Psychotherapy During Times of Economic Hardship

Psychotherapy During Times of Economic Hardship

Many practitioners focus on the individual or family who is struggling with some kind of adjustment or communication problem. But there is an added dimension in the type and intensity of stress average families are facing nowadays due to our current economic crisis. Financial strain can impact our patients during any economic climate but with the current hardships, psychotherapists are being asked to assist more people with the psychological fall-out.

The goal of this module is to help you to understand and treat clients who are experiencing stress or depression from or increased by economic crisis. We will first talk about the facts related to the economic crisis. Then, we'll try to understand the fall-out from these difficult times. Finally, we will look at what we can do to assist people to feel better and function optimally.
