Psychosis is characterized as an abnormal psychological state involving disturbances in fundamental aspects of brain functioning including perception, processing, cognition, and emotion. The condition itself is most commonly used to describe an incident that causes an individual to disconnect from reality in some way. Those experiencing symptoms of psychosis typically find it useful to seek treatment from a mental health expert as a therapist is able to help clients implement healthy coping strategies, recognize their condition, and maintain a long term treatment plan. Therapy for psychosis frequently works best when combined with medication in order to stabilize some of the more severe symptoms.
Psychosis often takes a heavy toll on one's self-image and social life, which is why it's important to hire a therapist who is able to help him or her navigate through the aftermath of a psychotic episode, repair strained or damaged relationships, and develop healthy coping skills for future episodes. Families who participate in therapy sessions along with the client help to reduce future relapses. These family interventions also improve familial relations as the members are encouraged to become a part of the clients support system as a type of therapeutic agent, if you will. Furthermore, family members who are struggling with the client also have the opportunity to visit with the therapist in individual sessions as well.
