutionalization and self-acceptance, and sexual orientation formation.
