Treatment guides related to all subjects for Adults

Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation Techniques

treatment guide
Relaxation skills are excellent tools for the treatment of stress, anxiety, and anger. In addition to being easy to use, relaxation techniques are some of the few tools that offer an immediate sense of relief from the symptoms of mental illness. Over time, therapists develop their own scripts, tips, and tricks for teaching relaxation skills more effectively...
Trauma Narratives

Trauma Narratives

treatment guide
Most adults have at least a few memories that are downright painful. On the lighter end, there are those embarrassing experiences that cause you to cringe, even decades later. Then, there’s heavier stuff, like heartbreak, loss, and regret. These memories are more than a series of facts and images—they also carry powerful emotions that feel like a punch to the gut every time they surface...
Grief Psychoeducation

Grief Psychoeducation

treatment guide
Everyone deals with grief differently. Some cry for days, hardly taking a moment to care for themselves. Others laugh, whether nervously, or because they manage pain with humor. Others feel numb, and wonder why they aren't crying or laughing like the others. Each of these reactions is normal—there's no right way to grieve...
Dealing with Dropout: Client Retention

Dealing with Dropout: Client Retention

treatment guide
Client dropout from psychotherapy is a huge problem. A recent meta-analysis found that about 1 in 5 patients leave treatment before they have reached an acceptable level of recovery, against the recommendation of their therapist. The consequences of premature client dropout are far-reaching, affecting everyone involved...
Genograms for Psychotherapy

Genograms for Psychotherapy

treatment guide
Every generation, families pass a piece of themselves to their kin. The things that are passed down can be beautiful or valuable, like stories, culture, knowledge, and belongings. Or, they can be mostly insignificant, like a cowlick and green eyes as one's grandfather. Other times, more insidious traits can be passed through generations...
Using Exercise in Mental Health Treatment

Using Exercise in Mental Health Treatment

treatment guide
The connection between exercise and mental well-being has become increasingly obvious as research on the subject grows. Unfortunately, most mental health counseling training programs don't cover the topic, and as few as 10% of psychotherapists talk to their clients about exercise. Research suggests that exercise can have a significant positive impact on depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addictions, cognitive functioning, and more...
<abbr title="Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder">OCD</abbr> Treatment Overview

OCD Treatment Overview

treatment guide
"I'm so OCD!" Obsessive-compulsive disorder may be the most popular disorder to say you have, without actually having. In common parlance, "OCD" is used to refer to someone who likes things a particular way, or who seems overly concerned with cleanliness. In the world of mental health, obsessive-compulsive disorder refers to something more serious...
CBT Psychoeducation

CBT Psychoeducation

treatment guide
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has become one of the leading approaches to psychotherapy due to its strong research support and quick treatment timeline. Once clients learn how CBT works, they typically find that it can easily be applied to their own lives. It just makes sense. For clients to use CBT effectively, they first need to have a strong understanding of the cognitive model...
Communication Techniques

Communication Techniques

treatment guide
Do you ever find yourself listening to someone, but focusing more on what you want to say next? Maybe they're telling you about their weekend, when you think: "Wow, I can't wait to tell them about what happened to me last Saturday. What a story!" Or maybe you have the opposite problem: You keep it all in...
Positive Psychology Techniques

Positive Psychology Techniques

treatment guide
In positive psychology, researchers try to understand how human beings can lead healthy, happy, and fulfilling lives.
