For quite some time now, we have discussed how interactive therapy can yield superior outcomes. Patients are more engaged; therapy programs are shortened yet results are superior. Below is new information:
A Real World example:
Not long ago I was leaving my office for a two week vacation when I received a call from a distraught women indicating she was depressed, anxious and in need of help. She said that she had made several calls to psychologists but no one was answering their phones or returning her calls. We talked for a time and I told her I was leaving but could give her a scheduled session when I returned in two weeks. I could tell she was disappointed and ultimately relived when I educated her about the SoundMindz web site. I explained the site provided disorder questionnaires, articles on the subjects of depression and anxiety and most importantly I informed her of our free Anti-Anxiety and Anti-Depression apps.
I encouraged her to record her symptoms and daily moods in the progress tracker and if she agreed I would check her comments periodically while I was away and comment on her entries.
I checked the first week and I received a comment in Laura’s Tracker, “Thank you so much for telling me about the Anti-Anxiety app, I not only find it incredibly useful but I have recorded my daily symptoms and moods in the progress tracker and I believe it is giving me perspective on my distress”
If you google the word happiness you well be exposed to many articles, books and blogs telling you how to attain this all-elusive state. Why the sudden overflow of information regarding happiness?
I believe the overriding interest is directly related to the fact that our culture is suffering a collapse of mental resiliency. 40 million Americans suffer from anxiety, eighteen percent of the population. Globally 350 million people suffer from depression, one in ten Americans. Children experience depression ten times the incidence of generations ago; depression rates are ten times higher than they were in 1960. The average age of a depressive episode today is 14.5 years; fifty years ago it was close to 30 years of age.
Half of Americans say they lie awake at night due to stress, while three quarters of Americans experience stress symptoms, either physical, psychological or both.
According to the World Health Organization stress related business costs for Americans rose to 300 billion dollars last year, an astounding figure, with absenteeism being a chief culprit. A Gallup poll in the summer of 2013 indicated that 70% of Americans hate their jobs, feel disengaged and blame their bosses for their attitude.
