Many people have problems in living. Often these emotional troubles can sabotage the development of well-being, creating difficulties that undermine success in personal relationships, career achievement and general life-satisfaction, impeding fulfillment and happiness.
THE CRITERIA FOR EMOTIONAL MATURITY
According to Sigmund Freud, M.D., the criteria for emotional maturity indicates the ability to love and to work. To this, William C. Menninger, M.D., added:
- The ability to deal constructively with reality
- The capacity to adapt to change
- A relative freedom from symptoms that are produced by tensions and anxieties
- The capacity to find more satisfaction in giving than receiving
- The capacity to relate to other people in a consistent manner with mutual satisfaction and helpfulness
- The capacity to sublimate, to direct one’s instinctive hostile energy into creative and constructive outlets
- The capacity to love
If you, or someone you care about, does not meet the above criteria, it is time to reach out for help. Call The Psychology Center at (310) 275-1500. We can help.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Identifying symptoms and making a correct diagnosis are the first steps towards repair and the creation of emotional health. Believing successful treatment outcome depends on an accurate diagnosis and complete understanding of the problem to be treated, The Psychology Center has created an in-depth assessment process that includes an evaluation interview and complete psychological testing along with referrals for more intensive testing as needed.
Some of the most common problems treated at The Psychology Center are Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders and Substance Abuse Recovery. Marriage and Family Therapy, Career Counseling, Organizational Consulting and Executive Coaching are also offered. Excellent referrals to other professionals, child custody evaluators, in-patient facilities and community resources are provided as needed.
At The Psychology Center, every person, family or company is viewed as an individual entity, whose unique issues must be correctly assessed before a corrective treatment plan is devised. Thus, specific needs are identified and then addressed with the most appropriate therapeutic modality. Whether Solution-focused, Executive and Life Coaching, Business Consulting, Brief Psychodynamic or intense Analytic Therapy, our experienced therapists offer treatments supported by the research literature related to the specific diagnosis. In this way, we create the optimum in psychological healing, encouraging the development of emotional intelligence and mental health.
The Psychology Center, reflecting the most recent psychological research, understands that one approach does not fit all. Therefore, as each individual, family, couple and company has different problems and requirements, every treatment plan is tailored to meet the specific needs of that individual, couple, family or workplace situation.
At The Psychology Center, we start with an understanding of the complete patient, through an accurate assessment and diagnosis, then create the research-based treatment plan and the appropriate therapeutic modality.
