Individual
Therapy

This type of treatment is used if an individual or family is in crisis or has special needs.  This treatment is usually recommended for a patient with personality disorders, relationship dysfunction, or adjustment difficulties due to life stressors.  Individual therapy may involve using behavioral, cognitive, supportive or dynamic therapies, and the length of treatment may differ depending on the treatment type recommended and the patient’s ability to develop insight and/or make behavioral changes.

Couples
Therapy

This type of treatment can be used along with individual therapy, if there are difficulties in a primary relationship.  It can also be used if the identified patient’s psychiatric disorder is adversely affecting the relationship.

Family
Therapy

This type of treatment may also be used in conjunction with individual treatment or may be the only treatment recommended.  Family therapy is used when the patient is experiencing difficulties functioning within the family, or when family members need assistance or training in learning to live with a patient who has a psychiatric disorder.

Group
Therapy

This type of treatment is used if an individual is not in crisis.  The format of this treatment is in a group or usually 6-8 individuals with other patients experiencing similar concerns or difficulties.  Group treatment is often used to teach patients new skills or to provide support and/or feedback from peers.  Groups may be open ended or time-limited depending on the nature of the group.  The content of the group sessions may be on a predetermined schedule or on a participant-directed basis.
