Understanding Treatment Approaches

Studies have shown that often the key to effective therapy is more about the quality of the relationship between the treatment provider and the client than it is about the type of therapy. However, some approaches do appear to be better suited for particular problems. This sheet is not an exhaustive list but it outlines the main, modern approaches to non- medical treatment, what they involve and what the evidence suggests.

If any of these approaches interest you, we recommend that you do some more reading at your local library or on the internet. Many of the treatment providers listed in the Community Resources Directory offer these forms of treatment. When looking for a non- medical treatment for mental disorder it is important to ask questions, check credentials and to take an active role in your relationship with your treatment provider.
