Healing Burnout (2)

Burnout can have a devastating effect on individual well-being and on a society as whole. Unfortunately, burnout develops gradually and most individuals suffering from it do not realize they have it until their job or relationship are in danger. Fears can make it difficult for an individual to seek the help that is often desperately needed.

Healing burnout consists of straight forward steps, which are also described in the author’s works on communication-focused therapy (CFT). The focus is on finding relevance and meaning again in various areas in life and in reconnecting emotionally and cognitively. Awareness of internal and external communication patterns is important to initiate the change in them which improves the interactions one has with the world and oneself.

Communication-Focused Therapy (CFT) is a psychotherapy developed by the author, which can be applied to several mental health conditions, including attention deficit disorder (ADHD). The focus is on the internal and external communication patterns the patient uses and on his or her basic parameters, the values, needs and aspirations.

The Dreams We Have (2)

Our dreams are what moves us forward in life. Imagining what one day might be is highly motivating and an importing testing ground for current decisions. Imagination can provide the direction and the motivation for change. Fears, however, can reduce the flexibility and openness which are required to fulfill these aspirations of the future. These are fears which are basically maladaptive. Better emotional and cognitive connectedness with oneself and better communication with the outside world can help to overcome these fears, Communication-focused therapy is one of the approaches used to improve internal and external communication.

Psychotherapeutic Technique A Brief Overview (6)

When patients come to see a therapist, they often have a long list of things that do not work for them in their lives. It is easy to overlook that one of the hardest steps towards health has been taken, stepping into the office of a therapist. Psychotherapeutic Technique is then largely about helping the patient find his or her path and to have the courage to follow it. Empathy, common sense, and a good dose of optimism are helpful in this line of work, as is thinking about what is happening and has happened in the life of the patient, how they relate to themselves and the world, and that in the end everything should make sense to the head and to the heart.
