Evidence-Based Treatment Interventions
Our primary therapists work in one-on-one sessions to identify specific issues. Moreover, to explore feelings, work through challenges, and set goals that ultimately lead to healing.
It is through these individual therapy sessions that clients can understand the meaning and extent of their eating disorder behavior. One of the primary goals of these sessions is to develop skills and techniques. They may also address an individual’s issues with self-image, problematic thinking, and behavior change.
Individual Therapy Services
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A type of psychotherapy in which we challenge negative patterns of thought about the self and the world. Therefore, we can alter behavior patterns or treat the disorder. The goal is to learn positive behaviors and thought patterns that contribute to a healthy life and recovery from eating disorders.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): A therapy that addresses psychological distress. This is an attempt or desire to suppress negative internal experiences, such as emotions, thoughts, or bodily sensations. These therapy sessions can help a client in achieving greater clarity of personal values and belief, then acting upon them and finding purpose and meaning in their life.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): A type of psychotherapy that helps better connect cognitive and behavioral therapies. This is a way to learn and adapt healthier methods of coping with painful emotions through acceptance and change. The essence of DBT is founded on four skill sets intended to assist in improving coping skills: increasing self-awareness, how to regulate self-defeating thoughts, correct black-or-white thinking, and how to manage conflict and stress better.
Experiential Therapies: A term is used to refer to different types of therapy that engage clients in some type of activity or action that explores underlying issues, such as repressed emotions or unhealthy behavior. Many clients who find it difficult to identify these issues find experimental therapy to be incredibly helpful. When faced with challenging real-world situations in experiential therapy, clients learn and practice recovery skills. Furthermore, they begin making better choices that align with their true values.
Examples of experiential therapy can be meal challenges, shopping challenges, equine therapy, art therapy, body image improvement workshops, and more.
