The Integrative Therapies Program has launched a number of studies to determine the efficacy of certain complementary modalities such as the use of milk thistle (a non-toxic herb) to help heal liver toxicity associated with chemotherapy, the role of antioxidants in combination with chemotherapy, and the effect of aromatherapy in relieving anxiety and nausea in patients undergoing bone marrow transplant. Integrative therapy is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. With an understanding of normal human development, an integrative therapist modifies standard treatments to fill in development gaps that affect each client in different ways. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.Integrative therapy is more inclusive of the client than traditional forms of therapy, where the client plays a less active role in treatment. Integrative psychotherapists consider the individual characteristics, preferences, needs, physical abilities, spiritual beliefs, and motivation level of their clients and use their professional judgment to decide the best approach to therapy for each client.
