Individual Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy approaches are used to reduce somatic and psychological symptoms, improve coping and functioning, improve communication and problem solving, and reduce stress load. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is focused on achieving these goals by modifying unhelpful cognitions, assumptions, beliefs, and behaviors. Techniques might include developing a biopsychosocial view of symp toms; keeping a diary of symptoms and associated events, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors (to identify triggers and outcomes that could be targeted for intervention); learning relaxation and distraction techniques; questioning cognitions, assumptions, and beliefs that might be unhelpful or unrealistic and trying new ones; and gradually facing activities that previously have been avoided.
