What is Sociotherapy?
The need for a more holistic approach to social and personal problems resulted in the relatively new applied field of Sociotherapy. As a subfield of Sociology and Social Work, Sociotherapy enjoys a long and distinguished research tradition based on the scientific findings of its mother disciplines. Sociotherapy is about understanding the individual’s life as an integral part of both the social and physical environment. It is about finding a systemic solution to common issues faced in daily life. An example of this is Sociotherapy’s approach to family and couple’s therapy.
More than an individual’s happiness needs to be taken into consideration in order to achieve a healthy couple life and in order to construct and maintain a content and functional family. Thus Sociotherapy provides the client with a more complete understanding of their place in the world as well as useful recommendations as to how he or she can adapt in order to thrive and succeed. Sociotherapy’s effectiveness can be experienced much earlier than traditional psychological approaches with the added benefit of improving not only the individual client’s life but also those of the people surrounding them. In summary, Sociotherapy can be used to deal with a wide variety of issues including but not limited to: problems at work, family conflict, adapting to a new environment, relationship issues, career challenges, inter alia.
Credentialing of Sociotherapists: In the United States Sociotherapists are required to hold at least a bachelor’s degree in one of the Social Sciences (Sociology, Social Work, Political Science, etc) from a regionally accredited university and at least one year of experience in the field. At Drs. von Feigenblatt and Associates our Sociotherapist, Dr. Otto F. von Feigenblatt, holds three degrees in the Social Sciences including a Ph.D. and has accumulated years of experience dealing with individual, community, and organizational issues. He has also written several articles dealing with issues of reconciliation, forgiveness, and conflict.
