What types of therapy treatment can help reduce neurotic behavior?
Neurosis can be best conceptualized by a mental health professional as symptoms of depression and/or anxiety, and therefore responds very well to the many evidence-based practices developed for depression and anxiety. These include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness, acceptance, and commitment therapy (ACT), and many others. Therapists are trained to help individuals recognize negative thinking patterns and behaviors, identify opportunities for change, increase their ability to recognize and manage their emotional experiences and improve interactions with others. This can all be considered standard psychological care, which the concept of neurosis responds very well to. Online therapy can be a very effective modality for the treatment of neurosis and neuroticism. In some cases, a psychiatric medication evaluation may also be quite helpful in addressing these symptoms.
