Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) – Focuses on the patient’s current life and relationships within his or her family, social, school and work environments. Patients learn to evaluate the way they interact with others and to develop coping strategies for dealing with relationships and communication problems.
Cognitive Therapies – Focuses on identifying and correcting distorted thinking patterns and perceptions that can lead to feelings and behaviors that can be troublesome or self-defeating.

Behavioral Therapies – Focuses on changing unwanted or unhealthy behaviors through education and action, reinforcement, and desensitization.

CBT is a short term, goal oriented psychotherapy that combines techniques of both cognitive and behavioral therapy to identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviors in order to replace them with more balanced ones.

Mindfulness is defined as “paying attention to one’s experience on purpose, in the present moment, in a non-judgmental manner.” Mindfulness practice is a component of many different treatment strategies.
Biofeedback – Focuses on improving awareness and control of stress levels. A biofeedback machine, a device that digitally measures a person’s stress level, is used to help improve self-regulation.
