In the midst of every difficulty there is an opportunity– ALBERT EINSTEIN
WHAT DOES THE PSYCHOLOGIST DO?
The psychologist in Imparole takes care of both the individual and the family.
In the case of psychological therapy with the individual, the psychologist in Imparole welcomes the discomfort that the person is experiencing at that moment through an attentive and participatory listening, accompanies him to understand his discomfort and to find new resources and new tools to improve his well-being and quality of life.
In the case of psychological therapy with the family, the psychologist can accept the discomfort presented by the family as a whole. This discomfort may be experienced by children or parents or both. For this reason, we propose a personalized diagnostic procedure on the single family aimed at identifying how to better help that specific family in difficulty.
WHICH INSTRUMENTS ARE USED IN THERAPY?
The privileged instrument of the psychologist is the clinical interview conducted according to personal characteristics and clinical training. Imparole’s staff includes a number of professionals who work both independently and in synergy to ensure that the treatment is more effective and that clinical objectives are achieved. There are psychologists both in the psychodynamic and systemic-relational area, as well as in the cognitive-behavioural area.
Each psychological path is preceded by a free interview in order to identify the need and consequently the professional and the most suitable path.
It is important to help the family because when a family member is in difficulty, the whole family often suffers.
There are situations in which the child and/or the adolescent is taken care of by proposing a personal psychological path for the minor and situations in which it is preferable to work indirectly with the parents. Or there are clinical situations in which both parents and children work together. No family is the same as any other and no treatment can be equal to another, as a tailor never sews two identical clothes.
HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK DOES THE PSYCHOLOGIST MEET THE PERSON?
In both types of therapies, meetings usually take place on a weekly basis in a cosy and reserved environment. Respect for privacy is guaranteed according to the professional code of conduct of the psychologists.
HOW CAN THE PARENT HELP THE CHILD EVERY DAY?
If you work mainly with the child or the teenager, you regularly involve your parents to take stock of the situation. Through such periodic interviews the parent can understand how best to support the psychologist’s work and work together to achieve the same goals.
In the event that a family is followed by different professionals, periodic teams among the professionals involved are necessary to share the progress of the therapeutic path: working together to work better.
HOW DOES THE PSYCHOLOGIST WORK WITH THE TEACHER?
When taking care of the discomfort of a child or teenager, the psychologist collaborates with the school in an active way, through interviews with teachers that can take place both at school and at Imparole. The psychological intervention wants to be a global intervention that involves the various environments of life of the child or young person, that is, it does not end or is not limited to meetings in the studio, to be increasingly configured as a symbolic network whose centre is constituted by the achievement of personal and family wellbeing.
