    Cool Re: Does Therapy Really Help People?

    I went through a 6 month program one time that taught cognitive behavioral therapy. It taught me coping skills that may have saved my life the 2nd time I became manic and I kept having thoughts about slamming my head against concrete for no reason other than I had to much sugar and caffiene it was traumatic. But the coping skills are meditation, breathing, and grounding. Heres an article about it but its not from the program I took.

    Cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ) is a psycho-social intervention [1] [2] that aims to improve mental health . [3] CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions (e.g. thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes) and behaviors, improving emotional regulation , [2] [4] and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. Originally, it was designed to treat depression , but its use has been expanded to include treatment of a number of mental health conditions, including anxiety.

    Re: Does Therapy Really Help People?

    Just curious but is this discussion limited to Mental Health therapy? Because if it is, I'd like to rename the title. If not, I have some things to add about other forms of therapies.

    Cool. Because as some of you may know, I am a Massage Therapist (among a few other titles, but those are irrelevant to this conversation) and I see both sides of the spectrum. Some of my patients (I work in a clinic, so they are patients, not clients) are really into massage therapy as a healing tool to get better, while others simply see it as a pampering experience. There's nothing inherently wrong with seeing it as the latter, but when you incorporate MT into a healing regiment, it can be absolutely wonderful and make you feel so much better overall.

    There's many aspects to MT that can be beneficial to most people. I say most, because there are certain medical conditions that would prevent those afflicted from benefiting and there are people who simply do not like to be touched and it would probably cause more issues than alleviate existing problems.

    Reduced stress and improved blood circulation are on the top of the benefits list. Depending on the modality of the massage - and there are MANY - additional benefits are improved range of motion, reduced aches and pains due to knots. trigger points, injuries, posture, lack of activity, and last but not least improved mental health.

    I'm not going to get all salesey about it and my two cents on whether therapy helps people are based objectively on my observations. Yes. Therapy absolute can help. That said, a lot of it does depend on the person receiving the therapy though. If they don't want it and feel forced into it... it probably won't be as useful.
