Our clinical activities:
DIAGNOSIS and PROGNOSIS for adults and children with emotional, behavioral or cognitive problems. When the child presents problems, we use various tests during the diagnostic process and involve the family – above all the parents – in the observation procedures and in the collection of other data necessary for the formulation of the diagnosis. When the diagnosis is for an adult, we involve the family only if directly involved in the problem.

DIAGNOSTIC CONSULTATIONS for colleagues who face atypical psychopathologies and complex diagnoses. We agree the consultation format with the colleague in question. The consultation usually consists of a diagnostic meeting with the clients presenting the problem (individual, couple or family) in the presence of the colleague in charge of the clinical case or a supervision with the colleague on the basis of the reported data.
INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPIES. They are the treatment of choice for adults whose problems do not directly and explicitly involve other family members.
COUPLE PSYCHOTHERAPIES. They are the preferential treatment for couple conflicts. They may also be appropriate, for an individual’s problem, when the other partner is involved or appears to be a resource for the therapeutic process.
FAMILY PSYCHOTHERAPIES. They are the preferential treatment when the patient is a child or teenager, when the problem involves family conflict or, when the patient, even if an adult, is not autonomous and presents a psychopathology that involves all or part of the family members.
ALTERNATE PSYCHOTHERAPY PATHS where the initial consultation is carried out with the whole family or with part of it, while the main therapeutic path is carried out only with the client who has the problem. Family members can be involved in the individual path at specific times and for defined questions. The decision to conclude the therapy normally involves the participation of the family. This kind of therapy is especially recommended for adolescents or young adults or when the family is strongly involved in the problem.
CONSULTATIONS FOR IMPASSE DURING THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS. They are aimed at colleagues who find themselves at an impasse during an individual, family or couple treatment. The type of consultation is agreed with the colleagues according to the specificity of the clinical case.
INDIVIDUAL, GROUP or TEAM SUPERVISIONS. We also supervise colleagues via Skype
