CPP (Child Parent Psychotherapy) is an evidence based treatment that addresses trauma and attachment in children ages 0-5. The purpose of CPP is to strengthen the relationship between a parent/caregiver and their child in order to alleviate mental health symptoms and improve social development. This treatment approach is often used to rebuild relationships that have been negatively impacted by domestic violence, substance abuse or neglect. As the parent, CPP helps you to learn ways to establish trust and safety with your child that was previously missing or disrupted. This foundation allows you and your child to process and resolve shared trauma.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is about accepting that sometimes things are rough, that there may be unchanging, or sloooooowly changing situations we are dealt in this life and sometimes, we are asked to “accept” it, or tolerate it. Acceptance doesn’t always mean we LIKE what we are dealing with. It may mean that for now at least, we are accepting something the way it is, or the way it feels. This may mean we “lean in” to our thoughts and feelings, maybe even welcome them in sometimes, rather than fighting them off or feeling guilty for them. The main idea of ACT is that avoidance doesn’t help. If we get wrapped up in “if/then” thinking or too stuck on “WHY” we may not get much solved, or we may just mentally leave the building every time it shows up in our lives and feel worse. The following steps make up the ACT philosophy:
A stands for “Accept your reactions and be present”.
C stands for “Choose a valued direction”.
T stands for “Take action”.
These steps are designed to help you develop more psychological flexibility, which is the ability to take several ideas into considerations, look at new perspectives, and learn new ideas. There are many emotional struggles, such as anxiety, depression, and OCD for example, that can benefit from ACT and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). ACT can also be incredibly helpful when you are feeling unmotivated, or stuck, making life and behavioral changes, and in dealing with adjustment challenges.
