At Married to Navy Counseling Services we use evidence-based interventions such as:
EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy is a structured therapy that encourages clients to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories.
CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an intervention method that changes the way clients think about themselves and their surroundings. It enables clients to recognize their automatic thought patterns and gives them the skills they need to disrupt these harmful patterns.
DBT Dialectical Behavior Therapy was developed to create a way to help people with extreme or unstable emotions and harmful self-destructive behaviors.
MI Motivational Interviewing is a focused, directive, and client-centered counseling method that involves supporting a client’s motivation to change. It attempts to move a client from a state of uncertainty and indecision towards finding the motivation to make positive decisions to accomplish established goals.
ACT Assertive Community Treatment is the idea that people will receive the best care when their mental healthcare providers work together as a team. It’s a model that provides flexible treatment with a multidisciplinary approach to support clients in all aspects of their life.
CPT Cognitive Processing Therapy is a specific type of cognitive behavioral therapy that has been effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD that have developed after experiencing a variety of traumatic events including child abuse, combat, rape, and natural disasters. CPT is generally delivered over 12 sessions and helps patients learn how to challenge and modify unhelpful beliefs related to the trauma. In so doing, the patient creates a new understanding and conceptualization of the traumatic event so that it reduces its ongoing negative effects on current life.
SFBT Solution Focused Brief Therapy is a short-term goal-focused, evidence-based therapeutic approach which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than dwelling on problems.
SFT Structural Family Therapy is a type of family therapy that looks at the structure of a family unit and improves the interactions between family members. During this process, the therapist creates a visual representation that identifies the family’s problems and how those issues are maintained through family dynamics.
