The NIMH created a video to demonstrate how our brain works. With the combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and often times medication, many disorders can be effectively treated. I strongly support each client knowing as much about their brain is possible. It is imperative that with any mental health treatment that you are taught the techniques by the therapist to use outside of psychotherapy. Treatment should not last very long. The more that you can become your own therapist; the better you can manage events in your life using the skills you learned in therapy.
