Getting the Best Mental Health Therapy Experience
The website Scarleteen.com (one of the best sources out there for sexuality education aimed at teens) has a good feature by Sam Wall called “Getting the Most out of Therapy”. Wall covers the process in full, from finding a therapist to beginning your therapy up to switching therapists if needed. It’s a great overview that’s sorely needed.
Another resource worth looking at is the In Therapy blog at Psychology Today. Psychologist and professor, who writes the blog, goes behind the scenes of the therapeutic process in an attempt to demystify it for clients.
Getting help isn’t easy, even after you’ve cleared the logistical hurdles of finding a provider and figuring out how to pay for it. The resources above may help by giving a bit of a roadmap on what to expect.
