Modalities Used

N

Psychoeducation

involves the therapist to educate the client regarding ways to cope with symptoms and deal with life situations.

N

Client Centered

involves the therapist to establish with the client a warm, safe environment based upon the Rogerian model.

N

Dialectic Behavioral Therapy

involves the client to recognize that they are reacting abnormally to an emotional stimulus and to help them return to base line quickly. This method was founded by Marsha Linnehan.

N

Traumatic Incident Reduction

involves allowing the client to “view” the traumatic event as if they were watching a video. This method allows the client to separate oneself from the trauma.

N

Guided Imagery

involves allowing a client to experience an anxiety providing event and regaining control by reducing anxiety and finding a safe environment in the trauma.

N

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

involves teaching the client to think about the event from a rational less ego- centric perspective to lead to a more realistic emotional response.

N

Addictions/Substance Abuse

involves the addressing of a substance or a process as a coping mechanism to avoid the truth. The purpose is to stop the addiction and find more life-giving coping mechanisms based upon the 12 step model.

N

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing [EMDR]

involves the client to generate anxiety by producing images and thoughts in a stream of consciousness while having the right/left hemisphere of the brain stimulated to remove the emotional content. This method was founded by Dr. Shapiro.

N

Narrative

involves separating a person from their problem. The purpose is to encourage a client to rely on their own skills to minimize problems that exist in their lives. Their personal experiences become their stories.

N

Psychodynamic

involves the client to uncover unconscious thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

N

Inner Healing

involves addressing where the memory of a trauma (small t or large T) is being held in the body and in the emotional pain.

N

Externalization

involves a client to physically externalize emotional pain in order to be released from mind/body/spirit residual pain. This method is based upon the Elizabeth Kubler-Ross model.

N

Inner Child Work

involves the client to use different hemispheres of the brain by using the non-denominate hand in response to questions. The result is the recognition of what part of self is ruling.
