Supportive psychotherapy is probably the most widely practice treatment for psychiatric patients.  The mandate is to set explicit goals and a clear agenda. Change stems from learning and from the identification with an accepting, well-related therapist, not through resolution of unconscious conflicts. A good outcome of therapy is increased self-esteem, reduction in experienced anxiety, and a resultant increase in adaptive functioning. (50 pp.)
