To be able to do this is important because it is one of the principal points for patient to remain in therapy (Guthrie,
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Student name: Course title: Instructor’s name: Date: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) refers to a psychotherapy treatment that is commonly administered to patients who exhibit signs of depression.

It is because that to him, it is a good point of departure when clients are feeling they are engaged. Hence, he can tie a discussion of what clients are feeling with how this is affecting their behavior and then later he can inquire about the

Research shows that the best way to challenge these stereotypes is through firsthand contact with people with experience of mental health problems.
Individuals with antisocial personality disorder are also unaware of how their actions affect others. So how does one go about treating individuals with this particular disorder? The truth behind this personality disorder is complex, and treatment is just as complex—but recently, a new set of guidelines are being produced by the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health which states that it will cover the prevention, treatment and management of this disorder. One of the key components of the treatment method of these guidelines are group-based cognitive and behavioral interventions that focus on reducing, offending, and other antisocial behavior that extends to those in the community (Duggan, 2009).

In the MMHS, this dehumanizing process has taken on new heights as shown by the increasing statistics on mental disorders. The WHO claims, as of 2001, 1 of 4 people suffer from mental disorders. Of the around 450 million people who are currently suffering, there are people whose feelings, thoughts, and emotions would not have been considered disorders several years ago. For instance, Conrad and Slodden(2013) state that there has been an increase in the diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and bipolar disorder. Along with increasing the number of diagnoses, this medicalization facilitates dehumanization in the MMHS.
