What exactly is Psychoeducation?
I’m glad you asked! Psychoeducation has long been used in therapy in multiple capacities. It can be used as a component of a treatment such as DBT. Often it functions as a brief therapy option for family members of people suffering with a mental illness to help with understanding and build coping skills to help support their loved one. Other times people are just seeking a brief treatment option in which they can learn some coping skills to handle a life stressor.
Good Therapy has a great article on psychoeducation here.
I offer psychoeducation for any of the reasons listed above. To find out more about psychoeducation’s role in DBT click here.
