Questions to Ask Mental Health Experts

If you or someone you love visits a therapist, there are questions you need to ask to avoid problems. Some therapists are more advanced than others, and after 24 of walking in and out the door of mental health offices, I can tell you that some are not qualified to diagnose anything that is not common. If you suspect you have a disorder, the best thing you can do is get accuracy on those symptoms, research your behaviors, and write them down. If you go to the therapist you will be ahead of the game, and learning more about your own behaviors, symptoms, and so forth can save you from a diagnosis you may or may not have.

Therapists as a general rule based thereon thought patterns, which include hearing and talking. If the patient shows a disturbance in their thinking patterns, the therapist will consider psychosis, since this is a symptom related to the diagnosis. Therapists will search for signs that the patient may demonstrate, including vague thoughts, fleeting ideas, peripheral thought patterns, blocking thoughts, disassociation, and so forth.

Search For Evidence

Counselors often search for evidence of schizophrenia or psychosis when there is a break, in reality, paranoia, and so forth. Paranoid and Paranoia are separate from each other, and must not be misconstrued. Professionals could make a mistake in diagnosis if they are not aware of the difference between paranoia and paranoid. Schizophrenics are often paranoid, while patients that suffer posttraumatic stress in the early stages may illustrate paranoia. When a patient answers out of content, or else the ideas delivered are unrelated to the conversation then there is a potential mental illness. For example, we are discussing society, and the patient says, “I never go there. After I get back from Canada next week we can do that.” And so on. Another area of concern is when the patient is talking in fragments, rather than delivering a complete sentence.

Usually, the patient will start with one idea and jump repeatedly to several other ideas. This pattern is known as fleeting thought processing. When the patient is illustrating thoughts that are sidetracked, the therapist may show a degree of concern. Stop here. Language is important when evaluating a patient, since some patients may not have sufficient skills in communication it could very well mean a lack of education rather than a diagnosis. If you are visiting a therapist, or have taken another individual to a therapist, and this is the only symptom, make sure that the patient is not inappropriately diagnosed and placed on medications he or she may not need. It is important to pay attention to symptoms and signs that link to mental health. Be sure to ask the therapist questions any time there is a diagnosis. Never accept the diagnosis without learning more about it, what the symptoms include, and what medicines can do to treat the disorder. When a person suddenly, loses a train of thought during a session this may be a possible diagnosis. For example, if a person is telling you about a dream related to his or her parent, and all of a sudden claims they cannot remember what they were talking about, this is an evident sign of disorder.

Most likely, this patient has suffered trauma. The symptoms are in front of you and it is important to continue treatment to find which diagnosis the patient may have. Unfortunately, most therapists are not trained to treat patients with Multiple Personality Disorders, and often these people pay a steep price for negligence and ignorance. The sign or symptom is known as disassociation or blocking memories and this is a definite sign of Multiple Personality Disorder. It is important to examine the patient however closely, since dementia and other types of disorders may cause slight disassociation. Multiple Personality Disorder is often exclusive in blocking memories to avoid pain.

Therapists are constantly studying the mind and often use the guinea pig method until they figure out what the problem is. It is always wise to ask questions when you are visiting any therapists since many make mistakes and your mental health or someone else’s mental health is important and should not be taken lightly.
