The Therapeutic Relationship


I’m going to talk a bit about medications and therapy, or as I like to call them: House and Home.

Medications oftentimes provide the foundation and framework for recovery, much like cement and studs form the foundation and framework of a house. Nowadays, there are many medications available to treat schizophrenia. Finding the right one or combination of meds might take time…probably months, maybe even years. Keep fighting to find the right combo.

So, medications make the house, but good talk therapy makes the house a home. Finding a good talk therapist can be difficult. Most are interested in the latest “evidence-based” therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). These therapies have some value in my opinion but not a lot. The Number One characteristic of good talk therapists? Their ability to foster a strong therapeutic relationship with you and/or your loved one.
