Psychotherapy is a type of treatment modality that is employed in psychiatry. In this approach, medications are not used in the management of various conditions. The treatment is effected mainly through conversations with the patient. This is a process where a medical worker helps a patient to work through behavioral, emotional, personality and psychiatric disorders. The patient is assisted in resolving their emotional difficulties and also aided in developing their abilities so that they are able to function more independently. During therapy sessions, the patient is encouraged to speak without censorship and they can freely voice their intimate concerns, worries and experiences. The therapist is not allowed to impose their moral values on the patient. However, using information from the patient, they can deduce reasons and offer suggestions about a patient?s particular behavior. It helps patients get insight concerning their behavior and gives opportunity for any pent up emotions to be released. Though effective, one of the major downsides of psychotherapy is that treatment can stretch for long periods of time.
