Russian Psychotherapy

...An introduction to Russian: History, culture, and psychotherapy. Elms College Maxim M. Arbuzov Spring 2012 Abstract: On March 15, 2012, I landed in Vladivostok, Russia. I was amazed by the diversity and fast growth of the city since my last visit in 2006. Everything has changed the population has quickly grown, and people from around the world are visiting this place that is economically expanding. I seen family, friends, and professionals, which all knew my academic intentions. I talked a lot about social work and counseling, and more specifically: what would they do in times of crisis? Would they seek help? Where? I interviewed a few people of different age brackets, and they all had the same thing to say, for some odd reason; grab a bottle, head over to your best friends house, that is our therapy session. From this I became very interested in one underdeveloped and not heavily researched topic: psychotherapy and counseling in Russia. Introduction It is rather difficult to understand the status of psychotherapy in Russia nowadays, without background information on its history and culture. Russia among other nations has a long history of war and revolutions, which impacted every sphere of life for their populations. Different nations fell under the umbrella of the former “Soviet Union”, which is why Russia is such an interesting country to study because of the vast diversity. Along with diversity the most interesting part researching Russian Psychotherapy is...

Evaluating Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

...Evaluating Psychodynamic psychotherapy Posted March 10, 2006 by Yousif Al Saif • Updated March 13, 2006 Sigmund Freud is one of the founding fathers of modern psychology. He started his work in psychiatry after finishing his medical training in Vienna. He was taught in Paris by one of the most influential psychiatrist in his time Charcot. Charcot tackled hysteria by using hypnosis as a treatment technique. Freud, however, thought that hypnosis is not an effective treatment approach to hysteria and decided to pursue another approach. He later adopted a method of treatment called "free association" where the client says whatever comes to his/her mind and used the resulting stream of strong conscious emotions as a helpful way to his patients (McLeod, 1998). Freud also used dream analysis as a way to enter the subconscious and unveil the suppressed thoughts and memories of patients (Freud, 1900). He also noted key psychotherapeutic phenomenons such as the client-therapist’s “transference” and “counter-transference” and the client’s “resistance”. Freud theories went through considerable modification by the neo-Freudians such as Carl Jung, Otto Rank, and Alfred Adler. Now some psychotherapists base their work broadly on Freud’s work but mainly on neo-Freudians which is called the psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy. The psychodynamic approach gives great importance to childhood experiences and believes that the client’s psychological problems are a direct result of these...

Counseling and Psychotherapy

...Counseling and psychotherapy models & theories Ariam K. Frezghi Liberty University Abstract Counselors and Psychologist have different jobs and strategies but both accomplish the same outcome at the end. The terms Counseling and Psychotherapy are often used interchangeably. Though they have similar meanings with considerable overlap, there are some important distinctions between the two. Counseling is generally used to denote a relatively brief treatment that is focused most upon behavior. Psychotherapy on the other hand is generally a longer term treatment which focuses on more gaining insight into chronic physical and emotional problems. The overall aim of the article is to restimulate research and theory on the relationship. Keywords: Counseling, Psychotherapy, theories, methods Introduction Counseling sometimes is a conversation or series of conversations between a counselor and client. Counseling usually focuses on a specific problem and taking the steps to address or solve it. It often targets a particular symptom or problematic situation and offers suggestions and advice for dealing with it. Problems are discussed in the present-tense, without too much attention on the role of past experiences. Though the titles “counselor” and “advisor” are often used like synonyms, counselors rarely offer advice. Instead, counselors guide clients to discover their own answers and support them through the actions they choose to take. Psychotherapy, like...

Approaches to Psychotherapy and Existential Theory

...Approaches to Psychotherapy and Existential Theory Bonnie Cole Abstract This paper seeks to explain the concept of psychotherapy, and the dominant psychotherapeutic methods used for the treatment of individuals. These methods are: psychoanalytic, humanist, behavioral, and cognitive (jointly called cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT). I further explore existential psychotherapy, as it is the method I found most appealing in my research. I included quotations from several journal articles, and from our textbook, “Discovering Psychology, Fifth Edition”. Approaches to Psychotherapy and Existential Theory Psychotherapy is an official term that normally goes by different names: counseling, treatment, psychiatric therapy, even head shrinking. They all mean the same thing, and have a common goal. Psychotherapy seeks, through the use of trained professionals, to help individuals improve their mental health using a variety of different approaches. A much more comprehensive definition can be found in the textbook Discovering Psychology, Fifth Edition, which states that psychotherapy is: “The treatment of emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal problems through the use of psychological techniques designed to encourage understanding of problems and modify troubling feelings, behaviors, or...

Psychoanalysis is a method of psychotherapy, which helps people develop awareness. During psychoanalysis the client is comfortable generally on the couch and asked to speak freely about anything that comes to mind, which is called, free association. Also during this process most clients will show resistance and transference. Modern approaches of the psychoanalyst are known as ego analyst. Human existential therapy include, client centered therapy, which emphasizes the creation of a warm, therapeutic atmosphere that frees clients to engage in self-exploration and self-expression.

Psychotherapy Final Project

...Psychotherapy Final Project Rafael Ruelas Sport Psychology Capella University Introduction to Theories of Psychotherapy PSY6310 Summer 2013 Dr. Mankoff September 12, 2013 Introduction According to Bateman, Brown and Pedder (2000), psychotherapy refers to the treatment of emotional or mental disorders and adjustment problems through applying psychotherapy techniques as opposed to chemical and biological interventions. Psychotherapy is dependent on verbal exchange between the therapist and the person seeking help-commonly referred to as psychoanalysis. Therapeutic relationships are characterized by mutual trust between the two players with the main objective of helping individuals to change unhealthy and/or destructive behaviors, emotions and thoughts. In this pursuit, therapists combine several techniques including psychodynamics, behavioral and cognitive approaches. Anorexia nervosa There are many and varied psychological disorders in this case, I will focus on anorexia nervosa and its treatment. Anorexia nervosa is a condition that is characterized by refusal to maintain a healthy body weight or intense fear of gaining weight. The patient feels inadequate when he senses he is fat. The condition mainly affects young women although other age groups can also be affected (Bateman & Holmes, 2005). When a patent has anorexia, the desire to lose weight becomes one’s most important preoccupation. The patient does not appreciate his/her condition and cannot...

Measuring People's Attitude Towards Psychotherapy

...1. Introduction Psychotherapy is a process focused on helping you heal and learn more constructive ways to deal with the problems or issues within your life. It can also be a supportive process when going through a difficult period or under increased stress, such as starting a new career or going through a divorce (Hawkins, 2010). Most psychotherapy tends to focus on problem solving and is goal-oriented. That means on the onset of treatment, you and your therapist decide up on which specific changes you would like to make in your life. These goals will often be broken down into smaller attainable objectives and put into a formal treatment plan (Hawkins, 2010). The purpose of this study was to explore public attitudes toward psychotherapy treatment and how they perceive importance of psychotherapy treatment, mental health issues are of ever growing importance in modern society. While there are numerous studies on the attitude of the general public toward psychiatry in general, little research has been done concerning the specific field of psychotherapy (Hawkins, 2010). 2. Literature review 2.1 History of mental illness in the Middle East 2.1.1 Pre-Islamic era: Ancient Egyptians believed that diseases were mainly because of evil spirits or wrath of gods.

Group Psychotherapy

...The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy: An Overview of Chapters 3 and 5 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief overview of Dr. Irvin Yalom’s book (2005), The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy, Chapters 3 and 5. This overview provides a focus on Yalom’s Group Cohesiveness, and the basic task of group therapists. Therapists have a role and responsibility with developing and maintaining groups. According to Dr. Irvin Yalom’s book (2005) The Theory and Practice of Group Therapy, The basic posture of the therapist to a client must be one of concern, acceptance, genuineness and empathy. They must utilize techniques of creating, maintaining and deter any forces that threaten group cohesiveness. For example, I observed a therapist during one of her group sessions where she discussed the rules of attending the group such as tardiness, disruptive behaviors, respect for others and the use of a cell phone during group meetings. All members were aware of the rules and followed them accordingly. There was a particular time where a group member had her cell phone out playing a game on it. The therapist politely asked the group member to put away her phone as it was disruptive to the other group members. The consumer put her phone down then picked it up again and continued to play games on her phone. The therapist stopped the class and removed the member from the group as she was not focused on the meeting and was disruptive to other members. Yalom...

Is Psychotherapy the Answer?

...Depression is a mental health issue that has been around for decades and is still currently one of the leading causes of death among young people. There has been much research done on what could be the most effective treatment for this mental illness. Looking at depression throughout the years, the most effective treatments can be narrowed done to psychotherapy, medication, surgery, self-treatment, and etc. The most prevalent treatment mentioned is psychotherapy, as there are multiple ways to incorporate it. Although there are some negative outlooks of psychotherapy such as societies' negative views, effectiveness and availability. Research has also been done on whether religion or lack thereof can be a co-factor in depression. There are many methods to treating depression, psychotherapy being one of the most effective and efficient known treatment. Over the years, there has been extensive research done to find and understand different treatments for depression, although many have been lost through the ages. There are ways we can try and incorporate aspects of some older treatments into our more newly developed treatments to treat patients more effectively. For example, James Overholser mentions his research of a variety of treatments such as sleep therapy, hydrotherapy, drug treatment, treatment by surgery, etc that were more commonly used near the 1800s (Overholser. J, 2002). The treatments that are provided today are not as effective as doctors would like, and there is...

Psychotherapy 2015

...Psychotherapy, treatment of mental or emotional disorders or personal problems using psychological techniques that rely heavily on verbal and emotional communication and other symbolic behavior. Psychotherapy differs in two ways from the informal help one person gives another. First, it is conducted by a psychotherapist who is specially trained and licensed or otherwise culturally sanctioned. Second, psychotherapy is guided by theories about the sources of distress and the methods needed to alleviate it. Because communication is the primary means of healing in most forms of psychotherapy, the relationship between the therapist and patient, or client, is much more important than in other medical treatments. The therapist’s personality influences the patient and may be used quite deliberately to achieve therapeutic ends. Psychotherapy is often used in conjunction with other treatments, especially psychotropic drug therapy (seePsychoactive Drug; Psychiatry). These drugs may be prescribed by a mental health professional, usually a psychiatrist (a physician who specializes in the treatment of psychological problems). (See also Mental Disorders; Mental Health.) Attempts to ameliorate emotional and mental disorders through psychological means date from ancient time. Psychotherapeutic practices based on scientific principles date from about 1772, when the Austrian physician Franz Anton Mesmer defined and used a form of hypnosis called animal magnetism. Neuroses were treated in the...
