Since the earliest days of The Ecumenical Center, a substantial part of our work has focused on clinical evaluations and treatments. And in the past several years, this trend has become even more significant.
We’re set up to diagnose and treat clinical cases
We have long had the specialized facilities and skilled staff necessary to clinically evaluate and treat mental and emotional health issues. These capabilities are further enhanced by our Medical Advisory Board, whose job is to review and assure proper disposition of all cases.
We also have the proven capabilities and credentials
We offer a wide range of well-recognized therapies and programs to provide needed treatment. These include:
This is a specialty we helped pioneer – an innovative, researched, computer-based technique that’s been adopted by healthcare professionals around the world. It has been found effective in helping to remediate:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Traumatic Brain Injury
EMDR – eye movement desensitization and reprocessing
We were also early users of this psychotherapy technique, and have had positive results in cases of post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as other trauma cases in both adults and children. Its availability is especially important as The Center gears up to increase its services to active and retired military personnel and their families.
Our highly experienced psychologists and other mental health practitioners have proven their skills in the exhaustive multi-step process typically required for proper diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.
Play therapy and other specialties for children
Sometimes, very bad things happen to the most vulnerable members of our society, and it is our goal to find solutions that truly make a difference. Play therapy can have quite positive results, helping children work through social, emotional and behavioral difficulties, regardless of culture, gender, ability or age. Parents often report a decrease in their own stress, which can lead to a calmer, happier family environment.
Art therapy for clients of all ages
Not every canvas will be the Mona Lisa, and not every lump of clay will be Michelangelo’s David. But the creative process involved in such expression can help people resolve issues, manage behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness.
