Psychotherapy should not be eliminated for mental patients; both medication and therapy should be used for helping the patient. The medicine should help control the patient 's problem, but not their attitude, however psychotherapy helps the problem being dealt with and their attitude. Psychotherapy also helps the patients express themselves; meanwhile the medicine prescribed to these patients will make them quiet, sleepy and sometimes even give them a depression. Long since World War 1 much research has been done into whether mental patients should have medicine or psychotherapy. Most researchers think medicine can take over the job of therapy.
A client with a current crisis is looking for relief and validation without judgements. It is crucial for a therapist to present a safe, peaceful and nonjudgmental environment to gain the trust of the client. When working with a crisis client, the therapist may have more of a challenge to obtain eye contact whereas a client that is not in crisis may feel ashamed. There is always a level of uncertainty with both the therapist and client in the first few initial meetings. The client may be wondering if they will be judged or accepted.
In the study done by Drossel, Fisher, & Mercer (2011), a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills training manual (DBT Skills) was used for caregivers of patients with dementia, mainly in community clinical settings. This was designed because of the lack of effective therapy options currently in healthcare for elderly abuse. Researchers studied the DBT Skills training manual to examine if its effect would not only help at-risk caregivers to decrease the harm towards elderly patients with dementia, but also improve quality of life for the patients. There were 24 caregivers (19 women and five men) and most were family members. The DBT Skills training entailed one introductory meeting and eight weekly sessions.
Application of information based on the real observation of the patient with the combination of subjective and objective data that lead to conclusion making is regarded as clinical judgement. Its developed through practicing, experience, knowledge and continuous critical analysis. (Kienle & Kiene, 2011). It continuously expand to all medical fields: diagnosis, therapy, communication, and decision making. Clinical judgement is of complex because nurses are needed to have prior training in that he/she can have a better understanding of the subject.
Most of the time, psychiatric clinical research constitutes patients who are quite vulnerable and helpless due to their incapability to give consent. These patients are ethically and morally acceptable if there are no other ways of addressing the clinical questions made available to them. Conflict of interest is quite prevalent among psychiatric clinical trials, where there is a greater possibility of reporting a drug to be better than a placebo. In a study by Frances (2007), where 397 clinical trials were taken a closer look at, 239 trials had received funding from the pharmaceutical company that had manufactured the drug being studied, or other interested parties. Another 187 studies had included one or more authors with financial conflict of interest (Frances, 2007).
So if you are depressed, for instance, a psychiatrist is best placed to help you think about whether a biological treatment like antidepressant drugs may help. And a clinical psychologist is best placed to help you think about whether a psychological therapy like cognitive behavioural therapy may help to manage the underlying cause of depression and to make you able to deal with it effectively. Clinical psychologists will usually be able to help you see a psychiatrist if that would be helpful for your problem, and psychiatrists will usually be able to help you see a clinical psychologist if they would be more able to help you with your
My therapeutic recreation courses, experience hours, and internship all have molded my approach to therapy and treatment of individuals with disabilities or other challenges. I am still learning and facing challenges within this profession, as I will continue to do. The biggest challenge for me in my internship would be learning how to work with a population that I have never worked with, which is geriatric psychiatry.

The goal in geriatric is often to maintain a baseline or standard of behavior and cognition instead of making improvements.
To illustrate these examples, some clients may suffer from depression, bipolar disorders, or anxiety. If a client suffers from depression, then their personalized care would be therapeutic therapy. In addition, if a client suffers from bipolar disorders or anxiety the best way to treat those individuals may be to provide strong social support environment that regulate their moods. This can be done through recreational activities such as a baseball game or a walk with the clients. “Licensed professionals can address their clients’ specific physical, occupational, psychological and cognitive deficits to develop an individual plan to formulate a plan or services.
caretakers, teacher, psychologists etc.). History taking is important in both interventions in order the therapist to formulate hypotheses and then design the treatment plan. The professional status of the therapist should be in respect of the patient’s case and the therapist should be transparent following the ethical code in terms of maintaining confidentiality. In addition, in both interventions the therapist should have in mind the building of rapport with the patient in order to achieve engagement and compliance with the treatment plan.
