What is the content in elona therapy based on?

The content available to you in elona therapy is based on the procedure of cognitive behavioral therapy. For each mental disorder specific interventions have been developed in behavioral therapy based on numerous scientific studies. What we know today about the experience, behavior and treatment of people with depression and anxiety disorders thus forms the essential basis for the exercises in elona therapy.

Thus, on the one hand, elona therapy provides psychoeducational content about the underlying mental illness (depression, anxiety/panic disorders and somatoform disorders) and living with this illness (e.g. symptoms; comorbidities; models of development and maintenance; relationship between thoughts, emotions and behavior; behavioral analyses). Similarly, sufferers also gain access to exercises, methods, and techniques that extend outpatient psychotherapeutic treatment into the sufferer's daily life. For the treatment of depression, this includes established psychotherapeutic approaches such as behavioral activation (building and planning activities), cognitive restructuring (recognizing, dealing with, and changing automatic thoughts, cognitive distortions, and basic assumptions), emotion regulation (knowing, Managing and regulating emotions), Social Skills and Competencies (psychoeducation and behavioral training), Mindfulness & Acceptance (reflecting on personal values, accepting build-up of unwanted feelings and thoughts), and Relapse Prevention (recognizing early warning symptoms, crisis planning). For the depression module, the contents of relaxation (progressive muscle relaxation, imagination, mindfulness and meditation) are also suitable.

For the treatment of an anxiety/panic disorder, elona therapy also uses established approaches such as psychoeducation (knowledge transfer) on the nature of anxiety, disorder patterns, comorbidities, models of development and maintenance, behavioral analyses and self-observation, exposure procedures (knowledge transfer, preparation, implementation and debriefing), cognitive interventions, emotion regulation (knowledge transfer, handling and regulation of emotions), aspects from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for anxiety, and relapse prevention (recognition of early warning symptoms, crisis planning, handling relapses).
