Integrative therapies - Intro to Psychology

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    So our second combined therapy, are the integrative therapies. And these are
  • 0:05 - 0:08
    eclectic. And by eclectic what we mean is that the therapist can use any
  • 0:08 - 0:13
    technique he or she feels is best for the situation. So for example, in
  • 0:13 - 0:18
    treating post traumatic stress disorder, sometimes we use prolonged exposure
  • 0:18 - 0:24
    therapy. And prolonged exposure therapy is a combination of cognitive
  • 0:24 - 0:29
    behavioral therapy and systematic desensitization and relaxation therapy. So
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    the idea here is that the person thinks about, is exposed to the trauma in
  • 0:33 - 0:37
    their, in their minds, they imagine it, but at the same time, they also are
  • 0:37 - 0:44
    relaxed and have to stay relaxed. So, if that happens, they become desensitized
  • 0:44 - 0:50
    to the trauma and it no longer bothers them. Now sometimes, in fact, drugs
  • 0:50 - 0:54
    might also be added to this combination to help treat the anxiety and help with
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    the relaxation.
