Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT)Attachment-based family therapy (ABFT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the family's relationships and communication patterns. It is based on the theory that strong and secure attachments between family members are essential for emotional health and well-being. The goal of ABFT is to identify any problems in family relationships, enable family members to become more attuned to each other’s needs, and build a secure bond between them. It also helps family members to practice healthy communication skills, learn effective problem-solving strategies, and build trust within the family.
Existential PsychotherapyExistential psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes an individual’s subjective experience of existence. It is a philosophical approach to psychotherapy that views the individual as ultimately responsible for creating a meaningful life. This form of psychotherapy helps individuals explore their subjective experiences, understand their personal values and beliefs, find ways to live more authentically, and make meaningful choices. The ultimate goal is to help the individual reach a greater sense of self-awareness and personal fulfillment.
Family Attachment Narrative TherapyFamily Attachment Narrative Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping individuals to develop secure, healthy attachments to their family members. This type of therapy focuses on the narrative, or stories, that individuals tell about their family relationships and how they view themselves in those relationships. Through this therapeutic process, individuals are encouraged to explore their past experiences with family members, gain a better understanding of their current family dynamics, and develop healthier, more secure attachments to their family members. Therapists using this approach believe that the caregivers are the most crucial component in the healing process, and therefore incorporate caregiver narratives as an important part of the therapeutic process in addressing and repairing the unmet needs of the client. This approach to treatment is primarily designed for children, teens, and young adults who are experiencing issues related to identity, disrupted attachment, and early childhood trauma.
Family Systems TherapyFamily Systems Therapy is an approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes the importance of understanding how the family functions as a whole, and how individual family members interact and affect one another. It focuses on how family dynamics, such as communication patterns, roles, and power dynamics, shape behavior, and how changing these dynamics can lead to positive change. Family Systems Therapy is a collaborative approach, where the therapist works with the family as a whole to identify and address areas of conflict and distress.
LogotherapyLogotherapy is based on the belief that our primary motivation for living is to find meaning and purpose in life. Logotherapy was developed by Viktor Frankl, a psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor. It focuses on discovering a person's unique meaning and purpose, and helping them to live a meaningful/purposeful life. This type of therapy is goal-oriented and often involves exploring a person's life experiences, values, and beliefs. Logotherapy may also involve creative activities such as writing, music, art, and other creative outlets.
Person-Centered Therapy (Rogerian Therapy)Person-centered therapy, or Rogerian therapy, was developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940’s. It is a form of talk therapy that emphasizes the importance of providing psychological safety, unconditional positive regard, and empathic understanding to clients. This type of therapy is based on the belief that individuals have an innate capacity for self-actualization and self-understanding and that the therapist's role is to provide a supportive environment in which this process can take place. Through the use of active listening, open-ended questions, and non-judgmental reflection, the therapist helps the client to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a safe and accepting environment. By doing so, clients are able to gain insight into their issues, develop a greater understanding of themselves, and work towards personal growth.
Systems Theory / TherapySystems therapy is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on understanding how people's behavior is affected by their relationships with others. This form of therapy is based on the idea that the individual is embedded within a larger system, such as a family unit or work environment, and that changes to that system can cause changes in an individual's behavior. Systems therapy emphasizes the importance of understanding how these systems interact and how they can be changed to improve the individual's mental health. The therapist works to identify patterns of behavior in the system, identify areas of conflict or stress, and help the individuals develop strategies to make changes within the system that will lead to healthier outcomes.
