Therapy and training

Various disciplines within Veldzicht offer therapy. The living environment and the daily programme we provide form an integral part of the overall treatment. Therapy and training at Veldzicht are tailored to the needs of the individual patient.

We draw up an early warning plan together with each patient. This describes the signs that suggest the patient’s condition is deteriorating, as well as the actions that can be taken.
At Veldzicht we make use of psychoeducation in the form of Liberman modules, while Goldstein training is used to reinforce practical skills.

For patients with psychotic disorders the primary objective is to set their medication at an appropriate level. These disorders include schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder and drug-induced psychosis.

Within the areas of psychomotor therapy, art therapy and music we work on improving the patient’s self-image, accepting and dealing with boundaries, handling emotions and tolerating frustration. Emotion regulation and anger management training also has a part to play.

Psychotherapy involves working with themes, such as learning to accept your illness.

The Fenix addiction module and specific Liberman modules are used for patients suffering from an addiction.

Patients with personality disorders are given skills training and support with anger management. The main aim here is to make such patients aware that the disorder is causing them problems in their everyday lives. Specialist therapies combined with psychotherapy are often useful in such cases. We work using Schema Focused Therapy (Young), an approach that has proven results (Bernstein et al.).

Our transcultural care programmes are currently being developed.
