PSYCHOTHERAPISTS:WHAT ARE THEY?

Psychotherapy is a technical term for therapy, it’s the recovery of one's mind without the use of

medication. A psychotherapist utilizes their ability to understand and read people to provide

psychological methods of recovery, this is achieved through regularly scheduled appointments

with the patient to offer ideas and methods to overcome the issues brought to them. For a long

time therapy only existed through psychiatrists who focus more on prescriptions medication

treatment than the complete evaluation of the patient’s mental state. Psychotherapy is designed to

improve the state of mental health through certain tactics proven to treat mental disorders. Some

even call it pseudoscience, but this kind of therapy has proven to work far better than a

prescription ever could. Medication can regulate one's impulses, but it can’t offer them effective

methods to live in this society with their illness. Psychotherapy offers just that.

There are thousands of techniques used, some are as simple as talking and writing out on paper

what’s going on in someone’s head. Some treatments take much longer, several sessions, and on

occasion aren’t just between the patient and therapist. Sometimes Psychotherapists bring in

families or friends as long as the patient allows it, offering group therapy to help everyone

support the patient in need, to understand the illness, and to help fix the problem at hand. They

may even include psychologists, social workers, family therapists or counsellors. Most

Psychotherapists have a strong background in psychology, it allows them to diagnose and treat

the mental disorder much faster than your average counsellor.

Psychotherapy has been developing for decades. It stems from the 19th-century movement

referred to as the “moral treatment” movement. This was founded in western culture and

philosophers discovered the use in mental treatment and diagnosis. Eventually, they began to use

techniques like hypnotism until the early 1950’s when they began to delve further into

behavioural analysis. This allowed psychologists and other like-minded doctors to study the

patient and illness in question to determine how to diagnose and fix the problem. This was a

huge step in history as it’s one of the many techniques used today.

As the decades rolled by, Psychotherapists developed these techniques into one profession,

allowing behavioural analysis and medications to mix together, creating a process that allows

these therapists to come together for the aid of those patients in need. These findings aided in the

evolution of therapy and medication, paving the way for an entirely fresh perspective in

medicine and how we treat others with mental illness. This allowed people to truly dive deep into

the problem, to understand it and manipulate it until it was controlled. It changed the course of

everything, and every passing year these methods improve. Psychotherapy is currently one of the

Nation's leading professions, rising further up the ladder as more philosophers and medics get

involved. It is, what most would call, the beginning of a new medical era.
