Understanding Therapy

In this section you will find a step-by-step self-diagnosing guide to counseling and therapy, written by Steven James Bartlett Ph.D.

What a reader might take away from these preliminary remarks are these suggestions:

* to accept the fact that it is becoming harder with the passage of time to find one’s way to a mental health clinician who is notrecipe-oriented, due to the in-fashion monopoly that prescribes cognitive-behavioral therapy, and due to the pressures on the healthcare system to process people and their problems faster and at lower cost; and, finally,

* to realize that, when it comes to problems of living, those who are willing to accept a healthy measure of responsibility for their own choice of practitioner and treatment are most likely to find a practitioner and a treatment that meet their individual needs.
