Psychotherapeutic services are CNS’ second-most utilized service, following case management.  CNS is very proud of its wide range of psychotherapy programs, which are designed to reach solution-focused goals established by the consumer. Psychotherapy, which is led by Master’s prepared, state certified/licensed clinicians, is available in both group and individual settings.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the most common therapeutic intervention in the industry and is commonly referred to as “talk therapy.”  CBT has demonstrated effectiveness with a wide range of disorders, including depression, anxiety, grief and eating disorders.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based practice that provides a comprehensive therapy program based on the model developed by Dr. Marcia Linehan (Director of the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics at the University of Washington). The DBT Program at CNS treats individuals with severe emotion regulation problems who are often chronically suicidal, may engage in self-harm behaviors and who have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. DBT is currently the only treatment intervention proven effective for this disorder.

Moral Reconation Therapy is successfully used in prisons, jails and other detention facilities to help offenders with anti-social disorders gain empathic emotion and understand their victim’s pain.
