Dialectical Behavioral Therapy - DBT

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an innovative treatment method developed specifically to treat challenging clients in a way that preserves the morale of the therapist and the client. Research findings suggest that DBT is successful in reducing acting-out behavior, self-injury, and inpatient treatment time
Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Not every client who comes to The Center is “out of control.” RO DBT significantly differs from other treatment approaches, including standard DBT, by postulating that some clients have “too much of a good thing,” namely, too much self-control. Being over-controlled (OC) is connected to an overly activated fight-or-flight response, which interferes with proper social-signaling and a central human need: interpersonal connection. This core problem of emotional loneliness is seen as the basis for common symptoms or disorders among OC clients, like emotional distress, chronic anxiety and depression, disordered eating, self-harm and suicidal behaviors.

The Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) is an alcoholism treatment approach that aims to achieve abstinence by eliminating positive reinforcement for drinking and enhancing positive reinforcement for sobriety.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal psychologically in a manner similar to how they heal physically, utilizing the natural resources of the brain. As the most empirically supported model of psychotherapy, EMDR is a highly effective and efficient intervention, allowing clients to more quickly experience the significant relief that once took years to achieve.
