Supportive Psychotherapy

Supportive psychotherapy is a psychotherapeutic approach that integrates various therapeutic techniques. The aim of supportive psychotherapy is to reduce and relieve the intensity of presenting symptoms, such as distress or disability. 


The American Psychological Association defines supportive psychotherapy as a form of psychotherapy that aims to relieve emotional distress and symptoms without probing into the sources of conflicts or attempting to alter basic personality structure. It emphasizes reassurance, reeducation, advice, persuasion, remotivation, and encouragement of desirable behavior.
