Core 12 Step adherence
Although most research has focused on adherence to medication, adherence also encompasses numerous health-related behaviours that extend beyond taking prescribed pharmaceuticals. The participants
at the WHO Adherence meeting in June 2001 (1) concluded that defining adherence as “the extent to
which the patient follows medical instructions” was a helpful starting point. However, the term “medical” was felt to be insufficient in describing the range of interventions used to treat chronic diseases.
Furthermore, the term “instructions” implies that the patient is a passive, acquiescent recipient of expert
advice as opposed to an active collaborator in the treatment process.
Dialectic behavioral therapy (dbt)
Cognitive behavioral therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a modern form of talking therapy that can help you change the way you think, process life’s events and consequentially behave.

Eye movement desensitization therapy emdr
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories (Shapiro, 1989a, 1989b). Shapiro’s (2001) Adaptive Information Processing model posits that EMDR therapy facilitates the accessing and processing of traumatic memories and other adverse life experience to bring these to an adaptive resolution. After successful treatment with EMDR therapy, affective distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced. During EMDR therapy the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus. Therapist directed lateral eye movements are the most commonly used external stimulus but a variety of other stimuli including hand-tapping and audio stimulation are often used (Shapiro, 1991).
Humans have used aromatherapy for thousands of years. Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt, and elsewhere incorporated aromatic plant components in resins, balms, and oils. These natural substances were used for medical and religious purposes. They were known to have both physical and psychological benefits.
Essential oils distillation is attributed to the Persians in the 10th century, though the practice may have been in use for a long time prior to this. Information about essential oil distillation was published in the 16th century in Germany. French physicians in the 19th century recognized the potential of essential oils in treating disease.
