What Is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a mental health practice involving talking with a professional like a psychologist or psychiatrist. It is otherwise referred to as "talk therapy" and helps the patient work through their emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and mental health issues.

Types of Issues Psychotherapy Can Help With

Psychotherapy treatment has broad applications across mental health issues. It can help with:

  • Anxiety disorders like phobias, PTSD, panic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and anxiety
  • Addictions to controlled substances, food, gambling, etc.
  • Personality disorders
  • Mood disorders like depression or bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia
  • Schizophrenia

Difference Between Outpatient and Inpatient Psychotherapy Treatment

Outpatient psychotherapy differs from inpatient in that individuals are not required to stay overnight in a hospital or treatment center. They can attend sessions with their therapist, typically once a week, but the frequency can vary based on individual needs and treatment plans.

Inpatient psychotherapy is considered more intensive because the patient is required to live at a mental health facility and receive around-the-clock care. It is reserved for people experiencing severe distress from their mental health issues.

Outpatient psychotherapy involves regularly scheduled meetings. At Embark Recovery, these sessions take place at the facility, but the patient is not required to live here.

Another major difference is the duration of treatment. Inpatient psychotherapy treatment is often short-term and used to treat immediate mental health crises. Outpatient treatment is more drawn out over a longer period of time and provides ongoing support.

Types of Outpatient Psychotherapy Treatments

Individual Therapy Sessions

This is where a patient has a one-on-one session with a psychotherapy professional. It involves talking you through your traumas and triggers in hopes of developing ways to counteract these negative thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

Group Therapy Sessions

Sometimes it is beneficial to work through mental health issues as a group. These sessions involve multiple patients experiencing the same mental health problems. Group therapy sessions support interpersonal development and improve communication with respect to mental health issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of psychotherapy that is designed to help individuals understand and change thought patterns that lead to harmful actions or feelings. It follows the school of thought that all our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected. By exploring these connections, patients can identify negative thought patterns or behaviors and begin to restructure them in pursuit of positive change. This change will alleviate mental health symptoms by healing false beliefs.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT treatment is another form of cognitive psychotherapy dealing with mindfulness, emotional regulation, and interpersonal connection management. It was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder but has since evolved to apply to a range of mental health conditions. Through this treatment, patients learn to decrease both interpersonal and intrapersonal conflicts that affect relationships. The primary perspectives focused on through Dialectical Behavior Therapy are change and acceptance and how patients can navigate them to support positive change.

Benefits of Outpatient Psychotherapy

There are multiple benefits associated with outpatient psychotherapy care, especially when compared to inpatient treatment.

More Affordable

Outpatient treatments are generally less expensive than inpatient care because there is no requirement to live at the facility. Also, the costs are broken up over time since the care is designed to be long-term.


With outpatient care, patients are better able to plan their treatments around their schedule. This allows them to continue with their daily routines, jobs, and hobbies.

Maintain Relationships

Inpatient care can be isolating since the patient is required to remain within the facility for the duration of their treatment. With outpatient psychotherapy treatment, patients can continue seeing their family and friends. This maintains the support system that lends itself to recovery.
