Many schools of therapy and psychotherapy have been introduced by Western culture to the world and offer a plethora of basic, similar methodologies. Others offer specific, relatable hypotheses and particular, precise methods. The good news is that all are useful to a variety of differing cultures. In the wake of Western psychotherapies, if the cultural aspects are not ignored, we may obtain optimal benefits for non-Western cultures (e.g. Middle Eastern) in therapeutic treatments. Each psychotherapeutic approach has its own structure, hypotheses and assumptions about human psychological well-being. Some of them are scientifically proven and applied all over the world, providing benefit to those in need. Although theoretical assumptions are applicable to clinical and non-clinical populations, each approach may not be culturally adaptable, nor is it necessarily capable of being adaptable to a different culture, due to its complex nature. In Western societies, diverse schools of psychotherapy have been condemned for their inability to welcome an ethnodiversity to their methodologies .
