The theoretical framework of CBT also contains an assessment of the client’s contextual information, such as relationships, personal, work and an agenda and medical. The agenda is set at the start of each session and involves what the client would be covering during sessions (what problem the client is having the most difficulty with) timing, and the number of sessions, goals of therapy and interventions, such as homework tasks. Information from the assessment is utilized to form a treatment plan for the clients problems in order to help explore the clients problems, and for setting goals towards changing the clients unhelpful patterns, through the employment of intervention.

It will briefly discuss the feedback from my tutor and the group members. And finally the conclusion. Definition of group According to Berg, Fall, & Landre (2013, p 195) "Group work is a broad professional practice involving the application of knowledge and skill in group facilitation to assist an interdependent collection of people to reach their mutual goals which may be intra-personal, interpersonal, or work related" Planning In order to prepare for our group facilitation exercise, my colleague and I sat together for the first time in class to plan and discussed our understanding of what we thought was expected of us. According to (Corey, Corey & Corey, 2010) if group facilitators are prepared, they are more likely to be able to effectively open up members for a meaningful group experience. We agreed that I would open the group and my colleague would close the group.
I worked as teaching assistant for Human Physiology at UCSD. Dr. Cooke, the instructor of the course, implemented various in-class techniques as part of an education research project. My goal was to improve the students’ performance by utilizing effective teaching methods and keeping track of their progress. As a teacher assistant, I supervised in class discussions and facilitated the process of learning by addressing students’ questions and concerns. I also led a weekly discussion section, held individual office hours, and ran exam review sessions.
This assignment will show how through the use of Classical Conditioning principles that it is possible to develop phobias and that by using Systematic Desensitisation it is possible to overcome fears and phobias. A phobia is a serious or illogical fear of or hatred of something. Classical Conditioning is a process through which we learn about conditions that predict the occurrence of a significant event. It is also where the subject learns to respond to a stimulus that otherwise wouldn’t cause a response. Systematic Desensitisation is a graded exposure to the feared stimulus, which is the conditioned stimulus, thus encouraging extinction to occur.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) was founded by Dr. Aaron T. Beck in the 1960s, while he was a psychiatrist at the University of Pennsylvania. Having studied and practiced psychoanalysis, Dr.Beck designed and carried out numerous experiments to test psychoanalytic concepts of depression. Cognitive behavioural therapy has comprehensive evidence as a prevailing intervention for mental health problems in adults. Beck defined cognitive behavioural therapy as an active, directive, time-limited, structured approach used to treat a variety of psychiatric disorders (Beck, et al, 1979, p.3). Cognitive behavioural therapy can help change how one thinks (cognitive) and what one does (behaviour).
