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. Mechanism of MET: MET is based on cognitive and social psychology principles. The therapist needs to develop an inconsistency in the client’s perceptions between their at present status and their planned goals. Here, the commitment and desire to get change should come from client within self.
Albert Ellis, an important contributor to the ideas behind cognitive-behavioral therapy and the founder of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), discovered that people’s beliefs strongly affected their emotional functioning. In particular certain irrational beliefs made people feel depressed, anxious or angry and led to self-defeating behaviors. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be thought of as a combination of psychotherapy and behavioral therapy. Psychotherapy emphasizes the importance of the personal meaning we place on things and how thinking patterns begin in childhood. Behavioral therapy pays close attention to the relationship between our problems, our behavior and our thoughts.
Self Hypnosis Taking a skills training approach, I train my clients in self-hypnosis, what are essentially self-help techniques. The techniques used are based on validated research findings, which reveal that problems or disturbances are consequences of destructive and problematic forms of self-hypnosis. Self hypnosis is that internal chattering or self-talk which we all experience in our minds. It can be referred to in a number of ways including cognitions, autosuggestion, self-talk, self-suggestion, self-statements, self-instructions, automatic thoughts etc. Too frequently, internal hypnotic-like talk, these self-suggestions which drive us, influencing our emotions and behaviour, remains for the most part unchallenged.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) speaks to a mix of behavioural and cognitive speculations of human conduct, psychopathology, and a merging of enthusiastic, familial, and companion impacts. There are a few subclasses of the psychotherapy CBT some of these incorporate, Rational Emotional Behaviour, Cognitive, Rational Living, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy among others. CBT manufactures an arrangement of abilities that empowers a person to be mindful of musings and feelings; recognise how circumstances, musings, and practices impact feelings; and enhances emotions by changing useless musings and practices (Cully, J., Teten, A., 2008). This point/hypothesis is picked in light of the fact that it focuses on numerous regions of potential
Thus, the social worker could utilize cognitive behavioral therapy for people who are struggling/suffering from anxiety, depression, panic, agoraphobia social phobia, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and Schizophrenia etc., by assisting a client to change how she/he think and what they do. Since the focus is on the current causes of distress or symptoms instead to improve their state of mind now. According to James Pretzer (2014), There has been limited research on the ways in which cultural differences may impact the cognitive behavioral therapy practice. Since individuals from different cultures tend to think about different things and tend to think about them differently, using different reasoning processes. This obviously could have important implications for CBT with its focus on addressing the client’s thoughts and thought processes.
Treatment Modality Rationale When determining what intervention would be most appropriate, I was able to refer to National Institute of Health and learned that when medication is combined with therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, effective change can occur for clients diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Due to the numerous presenting problems of SW, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy would assist SW to “modify dysfunctional thinking and behavior toward solving current problems” (Beck). In other words, this treatment modality would target SW’s presenting problems to not only reach her goals but provide techniques to alleviate some of the more serious problems including suicidal ideation and substance use. Prioritization of Problems SW’s presenting

The first module is understanding distress tolerance. This module explains the meaning of distress tolerance and provides information about negative emotions. The second module focuses on accepting the distress, and even though it highlights the negative emotions, it teaches that emotions are not permanent and are ever changing. The third model focuses on improving distress. This module identifies ways to improve your distress by acting opposite to your normal behavior.
The didactic approach has been defined as a sequence where the practitioner gives information and attempts to persuade the client to follow this information. This approach tends to render the client a passive recipient to the knowledge imparted and reduces patient autonomy and can generate resistance to change (Heritage and Sefi, 1992). More recently NICE guidelines on behaviour change recognised the need for a person centred approach. (NICE 2007, NICE 2014). In the person centred approach the client is the expert about themselves.
His view for human nature could be explained in terms of a conscious mind a preconscious mind and an unconscious mind and the personality consist of three parts: the id, ego and the superego.
