Sunshine Coast Health Centre: Philosophy of Treatment

While many people are familiar with the popular "12 Step" methodology of treating substance abuse, Sunshine Coast uses the methodology of Viktor Frankl, commonly called 'Meaning Therapy' as developed by psychologist Paul Wong. Dr. Wong was heavily influenced by Viktor Frankl and used personal meaning as a way to organize different therapies such as existential psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, narrative therapy, and positive psychology into a unified therapy approach. Therefore, persons who are selected to participate at the Centre will be exposed to this exciting treatment methodology as they work on completing the education requirements for them to become nurses, physicians, and/or licensed therapists.
