Individuals and their families who are involved, for example, with stressful situations, including natural disasters and jobs, and who work in emergency services, the military, justice or the health fields can benefit from psychosocial therapeutic (“therapies”). Pre-marital counselling and preparation are also offered. Such services are not always readily available, and may only be accessible in the form of short-term interventions. During therapy service recipients (“recipients”) often communicate with trained and caring therapists. These professionals could help them to identify and address stressors that could be triggering their dis-eases.
Individuals, families and groups may have opportunities through therapies to gain insight and outsight into their problematic behaviours, feelings, and cognitions that could contribute to their problems. They can learn how to change in meaningful and productive ways. Recipients may experience sad and even traumatic events such as illnesses, deaths and disabilities, job losses and relationship breakdowns. For recipients to move on from these kinds of circumstances it can be important to understand and address factors that they can change in their lives to cope with their losses and misfortunes. Recipients may then be able to develop a sense of self- efficacy, to see the beauty and pleasure in the world around them. Individuals, couples and families through therapies can strengthen their coping and problem-solving strategies.
