Core Values of CMI™
Critical Memory Integration, or CMI™, is based on a carefully crafted set of Core Values that have guided the creation of this new therapeutic system. We believe these values will resonate with change-makers in the mental health community and inspire those to join us on the leading edge of mental health care. Together, we can renew a focus on mental wellness and see lives rebuilt and restored.
Who Can Benefit from CMI™ Training
Designed for Clinicians by Clinicians.
Critical Memory Integration (CMI™) is designed for and has been implemented by mental health clinicians, including counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. CMI™ is structured to place the individual’s presenting and emerging concerns at the center of the therapeutic endeavor. As a result, clients feel heard and validated, and therapists can fill the role of empathic witness who is a partner in their healing journey and values their experience.
CMI™ was designed to be used with individuals who present with diagnoses of anxiety, depression, stressor- and trauma-related disorders, eating disorders, problems in relationships, and personality disorders.
