Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) and Comprehensive Energy Psychology (CEP) are two very simple yet efficient forms of therapy designed to accelerate the brain’s ability to process and heal troubling memories, thoughts, feelings, phobias, etc. Both modalities have been proven effective with reintegrating memories in a more adaptive manner. Some clients can experience relief or positive effects in just a few sessions. EMDR and CEP are effective in reducing or alleviating trauma-related symptoms, whether the traumatic event occurred many years ago or yesterday.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD, ABPP. It emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training classes to help people learn and use new skills and strategies to develop a life that they experience as worth living. DBT skills include skills for mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Comprehensive Energy Psychology (CEP): Energy psychology (EP) is a collection of mind-body approaches for understanding and improving human functioning. EP focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield). These systems and processes exist, and interact, within individuals and between people. They are also influenced by cultural and environmental factors.
Group therapy helps individuals work through and overcome a multitude of concerns and interpersonal problems of daily life while assisting each client in experiencing a supportive and inclusive environment for healing and growth. The therapists at Mindful Wellness of Arizona recognize the effectiveness of group therapy and will offer specialized and meaningful groups throughout the year.
Adult and Adolescent DBT Groups: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) was developed by Marsha Linehan in order to help clients develop skills and strategies to assist in building a “life worth living”. Group skills training classes help people to learn and integrate DBT skills including mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness into daily living.
