A clinical intake and treatment planning session typically includes:
- Establishing rapport with the client
- Gathering information
- Assessing the client’s mental and emotional state
This includes setting goals, developing strategies to help the client reach their goals, and making a plan for follow-up and monitoring.
These treatment approaches include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps people identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and behaviors in order to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and OCD. The more frequently you work out your “CBT mental muscles” – the more rapidly you will see results and meet your treatment goals.
- Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) is a specialized form of CBT that focuses on gradually exposing the individual to the situations or objects that trigger the anxiety or obsessive thoughts. The goal is to help the individual learn to tolerate the distress associated with the triggering situation and eventually reduce the fear or obsession.
- Other treatment approaches that are often used in the treatment of anxiety and OCD include: mindfulness-based therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and supportive psychotherapy.
Referral management is an important part of ensuring that patients receive high quality medication management. It involves managing referrals from primary care providers, specialists, or other health care professionals, to ensure appropriate care. This may include coordinating with health care providers to determine the best course of treatment and referring patients to the most appropriate specialist or medication management expert.
Relapse prevention is an important component of long-term wellness planning and is a set of strategies and approaches that individuals can use to help them stay on track with their recovery goals.
These relapse prevention strategies may include:
- Identifying early warning signs of relapse
- Developing an action plan to manage stressors and triggers
- Developing new coping skills
- Engaging in self-care activities
- Finding social support.
Long-term wellness planning is a process of setting achievable goals and creating a plan to reach those objectives.
This long term wellness plan may include:
- Developing healthy habits
- Creating a support system
- Engaging in regular physical activity
- Managing stress.
Our team at Light on Anxiety will help ensure these plans go into place and create a support system for your wellness journey.
Scheduling ongoing wellness visits helps to maintain mental health gains by providing an opportunity for individuals to check in with their therapist during IOP. These visits can also provide an opportunity to review and adjust any existing treatment plans, medication, or introduce new strategies or treatments to further promote mental health.
