Center For Discovery Thousand Oaks practices mindful movement yoga therapy, art therapy and experiential therapy as well as exposure response therapy, dialectal behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Exposure response therapy (ERP) is a therapeutic technique that uses expressive tools and activities, such as role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts, music, guided imagery, or various forms of recreation to re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from past and recent relationships that usually relate to traumatic experiences. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy that has been proven useful in treating mood disorders and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
