Dr Chrisian Conte's Yield Theory
For the treatment of Anger Issues
Developed in 1998 Dr. Conte's Yield Theory consists of seven components:
Elimination of Shame
Using these components the therapist is able to offer consistent and effective treatment to those who have been victims of violence or offenders of domestic violence as well as those suffering from uncontrollable or irrational anger. Often these issues result in legal involvement and family turmoil. Here at PA Professional Health Services we aim to help each client rebuild and repair over the course of several therapeutic and psycho-educational sessions.
Batterer's Intervention Program
The Batterer's Intervention Program is a court ordered 26 week psycho-education program. The program focuses on interupting, avoiding and ending violence and abuse and on the batterer's capacity to change. The program works in cooperation with the victim services and domestic violence programs as well as with other key agencies such as courts, prosecutors, law enforcement, and probation officers. The program also makes appropriate referrals as needed including to mental health professionals or inpatient substance abuse services.

This is a program that may be offered by your employer. The EAP will offer assessment, provide information, offer short term counseling, provide referrals and follow-up. The cost of the EAP is paid by your employer. Accessing the EAP may occur by a self referral, a recommendation of a colleague, or a mandatory referral by your supervisor. Regardless as to how you are referred, contact with the EAP is strictly confidential. No one has access to your information without your written consent.
As originated and developed by Francine Shapiro, PhD, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment utilizes bilateral stimulation to facilitate the rapid processing of the dysfunctional residue associated with traumatic life events to transform it into something useful. This dysfunctional information undergoes a change in form and meaning through incorporating insights and affects that are helpful, rather than hurtful to the client. This treatment modality is extremely helpful in alleviating the symptoms associated with PTSD, and trauma reactions.
