THERAPY MODALITIES
Understanding the type of therapy your therapist utilizes to assist you is very important.  Below is information about different types of therapy methods available and the various therapy methods currently utilized by KB & Associates.

Family Based Treatment


(FBT) Is a home-based treatment approach that today remains the only treatment proven effective in controlled trials for Anorexia Nervosa in adolescents. FBT takes an agnostic view of cause of the eating disorder but instead places initial focus on re-feeding and full weight restoration to promote recovery.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


(CBT) Employs a framework based upon the cognitive triangle which builds an understanding of the relationship between a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The therapist works to identify negative thought patterns and behavior cycles while gaining positive coping skills.


Motivational Interviewing


A form of collaborative conversation for strengthening a person’s motivation and commitment to change. It is a person-centered counseling style for addressing the common problem of ambivalence about change by paying particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen an individual’s motivation for, and movement towards a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy 


(DBT) A skills-based therapy that focuses on distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotions regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. DBT has been shown to be effective treating Borderline Personality Disorder. As a whole, DBT is effective at helping people with overwhelming emotions. DBT assists people in learning how to manage their emotions by providing skills on how to manage stressful situations, remaining in the present moment, interacting and communicating with others, and helping people learn how to not act destructively or lose control.
