The EMDR institute describes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. During EMDR the therapist will guide the client through disturbing material while providing external stimuli including eye movements or tapping.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of talking therapy which is used to treat symptoms of trauma, anxiety, depression and other mental illness. CBT focuses on addressing behaviors, though processing and introducing healthy coping mechanisms, among other things.
Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is similar to CBT in that it focuses on behavior and thinking patterns. DBT has proven useful for clients with suicidal thoughts, borderline personality disorders and clients with multiple diagnoses. DBT focuses on teaching skills to manage mental illness.
Child centered play therapy (CCPT) allows children with emotional, behavioral and social needs to process their inner needs and experiences in a way that is easy and non threatening. We are currently working on getting fully trained on CCPT.
