The main focus of my research project is to examine the efficacy of body-mind-spirit psychotherapy for patients with major depression and those with cancer. The mechanism of neuroendocrine function behind the efficacy of body-mind-spirit therapy was examined. We found the mechanism of a positive effect produced by psychotherapy might be related to its role in enhancing coping capacity and thus improving diurnal cortisol patterns of normal biological HPA-axis functions. The long-term impact of therapy on enhancing psychological well-being and physiological responses to stress is the current focus of the study.
