Before seeing Dr. Marvin, Bob has been subject to a variety of therapies. The most noticeable therapy being drug therapy. Bob talks about having Valium, Halcyon, and Seconol, all anti-anxiety drugs and all indicative of biological therapy. Bob also seems familiar with psychodynamic therapy from his "free associations from childhood" he does for Dr. Marvin. The main therapy focus seems to be on "Baby Steps" therapy, which is similar to desensitization - take small steps in order to overcome big fears. Dr. Marvin also attempts some cognitive therapy by giving Bob a prescription to "take a vacation from his problems." This is supposed to allow Bob to change the way he thinks about his problems so that they are not a crisis any longer and he can just forget about them, because he is on vacation from those problems. Bob also attempts some of his own therapies. "I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful" repeated over and over again by Bob is his own attempt at cognitive therapy and changing the way he thinks about how he feels. Bob also uses behavioral therapy in exposing himself to water by sailing. Granted, he is chained to the boat and is wearing a life preserver, but he is learning to desensitize

Marvin . During Bob’s first appointment with Dr. Marvin, Dr. Marvin gave Bob the book, Baby Steps. Then, Bob started to literally take baby steps wherever he went, which is how Bob managed to leave his house and go on a bus to go to New Hampshire. After Bob arrived in New Hampshire and found Dr. Marvin, Dr. Marvin told him to take a vacation from his problems. That was a part of Bob’s breakthrough in relation to his mental illnesses. Bob decided to stay for vacation in New Hampshire. In addition to Baby Steps, Bob believed he was getting isolation therapy when Dr. Marvin left him stranded in the side of the street. Lastly, Leo Marvin attempted to kill Mr. Wiley by tying Bob up and putting two bags of explosives around Bob’s neck, which Bob thought Leo was giving him death therapy. The death therapy made Bob realize that being tied up represents him being tied up inside and if he does not undo the knots, he will blow
What About Bob is a movie about a man who has many psychological problems. He is not the only one with problems though. The movie What About Bob? shows many psychological disorders in a comedic light. From Agoraphobia, or the fear of open spaces, to Paranoid Personality Disorder. This causes people to suffer paranoia or have a relentless mistrust and suspicion of anybody other than themselves, normally when there is no reason to fear or be suspicious of anyone at all. Most of the characters in the movie express at least one major psychological disorder, and some even express two or more.
