So one of my psychology assignments is to interview someone who has been treated for a psychological disorder or, I guess, someone who knows someone who has. I personally don't know anyone so I'm asking you guys here for some help. I know this can be a touchy subject thing but obviously i'm reporting it anonymously. Here are the questions...you can PM me responses instead of posting here:
a. How would you describe your symptoms before you got treatment?
b. What kind of treatment did you receive: psychotherapy? drug therapy? both?
If you received psychotherapy, what was that like? What kinds of
techniques did your therapist use?
(See if you can figure out what
perspective their therapist had)
d. If you received drug therapy, what kinds of medication did you take? How often? Did/do you notice any side effects?
e. Was the therapy helpful? How is your life different now, if at all?
f. What advice would you have for someone who struggles with the same symptoms?
I can't really expect anyone to help me here, but if anyone can it would be greatly appreciated
