Due to this, the couple must be seen as one patient . Couple therapy has been proven to be beneficial for both couples and diagnoses in DSM such as anxiety disorders, MDD and sexual deviances . Traditional behavioural couple therapy (TBCT) facilitates couples to cooperate and live together in a harmony. Regarding this Jacobson & Christensen (1998) created a model called “incorporate acceptance” for couples whom experience incompatibility . Integrative behavioural couple therapy was also found by Christensen and Jacobson (1998) examining couple conflicts and aiming to help couple accept that all couples could feel incompatible as a natural course.
The approach uses the concept of traditional CBT, has a strong psych educational element and consist of twelve two hours sessions over 8 weeks. Whitfield observed advantages and disadvantages in delivering CBT in group format. The advantages associated with CBT groups; group can treat more people at a time, Groups can be less stigmatising, there is opportunity to learn from experiences and homework tasks of the other group member, CBT groups incorporate a ready audience which can be utilized for exposure and behavioural experiments, the view of other group members often carry more weight or are viewed as more neutral then the views of the therapist, some people feel uncomfortable with one to one professional relationship in therapy and so may prefer group, and can be useful for people who struggle with a one on one professional relationship (Whitfield,
The intervention needs to take into account the physical, psychological and social context which the client finds themselves in. The interventions should be grounded in a theoretical model and have components like cognitive restructuring, goal setting, and relapse prevention.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach to therapy. It is a goal-oriented style of counseling. Clients work together with the therapist to manage the symptoms of mental illness, help them to prevent relapse of symptoms, and live a more productive and less stressful lives. It has been proven effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders, somatoform and dissociative disorders, mood disorders, the prevention of suicide, eating disorders, sexual disorders, and substance related and impulse disorders. Components of CBT are thoughts, emotions, behaviors and biology.
They are viewed as both a form of resilience and strength, but also as a means by which a client can be connected to a social network outside of the therapy room. In many instances, clients are actively trying to deal with their issues before they come to counselling and this is often ignored or overlooked by the therapist. Clients may try many forms of alternative therapies or access cultural resources which they are already familiar with. The positive impact on wellbeing and mental health using alternative therapies such as spirituality, mindfulness, exercise, diet, yoga, walking, music, etc. are all well documented.
I have gained a tremendous amount of insight and development as a social work therapist. In summary, the therapy draws on a range of techniques that is useful by focusing and resolving the problems linked to the interpersonal problems; as well as, applying the therapeutic techniques to support the strategies of identifying the interpersonal focus. The clarification technique helps to explore interpersonal assumptions of what the client is communicating to ensure what the client is speaking is clear-cut. The IPT and techniques allow the client to explore their feelings while the therapist assists the client in exploring options in ways out of their
The cognitive techniques used in REBT manage the self-statements the client has, develop problem solving skills and educate the client to also teach others, the emotive techniques used are imagery, in other words using role play to combat the anxieties, anger or other emotions the client has (Wilde, 2008). The behavioural technique used in REBT is homework which is done outside the therapy session because the client has to interact with the world to over-come the irrational beliefs (Corey, 2014). I think REBT is a great therapy because it has no strict conventions and the client is responsible for their own
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
The purpose behind this behavioral approach is to build support for abstinence and to improve the functions within the couple Behavioral couples therapy promotes the abstinence of drug use with what is known as a recovery contract, this contract states that both couples will work together in a daily ritual to reward abstinence and improve communication, increase positivity with techniques explained in therapy (Powers, Vedel, Emmelkamp, 2008).

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective type of psychotherapy for this disorder,where the patient is exposed many times to a situation that triggers the obsessive thoughts, and learns gradually to tolerate the anxiety and resist the urge to perform the compulsion. Medication and CBT together are considered to be better than either treatment alone at reducing symptoms. The patient is strongly encouraged to refrain from his or her habits, with support provided by the therapist, and possibly by others whom the patient calls for assistance. For example, a compulsive hand washer may be encouraged to touch an object believed to be contaminated, and then urged to avoid washing for several hours until the anxiety provoked has greatly decreased.This process leads to the start of another process,which is the process of “Habituation”. Habituation causes a person to have less interest in a certain event once that person has witnessed the same event many times.
