You may need medication, physical therapy, surgery, and so on. Psychotherapy can be a vital part of holistic treatment for all patients with medical conditions.
Functional somatic disorders are common and costly, thereby driving the need for the development of effective brief treatment options. many studies showed that psychotherapy is a valid treatment option for diverse functional somatic disorders conditions resulting in somatic symptom reductions that persist over time. So psychotherapy should be included in functional somatic disorders treatment guidelines.
"The need for innovations in mental health to improve access and quality of care is urgent," said lead author Dr. Paul Kurdyak, Director of Health Outcomes and Performance Evaluation in the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research at CAMH and lead of the Mental Health and Addictions Research Program at ICES. "But increasing the number of specialists who provide psychotherapy alone will not solve the existing problem of poor access to psychotherapy in a publicly-funded system."
Psychotherapy is an evidence-based treatment for conditions like depression and anxiety, two of the most common psychiatric disorders. Treatment guidelines suggest that structured, evidence-based therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) should be a front-line treatment option for patients with mild to moderate depression or anxiety.
"Evidence-based psychotherapy should be available to all patients suffering from the most prevalent mental disorders," said Dr. Kurdyak.
