Topic: List of psychotherapies

  List of psychotherapies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is an incomplete list and new or minor approaches are still being added.
See the main article Psychotherapy for a description of what psychotherapy is and how it developed.
This list contains some approaches that may not call themselves a psychotherapy but have a similar aim, of improving mental health and well being through talk and other means of communication.

 Psychotherapy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Psychotherapy is aimed at these problems, and attempts to solve — or help people themselves to solve — them via a number of different approaches and techniques.
Given that psychotherapy is restricted to conversations, practitioners do not have to be medically qualified, but to guarantee the medical safety of psychotherapy, a basic acquaintance with psychiatric and psychological considerations is typically a part of their training.
Psychotherapy outcome research -in which the effectiveness of psychotherapy is measured by questionnaires given to patients before, during, and after treatment- has had difficulty distinguishing between the different types of therapy.

 Anxiety Zone - Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is a set of techniques intended to cure or improve psychological and behavioral problems in humans.
The commonest form of psychotherapy is direct personal contact between therapist and patient, mainly in the form of talking.
Because sensitive topics are often discussed during psychotherapy, therapists are expected, and usually legally bound, to respect patient privacy and client confidentiality.

 © PSYCHOMEDIA - JOURNAL OF EUROPEAN PSYCHOANALYSIS - Sergio Contardi - Therapy in Psychoanalysis
Consequently, the members of parliament have resorted to simply removing the word "psychoanalysis" from the list of psychotherapies leaving the question open as to whether or not psychoanalysis was in fact included.
In my opinion psychotherapy does not include psychoanalysis not because psychoanalysis is a supertherapy of sorts, as it has on occasion been referred to, but that an analysis is always an inextricable web of therapy and subjective formation.
Psychotherapy is essentially concerned with the immediate welfare of the patient, attempting to eliminate the symptom in the briefest possible time.

The psychotherapies are described in written treatment manuals so that other therapists can apply the same treatment in roughly the same way with clients who have similar problems.
The field of psychotherapy research is a relatively new one, and therefore many therapies, which may prove to be beneficial, have simply not yet been studied.
For each psychotherapy listed with each problem, we briefly describe the therapy; this description was written by the investigators who studied or developed the therapy.

When psychotherapy is preformed by a physician, usually a psychiatrist, the relationships have both psychotherapeutic and physician/ patient components.
Here is a list of several different therapies: It seems that each school of psychotherapy believes that they are the most useful for most occasions.
This list of psychotherapies is incomplete, but all therapies listed here have proven track records, though little in the way of reproducible scientific studies.

 A Component Analysis of Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Depression
Beck and his associates are quite specific about the hypothesized active ingredients of CT, stating throughout their treatment manual (Beck et al., 1979) that interventions aimed at cognitive structures or core schema are the active change mechanisms.
After qualifying for the study, participants were randomly assigned to one of the three treatment conditions after matching to ensure group equivalence on the following variables: number of previous episodes of depression, presence or absence of dysthymia, severity of depression, gender, and marital status (married, divorced, single, or widowed).
These findings run contrary to hypotheses generated by the cognitive model of depression put forth by Beck and his associates (1979), who proposed that direct efforts aimed at modifying negative schema are necessary to maximize treatment outcome and prevent relapse.

To emphasize the agency of people seeking for psychotherapy, they are often called clients, but psychotherapy as a method of treatment is regulated, at least in most Western countries, by the laws concerning patients and their rights.
While having benefits for patients with ailments such as bipolar disorder, impulse problems, schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder, drugs of late have begun to be used as a 'quick fix' and are gaining less favor in the therapeutic community.

 New Age Psychotherapies
A psychotherapy is a treatment technique for mental or emotional disorders.
Another common thread is the belief that the patient must discover the cause of his or her problem to be helped.

Specifically, the challenge to psychotherapy and psychotherapists has been to show the world that therapy can be re-invented so that it costs less, works better, and is less vague and time consuming to implement.
The therapies placed on this list have characteristics in common that make them different than the process oriented sort of psychotherapy you may have known in the past.
While not perfect creations, the therapies on this list have each been extensively studied and represent the state of the art in terms of psychotherapeutic programs that are known to work.

 Manual for Ibogaine Therapy
The patient, a forty year old woman was provided a dose of 8 mg/kg of purified ibogaine for purposes of psychotherapy from which she died approximately four hours after administration of ibogaine.
The dose given was the lowest dose associated with an ibogaine related fatality that has been recorded and the autopsy found significant blockage of the main arteries to the heart.
What does appear evident is that contact with non-addicted persons is generally beneficial for patients and that continued contact with users of drugs that cause dependence is detrimental to a goal of abstinence if that is the endpoint desired.

Using these criteria, independent reviewers (Chambless et al., 1998) placed EMDR, exposure therapy, and stress inoculation therapy on a list of “probably efficacious treatments;” no other therapies were judged to be empirically supported by controlled research for any PTSD population.
Although these studies indicated that eye movements may contribute to clinical treatment outcome, the aggregate results are inconclusive because of the poor methodology typically used in these studies.
Although the obtaining of a full history is a procedure followed in most psychotherapies, in EMDR it has additional theoretical importance.

 Treatment Modalities and Psychotherapies
The sad fact is that no known therapy is effective with narcissism itself, though a few therapies are reasonably successful as far as coping with some of its effects goes (behavioural modification).
It is an intensive psychotherapy based on psychoanalytic theory without the (very important) element of free association.
The reason narcissism is under-reported and healing over-stated is that therapists are being fooled by smart narcissists.

The effects of the tasks are carefully monitored in each individual and the overall efficacy of the strategies used have been evaluated in controlled clinical trials.
I include under the rubric of behavioural psychotherapies the cognitive psychotherapies such as rational emotive therapy, cognitive therapy, stress inoculation training, and problem-solving strategies, because they too emphasise goals and tasks and include a significant behavioural component.
My own view is that titles such as cognitive-behavioural psychotherapist are too cumbersome and the general trend within the speciality is towards integration of the various approaches and determining which therapeutic strategy is best for which type of patient.

Also, until the 1980s, psychodynamic therapy, with its emphasis on inner fantasy rather than lived experience, was the primary, if not the only, psychotherapy taught, and the one least compatible with understanding the real lived experience of other family members.
This list of psychotherapies is controversial and may be subject to change.
Although residents will always have to contend with supervisor differences (indeed, the hallmark of an excellent program is resident exposure to a wide variety of models and styles), it is still difficult for residents to be faced with supervisors whose advice is directly contradictory.
