Psychoeducation

Psychoeducation involves a process of education surrounding an illness.  Being diagnosed with an illness can be a confusing and difficult experience.  Psychoeducation can include teaching about the symptoms and treatment options available.  I can also include teaching about and promoting the sharing of emotional experiences with others.  This can include information about the illness.  Psychoeducation can be an important part of relapse prevention and the process can include how to recognize and manage crisis situations, as well as support with treatment compliance.I offer a warm and safe place to engage in psychoeducation. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and presentations vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques, including psychoeducation to create a multi-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.

It is very important to not self-diagnosis.  With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but the attention of a mental health professional may add clarity to your experience. Talk therapy is very effective at working with a variety of issues.

Because of the wide variety of reactions, and the complexities and subtleties of professional diagnosis and treatment, feel free to call me to discuss further. I am experienced and trained in a variety of treatment and assessment methods, including psychoeducation.  Contact a licensed mental health professional or your family doctor if you have concerns.
