This education is designed to help empower the client to improve how they handle a physical or mental health condition. Psychoeducation is the linking of psychology with education.
Psychoeducation may be general or very specialized. Sometimes, psychoeducation consists of simply sharing information about a condition, including treatments and medications. Other times, psychoeducation can include providing normalization of the individual’s emotional frustrations. Psychoeducation is sometimes viewed as an intervention and otherwise as a part of an intervention for mental health conditions.
