Does Counseling Really Work

A recent news story entitled "Era Of PillsMeridian Health ProtocolMeans Less Talk Therapy" highlights the current trend over the decrease in psychotherapy offered, during psychiatric visits. Although it may be true that many insurance companies offer psychiatrists reimbursement incentives to offer more "medication management" than "talk therapy," psychotherapy remains an integral part of mental health treatment.

Within private practice, psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in prescribing psychotropic medication. Psychologists are licensed, non-physician specialists who offer counseling or psychotherapy services. Most insurance reimburses for full 45-50 minute sessions with psychologists. It is not uncommon for many patients to be simultaneously treated by both a psychiatrist and psychologist.

Psychologists are licensed health care professionals who offer assessment and support counseling, as a means of helping patients help themselves to make positive change. Behavioral healthcare describes the goal of this therapeutic relationship. Psychotherapeutic tools, like cognitive behavioral therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and hypnotherapy can facilitate this process. Mental health and well-being is fundamental to a person's overall health. Few people are untouched by mental health issues, either directly or indirectly. Mental illness can range from depression and clinical anxiety to schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease. Talking with an objective other, like a psychologist, can offer a unique perspective conducive to positive mental health care.
