Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and modifying dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior that contribute to emotional distress and psychological issues. It is based on the concept that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, and changing negative thoughts and behaviors can lead to improvements in mood and functioning.

Coping Skills Training

Coping skills training is a therapeutic approach designed to help individuals manage stressful situations and emotional difficulties more effectively by using specific strategies. This type of training is often an integral part of various psychotherapeutic treatments, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and is used for a wide range of psychological issues, from anxiety and depression to stress and anger management.

Person-Centered Therapy

Person-centered therapy, also known as client-centered or Rogerian therapy, is a form of psychotherapy developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940s. It is based on the principle that an individual has within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concept, attitudes, and self-directed behavior. The role of the therapist in this approach is to facilitate a psychological environment conducive to significant personal growth and change.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Originally developed for treating borderline personality disorder, DBT has since been adapted for other kinds of mental health problems. It combines principles of behavioral psychology with cognitive therapy and mindfulness. DBT emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment, focusing on the synthesis or integration of opposites as a cornerstone of its approach, particularly the acceptance of experiences as they are and the commitment to change them.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, mixed in different ways with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. The core of ACT is to accept what is out of personal control while committing to action that improves and enriches life.

Relation-Cultural Therapy (RCT)

RCT posits that a lack of healthy relationships can lead to psychological problems. It emphasizes the importance of creating growth-fostering relationships and asserts that relationships are the source of psychological change. It's particularly popular in treating women and marginalized groups, focusing on the impact of societal inequality on mental health.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This therapy stems from psychoanalytic theory, but it's less intensive than psychoanalysis. It focuses on the psychological roots of emotional suffering. Its hallmarks include self-reflection and self-examination, and the use of the relationship between therapist and patient as a window into problematic relationship patterns in the patient’s life.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapeutic technique used primarily to treat symptoms associated with traumatic memories and other adverse life experiences. EMDR therapy is based on the idea that symptoms arise when traumatic or disturbing experiences are incompletely processed by the brain. The therapy involves guiding the client to recall distressing images while the therapist directs lateral eye movements, taps, or tones, which are believed to facilitate the processing of emotional information. As a result, the emotional charge of the memory decreases, making it less distressing and allowing the individual to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms.

Social Skills Training

Social Skills Training (SST) is a form of behavior therapy used to improve interpersonal skills and social interactions among individuals who experience difficulties in social settings. This therapy is particularly beneficial for those with social anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and other conditions that affect social interaction. SST aims to teach concrete skills necessary for successful social communication and relationships.

Talk Therapy

Talk therapy, also known as psychotherapy, is a general term for treating mental health problems by talking about your condition and related issues with a mental health professional. It's an effective treatment for a wide range of emotional difficulties and mental illnesses, providing a safe environment to explore feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, with the goal of facilitating positive change.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

This form of therapy incorporates mindfulness practices such as meditation and breathing exercises to help people become more aware of their thoughts and feelings without becoming overwhelmed by them. It's effective in reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress, by helping individuals focus more on the present rather than dwelling on past or future concerns.

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)

EFT is based on premises that emotions are key to identity and that emotions guide individual choice and decision making. This therapy focuses on helping individuals understand and better manage their emotions, aiming to improve emotional regulation and develop personal resilience.

Psychoanalysis

Developed by Sigmund Freud, psychoanalysis is an intensive, long-term psychotherapeutic approach that examines how unconscious patterns of behavior, thoughts, and feelings affect current behavior. It's often conducted several times a week, utilizing techniques such as free association, analysis of resistance, and exploration of transference.
