Why Epistema? First reason for choosing this name was representation of our primary values. Namely, Epistema originate from ancient greek word episteme, which means knowledge. Knowledge really is power, as the saying say, and this power include also knowledge which we get together with client about himself. When we cross that bridge, and get “justified truthful believing” (definition of knowledge), lot of good things is possible for our client. Second reason for this choice is promotion of new approach in psychotherapy, founded on truth and knowledge, whose name is Epistemological psychotherapy. Finally, concerning that beside medical, we also use knowledge from other fields – philosophy, psychology, sociology, theology – to get more comprehensive view od client problem, that was additional motive to emphasis importance of knowledge in our work.
House of mental health Epistema provide services in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy.
Our leading idea is understanding psychiatry and psychotherapy in a more wider framework than medical. We are not considering our clients as narrow, as medical model do: complex of symptoms which lead to precise diagnostic category, and implicit treatment with standardized methods.
Instead of this approach we look at a man as an individual human being, with certain characteristics that we all share, but also recognizing differences which made us unique entity in this world. Respecting that individuality of each client, psychiatry can not be only medical specialty, but become more complex – area which include psychology, philosophy, sociology, theology.
Considering all this fields make it possible better understanding of human nature in general, as well as more satisfying understanding of our client in his construct of himself and the world. According to that view we create individual plan of treatment to solve concrete problem which bother our client, but not just that. Namely, each psychological problem is also a chance for the person to grow, to get knowledge about himself, to become more mature. That is why we are not satisfied only with resolving client problem, yet we are trying to go further, to find more healthier way for living his life, to actualize his potentials.
Considering all what we have said, we believe that we have no essentially tabu themes to discuss, as long as they are in a best interests of our clients. Practically, that means that we are open for every possibility to get understanding and helping our clients.
