Question by Right wings smell like garbage: Why does counseling seem to work better for psychological disturbances?
As compared to the medical treatment such as brain surgery, Shock Therapy and to some extent meds. All meds seem to do is correct a problem from some chemical imbalance.
It seems like from results, the more “Philosophical” approaches with talk therapy, cognitive reconstruction, psychoanalysis, and psychotherapy seem to help people better with most mental disturbances.
Answer by Lucas
Maybe because the problem is psychological, so psychological approach (counseling) is more effective. And vice versa, if the problem is biological, then medical treatment is appropriate. The bottom line, it depends on what cause the problem, not the symptoms.
