How to secure yourself from incompetent people, from their inept or even dangerous introduction into the most intimate spheres of your life?
How to make the right choice in such conditions to keep own energy, time and money, to strengthen health and to become happier?
Pay attention to the following:
1. Psychoterapist's certificate
In Russia the psychotherapy is a medical specialty which demands professional retraining (about 4 months) after the graduation from medical institute (6 years) and internships on psychiatry (2 years). It lasts at least 12 years, including studying in other directions of medicine, obligatory work in mental hospital and only after that professional retraining on psychotherapy. Ideally after obtaining the certificate training has to go deeper within the chosen direction and last for the rest of the life.
2. The psychologist diploma of the university with a high rating
If you have symptoms of a disease which you want to get rid of, it is better to trust the expert with deep knowledge in psychiatry (psychotherapists or clinical psychologists).
3. Evidence based treatment
For the majority of cases CBT, SFT, DBT, MBSR, which is the most examined, reliable and popular in today's world, showed it's efficiency.
4. Continuous training and scientific activity
Continuous training, publications in scientific magazines, participation in the international conferences, an academic degree, teaching activity are indirect signs of the fact that the specialist updates his knowledge and is capable to process information quickly and effectively
5. Implementation of the international standards of education in psychotherapy
In Russia there are no united standards on quality control and practice of training neither for psychotherapists, nor for psychologists yet. That's why it is better to rely on the European and American standards.
In each modality there are standards on a number of training hours, personal therapy, work with clients and supervizion.
The other important, but not obligatory criterion is personal therapy (the psychotherapist himself gets the therapy as a client). Usually about 250-300 hours of personal therapy are required.
If you have a choice, it is better to visit those specialist who have already helped your acquaintances and which are recommended by people, competent in medicine/psychotherapy/psychology.
7. Love to the work
The last, but not the least! The love to work gives serious advantage to the specialist in any area because it is a natural source of motivation for development, training and readiness for life long work. The person filled with love to own work is less tired, hardly ever burns out, feels better, work and comes home in a better mood .
