THERAPY AND THERAPEUTIC ACTIVITIES
CSPP deals with consultation and psychotherapy of individuals, couples and families.
The orientation of the therapeutic équipe is of systemic-relational kind. The therapeutic plan is developed on the basis of this model, as well as the équipe job, that is organized according to the above mentioned model, but also constantly coordinated and integrated in its different stages thanks to an incessant collaboration among the different professionals.
The systemic-relational orientation measures the psycho-emotional performance of the individual, beginning by focusing the attention on the relational environment in which the person was born and grew up, as the environment itself is considered an organizer of his or her intrapsychic performance. Another essential aspect is the system of significant relationships in which the individual is included, as relationships are considered an important requisite both of support and personal or domestic change. The personality performance is therefore considered as the result of the significant relationships that the person had during his or her life and the problems are seen as the result of relational experiences, not as features inherent to the individual.
The systemic-relational approach can be useful with people that think to have difficulties in specific relationships (couple, parents, working areas etc.). It can be particularly efficient when dealing with problems connected to childhood and/or adolescence. The psychotherapeutic job is therefore not purely focused on taking care of the symptom, but on looking after the relational situations that generated it.
In the systemic approach, the symptom is not considered the expression of individual problems, but the dysfunction of the entire relational system that expresses itself through the pain of a single person that is particularly sensitive or delicate.
The therapeutic intervention is based on a detailed knowledge of the personal, relational and domestic history of the person, and aims to find out the reasons of the distress and to start personal and relational changing processes, using the personal, relational and domestic resources that the person owns.
The different problems are faced together with the person that has them, in order to help him or her to understand the psychological origins of his or her suffering, looking at his or her personal and domestic history.
