What’s the difference in psychiatry vs psychotherapy treatments at UCLA BHA?
Psychiatric treatment at UCLA Behavioral Health Associates (BHA) is a collaborative model between your primary care provider and your psychiatrist and other treatment members as necessary. UCLA BHA emphasizes brief-treatment.
Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment process that provides a supportive environment where you can talk openly with a licensed provider who is objective, neutral and non-judgmental. You and your provider can discuss specific goals for therapy.
