Additional Orientations Used In Therapy
Mindfulness Based Therapy
In addition, Linda L. Baley uses mindfulness based therapy in her practice. She has discovered that many people can gain health and wellness through contemplative practices of both science and insight meditation. These practices focus attention on the present experience in a way that is non-judgmental. Mindfulness practice is ideal for creating a greater awareness of the unity of mind and body and recognizing ways that thoughts, feelings and behaviors can undermine emotional health.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Another important orientation used by Linda L. Baley is Solution Focused Brief Therapy. She supports clients in identifying times in their life when things matched more closely with the future they prefer. Differences and similarities between the two occasions are examined. Solutions develop when the therapist and client are able to develop the expectation of a useful and satisfactory change. By bringing small successes to awareness, clients are supported to repeat the preferred futures they have identified. With some clients this process is brief and works effectively.
