Cognitive dissonance is by definition the ¨state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs or attitudes (McLeod, Simply Psychology) which produces feelings of discomfort.” In order to dispel those feelings the brain leads a person to alter the thoughts, beliefs or attitudes that are in disagreement with the rest, restoring the brain to harmony. When we humans have a thought or commit an atrocity that goes against our morals or long standing beliefs we either apologize or justify the action, telling ourselves that the person we hurt deserved it and brought it upon themselves. We continue to search for justification until we no longer view ourselves as in the wrong. This mental capability has, in my opinion, been the leading agent in nationś wars and oppression against others. The most prominent being attempts to stamp out races because of their so called ¨inferior race/ heritage¨.
For cognitive techniques, I will use these following techniques: disputing irrational beliefs (identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts in a practical way e.g. challenging the likelihood and consequence of the feared event using questions like “How certain am I that I’d do something stupid?”), doing cognitive homework (make lists of my problems, look for their irrational beliefs, and dispute these beliefs) and changing one’s language (“musts,” “oughts,” and “shoulds” can be replaced by preferences). For emotive techniques, I will use these following techniques: rational emotive imagery (imagine myself thinking, feeling, and behaving exactly the way I would like to think, feel, and behave in real life), using humor and shame-attacking exercises (tell myself that it is not catastrophic if someone thinks I am foolish). And I will also use behavioral techniques by testing out my beliefs and gradually improving my situations using some procedures from behavior therapy
Trepal, Boie, and Kress (2012) examine the relational cultural theory (RCT) with evidence-based treatment to use as a prevention or individual counseling for clients dealing with eating disorders. Growth and connections with others are a part of RCT 's principle. According to RCT, people want to have real, meaningful connections in relationships. When clients don 't show connections, RCT views the eating disorder as the disconnection. Clients use the eating disorder as a strategy for disconnection; therefore, RCT explores the eating disorder as the disconnection to help clients gain self-awareness; in additions, to using relational images to improve connections in relationships and encourage the support clients need to overcome eating
