WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS OF DEPTH THERAPY IN MENTAL HEALTH?
Depth Therapy can be applied to most of the emotional and mentaldisturbances that are listed in the psychiatric nomenclature. This is due to the emphasis in this theory on the qualities of the therapist necessary to help the patient grow (skill, talent, capacity for intensity, etc.) rather than the diagnosis of the patient. The selection of the proper therapist for a particular individual seeking help is vital, and this is where diagnosis of the patient is important in order to match the individual with the personality of thetherapist.
As Depth Therapy has as its goal the effecting of major change in the personality and life of the individual seeking help, it is more applicable to ongoing individual psychotherapy of long duration rather than to crisis intervention work. More recently, however, Depth Therapy techniques have been applied with some success to short-term psychotherapy.
