Psychotherapy is a treatment modality used in psychiatry. In this approach, medications are not used to treat various conditions. The treatment is done primarily through discussions with the patient. This is a process in which a medical worker helps a patient work through behavioral, emotional, personality, and psychiatric disorders. The patient is helped to resolve their emotional difficulties and is also helped to develop their skills so that they can function more independently. During therapy sessions, the patient is encouraged to speak out and can freely express concerns, worries and intimate experiences. The therapist is not allowed to impose his or her moral values on the patient. However, using the patient's information, the therapist can infer reasons and offer suggestions about the patient's particular behavior. It helps patients understand their behavior and gives the opportunity for any repressed emotions to be released. Although effective, one of the major drawbacks of psychotherapy is that the treatment can be prolonged over long periods of time.
