Communication and Therapy for Mental Health Treatment
Talk therapy, commonly referred to as psychotherapy, is a beneficial treatment for many mental health disorders including depression, anxiety, addictions, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, and more. Psychotherapy can be conducted in a one-on-one format, where the patient discusses his or her worries, routines, feelings, etc, with one trained professional in a controlled environment, or in a group setting where the patient is joined by his or her family members, friends, or others with similar mental health issues to do a “round robin” sharing session with the trained professional guiding the conversation. Though it is important to seek the help of a mental health physician when confronting a mental health disorder, communication with others such as friends or family members, can help as well.
While therapists certainly encourage their clients to share their feelings, they often respond with more than just good listening. Trained therapists will usually try to persuade the patient into changes thought and behavior patterns in order to relieve some of the symptoms caused by the patient’s mental illness. A therapist might suggest small steps that the patient can take in order to reach a larger goal in time. For instance, if a person suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder, the therapist may suggest rituals that the person should attempt to stop, even if stopping that particular ritual brings discomfort and anxiety at first. Many therapists believe in the importance of facing the feelings of discomfort in order to face the problem rather than avoid it. Once one or two rituals have been successfully removed from the person’s life, he or she will often gain a feeling of confidence, which will aid as the person attempts to stop other forms of ritualizing.
