Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
A very problem-focused and goal-directed therapy where distorted thinking and maladaptive behaviors are identified and worked on. It is an active intervention and so expects homework.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
A therapy that openly welcomes the dialectics of change and acceptance and works towards helping individuals integrate the two. It is based on mindfulness skills training to increase self-awareness, tolerate distress, regulate emotions and improve interpersonal skills. This therapy also involves homework or practice of skills.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
This therapy is based on Relational Frame theory and so emphasizes on the relationship between thoughts and language. It uses techniques like cognitive diffusion to help in ultimately increasing the psychological flexibility. Experiential avoidance is discouraged as a person is moved towards mindfulness and acceptance.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR has been recognized as one of the most effective trauma treatments. It works to access and process traumatic memories to an adaptive resolution.
EMDR works on 3 levels. It often starts with targeting dysfunctional groundwork with the aim of reaching adaptive information. Then the person is desensitized to current triggers. Further, future templates are included to help the adaptive process.

This aims at helping people be free from the grips of automatic thoughts, old tapes, and old habits. It's based on Jon Kabat Zinn's Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Program and teaches you to take control of your thoughts and emotions through self-awareness and meditation.
An important feature of it is to know the contents of your mind without identifying with it and, as such, promote conscious living in the present.
