What are Integrative Therapies?
The word ‘integrative’ in integrative therapies refers to creating a whole, cohesive treatment plan, and bringing together the cognitive, behavioral, and physiological systems within an individual. Integration suggests that the therapeutic elements are part of one combined approach to theory and practice.
