Psychological and Biological Treatments

Psychotherapy

  1. Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change and overcome problems in desired ways.
  2. Insight-oriented psychotherapy relies on conversation between the therapist and the client. It helps people through understanding and expressing feelings, motivations, beliefs, fears and desires.
  3. In free association, psychoanalytic patients are invited to relate whatever comes into their minds during the analytic session, and not to censor their thoughts.
  4. In psychodynamic psychotherapy, working through is seen as the process of repeating, elaborating, and amplifying interpretations. It is believed that such a process is critical to the success of therapy.
  5. Interpersonal psychotherapy is a time-limited treatment that encourages the patient to regain control of mood and functioning. It is based on the principle that there is a relationship between the way people communicate and interact with others and their mental health.
