HHS Therapeutic Treatments

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) treatment is a type of psychotherapy — or talk therapy — that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral approach. DBT emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a psycho-social intervention that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.

Solutions Focused Therapy

Solution-focused therapy is a goal-directed collaborative approach to psycho therapeutic change that is conducted through direct observation of clients’ responses to a series of precisely constructed questions.

Video Self-Modeling

Video self-modeling is a form of observational learning in which individuals observe themselves performing a behavior successfully on video, and then imitate the targeted behavior.

Pet Assisted Therapy

Animal-assisted therapy often serves in conjunction with traditional work done by a licensed psychotherapist, social worker, or other mental health–care provider. Dogs are the primary animals used, although various animal-assisted programs offer different animals for people with different physical and emotional needs. Animals can provide a sense of calm, comfort, or safety and divert attention away from a stressful situation and toward one that provides pleasure. Advocates of animal-assisted therapy say that developing a bond with an animal can help people develop a better sense of self-worth and trust, stabilize their emotions, and improve their communication, self-regulation, and socialization skills.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

A briefer version of EMDR, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, or ART, was created to help people who have experienced trauma. The protocol that is delivered is meant to bring up original traumatic experiences and actually change the way that the information is ultimately stored.

Outdoor Nature- Assisted
Therapy

Nature-assisted therapy: an intervention with the aim to treat, hasten recovery, and/or rehabilitate patients with a disease or a condition of ill health, with the fundamental principle that the therapy involves plants, natural materials, and/or outdoor environment, without any therapeutic involvement of extra human.

Play Therapy

Although sometimes used with adults, play therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach primarily used to help children ages 3 to 12 explore their lives and freely express repressed thoughts and emotions through play. Therapeutic play normally takes place in a safe, comfortable playroom, where very few rules or limits are imposed on the child, encouraging free expression and allowing the therapist to observe the child’s choices, decisions, and play style. The goal is to help children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new and more positive ways to solve problems.

Telehealth

Online therapy, also known as telemental health, a therapist or counselor provides psychological counseling and support over the internet through email, video conferencing, online chat, or a phone call.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the psychological process of purposely bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment without judgment, which one develops through the practice of meditation and through other training.
