The last portion of the Freedom Treatment Center program utilizes moral recognition therapy to assist individuals in making sound decisions and clearly seeing right from wrong. There a several different courses completed during the moral recognition therapy to help capture every aspect of the individual’s life. While one is participating in this portion of the program, there will be some courses that are intertwined with both cognitive behavioral therapy and moral recognition therapy. The reason for this is because the two therapies work hand in hand with each other.
What is Moral Recognition Therapy?
This type of therapy is designed to create the following:
- Moral reasoning
- Sound decision making
When individuals have been living in denial, there are justifications made and manipulation of others or themselves, which leads to individuals having an altered way of thinking. This type of thinking can cause destructive behavior or damage in their lives over a prolonged period of time. The main goal of moral recognition therapy is to help individuals learn to make moral, ethical decisions by using past experiences and change the way that each individual looks at the world, as well as their own flaws.
