From 1 Octobre 2018 onwards UNDE provides psychological assessment and treatment in mental healthcare for adults and the elderly.
The problems may include: anxiety, gloom or depression, experiences of loss or bereavement, post-traumatic stress disorder, difficulty with accepting (unexplained) health difficulties or disease, mild dependency from alcohol or other substances such as sleeping-drugs, adjustment to life events or to stage of life.
As much as possible UNDE will relate to your problems and your request for treatment.
UNDE works ‘eclectic’, that is to say that various ways and elements of psychological treatment can be used.
This includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT).
Questionnaires will be used to form a better picture of the problems.
It is also possible that you will be asked to work at home in a particular way with your problems, in light of your treatment goals.
It is important for me to give clients a framework for their problems, that’s why an explanation and psycho-education play in important role in treatment.
During the first interview we will speak in detail about your reasons for coming to UNDE and your request for treatment. This will form the diagnostics/assessment in the intake.
If the request for psychological help cannot be covered by the treatment options of UNDE it will be clear in the diagnostic intake. If the treatment cannot be handled by UNDE, other treatment will be advised for you.
Due to the size of the practice crisis-prone problems can not be accepted.
From 1 May 2019 onwards UNDE cooperates on indication with consult psychiatrist Constant Mouton (constantmouton.com). This means that long-term treatments can also be reimbursed by your (Dutch) health insurance policy.
