TREATMENTS AND PROCEDURES

Psychotherapy or Counselling

This is the widely popular treatment commonly used by psychiatrists in treating mental disorder. It is also known as talk therapy or counselling therapy. In this procedure, psychiatrists encourage patients to about their problems and issues that are bothering them.

Most of the time it is done one-on-one. Sometimes it can be done in a group setting or with your family members like spouse or parents. It is useful for those patients who are going through a rough phase in their life like a breakup, divorce or grief, etc.

Prescription Medicine

Prescription medicine is the second most used treatment by psychiatrists for treating a wide range of medical conditions. It involves prescribing medicines for mental disorders to make changes to brain chemicals. Which helps in altering patients’ emotions and patterns.

Though they can’t independently treat or cure the medical condition, they can help make other treatments progress smoothly. Based on the patient’s medical condition and severity of the mental disease your psychiatrists will recommend the medicine type and share its side effects.

ECT or Other Brain Stimulation Therapy

In this procedure, the psychiatrist sends electric currents into the brain. The purpose behind this stimulation is to cause changes in the brain that can improve and even reverse troubling symptoms. This type of treatment is used only when other treatments haven’t worked.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a new and nontraditional type of psychotherapy. In recent years, this type of treatment has been increasing in popularity.
