Types of Depression Treatment Therapy

There are many types of therapy available. Three of the more common methods used in depression treatment include Cognitive behavioral therapy, Interpersonal therapy, and Psychodynamic therapy. Often, a blended approach is used.

Some types of therapy teach you practical techniques on how to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills in combating depression. Therapy can also help you work through the root of your depression, helping you understand why you feel a certain way, what your triggers are for depression, and what you can do to stay healthy.

Cognitive Therapy for Depression Treatment

 Almost everyone has dark thoughts when his or her mood is bad. With depression, though, the thoughts can be extremely negative. They can also take over and distort your view of reality. Cognitive therapy can be an effective way to defuse those thoughts. When used for depression, cognitive therapy provides a mental tool kit that can be used to challenge negative thoughts. Over the long term, cognitive therapy for depression can change the way a depressed person sees the world.

Studies have shown that cognitive therapy works at least as well as antidepressants in helping people with mild to moderate depression. Treatment with medication and/or psychotherapy can shorten depression's course and can help reduce symptoms such as fatigue and poor self-esteem that accompany depression.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy or Talk Therapy

Interpersonal Psychotherapy or talk therapy is a structured therapy for people with moderate to severe depression. The psychological symptoms, such as depressed mood, can be understood as a response to current difficulties in our everyday interactions with others. In turn, the depressed mood can also affect the quality of these interactions. When a person is able to interact more effectively with others, their psychological symptoms often improve. The therapy can typically focus on the following relationship areas:

  • Conflict with another person
  • Life changes that affect how you feel about yourself and others
  • Grief and loss
  • Difficulty in starting or keeping relationships going

Psychodynamic psychotherapy

The main aim of this therapy is to understand a person’s internal conflicts and how they may impact their feelings, behavior, and relationships. These conflicts are believed to stem from childhood experiences, and people are often unaware of them. This therapy aims to uncover and explain these internal conflicts and reduce their impact on everyday life In this Therapy, the psychologist recognize these problematic past events and move on from them so the patient can live more in the present.

If there is no underlying medical cause for your symptoms of depression, then finding a mental health specialist is the next best step for treatment. Although there are many types of mental health professionals, one of the most important things to consider when choosing a therapist is your connection with this person. The right therapist will be a caring and supportive partner in your depression treatment and recovery.
