In general, psychotherapy is a treatment involving planned and systematic verbal interactions in order to improve an individual’s physical health and – consequently -improve one’s functioning and emotional relationships with people.
When faced with a difficult situation, most people experience feelings of insecurity, fear, sadness, omnipresent threat, often involving the sense of helplessness and disorientation. Difficult situations may involve pressing problems in the family or at work. Some people can manage these feelings and find a way out of the strenuous situation. However, sometimes the sense of danger is associated with the intensification of these difficulties, there are signs – neurotic disorders, eating disorders, depression, unexplained somatic symptoms. In such states, psychotherapy is the main or at least equivalent and equally effective method of treatment.
It is believed that 600-700 thousand Poles (less than 2% of the general population) use various forms of psychotherapy (outpatient mental clinics, private practices). In comparison, approximately 20 million Americans (7% of the population) and almost 4 million French (also approx. 7% of the population) use various forms of psychotherapy. American and British studies suggest that in some circles, seeing a therapist is not only normal, but actually builds prestige. It is estimated that approximately 5-6 million Poles should undergo psychotherapy, primarily due to neuroses. Most of them, however, is not aware that the cause of their suffering is a disease which can be treated effectively. Therefore, is it not worth to overcome conventional embarassment in order to take care about oneself, and seek help?
For many years, as an employee of the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw I have conducted numerous lectures and trainings for psychiatrists and psychotherapists.
I also have a formal license issued by the Polish Balint Association allowing me to lead trainings on improving the skill of making contact with the patient within the participation in Balint group.
This offer is addressed to persons involved in broadly-understood helping – to physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers and social services employees.
