Anxiety Treatment Works Better With Active Patients

Understanding how to begin therapy and make the most of it will help make treatment more effective.

Eastwood (I-Newswire) December 2, 2013 - Therapy works best when patients attend all scheduled appointments. The effectiveness of therapy depends on active participation. It requires time, effort, and regularity. As therapy begins, patients need to establish some goals with a psychiatrist. They should spend time periodically reviewing progress with the psychiatrist.

If patients do not like the psychiatrist's approach or if the psychiatrist is not helping, then patients need to talk about and seek a second opinion if both agree. Never discontinue therapy abruptly.

Identify sources of stress. Keep a journal and note stressful situations and positive events as well. Priorities need to be restructured to emphasise positive and effective behaviour. Time needs to be made for recreational and pleasurable activities.

Patients need to explain and assert needs to someone they trust. They should write in their journal to express their feelings. Patients need to focus on positive outcomes and finding methods for reducing and managing stress.

Therapy involves evaluating thoughts and behaviours, identifying stresses that contribute to the condition, and work to modify both. People who actively participate in therapy recover more quickly and have fewer relapses.

Keep in mind that therapy is a treatment that addresses specific causes of mental illness. It is not a quick fix; it takes longer to begin to work than medication, but there is evidence that the effects last longer. Medication may be needed immediately in cases of severe mental illness, but the combination of therapy and medicine is very effective.

Therapy helps people understand their behaviours, emotions, and ideas that contribute to the illness and teaches them how to modify them. Therapy also helps identify and understand life problems and events that contribute to their illness and helps people understand which aspects of those problems they may be able to solve or improve.

Therapy also allows people to regain a sense of control and pleasure in life. They will learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills. There are four kinds of therapy format - individual, group, marital or couples, and family therapy.
