Improving Mental Health

Doctors who specialize in psychiatry and clinical psychology specialist psychologists, psychotherapists are credited, if they show documented their practice, activity and clinical supervision. 2 .- A minimum of three years part-time in the period of post-graduate university dedicated to theoretical training, technical and clinical psychotherapy with a minimum of 600 hours. 3 .- A minimum of two years of practice professional psychotherapists, properly supervised. It should include also, at least the treatment of 2 cases with a minimum of 300 treatment sessions and 100 sessions of supervision of these treatments. This monitoring of professional practice, be done with expert psychotherapists accredited by the respective associations of psychotherapists.

4 .- A minimum of six months of practical activities in public or private environments of Mental Health, in which the psychotherapist in training, may have direct experience of clinical psychopathology, allowing you to make direct contact with various forms of manifestation of disorders mental, and the various professionals involved in Mental Health. With these filters is much more difficult for someone to “brew” to the harm that means for potential patients. As we see, and summarized to a good education must be more than three years and must necessarily include personal psychotherapy with a clinical supervision of own cases. From a practical standpoint, when someone asks me for example, that if I know a therapist in Albacete. I say no, but see the guide, FEAP and find someone in that city, because anyone who is registered here, at least claims to have properly trained and is no upstart.

Honestly I think the specialty of psychiatry is the most difficult of medicine. I say this because we know that psychiatrists are crazy enough fame and when you ask me, I usually reply that that statement is probably true. I think it may be true for two main reasons: first because we are people and not the same to operate a walk, say, to deal with a neurotic person, whose problems can be very similar to mine, being in such cases very difficult to make therapeutic distance and avoid “contagion.” The second reason is that many professionals, by virtue of their specialty, they begin to treat patients directly, ignoring “That is madness itself.” In other words, it is absolutely essential, as I have written above, be well analyzed. There have been “cook before friar” or in our case, “have been before patient therapist.” I was born in Barcelona (Spain). I’m a psychiatrist, psychologist and psychotherapist. I have over 30 years dedicated to psychotherapy, both in appearance and clinical teaching. I have given numerous training courses in many very prestigious institutions. I’m currently very focused on integrated brief psychotherapy, that does not know which therapy is planned that embraces the individual as a whole (physical, psychological and social). It is a therapy “face to face” where the teacher is very important factor because of what it is that the patient is that you learn to solve their conflicts. The therapist lends his “observing ego” and the patient learns to observe from the outside to be facing the various conflicts that have led to consultation. Therapy is a very creative and that led to (work with the photographic history of the patients) that along with writing, sports and reading are my favorite hobbies.
