I thought I understood some of these therapies....but now I am totally confused. Sorry to barge in like this but I really don't understand all the different types of therapy and how they are different.
Can someone please explain why CBT is invalidating and how CBT would handle a trauma issue, how can CBT brush certain 'living' past issues aside if they are currently a problem? I am trying to deal with something and I am so confused as to who to go to for help.
I thought that therapy was talking to a doctor about what was bothering you, and obviously you go deeper into past stuff sometimes...I feel like i have never had therapy before, i feel therapy ignorant.
how can the treatment of abuse issues be treated differently? it sounds like they are but i don't see how it is possible to be soooo different that they need different names. I have experienced the psychodynamic/analitic type of therapy and found it was not useful at all(for me)
I hope I haven't lost anyone, I have sort of confused myself now. I guess what I am asking is, is CBT a form of repression and psychoanalysis not? Is this question to all over the place to be answered? sorry if i am confusing- but it is projecting my internal state. Can anyone explain further?
