A myriad of research studies have shown that a right combination of medication and therapy bring best treatment outcomes; symptoms remission, life satisfaction, stress reduction, sense of personal agency. While medication helps to control your psychiatric symptoms therapy focuses on you as a whole person helping you to develop resilience, connect with your potential and make a change. Our clinicians practice progressive, state of the art forms of therapy that are intensive, patient-centered and have distinct transformative effects.
Here at the Bipolar Center we recognize and honor the potential for health, love and support inherent in family bonds. With the help of Family Therapy we repair and activate this potential, directing the family’s emotional resources to healing and harmony. When the family’s dynamics are set right the relapses are weathered or prevented with increased ease.
Couple’s therapy is best suited to address the distress that couples are experiencing because of bipolar related or separate issues such as frequent fights, stressful life events, infidelity, or parenting issues. Partners frequently find themselves in recurring negative cycles that lead to escalating arguments or emotional distance. Our clinicians practice Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples (EFT) (probably add a link here to ICEFT and NYCEFT for credibility) which is recognized worldwide and is focused, accelerated and practical. Working in the here and now with the therapist, partners learn and practice relating to each other in new ways which extend to their relationship outside of the therapy.
