Cognition

 

Set Goals & Follow Through

Cognitive rehabilitation is a program that consists of guided therapy to learn or relearn ways to communicate and increase focus connected to task oriented activities. It’s a structured set of therapeutic exercises designed to improve an individual’s ability to think, use judgment and make decisions; instilling children and/or adults with cognitive skills they don’t have, due to deficits in executive function.

The goal is to improve:

  • Memory
  • Attention
  • Perception
  • Learning
  • Planning
  • Judgment

Restorative cognitive rehabilitation techniques are used to retrain the brain in normal or compensatory function. We provide children with the tools necessary to work past their deficits. This enables them to create a world with opportunities that were previously thought to be impossible, both at home and in their communities.

Comportment

 

Self Control & Tolerance

Personal conduct is of the utmost importance when it comes to social and academic settings. This aspect of therapy is focused on self-control. We teach people how shift their lives into a positive direction to achieve long-term goals.

Comportment focused guided therapy concentrates on identifying and developing positive characteristics connected to personal conduct. We help children pinpoint their destructive behaviors and assist them with cultivating mannerisms that convey an air of self-confidence & pride.

During this module, our clients develop the tools necessary to reign in impulsive behavior, which in turn allows them to plan and evaluate their actions, rather than making hasty decisions.

Rational emotive behavior therapy is a comprehensive psychotherapy which focuses on resolving emotional and behavioral problems and disturbances. This modality enables our clients to lead happier and more fulfilling lives.

Each client is provided with a custom-tailored program, to meet his or her individual needs. We have found that combining the above-mentioned approach with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provides effective results in a timely basis.

Communication

 

Communication Skills & Perspective

We provide guided therapy that focuses on the communication skills needed to function and prosper within a community, through implementing these methods, children can connect effectively within their academic settings & family structures.

This module focuses on the following aspects:

  • Verbal Abilities: Face-to-face communication and how it’s incorporated within daily life
  • Non-Verbal Abilities: Body language, gestures, attire, and appropriate actions
  • Written Word: School assignments, letters, emails, the internet, and other media
  • Visualization: Incorporate graphs, charts, maps, logos, and other visual representations of communication
  • Interpersonal Communication: Skills needed for both verbal and non-verbal communication, focusing more on body language and other communication methods
  • Intrapersonal Communication: Activity that occurs within one’s own body. This guided therapy focuses on integrating intrapersonal communication with the many forms of interpersonal communication to establish free flowing connection across various settings

Character

 

Self Respect, Integrity & Compassion

This area of therapy delves into the development of strong moral principles. Nurturing and growing character enables children to expand their capacity for trust, friendship and solid decision making. These qualities open the door to happiness and connection.

There are three main components that define character:

  1. Self-respect
  2. Integrity
  3. Compassion

This guided therapy focuses on improving intellect, motivation, initiative and personal responsibility to create better friendships and more intimate, trust based relationships.

When one has social difficulties, self-confidence, pride and motivation often take a hit. It’s very difficult to form lasting bonds without addressing these issues. To improve and broaden relationships the client must examine their moral principles and push themselves to empathize and connect with others.

This process reveals 5 clues to building character. The client will progress through the following stages during this aspect of therapy:

  1. Emotional Intelligence: Either controlled or spontaneous
  2. Motivation: Finding the drive that leads to success
  3. Happiness: The capacity for finding satisfaction
  4. Goodness: Incorporating the importance of integrity within decision making
  5. Friendships: and its capacity for reciprocity, closeness, vulnerability and eventual trust
