Healthcare Perspectives - Psychotherapeutics (Multi-Dimensional)

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological techniques as an interpersonal, relational intervention to alleviate dysfunctional behaviors, emotions, feelings, thoughts, or habits and to help people achieve greater levels of self awareness. Through verbal and nonverbal communication with a mental health professional, Psychotherapy may be as simple as addressing everyday problems in relationships or realizing personal goals or more complex in the treatment of specific forms of diagnosable mental illness. Therefore, Psychotherapy is recommended for individuals experiencing symptoms of psychological distress or for those desiring deeper personal transformation.

“Multi-Dimensional” Psychotherapeutics encompasses the entire landscape of human identity and potentiality as a multi-faceted and multi-layered combination of physical, mental, cultural and spiritual impulses. The adaptive nature of Psychotherapeutics to meet the needs of individuals and society is an ever-evolving field within the healthcare system for people to transform destructive patterns of behavior into healthier, more fulfilling ones.

There are a wide variety of psychotherapeutic modalities (individual, group, family) and theoretical approaches practiced by a number of different mental health professionals. Each one may be beneficial depending on the needs and personality of the individual.

There are several models of psychotherapy:

  • Cognitive behavioral
  • Psychodynamic
  • Existential
  • Humanistic/Supportive
  • Brief Therapy (sometimes called "Strategic Therapy”)
  • Systemic Therapy (including Family Therapy and Marriage Counseling)
  • Psycho-Spiritual Therapy

Psychotherapists are trained, certified, and licensed depending on the requirements of the jurisdiction of their practice. Clinical psychologists, social workers, marriage-family therapists, trained nurses, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, mental health counselors, school counselors and professionals of other mental health disciplines may practice Psychotherapy. Psychiatrists, primarily focusing on the biological aspects of mental health conditions, are also medically trained and certified for the possible use of prescription medication in addition to concurrent psychotherapy. Psychologists are concerned and trained primarily in psychological assessment and research and, in addition, receive extensive training in psychotherapy.
