Outpatient Psychotherapy in Scottsdale

Physical health is essential, but so is mental health.

Unfortunately, many people focus solely on their physical well-being. Outpatient psychotherapy is treatment in an outpatient setting that focuses on treating mental health. Even if a person doesn’t have a diagnosed mental health condition, psychotherapy, also known as “talk therapy,” can be highly beneficial. Healing Foundations Center is an outpatient psychotherapy provider in Scottsdale, AZ.

What is Outpatient Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a term that describes several treatments for mental health conditions that include talking with a mental health professional, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, or therapist.

Psychotherapy teaches the patient about their condition and moods, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to help them cope with challenging situations, stress, and the symptoms of a mental health condition.

Unlike inpatient treatment, outpatient psychotherapy allows patients to receive treatment in an outpatient setting, such as an office or clinical setting, and return home. Outpatient psychotherapy has a lot of flexibility, and mental health professionals can tailor it to individual needs and the nature and severity of the patient’s condition.

Benefits of Outpatient Psychotherapy Treatment

Outpatient is a good choice for patients with a strong support system and an ability to maintain independence in their lives. For these people, outpatient psychotherapy provides several benefits:

  • Enables patients to maintain a connection to support systems of family and friends
  • Allows patients to manage day-to-day responsibilities
  • Empowers patients to practice and use new coping skills in their daily lives
  • Assists patients in the transition from inpatient treatment into their everyday life
  • Gives patients the flexibility to manage treatment on their own schedule

Psychotherapy can be very effective in an outpatient setting. People who benefit most from outpatient psychotherapy have a clear recovery plan and a commitment to learning, a trusting relationship with the therapist, positive relationships with others, good social skills, and a willingness to change.

Depending on the severity of these conditions, outpatient psychotherapy may offer more effective intermediate treatment than conventional therapy with more flexibility than inpatient therapy.

Outpatient Psychotherapy Treatment Methods

Outpatient psychotherapy treatment methods can vary widely according to the facility and conditions treated, but they typically include group or individualized therapy sessions, or both. They may also include family or couple’s therapy.

Some common types of psychotherapy include:

The methods may be highly individualized and developed specifically for the patient’s mental health conditions and symptoms.

Intensive Outpatient Psychotherapy

Intensive outpatient programs are a type of structured outpatient treatment and an excellent option for individuals who face crises or struggle to cope with the symptoms and effects of their mental health conditions. These programs provide in-depth treatment regularly but allow individuals to return to their homes each day and manage their other responsibilities.

Partial hospitalization is another type of structured outpatient treatment, and intensive outpatient treatment can help patients who completed a partial-hospitalization program for mental health treatment.

At Healing Foundations Center, our intensive outpatient program uses small groups for therapy sessions that ensure each person receives individual attention and therapy experience in a group. We maintain a small group size to provide the best possible outcome for each person.
