At Divinity Recovery, Inc., we offer psychotherapy as a form of therapy for clients. Psychotherapy, often called talk therapy is a crucial part in a client’s path to recovery. Psychotherapy is defined as a process by which psychological problems or disorders are treated by a trained counselor with a background in psychological methods and theories. The goal of psychotherapy is to increase someone’s overall mental health and well-being.
Types of Psychotherapy
There are many different forms of psychotherapy or talk therapy. They each have their own functions, positives, and negatives. They are each to be used when the situation calls for them and if the therapist is qualified in them. Some of these types of psychotherapy include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectal behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, psychoanalysis, humanistic therapy, and supportive therapy. As previously stated, each modality of psychotherapy has their own unique benefits and whether that would be necessary to help achieve long-term recovery varies from case-to-case.
What is Psychotherapy and Why is it Beneficial?
Psychotherapy is just plain and simply put, having a conversation. During psychotherapy, a client talks to a trained professional about their problems and life experiences. The client and therapist will learn about the client’s moods, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Psychotherapy will help the client learn to take control of their life and respond to difficult situations with healthy coping skills. Talk therapy can take place in a one-on-one or group setting. A client and their psychologist may discuss daily challenges, long-standing issues, and previous traumas. The therapist will encourage the client to open up about their thoughts, feelings, and things troubling them. Psychotherapy acts as a roadmap for therapists. It guides them through the process of understanding their client and developing solutions. Psychotherapy sessions can span many weeks, months, or even years. During psychotherapy, the therapist and client develop a relationship based on trust, confidentiality, and openness.
