Rational emotive behaviour therapists aim to teach their clients how to separate the evaluation of their behaviours from the evaluation of themselves and to accept themselves despite their imperfections. Rational emotive behaviour therapists goal is to assist clients in the process of achieving unconditional self-acceptance and unconditional other acceptance, and to see how these are interrelated (to accept yourself and to accept others), (Corey, 2014). One of the many rational emotive behaviour therapy goals is to also teach the clients how to change their dysfunctional emotions and behaviours into healthy and good emotions and
According to our book behavior modification is a treatment approach which is focused on changing people’s (and animal’s) behavior through a systematic program based on the learning principles of classical conditioning, operant conditioning, or observational learning. I believe that Behavior Modification should be used in society to shape the behavior of others, since it can help those with psychological needs to look after themselves and rely less on others for basic needs. And since, behavior modification is used to treat different mental disorders such as ADHD, enuresis, and OSD and many others, it can help not only people with mental disorders but also with their families deal with these people in order to improve their home environment.
Thank you for the your very informative discussion, I found the description on the seventh variable really interesting. How the progression of ones behavior can effect the reassurance of their significant other. Our behaviors are capable of effecting the way our significant others view the partner and how society views your behavior. This course really challenges some of my thoughts as well as help me developed a more in depth knowledge of the behavioral analysis field . The ability to prioritize target behaviors enables behavior analysts, to measure behaviors from a broad spectrum without encountering the behavior.
I agree with you that the Cognitive Behavioral Frame of Reference and the Model of Human Occupation (MOHO) approach are both excellent approaches to guide your wellness program. I used both of these approaches with my wellness program for adults with Schizophrenia or bipolar. I like how the Cognitive Behaviorial Frame of Reference encourage new behaviors by shaping, repetition, and reinforcement. I also like how MOHO looks at he individual as a whole. I believe by assisting the individual to identify triggers that caused their stress and anxiety is an excellent idea with your target population.
(Strengths and weaknesses of using the model (s in that setting). The therapeutic community model is very useful because it is a long term intensive approach, is holistic and good. The strengths of using this model in the treatment centre are, it allows accountability since at the Piparo Empowerment Centre when an individual/s of the centre confronts a member about an issue/their behavior, not only are they supposed to be polite in their approach but the individual being confronted is supposed to take the criticism respectfully and try to fix/change their issue/behvaiour. The TC (therapeutic community) model also allows everyone to work together to help each other.
While OCD and PTSD share some characteristics, they have a number of differences and therefore their treatments have unique features to address these differences. Imaginal exposure therapy is often employed in treating individuals with PTSD; patients expose details of the trauma and their emotions associated with it, working through them systematically (Monson et al., 2007). In order to establish imaginal exposure effectively, therapists must encourage their clients to create a description of the traumatic experience they endured. The therapists then works to correct their negative assumptions regarding the incident, varying thoughts of self-blame to more constructive thoughts. In comparison, treatment for OCD may involve prescription drugs,
SFT or SFBT, as it is respectively called, has become one of the leading approaches in treating clients across a vast slate of institutions ranging from education to criminal justice. It is this form of therapy that allows the goals to become clear for the client and clarity is intentionally focused towards the desired outcome for the quality of life to become better in every aspect. The flexibility of this particular range of therapy ascribes to the fact of client input that yields the space for them to express even at a minimal state ways in which they desire to change their life for the better. It takes into account the most basic level of initiative put forward to engage them in an active process that yields a significant impact towards a total life change. This method of therapy takes into account the nature of dialogue via conversation that goes into developing the client’s perspective towards obtaining the desired results that they seek to
By adopting strength perspective, the value of empowerment is achieved. Also, since different clients have their different ways of controlling their problem and different exceptions, and the solutions developed using this therapy are based on them, every client will have their own way to cope with their problems, even when their problems are similar. This perfectly shows that there is no universal
Rationale of MET: Objective: The objective of the Motivational Enhancement Therapy is to modify the harmful use of drugs. Goal: Each client needs to set their own goal rather than getting imposed by an absolute goal through MET.
Through this process we form ideas about the behavior of others and then possibly adopt this behavior ourselves. Also on a Personal Control social cognitive theorists emphasize that we can regulate and control our own behavior, despite our changing environment (Bandura, 2006: Mischel
