Approach to treatment
Dr. Abel believes that there are two keys to successful treatment of people with mental health problems.
- When it comes to mental health, versatility is critical - what works for one person might very well not work for another (e.g., length of treatment, need for medication, type of therapy).
- People need to feel understood in order to move forward.
- Bringing to the forefront his own personality through his life experiences, Dr. Abel relates to and engages his patients on a meaningful level.
