In working with Adults, Parents or Older Adolescents, I like to first establish goals for therapy. While it can be inferred the hope is always to ‘feel better,’ in my opinion, patients engaging in psychological treatment should expect more from their treatment team.
For this reason, I approach our clients from a bio-psychosocial treatment modality. In essence, this means I do explore all influences which may bring about changes in behavior and/or mood: biological, psychological and social. The specific causes of emotional dysregulation are unique for every patient, and thusly require a highly individualized treatment approach.
