Experiential Therapy and Recovery

  1. 1. Experiential Therapy and Recovery
  2. 2. Common Rehabilitation Practices • Most traditional therapeutic approaches for drug and alcohol rehabilitation are based on intensive “talk therapy.” • However, acquiring the level of trust and candidness needed to build a solid rapport takes time and may not be possible within a brief recovery program. • Experiential therapy takes a whole other approach, bypassing this process entirely, and instead focusing on observing the patient in the way they behave and react in various circumstances.
  3. 3. The Experiential Therapy Difference • The basis of experiential therapy is to utilize more action, movement, and activity-based therapy sessions to gain insight into everyday behaviors, reactions, and responses. • This type of therapy expedites personal growth and recovery by: – Examining personal relationships – Identifying negative emotional triggers – Instigating catharsis – Initiating self-discovery – Promoting self-awareness
  4. 4. Evolution of Experiential Therapy • Developed in the 1970s, the purpose of experiential therapy is to identify and address veiled or suppressed issues with guided imagery, physical activities, and role playing. • The most vital component of experiential therapy is to find activities that can contribute to a healthy and productive lifestyle.
  5. 5. The Benefits • The experiences and activities provide therapists observational insight into the way patients handle situations, in an environment where the patients are not focused on the therapy itself. • Patients receive invaluable support under realistic circumstances, which they can easily translate to their daily lives. • Experiential therapy offers sober extracurricular activities to reinforce clean living.
