    Psychotherapy And Counselling: Attitudes Toward Mental Health Seeking Services In Nigeria

    Abstract

    This paper explored the attitudes of Nigerians toward mental health seeking services with
    regards to the reality of psychotherapy and counseling in Nigeria. Some cultural variables
    that fuel the supposed neglect of the mental health issues in Nigeria were highlighted and
    way-forward offered. Culture and society tend to influence all spheres of life including
    mental health, mental illness, and mental health services. In view of this fact it becomes
    pertinent to develop mental health services that would be more acceptable to the culture and
    social environment where recipients are located. In addition, victims of mental health
    challenges are reassured to feel safe in the hands of counsellors and psychotherapists, as
    they passionately abhor stigmatization, social distancing and numerous cultural obnoxious
    treatments to individuals impacted by mental health disorders or illnesses in Nigeria.

    Psychotherapy And Effective Counseling In Social Casework Practice

    Psychotherapy And Effective Counseling In Social Casework Practice

    Abstract

    Counseling is a process in which the counselor assists the counselee to make interpretation
    of facts relating to a choice, plan, or adjustment. This assistance may take many forms such
    as educational, vocational, social, personal, emotional and moral. While psychotherapy is
    the treatment of mental illness by discussing somebody’s problems with them rather than
    giving them drugs. This paper attempts to look at how professional counseling should be
    done, the key difference between the two courses of therapeutic communication treatment
    and how do contemporary theories of counseling work with families’ adjustment and solving
    problem. The study was conducted using secondary method of data. The secondary sources
    used data from internet, newspapers and journal articles. The paper recommends the need
    for psychotherapy and counseling practice in Nigeria; for a long time, the problem of
    integration of the different ethnic groups in Nigeria may well be a problem which
    psychotherapy and counseling may help to solve.
