Research has shown the positive effects of music therapy on various mental health conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, and trauma. Music can be used to help you process trauma, emotions, and grief. However, music can also serve as a calming or regulating agent for anxiety.
5. Exposure Therapy
Exposure therapy can be used in behaviour therapy to treat anxiety disorders. Exposure therapy involves the exposure of the target patient to the anxiety source, or its context, but without the intention to create any danger. The goal is to help them overcome distress or anxiety.
6. Interpersonal Therapy
IPT, also known as interpersonal therapy, is a targeted, short-term treatment of depression. Studies show that IPT, which addresses interpersonal problems, may be just as effective as short-term antidepressant treatment for mild and moderate cases of clinical depression.
