Diagnosis is the process of determining the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms. Appropriate diagnosis is a vital component of effective psychiatric treatment. A proper diagnosis leads to treatment with appropriate medications and therapies that are approved for the patient’s specific illness. Diagnostic tools used in other areas of medicine (i.e., imaging or lab tests) are not sophisticated or nuanced enough to diagnose psychiatric illnesses. Instead, psychiatrists utilize structured and individualized patient interviews to make accurate diagnoses, which then informs the type of treatment that will be most helpful.
Common treatments offered by Cluver Psychiatric Group are listed below.
Many psychiatric illnesses can be treated with FDA approved medications. Determining whether a medication is appropriate for your particular illness requires diagnostic clarification followed by personalized selection of the medication that is most likely to help you. Consideration is given to your age, specific symptoms, history of previous medication trials, other medications you currently take, and your other medical conditions. Genetic testing is helpful in some cases.
Cognitive therapy is based on the theory that our thoughts, feelings, and behavior are all intertwined. The goal of cognitive therapy is to change one’s thoughts and, more generally, thought processes, which can in turn lead to a change in one’s behavior and feelings. Cognitive therapy is commonly used to treat people with depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Behavioral therapy also aims to change both one’s thoughts and behaviors, but it starts with a focus on the behaviors, which in turn can lead changes in negative thoughts and feelings. Behavioral therapy is also used to treat people with depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy focuses on reducing stress associated with past disturbing experiences. EMDR involves specific eye movements to access and process trauma stored in the brain. That reprocessing can change the way the memory is stored in the brain to allow you to recall a memory without the associated intense emotional response.
This unique therapy takes a narrative approach that aims to separate problems from the person. Our life experiences become stories and stories shape our identities. Narrative therapy helps clients deconstruct stories in order to make sense of their experiences.
Couples therapy focuses on improving relationship satisfaction and resolving interpersonal conflict through exploring the root causes of conflict and developing a better understanding of the dynamics of the relationship. This type of therapy also focuses on improving communication skills so a romantic relationship can heal and grow.
Insight-oriented therapy, as its name suggests, is all about gaining insight into a patient’s motivation, methods of operation, and patterns. It is commonly used to treat patients with depression or anxiety.
Interpersonal therapy is dedicated to changing how one interacts with others by analyzing and adapting communication styles. Interpersonal therapy is often recommended for patients with depression or anxiety.
ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that is derived from traditional cognitive and behavioral therapy. Patients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations, allowing them to make necessary changes in their behavior.
GRIEF & LOSS COUNSELING
Grief counseling is a type of professional therapy designed to help you work through the various stages and range of emotions you may feel after a loss. It is important to note that there is no common pathway for grief, everyone experiences it differently. Counseling will help you address your reactions and feelings as you process.
Positive psychology takes a strength based approach that utilizes gratitude, mindfulness, and self-compassion to foster emotional wellness.
