Providers at Daring Minds Therapy use a variety of approaches, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, ACT, and Person-Centered Therapy to address client's concerns and help the client live to their fullest potential.
Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
As a dyadic intervention tool, CPP promotes and strengthens a close, safe, and nurturing relationship between a parent and their child, age 5 and under.
CPP is geared toward young children who have experienced at least one traumatic event and, as a result, are experiencing challenging behaviors, attachment issues, and/or mental health problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Through close observation, followed by guidance and coaching, parents gain a better understanding of the needs of the child. They can more effectively read their cues and respond in nurturing and developmentally appropriate ways. The parent may also gain insight on how their own upbringing, or "ghosts in the nursery", contributes to the parenting of their own children.
Ultimately, CPP helps restore a child's sense of safety and attachment and improves their cognitive, behavioral and social functioning by fostering a stronger, more supportive child-parent relationship.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.
