Individual Therapy: Emotional Reaction

The goal of this therapy is to help people build more rational and constructive beliefs regarding the events that happen in their lives so that they can have healthier emotions and more functional behaviors.

The therapy starts from the idea that emotional disturbances are frequently caused not so much by the environmental situations themselves, but by the interpretation that the person makes of them. To do this, we work on changing the person's irrational thought patterns as they interfere with their normal well-being. Through the discussion or questioning of disturbing irrational beliefs, it is possible to provoke favorable changes in emotions and thanks to this, the resident can self-apply this same procedure in various situations.

To do this, I carry out psychological assessments of the residents and collaborate with the rest of the professionals to facilitate and improve people's quality of life.

In my daily tasks, my mission is to carry out psychological assessments of residents in order to review their Individualized Accompaniment Care Plan.

The Care Plan is completely personalized and adapted to each person based on their needs (physical, psychological, emotional), their tastes and preferences. It is reviewed every six months and requires prior preparation by each professional involved in the process.

Psychology professionals in nursing homes focus on assessing the cognitive, emotional and behavioral state of the elderly and on preparing the corresponding reports.
