Systemic therapy is a therapeutic approach that is applied in the treatment of disorders conceptualized as the expression of alterations in interactions, relational styles and communication patterns of a social group. That is, to treat the system as a whole.
The goal of systemic therapy is to understand the problems that occur in the systems and to change the dynamics of communication, etc. that are produced in them to obtain a greater sense of well-being for all the members that are a part of the system.
Mindfulness is focusing our attention on the present moment. It is a process to create awareness, focusing on what is happening “here and now”, accepting it as it is, without trying to change, or evaluate anything. Its concept is a fuller connection to the present. It is a practice to strengthen our concentration on what happens within us and what surrounds us.
The goal of mindfulness is to achieve a deep state of consciousness free of judgments about our sensations, feelings or thoughts, to pay attention to what is happening inside us at all times.
Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of unhelpful or negative thoughts so that you can visualize demanding situations more clearly and respond to them more effectively.
The main objective of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is to help the person to solve the specific problem that has led them to the therapy and to prevent its reappearance.
Acceptance and Commitment therapy emphasizes dialogue and the functional context and seeks acceptance and a non-judgmental attitude as a way to find well-being. Self-discovery and clarification of values are essential elements in this type of therapy, in which the client must ask themselves and question what kind of person they want to be, what is truly valuable in their lives and what beliefs and values they act upon.
It aims to create a rich and meaningful life for the client, accepting the pain that inevitably comes with it.
Compassion-focused therapy helps those who struggle with shame and self-criticism that can result from early experiences of abuse or neglect. It also teaches clients to cultivate compassion and self-compassion skills, which can help regulate mood and generate feelings of security, self-acceptance, and comfort.
It helps the client develop skills such as compassion, self-compassion, and mindfulness. They are usually given assignments to practice these skills during non-session days.
