Why Epistema? The first reason for choosing this name was the representation of our primary values. Namely, Epistema originate from ancient greek word episteme, which means knowledge. Knowledge really is power, as the saying says, and this power include also knowledge which we get together with the client about himself. When we cross that bridge and get “justified truthful believing” (definition of knowledge), a lot of good things are possible for our client. The second reason for this choice is the promotion of a new approach in psychotherapy, founded on truth and knowledge, whose name is Epistemological psychotherapy. Finally, concerning that besides medical, we also use knowledge from other fields – philosophy, psychology, sociology, theology – to get a more comprehensive view of client problems, that was an additional motive to emphasize the importance of knowledge in our work.
House of mental health Epistema provides services in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy.
Our leading idea is understanding psychiatry and psychotherapy in a wider framework than medical. We are not considering our clients as narrow, as the medical model does: complex symptoms which lead to a 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 the only medical specialty but becomes more complex – area which includes psychology, philosophy, sociology, theology.
Considering all these fields make it possible better understanding of human nature in general, as well as a more satisfying understanding of our client in his construct of himself and the world. According to that view, we create an individual plan of treatment to solve a concrete problem that bothers 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 the client problems, yet we are trying to go further, to find a healthier way for living his life, to actualize his potentials.
Considering all that we have said, we believe that we have no essentially tabu themes to discuss, as long as they are in the best interests of our clients. Practically, that means that we are open to every possibility to get understanding and helping our clients.
