Generally, some form of CBT is combined with either relaxation training or biofeedback. Assessment Patients with chronic pain need to feel understood by those who are providing care to them. On the other hand, a therapist requires relevant and adequate information about the patient from a bio-psychosocial perspective to establish therapeutic goals.
Therapist are encouraged to share their reactions with genuine concern and empathy with their clients. Therapist model authentic behaviors themselves which encourages their clients to grow. Schneider mentions the importance that therapeutic presence when assisting clients to reconnect to their pain and make them aware of the opportunity to transform their pain. Existential therapy and PTSD should include 3
Occupational Therapy Model / Frame of Reference (FOR) There are several frames of references that occupational therapy utilizes. The frame of reference (FOR) gives the therapist guidelines to follow as interventions are conducted. Choosing a proper FOR is key for the best treatment approach for each unique patient.
Multimodal therapy is a systematic and comprehensive psychotherapeutic approach developed by Arnold Lazarus, a Clinical psychologist. While respecting the assumption that clinical practice should adhere firmly to the principles, procedures, and findings of psychology as an experimental science, the multimodal orientation transcends the behavioral tradition by adding unique assessment procedures and by dealing in great depth and detail with sensory, imagery, cognitive, and interpersonal factors and their interactive effects. A basic premise is that patients are usually troubled by a multitude of specific problems that should be dealt with by a broad range of specific methods (Corsini, R.J. & Wedding, D.,
The learning frame of reference draws from the work of educational and developmental psychologists, teachers and behaviorists (Turner, 2002). It is founded on the assumption that adaptation and change are based on the ability to learn, and that behaviors are learned through acquisition of knowledge, experience and practice. The main focus in the learning frame of reference is for the person to learn coping skills. Useful approaches within this frame of reference for the case of Sarah would be educative approach and cognitive approach. Educative approach aims to provide the knowledge that clients and carers need in order to allow them to identify a range of options for problem-solving and to make the most appropriate choices of intervention.
When it comes to learning a skill, experiential learning can be beneficial. This shows in the successful selection of the dressings suitable to the wounds I gave her to assess. Which proves that simulation provides an intense learning experience allowing space for the student or facilitator to apply the theory to practice. (Prescott and Garside, 2009). We finished up the study session with the poster from the beginning and the student labelled it successfully.
The approach is directed towards the attainment of objectives identified during therapy, that can lead to positive change for the client. Solution Focused Brief Therapy ( SFBT ) is a therapeutic method that empowers clients to construct positive change in their lives in a short-term period. SFBT holds two essential assumptions when it comes to creating change: 1) to facilitate the process where the client defines the outcome of therapy if it is to be effective, in other words, what will the preferred outcome be and 2) the therapist creates awareness about the strengths and resources and how it can be applied to create change ( Ratner, George & Iveson,2012
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ABC Method) could be described as “as I think, so I feel (and do)!” In any given situation you have: A. Activating Event – the actual event and the client’s immediate interpretations of the event, B. Beliefs about the event – this evaluation can be rational or irrational and C. Consequences – how you feel and what you do or other thoughts. On the other hand, Solution Focused Therapy (Where do I want to be?!) focuses on what clients want to achieve through therapy rather than on the problem(s) that made them seek help. The approach does not focus on the past, but instead, focuses on the present and future. The client is asked to envision how the future will be different when the problem is no longer present.
This essay hopes to shed light on the development of phobias with emphasis on classical conditioning principles. This essay will also describe how systematic desensitisation as an exposure therapy can be used to overcome fears and phobias. Phobias in their most basic forms are the results of a traumatic experience or a learned conditioned reaction from key figures in a person's formative years. Classical Conditioning is crucial when discussing phobias as it shows us why a person may react to a contextually unrelated or related object. At its simplest, Classical Conditioning is "A type of learning in which one learns to link two or more stimuli and anticipate events", it allows us to map out a person's responses and thus form links between
According to Sperry & Sperry (2012), Cognitive –Behavioral case conceptualizations include a clinical, cultural, and treatment formulation that emphasize signature elements such as predisposition (maladaptive cognitions/behaviors), treatment goals, treatment focus, treatment strategy and treatment interventions. In efforts to demonstrate an example of a Cognitive – Behavioral case conceptualization statement, Client A is presented. Client A is a 9 year old female Caucasian, 4th grader.
When Jake became highly anxious about his classes, a psychologist diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. However, the ways psychologist would look at the origin and treatment of Jakes anxiety would differ depending on the approach. A behavior approach would look at the environment around Jake, while the cognitive approach which would look at how Jake thinks. The humanistic approach would identify that Jake is not in harmony with his surroundings and look at the way he thought of himself. If one were to look at the origin of Jakes anxiety from the Behavioral approach, it would be based only on observations.
The main aim of this assignment is to find out the strength and weakness, similarities and differences between the different approaches of psychology such as biological approach, behavioural approach and psychodynamic approach. I have chosen mental illness to evaluate these approach. The biological, behavioural and psychodynamic approaches of psychology are connected to the nature and nurture argument. The biological approach highly talks about nature side of the argument and states that all behaviour is biological and is treatable.
