As our regular readers know, we’re big supporters of psychotherapy. When you look at the research into what works for most common mental disorders, psychotherapy has decades’ worth of data supporting its effectiveness (in many of its various forms). Yes, medications are often a valuable adjunct treatment for mental health concerns, but for the vast majority of them, people should almost always be in therapy as well (or had a course of it in the past).
So it’s with our pleasure to welcome our latest blogger to the Psych Central family, Richard Zwolinski. Richard is an author and therapist, and his blog Therapy Soup will discuss all issues of psychotherapy and the therapeutic process, demystifying it and helping to answer your questions about it.
Richard Zwolinski, LMHC, CASAC is the author of Therapy Revolution: Find Help, Get Better, and Move On Without Wasting Time or Money and is an internationally licensed psychotherapist and addiction specialist with over 25 years experience. He is also a consultant to organizations and companies in the fields of mental health and addiction. Richard brings a deep psychotherapeutic background to his blog, and I look forward to the information, opinions and insights he will share with us there in the weeks and months to come.
