The therapeutic process refers to the application of a therapeutic treatment.
Therapeutic treatment differs between mental health professionals.
There are believed to be many psychological approaches designed to provide help with emotional hardship.
All licensed mental health practitioners are expected to practice from some type of established, recognizable theoretical perspective.
Cornwall Counseling practices ONLY Rational Emotive Behavior therapy and Emotional Intelligence theory.
Your counselor will follow ONLY this model of mental/emotional healthcare.
If at any time you believe you are not well–matched to this model, please make that known to your therapist. Your therapist will help identify a therapeutic strategy that may work better for you.
Some Basic Information on Emotional Intelligence
- Emotional intelligence theory seeks to help build skills as a means of managing emotional challenges. Emotional intelligence seeks to establish a truth, fact-based system of managing emotional challenges. Emotional Intelligence theory emphasizes skill-building and problem-solving.
- Emotional Intelligence theory does not emphasize discussions of the past or retelling personal history, as a means of managing the issues we face at the moment. (It is believed that the issues we face at the moment are in the moment and cannot be better understood by reviving memories of events from the past. It is believed that there is nothing hidden in your memory that psychotherapy can meaningfully discover.)
- Everything you will use to resolve your emotional issues is in the here-and-now. We may revisit the past from time to time.We are not encouraged to relive the past.
- It is believed that our thoughts of the past and the future cannot be managed if they are rigorous, stern, unrelenting, unremitting, stubborn, obstinate, intractable, obdurate, or undeviating. Fixed thinking is believed to prevent emotional optimal management.
- Emotional Intelligence theory uses an educational model. Therapy is much like taking a class. The client is much like a student. The therapist is the expert teacher.
- Emotional Intelligence theory is a biopsychosocial model for providing healthcare. Emphasis is placed on the mind and the body as the main source for achieving and managing emotional wellness. Discussions of human anatomy are likely in the learning portion of emotional intelligence training. Brain anatomy is a common topic. Braun function, hormones, and neurotransmitters will enter the discussion.
Emotional Intelligence theory is influenced by:
- Stoic philosophy
- Rational Emotive Behavioral (REBT) theory
- Social learning theory
- Improved mind and body awareness
- Selfcare as a primary activity for managing emotional expression
- Brain operations
- Whole Person / Mind-Body operations
- The influence of neurotransmitter and hormones on emotional expression
