Alsana is strengthening its current therapeutic approach (which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)) with the addition of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) – a method proven effective in shame reduction and trauma treatment. CFT promotes mental and emotional healing by helping clients replace internalized shame and self-criticism with acceptance and self-compassion. It also aids in the cultivation of mood management and relational skills and is proven effective not only in the treatment of eating disorders but in treating common comorbidities such as anxiety and depression. Substantial resources have been invested organization-wide to support its seamless integration. “Alsana’s mission to expand access to holistic, transdiagnostic, and evidence-based eating disorder treatment is supported by our commitment to data-driven care and a culture that cultivates compassion, The Therapeutic Dimension works in concert with the Medical, Nutritional, Relational, and Movement Dimensions of the Adaptive Care Model, the blueprint for Alsana’s holistic, evidence-based approach to eating disorder care. It seeks to facilitate healing in all areas of clients’ lives and continues to achieve industry-leading outcomes.
