Family psychoeducation includes teaching coping strategies and problem-solving skills to families, friends and/or caregivers to help them deal more effectively with the individual. It improves the knowledge patients and their families have; provides a greater understanding of the importance and benefits of medication; and reduces distress, confusion and anxiety within the family which may, in turn, help the individual's recovery.

The task of the therapist is to view the client in the context of his or her social environment and to assist the client to examine and deal with his or her intrapsychic conflicts and the impinging environmental factors as they take priority in the course of treatment. The therapist assists the client to gain insight into his or her conflicts and to manipulate the environmental factors that may be contributing to the problem. The vehicle for treatment is a therapeutic personal relationship in which the client's trust in the therapist, the therapist's observations and feelings about the client, and the interaction between the client and therapist lead to a mutual understanding of the nature of the problem and the appropriate methods to use for resolution.
  • Psychotherapy/Psychoanalysis (18)
    RD-6800.6500

    Psychotherapy/Psychoanalysis

    RD-6800.6500

    Programs that specialize in providing therapeutic interventions that are based on the theory developed by Freud that the roots of human behavior lie in unconscious motivation and conflict. It takes as its point of departure the concept of the libido (sexual energy), and suggests that the individual's overall development and ability to adjust to life's problems depend on how sexual energy develops in the child, whether it is normal or repressed and distorted into unhealthy channels. Psychoanalysis as a therapy attempts to overcome repressions, often by exploring their origins in childhood in order to release energy for healthy, normal living. Psychoanalysts accomplish this largely by means of free association, dream analysis and working through transference issues over time to overcome resistance and get at the sources of the unconscious impulses. Psychoanalytic psychotherapists accomplish the same objective through utilization of more directive interpretation and a face-to-face therapeutic setting, and focus on the relationship of present behavior to childhood patterns rather than utilize free association.
