Treatment Options

By Solon Papageorgiou, 5 February, 2023

Do you know the main treatment options in psychotherapy and the treatment of mental illness?

Psychotherapy, which is at least as effective as medicine in treating mental illness and has none of the side effects of medication, has two main tools: cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy. The first is good at providing immediate relief but doesn't work as well in the long term. The second works in the long term and its results are permanent, but it takes time.
