Ketamine, a medication originally developed as an anesthetic drug, is now being used to address treatment-resistant depression. Ketamine and Esketamine treatments are not covered by Alberta Health at this time but may be covered by insurance plans. Call Manor Clinic for more information.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories.
Narrative therapy is a non-blaming, compassionate approach to psychiatric treatment. It focuses on people as experts in their own lives. It regards issues as distinct from individuals and considers that people possess a wide range of skills, competences, beliefs, values, commitments, and talents that will help them modify their connection with problems in their life.
