General overview
IMG 20140725 184120
Psy + Onlus supports the right to inclusion of people with special needs. In past years we have had the opportunity to confirm, through extensive research and observations, the well-known iatrogenic effect of hospitalization: long-term hospitalizations, despite improvements in clinical and organizational practices, negatively affect the development opportunities of young people and bring to a progressive involution in adults. With "Special needs" we refer to the needs that derive from strongly disabling conditions such as infantile cerebral palsy, autism, encephalopathies: these patients should be supported through complex multidisciplinary interventions, managed by adequately trained and supervised teams, able to program and provide support and care activities both at home and outside, in close collaboration and contact with family members.

PsyPlus ETS Clinical Psychological Counseling Center

The Clinical Counseling Center supervised by PsyPlus ETS was created with the aim of offering professional services in the field of psychology, psychotherapy and psychiatry, at low cost.After an analysis of the contexts of prevention and promotion of psychological well-being in the area, we considered it useful and necessary to set up a multidisciplinary team of professionals with previous experience in the public and private sectors in order to offer specialist consultancy at low costs for anyone who needs it. 

To date, the request for access to psychological "cures" is only partially satisfied due to the few resources available to local services. The offer of the private sector, on the other hand, although rich and varied, is not economically affordable for everyone. Offering a solidarity service, capable of guaranteeing highly professional services at reduced rates, is therefore the mission of the Clinical Psychological Consultancy Center.
Access to the service is by reservation, by calling the toll-free number 800.91.04.89

In addition to psychological support and psychotherapy services, the clinical center offers the possibility of using professionals in the field of:
  • psychodiagnostics (Assessment of attitudes, resources, personalities and pathological manifestations)
  • expert psychology (Partial and Office Technical Consultancy)
  • psychiatry (Medical-psychological evaluation, monitoring of health conditions, drug therapies)
The team of the Clinical Psychological Counseling Center is made up of therapists who come from different training paths and who have gained significant experience in heterogeneous areas of the subject. Psy + Onlus carries out a supervisory function of the team, promoting the implementation of good practices and the integration of various approaches, also through experiences of continuous training of therapists.

Migrants and resilience: the art of navigating streams

Londa Hokusai PsyOnlus Blog

Psychoanalyst Cyrulnik Boris defines the Resilience like "the art of navigating streams", a difficult and demanding but not solitary navigation because it is related to the external environment.

In psychology, the Resilience it is configured as a process of mutation that allows hostilities to be transformed into opportunities for renewal and to structure alternative paths, avoiding or canceling those that have become impracticable and enemy.
