Integrated Health Care

Integrated health care is an approach that treats both mental and physical problems and disorders. It recognizes that a physical ailment requires treatment of the whole person body, mind, and spirit. Backed by science, studies show that stress management using cognitive-behavioral methods decrease symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, and pain as well as improves positive mood, memory, and quality of life. Stress Management is also beneficial as a prevention and intervention method for Postpartum Depression, ADD-ADHD, High BP, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Pain Relief, Migraines, Insomnia, and common symptoms including Nausea, Fatigue, and more. The benefits proven by research reduce medical and mental health symptoms, provide coping skills, and allow conditions the ability to improve and to become manageable.

Treatment Model

The treatment model is a combined CBT approach that employs relaxation, cognitive, and communication skills interventions (Interpersonal Skills).

What Is Assertiveness?

Have you ever been to a party and found yourself avoiding someone because you didn't know what to say? Have you ever realized, after the fact, that you had been unfairly criticized or taken advantage of? Are you hesitant to express your thoughts or opinions? Do you find dealing with authority figures difficult? These are examples of situations that involve assertive behavior. Assertiveness can be defined as communication in which one expresses oneself in a direct and honest manner in interpersonal situations, while simultaneously respecting the rights and dignity of others.

What Is Assertiveness Training?

Assertiveness training can be an effective treatment for certain conditions, such as depression, social anxiety, and problems resulting from unexpressed anger. Assertiveness training can also be useful for those who wish to improve their interpersonal skills and sense of self-respect.

Reasons for Assertiveness Training

Assertiveness training is based on the principle that we all have a right to express our thoughts, feelings, and needs to others, as long as we do so in a respectful way. When we don't feel like we can express ourselves openly, we may become depressed, anxious, or angry, and our sense of self-worth may suffer. Our relationships with other people are also likely to suffer because we may become resentful when they don't read our minds for what we are not assertive enough to be telling them. There are no hard-and-fast rules of what assertive behavior is; rather, it is specific to the particular time and situation. In other words, behavior that is appropriately assertive for one person in one situation may be either excessively passive or too aggressive for someone else in a different situation. Finally, assertiveness training is based on the idea that assertiveness is not inborn, but is a learned behavior. Although some people may seem to be more naturally assertive than others, anyone can learn to be more assertive.

Although these ideas may sound simple and straightforward, behaving assertively can sometimes be difficult for almost anyone, and is often impossible for some people. For this reason, assertiveness training focuses not only on talking about the importance of assertiveness, but also on learning assertive behaviors and practicing these behaviors with the help of a professional therapist.

What Is the Difference Between Assertiveness and Aggression?

People sometimes confuse assertiveness with aggression, believing that assertiveness training might make them pushy or inconsiderate of others. In fact, assertiveness can be thought of as a middle point between passivity and aggression. In interpersonal situations, passive behavior occurs when you focus on the needs and desires of another person, but ignore your own needs and wishes. In contrast, aggressive behavior occurs when you force your own needs on others. Source: ABCT
