Conclusions from the analysis of the causes of the reported problems are decisive factors in the choice of methods of therapeutic intervention. Basically, there are two methods of intervention – drug therapy and psychotherapy, which are joined together in situations where the combined therapies prove to be most effective. In the case of a number of mental disorders the most appropriate step is to start, resume or correct pharmacotherapy aimed at modulating neurotransmission within the structures of the brain which is a complex organ responsible for experiencing emotional states and other neurochemical processes. Due to the multiplicity of causes of psychopathological symptoms, it is often necessary to perform additional tests and to administer drugs that affect the function of further organs and systems, and to work in cooperation with doctors of separate specialties, as well as to ensure correct nutrition, selected dietary supplements, physical activity and relaxation. Man is a whole, therefore, the psychiatrist should not be seen only as a “doctor of the head.”
On the other hand, the mental state of an individual is significantly affected by emotions accompanying a real life situation experienced both now and in the past, as well as by traumatic experiences and stress. The understanding of psychological mechanisms that cause specific reactions and psychopathological symptoms in the course of situational problems, interpersonal and family conflicts, internal crises or addictions creates the possibility of deeper reflection and of changing the way of experiencing and human functioning in the specific living conditions. Psychotherapy contributes to improving the well-being and quality of relationships with other people through a therapeutic dialogue.
