After they have actually been accredited so there’s a very popular video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists…Betterhelp Ariana Grande.. and calls them lay therapists which is merely not true and the reason she calls them late therapists i want to speak about that briefly is she states one they do not recommend medication and 2 they don’t handle court orders so let me resolve those 2 things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you likewise occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can prescribe psychiatric medications or medical doctors could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Betterhelp Ariana Grande
or a licensed expert nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of individuals who can prescribe medication the vast majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication because they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live very very couple of psychiatrists likewise do therapy most psychiatrists focus on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and then the second criticism that they do not handle court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i really tried to prevent dealing with court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would take place is i would get a phone call from somebody who would remain in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week since they had to go to court next week and they were trying to meet the requirement that they had actually received probably 5 or 6 months earlier now i comprehend that this happens i actually do but that’s not in fact treatment that’s in fact doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for many court-ordered treatment there are community companies that can supply that type of treatment in a more efficient way so i just wished to resolve those two criticisms since i do not feel they stand so prior to i show you this little technique on the website for better help in regards to being able to discover somebody in your own location that you resonate with i ‘d like to say 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very crucial and the design of a therapist makes a huge distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has a really expensive rate at a private practice and still not more than happy with the therapist right i have actually had clients who have actually concerned me after seeing someone in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my office and they ‘d say my previous therapist not did anything however talk about herself well that’s not suitable so if that happens to you either with a private practice or a community company or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so certainly the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you have to find somebody who’s a good suitable for you and in fact one of the
