I think that the first most helpful type of psychotherapy would be cognitive psychotherapy because this type of therapy starts by teaching the brain how to forget past problems and begin to focus on more important and recent issues. This type of therapy can help people with many different types of problems and helps them with a more easy type of therapy.
The next most helpful type of psychotherapy would be humanistic psychotherapy because this type of therapy strengthens the relationship between the person that is getting the mental health treatment and the psychologist. This type of therapy is important, so that the client feels safe and comfortable with the person that they are talking to.
Next I think the most helpful type of psychotherapy would be behavioral psychotherapy because this type of psychotherapy helps the person to fix their unhealthy habits, such as unhealthy relationships or anything in their lives that is having bad affects on their mental health. This is helpful because this would reduce the amount of things that are worsening their mental health.
I think the last most helpful type of psychotherapy would be psychodynamic psychotherapy because this type of therapy allows a person to release the tension that they have, so that their healing process will not come off as more aggressive, rather it would be helpful for the person. This would allow the person that is getting the mental health treatment to be helped with less stress and anger than they would without this kind of therapy.
One thought on “First Impression Post; Mental Health Treatment”
Although my list is significantly different from yours, I can completely understand why you would choose to place the the different therapies in the order that you did. All of the different types of therapy are fairly unique in their own ways and methodologies, and can all be very effective if they are carried out properly. As we have learned, some types of therapy may not work well for some individuals, but others can have profound effects on their condition. I believe that the most important take away from these different types of therapy is that all of these methods are better than individuals trying to work their way through mental illnesses without any sort of help whatsoever. Not only that, but all of these therapies are proven to be very effective when it comes to helping people improve and lessen the effects of their mental illnesses. Thank you for sharing!
