We use techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You’re shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis. Specific Cognitive Behavioral Therapies are available for depression, anxiety, AD/HD, trauma, and more. CBT is effective for children, teenagers, and adults.
Trauma-Focused CBT as defined by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is a psychosocial treatment model designed to treat posttraumatic stress and related emotional and behavioral problems in children and adolescents ages 3 to18 years. Initially developed to address problems associated with childhood sexual abuse, TF-CBT has been modified and tested with children who have experienced a wide array of traumas, including domestic violence, traumatic loss, war, commercial sexual exploitation, and the often multiple and complex traumas experienced by children who are placed in foster care. TF-CBT is appropriate for use with children exposed to trauma whose parents or caregivers did not participate in the abuse.”
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to improve well-being. The client is encouraged to accept negative thoughts and emotions as a part of normal psychological functioning and to commit to action based on the patient’s own values and goals. This therapy is based on the idea that ineffective attempts to control or avoid negative thoughts and emotions lead to increased psychological suffering.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) as defined by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
Motivational Interviewing is a clinical approach that helps people with mental health and substance use disorders and other chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and asthma make positive behavioral changes to support better health.
