  10. 10. Facts<br />Basically the effect of therapy can be divided into three dimensions: <br />Fulfillment of the goal measured via <br />your own internal experience and<br />the feedback you receive from others. <br />Evidence<br />NKK Dec. 2010<br />
  11. 11. Facts<br />Many thinks that therapy is done as S. Freud did it, this is mainly wrong. It is not about interpreting your child hood, It is about your present life and sometimes how patterns from the past impacts the present.<br />Evidence<br />NKK Dec. 2010<br />
  12. 12. Facts<br />Words do have real power and added with the audio and visible signals, they are the total communication that encapsulate emotions, body reactions and thoughts which is the human dimension in all aspects of life and therefore also important in therapy <br />Evidence<br />NKK Dec. 2010<br />
  13. 13. Facts<br />Therapy is a safe context to explore what sometimes is perceived as e.g. dangerous bodily reactions or thoughts. Therapists often has long education and receives supervision and know what their limits are. <br />Evidence<br />NKK Dec. 2010<br />
  14. 14. Facts<br />The waste majority of people going into the therapy are characterized by having a healthy self support. It is people with normal jobs, families and friends.

  15. 15. Facts<br />Going to therapy is a sign of strength. It actually takes courage to move against the current of myths. Gaining insight into own patterns, emotions, senses etc. builds awareness, understanding and thereby increased coping and self support Only if you know and work with you self can you be truly strong.<br />Evidence<br />
  16. 16. Facts<br />The ROI is significant. E.g. a manager is characterized by his colleges, subordinates and family to turn angry very fast. Employees and colleges do not approach him if they can avoid it. In the family they do all they can to please him in order to avoid the anger. After 10 sessions of therapy his has discovered the root cause of his anger and found adaptive ways to manage his anger. Employees, colleges and family unanimously gives positive feedback; the old behavior is gone.<br />ROI only calculated for the business setting<br /><ul><li>10 Sessions = 10 x 150$
  17. 17. 2 Employees waste 6 hours each a week (internal time rate 90$)
  18. 18. 3 Colleges waste 2 hours each a week (internal time rate 100$)</li></ul>((2px6h)x90$)+(3px2h)x100$)- 1500$)<br />=<br />12%<br /> x 100<br />1500$<br />Break even would be after 17 weeks. If therapy had no impact the first 5 weeks and 50% impact the next 5 weeks and from the on full impact. <br />Pre history of cost due to anger not taken into account and managers salary during absence for therapy not included. <br />Comment:<br />The time rate is low if we are talking knowledge workers. <br />The waste time of 6 hours per week of an approximate 48 hour work week is 1/8 of the week is realistic if they need to work close together with the manager.<br />The internal time rates are comparable to what several businesses have. <br />Of course numbers can all ways be fixed to present the right value, I have tried to be fair, please give input if it is wrong.<br />The family-ROI has not been estimated also related effect on the employees and colleges into their context has not been taken into consideration. <br />Evidence<br />NKK Dec. 2010<br />
  19. 19. Facts<br />A stranger that you find sympathetic is an opportunity to get new perspectives on issues that seems rigid or unsolvable; it is a opportunity to change your automatic downloading. Remember that therapist works with legal and ethical codes and what you say and do stays between you and the therapist<br />Evidence<br />NKK Dec. 2010<br />
