The ultimate goal of psychiatric hospitalization is to improve the dysfunctional behavior of patients so they can function again effectively in their lives and gain the “well-being” they deserve.
Psychotherapy plays a significant role to this, as it empowers the individual to become aware of the difficulties he faces and consequently to understand himself, through his thoughts and feelings.
The main goal of psychotherapy during clinical hospitalization is to help the patient gain control over his life and develop skills that will be useful to effectively confront the upcoming difficulties in his life.
Through psychoanalysis the patient has the opportunity to establish a relationship with his therapist, exploring his behavioral functions and to generally understand the way in which he contributes to the construction of his own reality.
The precious space of thought that is created in the patient is actually the one in which the individual can exist freely and honestly. This improves the image he has for himelf and the way he relates to his fellow human beings.
