Our Process

Through our process, we can help you or your organization find balance between health, safety, and overall well-being.

Psychotherapy

At Salus, we believe that the therapeutic process begins with a personal acknowledgment that one no longer wishes to continue existing in their current state. Often times arriving at this conclusion is a result of continued disappointment, distress, and pain. The realization that change is needed may result in anxiety and/or fear. The notion of altering thoughts, behaviors, and relational patterns to improve one’s circumstances can seem overwhelming. However, there often comes a pivotal point where a person decides that embarking down an unknown path is better than continuing to live in their current state.

Many people find that therapy can be a deeply personal and rewarding experience. While it may not always be the most comfortable process, our work together will focus on relieving emotional pain by identifying and changing self-defeating patterns of thought, behavior, and relationship. This path toward change and growth can lead to a transformed sense of health, safety, and well-being.

Effective Leadership

Emphasis on development of qualities that facilitate outstanding leadership.  Results-oriented leadership encompasses:

Avoiding Burnout

Employee Self-Care and Avoiding Burnout

Employee burnout is a prolonged response to chronic emotional and interpersonal stress. It consists of three components: exhaustion, depersonalization (disengagement/detachment), and diminished self-efficacy in the workplace.

Provide education for your employees on how to effectively:

  • Engage in appropriate physical and psychological care (i.e., sleeping, eating healthy, exercising, proactive medical care, spending time with friends/family, pursuing personal interests, and making time for self-reflection).
  • Balance the perpetual demands of a work schedule and personal life
  • Establish and maintain professional boundaries

Cultural Competency

Cultural Competency in the Workplace

Instilling a sense of value in individual and group cultural differences is essential to achieving organizational goals. Providing opportunities for employees to develop a sense of cultural competence serves to strengthen not only your workforce, but also the products and services you provide.

Components of this training include:

  • Understanding the major differences in communication and behavior among target cultural groups.
  • Promotion of tolerance (defined as recognition and respect for the opinions, practices and behavior of others).
  • Examination of the impact of streotypes and biases, on perception, thoughts, feelings and behavior in the workplace.
  • Examining intrapersonal awareness of employees’ own cultural background
  • Development of cross-cultural collaboration and decision-making skills

This course can be uniquely tailored to meet the needs of your group, company, or organization.
