In conclusion, treatment outcomes in different domains seem to be linked to the client’s motivation to attend treatment and the feeling of being coerced into therapy, regardless of mandate (2). It has been argued that there is, potentially, an element of coercion in every clinical encounter (80) and the perception of coercion has a variety of determinants, many of which are dependent on the quality of relationship with the service provider (45). Therefore, reducing feelings of coercion might improve treatment outcomes, prevent disengagement from services, and ameliorate therapeutic relationships (5). Facilitating the...

Which is why we asked several anxiety experts to clear things up. Below, you’ll find their illuminating insights. Living with an anxiety disorder can be exceptionally difficult.

This article will take a look at two additional therapy practices that have been widely used by the U.S. and abroad. Specifically designed for trauma, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) works when a therapist leads a patient through a series of lateral eye movements while the patient focuses on traumatic memories. The goal is to reprocess these memories in an adaptive way — eliminating emotional distress and reducing physiological arousal.  Francine Shapiro, PhD, discovered the effects of EMDR by understanding “dual awareness”. When engaging in bilateral stimulation with memory, th...

ConclusionThe preliminary nature of these results do not justify firm conclusions. However, the specific variables of perfectionism, need for approval, and client initiative show promise as moderators of treatment efficacy for comorbid depression and alcohol/cannabis use problems. Further research is justified to determine whether these factors can assist in tailoring the modality and strategies offered in the delivery of psychotherapy to this population.

Conclusion The study will have to be interpreted in the context of other research into yoga and depression. But taken in isolation, it doesn't provide firm evidence that yoga is beneficial for depression. The findings are applicable to a very specific population group: people with moderately severe depression who took antidepressants (often alongside other psychological therapy) and had no other mental health illness. They also hadn't previously practised yoga, but must have had an interest in doing so as they responded to advertisements. This means the groups by no means represent all people with depression symptoms.&nb...

Conclusion OCD can take all kinds of forms, but the key principles in managing it remain the same. Start questioning the beliefs your cycle of thoughts and actions is based on, and at the same time work on breaking the cycle by extending the time between the thought and the action. When Daniel came to me the idea that, he was suffering from a simple, treatable condition like OCD was unthinkable, but after a few short weeks of treatment his symptoms had all but vanished and his mood and life were back on track. OCD shouldn’t be able to ruin your life, so follow these simple steps to put your intrusive thoughts back in their place.
