French to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical (general) / IBS
French term or phrase:psychotherapie de soutien
In this context, the term refers to IBS (irritable bowel syndrom) which is thought to have a major psychological component. But this term is used a lot in French for anything having to do with psychiatry/psychology etc. From depression to post-traumatic-stress-disorder etc.
Anyone know the equivalent in English?
Explanation: "Psychotherapie de soutien" is simply a basic form of psychotherapy, or even a simple psychological support for patients facing chronic diseases but presenting no psychic or psychiatric trouble. therefore "soutien" is not translated.
