certified in connecticut where i live and then tell you what else is needed to be a better health therapist so to become certified you require a graduate degree in one of a handful of locations so you might have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in scientific social work or marriage and family therapy or expert therapy and then as soon as you have your academic degree you need 3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being supervised by a professional who holds the license you’re looking for and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this person in which you discuss how you are providing treatment to your customers so typically attaining this many clinical hours and this much supervision probably averages around three or four years of experience to get the medical hours to even then sit for the written exam and then you sit for the composed test and after that if you pass you get certified so that’s what’s required to be licensed as a psychotherapist in connecticut and then if you wish to work for better help you require a minimum of three years of experience after you’ve been accredited so you are definitely not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with a graduate degree a solid variety of clinical hours and a minimum of three years of experience after they’ve been licensed so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is simply not real and the factor she calls them late counselors i wish to discuss that briefly is she states one they do not prescribe medication and two they don’t deal with court orders so let me address those 2 things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not prescribe medication unless you also occur to be an md or an lprn the only individuals in the united states who can prescribe psychiatric medications or medical doctors could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Betterhelp Facebook Ads
or a certified professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 kinds of people who can recommend medication the large majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication because they do not hold those other degrees and where i live really really couple of psychiatrists likewise do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and after that the second criticism that they do not handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i really tried to avoid handling court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would happen is i would get a phone call from someone who would remain in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week due to the fact that they had to go to court next week and they were attempting to fulfill the requirement that they had gotten most likely 5 or 6 months back now i understand that this occurs i really do however that’s not really therapy that’s actually doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for a lot of court-ordered therapy there are community agencies that can provide that kind of treatment in a more efficient manner so i simply wanted to attend to those 2 criticisms due to the fact that i do not feel they stand so before i show you this little technique on the site for better help in terms of having the ability to find somebody in your own area that you resonate with i want to state 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very crucial and the style of a therapist makes a big distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you could go to somebody who has a very pricey rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i’ve had clients who’ve concerned me after seeing somebody in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they come into my office and they ‘d say my previous therapist not did anything however talk about herself well that’s not proper so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a community agency or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something outright you can report it to the state licensing board so certainly the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you need to find somebody who’s an excellent suitable for you and actually among the
