An List Of: Talking Therapies/Counselling For Mental Health/Depression: Systemic Constellation: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systemic_Constellations

The Systemic Constellation process is a trans-generational, phenomenological, therapeutic intervention with roots in family systems therapy (Psychodrama of Jacob Moreno, Virginia Satir, Iván Böszörményi-Nagy), existential-phenomenology (Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger), and the ancestor reverence of the South African Zulus.

The Systemic Constellation process is sanctioned by family therapy associations in Europe and is being integrated by thousands of licensed practitioners worldwide.

The work is also beginning to become known in the United States.

A Constellation can serve as an illuminating adjunct process within a conventional course of psychotherapy.

While it is rooted in the psychotherapeutic tradition, the method is distinguished from conventional psychotherapy in that, 1) the client hardly speaks; 2) its primary aim is to identify and release deep patterns embedded within the family system, not to explore or process narrative, cognitive or emotional content.

An List Of: Talking Therapies/Counselling For Mental Health/Depression: Systemic Therapy: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systemic_Therapy

Systemic Therapy, or Marriage and Family therapy, is a professional and conscious attempt and method to study, understand and cure disorders of the interactional whole of a family and its individual members as family members.

The aim of Family therapy is that the interactional patterns which prevent individual growth will change.

This is achieved especially emphasizing and trying to find the hidden positive resources in family’s interactional whole.

In Family therapy the therapist or a family therapy team meets in the session those family members willing to participate in discussion about the topic they have or some of family members has defined as a disorder or problem.

The number of sessions depends on the disorder, but the average is 5-20 sessions. The basic theory of family therapy is derived mainly from object relations theory, cognitive psychotherapy, systems theory and narrative approaches.

According to the main theoretical perspectives, family therapy can be classifies as follows: Psychodynamic; structural; behavioural or cognitive; strategic; reflective and narrative models.

The main indications of family therapy are as follows:

*1: Serious psychic disorders (e.g. schizophrenia, addictions and eating disorders);

*2: Interactional and transitional crises in a family’s life cycle (e.g. different separation and individuation crises or divorce crises);

*3: As a support of all other psychotherapies and other psychological and psychiatric therapies (even medication).

An List Of: Talking Therapies/Counselling For Mental Health/Depression: T-Groups (This article does not cite any references or sources: December 2006):

T-Groups: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-groups

In 1947, the Office of Naval Research and the National Education Association created the National Training Laboratories Institute in Bethel, Maine.

It pioneered the use of T-groups (Sensitivity or Laboratory Training) in which the learners use feedback, problem solving, and role play to gain insights into themselves, others, and groups.

The goal was to change the standards, attitudes and behavior of individuals.

This type of training is controversial as the behaviors it encourages are often self-disclosure and openness, which many people believe an organization ultimately punishes.

Also, a lot of the sensitivity training taking place uses excessive activities.

The feedback used in this type of training can be highly personal, hence it must be given by highly trained observers (trainers).

Thought Field Therapy: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thought_Field_Therapy

Thought Field Therapy, or TFT, is an alternative treatment developed by an American psychologist, Roger Callahan, Ph.D.

Its proponents say that it can heal of a variety of mental and physical ailments through specialized \"tapping\" with the fingers at meridian points on the upper body and hands.

Uses of the treatment: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thought_Field_Ther...ses_of_the_treatment

Callahan states that the process can relieve a wide variety of problems including psychological trauma, phobias, anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder, addictive urges, and depression.

He has also said in a recent interview on National Public Radio that \"TFT can successfully treat physical illnesses such as Malaria in as little as 15 minutes\".[citation needed] In articles on his website, Callahan has also stated that TFT can successfully prevent heart problems that may lead to sudden death, and that TFT has successfully stopped atrial fibrillation.[citation needed]

In 1985, in his first book on TFT, he said that specific phobias could be cured in as little as five minutes [1]. He also asserts that his most advanced level, Voice Technology (VT) can be performed over the phone using an undisclosed \"technology\".

The fee listed on Callahan's website for this training is $120,000.

Trainees must sign a confidentiality agreement not to disclose the trade secret behind VT.[citation needed]

Gary Craig, the first person to train in VT stated that although he paid $100,000 for the training, \"I am uncomfortable, however, with the inaccurate portrayal of VT.

I do not find it as advertised and I grow increasingly ill at ease with the many questions I get from the public.\" and \"The core \"secret\" behind VT is in the public domain and can be learned at a weekend workshop for a few hundred dollars.

Many people reading this use VT routinely without knowing it. Had I known this when I first took VT, I would have objected strenuously.

As it was, it took me quite awhile before I finally learned that I had spent $100,000 for something that I now know is used routinely by many practitioners in this profession.\"[2].

Less than 0.05% of the tens of thousands of TFT practitioners worldwide have chosen to train in and use VT and instead use predetermined algorithm treatments for which self-help training is available from around $250.

If the common algorithms fail, individuals are encouraged to see a therapist trained in the more expensive \"diagnostic\" techniques that use specific individualized treatment sequences which Callahan says will help most people not helped by algorithms [3] and VT demonstrations are done at many of the algorithm trainings.

If the lower level methods fail, Callahan recommends the VT.

Callahan gave his treatment the name \"Thought Field Therapy\" because he theorizes that when we think about an experience or thought associated with an emotional problem, we are tuning into a \"thought field,\" which he describes as \"the most fundamental concept in the TFT system\" and which \"...creates an imaginary, though quite real scaffold, upon which we may erect our explanatory notions\" [4].

Perturbations are said to be precisely encoded information contained in the thought field, which become activated whenever a person thinks about a problem.

Callahan maintains that these perturbations are the root cause of negative emotions and that each perturbation corresponds to a meridian point on the body (he calls this an isomorphism).

In order to eliminate the emotional upset, Callahan says that a precise sequence of meridian points must be tapped on. He theorizes that tapping unblocks or balances the flow of Qi [5].

The sequences can be determined by two of Callahan's proprietary \"causal diagnostic\" techniques: 1) an in-person method using muscle testing (Applied kinesiology) and 2) the Voice Technology, as described above.

There is concern by clinical psychologists of the adoption of TFT as an unvalidated and pseudoscientific therapy by government bodies and the public at large.[6] The British National Health Service is adopting the use of TFT into the service from 2007 as a Complementary and Alternative practice.

An List Of: Talking Therapies/Counselling For Mental Health/Depression: Transpersonal Psychology: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transpersonal_psychology

Transpersonal Psychology is a school of psychology that studies the transpersonal, the transcendent or spiritual aspects of the human mind.

The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology describes transpersonal psychology as \"the study of humanity’s highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding, and realization of unitive, spiritual, and transcendent states of consciousness\" (Lajoie and Shapiro, 1992:91).

Issues considered in transpersonal psychology include spiritual self-development, peak experiences, mystical experiences, systemic trance and other metaphysical experiences of living.

Transpersonal psychologists see the school as a companion to other schools of psychology that include psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and humanistic psychology.

Transpersonal psychology attempts to unify modern psychology theory with frameworks from different forms of mysticism.

These vary greatly depending on the origin but include religious conversion, altered states of consciousness, trance and other spiritual practices.

Although Carl Jung and others have explored aspects of the spiritual and transpersonal in their work, transpersonal psychology for the most part has been overlooked by psychologists who are focused on the personal and developmental aspects of the human psyche (Cowley & Derezotes, 1994; Miller, 1998).

An List Of: Talking Therapies/Counselling For Mental Health/Depression: Twelve-Step Program: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve-step_program

A Twelve-Step Program is a set of guiding principles for recovery from addictive, compulsive, or other behavioral problems, originally developed by the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) for recovery from alcoholism.

The Twelve Steps were originally published in the first edition of Alcoholics Anonymous (\"The Big Book\") in 1939; more than 25 million copies have been printed in many languages.[2]

This method has been adapted as the foundation of other twelve-step programs such as Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Co-Dependents Anonymous and Emotions Anonymous.

As summarized by the American Psychological Association, working the Twelve Steps involves the following.[1]

*admitting that one cannot control one's addiction or compulsion;

*recognizing a greater power that can give strength;

*examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);

*making amends for these errors;

*learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;

*helping others that suffer from the same addictions or compulsions.
