Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy focuses on the role of thinking in what we do and how we feel. It works on the assumption that changing faulty thinking will lead to improvement in mood and behavior. CBT helps the client replace negative coping skills, thoughts, emotions and behaviors with more positive ones; this is done by examining and correcting the client’s way of thinking about and reacting to certain situations.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Drawing on the emotional regulation and thought process challenging techniques of CBT, DBT adds distress tolerance, mindfulness and acceptance to therapy. The term “dialectical” refers to the balance between acceptance and change DBT strives to establish.
Psychodynamic Therapy is an insight therapy, a therapeutic approach that attempts to uncover the relationship between unconscious motivations and present behaviors. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are to increase a client’s self-awareness and to build an understanding of how his or her past influences behaviors. Rather than treating the behaviors themselves, causes of behavioral problems are worked through.
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy is a type of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. It focuses on the role of thought processes in behavior. The goal of REBT is to rewrite faulty and irrational thinking patterns, which lead to faulty and irrational behaviors. Replacing maladaptive thoughts with rational ones will lead to more desirable behavior.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Therapy centers on emotion management and Attachment Theory. It purports that an inability to properly manage and use emotions leads to turmoil. EFT clients are guided in better identifying, experiencing, exploring, making sense of and transforming their emotions. Attachment Theory asserts that humans are hardwired to establish emotional bonds. EFT focuses on re-establishing and strengthening these bonds within the family or relationship.
Solution Focused Therapy
Solution Focused Therapy focuses on the client’s desired outcome of therapy, rather than the problems that caused him/her to seek help. After learning about the client’s goals and ideals, the therapist assists in establishing steps to take toward said goals and ideals. The therapist also assists in building skills and resources that will help the client realize the outcome he/she hopes for.
Christian/LDS Counseling utilizes an array of therapeutic techniques while integrating religious teachings. A client’s spiritual beliefs may be impacting the symptoms that brought him/her to therapy, and may be helpful in overcoming problems. Christian Counseling is used to the extent the client is comfortable.
EMDR is helpful for trauma, particularly PTSD. EMDR is based on the idea that much of psychopathology is due to problems processing traumatic experiences. This treatment approach addresses past experience, current triggers, and future potential challenges resulting in a decrease of present symptoms, an improvement in the view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and resolution of present and future possible triggers.
Mind-Body Wellness focused therapies are based on the theory that the mind and body have a powerful effect on each other. That is, your thoughts affect how you feel while how you feel affects your thinking. The goal of this type of therapy is to magnify the positive effect the mind can have on health and the body by helping the client establish and maintain a positive outlook. Clients may also learn positive coping techniques to utilize when facing stress.
