CBT emphasizes the importance of building effective skills for coping with stress, solving problems, and managing difficult emotions. CBT at Joon Care is delivered in a personalized, modular manner, so that each client has a unique treatment plan that identifies their problem areas and builds new skills that  will help them make the changes they want.

A key component of CBT is skills practice so that what you work on in live therapy sessions can be put to practice in your daily life. Individual therapy sessions at Joon are enhanced by skills practice on the Joon mobile app.

All therapy at Joon Care is evidence-based, skills-focused, and personalized to each client. In addition to drawing from CBT skills, Joon therapists may utilize skills or approaches from the following evidence-based best practices to customize a treatment approach for each client’s unique needs: 

  1. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT helps clients manage intense negative emotions and change problematic behavior patterns. DBT skills can be useful for clients with mood disorders, personality disorders, self-injury, or suicidality.
  2. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT is a form of behavior therapy that focuses on helping clients learn to accept negative emotions as a step to moving forward with important life changes. ACT techniques can be especially useful for teens with anxiety, PTSD, grief, and depression.
  3. Motivational Interviewing (MI): MI is a non-confrontational therapy style that helps people resolve ambivalence and build motivation for change. It can be a great tool for building rapport early in therapy and developing motivation to change problem behaviors.
  4. Mindfulness: Mindfulness is the practice of directing attention to the present moment in a nonjudgmental way. Mindfulness is often incorporated into CBT and other evidence-based practices as a highly effective tool in reducing rumination and worry and promoting relaxation.
