1 The Power of Psychotherapy Psychotherapy can be used to treat unexplained dizziness. This dizziness cannot be medically explained or related to any psychiatric disorder (Schmid, Henningsen, Dieterich, Sattel, & Lahmann, 2011).. An overview of many research studies has shown that unexplained dizziness can be treated to some degree with CBT (Schmid, Henningsen, Dieterich, Sattel, & Lahmann, 2011).. Cesar Monzon

2 Unexplained Dizziness and CBT Cognitive behavioral therapy aimed at triggers, thoughts, arousal, behavior and exposure during dizziness as well as relaxation techniques has been shown to lessen the effects of this dizziness in these individuals with medically/psychiatrically unexplainable dizziness (Schmid, Henningsen, Dieterich, Sattel, & Lahmann, 2011). Cesar Monzon

3 Cancer Patients and CBT Depression is common in cancer patients occurring in 25-30% of them(Brothers, Yang, Strunk, & Anderson, 2011). Fatigue and general quality of life are impacted by depression but CBT can combat this effects in most cases(Brothers, Yang, Strunk, & Anderson, 2011). Constant CBT treatment with individuals with cancer has shown very significant effects but sadly remission of the major depression also occurs at a very high rate even with treatment(Brothers, Yang, Strunk, & Anderson, Cesar Monzon

4 Emotional Intelligence Emotional Intelligence is defined as " an individual's ability to reason with emotion across all domans, and to use emotions in adaptive ways"(Kaplowitz, Safran, & Muran, 2011). Your therapist's abilities and methods of handling their own emotions are significant in determining how well they help you with yours(Kaplowitz, Safran, & Muran, 2011). Cesar Monzon

5 Therapist and Results Therapist characterists have some sort of influence on patient success outside of what methods they may be using (Kaplowitz, Safran, & Muran, 2011). A theraptists emotional intelligence may change how the therapist structures treatment and the strategy in which they take to apply psychological research to their patients needs (Kaplowitz, Safran, & Muran, 2011). Cesar Monzon
