Our licensed clinicians are trained in several therapeutic approaches to serve the community. All EHN therapists are certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and reflect the principles of a recovery focused model. Our clinical staff is also trained in EMDR, DBT, TF-CBT, Play Therapy, among other modalities.
- CBT is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders including phobias, addictions, depression, and anxiety.
- TF-CBT – Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a therapeutic intervention designed to help children, adolescents, and their parents overcome the impact of traumatic events. For example, it is designed to help with traumas related to sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, and community violence, an unexpected death of a loved one, natural disasters and war.
- EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy) is effective for post-traumatic stress. However, clinicians also have reported success using EMDR in treatment of conditions such as panic attacks, complicated grief, dissociative disorder, disturbing memories, phobias, pain disorders, performance anxiety, stress reduction, addictions, sexual and/or physical abuse, body dysmorphic disorders and personality disorders.
- Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a manualized therapy used by clinicians to help people recover from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related conditions. It includes elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) treatments. It has proven effective in treating PTSD across a variety of populations, including combat veterans, sexual assault victims, and refugees. CPT can be provided in individual and group treatment formats.
- Play therapy is a form of counseling or psychotherapy that uses play to communicate with and help people, especially children, to prevent or resolve psychosocial challenges. This is thought to help them towards better social integration, growth and development, emotional modulation, and trauma resolution.
- Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) uses very specific, step-by-step, live coached sessions with both the caregiver and the child. PCIT places emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing negative parent-child interaction patterns. In PCIT, parents are taught specific skills to use with their child to establish, improve, or maintain a nurturing and secure relationship while increasing their child’s positive behavior and decreasing negative behavior. PCIT can include multiple siblings and both parents.
Peer support specialists are people in recovery from mental illness who work to help others get well. Peer support specialists are different than therapists or doctors because they have learned about mental illness and recovery, not from a book, but through their own personal experience. Peer support specialists are living proof that recovery is real. Their role at Emergence is to share their experience with clients to inspire and assist with their own recovery.
- EHN offers a wide array of peer support services through our certified Mental Health Peer Specialists, Veteran Peer Specialists, Homeless Peer Specialists and Substance Abuse Peer Specialists.
