First, Hardin Memorial Hospital is a local hospital in my home town. In a nutshell this means it is highly likely that I may come across somebody that I know, or somebody that a friend of family member knows. Due to this fact it can become easy or even tempting to show special treatment or discuss client information with others. Mt ethical dilemmas paper discusses how a good social worker must always put the client first and never take short cuts with clients, manipulate or deceive clients, or break confidentiality unless
Psychologists, just like social workers, are in the helping profession, and both offer their clients counseling services on closely related problems. However, despite the functional similarities between social workers and psychologists, there are inherent differences in their areas of focus and the level of training undergone. This paper seeks to compare psychology to social work, and it will explore the target individuals of either profession, aspects of human functioning that each focus on, human problems addressed by each profession and the areas of overlap between the two. The origins of psychology can be traced back to the sixteenth century, and the name was derived from the Greek words “Psyche”, which means “soul” and “Logos”, which means “knowledge”. Therefore, the original definition of psychology was “a study of the soul”.
Some of the components are generalizable to other therapies, however, when we look at as a whole; they establish a specific describable model of therapy (Guthrie, 1999). PIT is a relational therapy, which focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the patient. Hobson (1985) determined six qualities of this relationship, which he thought were at the core of psychotherapy. The exploratory rationale, shared understanding, focus on here and now, focus on difficult feelings, gaining insight and change. The PIT provides exploratory rationale to the patient.
Psychotherapy can be defined as "talk therapy; a treatment approach in which a client works with a mental health professional to reduce psychological symptoms and improve quality of life" (Licht, Hull, Ballatyne G-10). Group therapy, such as couples therapy, is the route I would investigate, if I were to enter psychotherapy. Individual psychotherapy is much different than working in a group setting. Within couples therapy, a psychologist will focus on communication between the two persons involved, attempting to bring insight to what is going on between the couple, instead of what is just going on inside of one particular person. I know that there are always two sides to every story, so if I were only dealing with one individual, I know that
This theory of social constructionism is so relevant to the field of psychology because it directly deals with how people think. The driving factors into why individuals might make the decisions they do or why they conduct themselves in a certain manner. Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and how it functions with regards to behavior. The basis on which social constructionism is informed by psychology because it is built upon the main focus of psychology, trying to determine how our minds work, what makes us do the things we do and how the outside world factors into these
After all the reading and carefully thinking about what Mr. Lasken had requested from his physician it left me with the decision that Dr. Brody should not grant Mr. Lasken request to help end his life. In my discussion, I spoke about the Kantian Ethics and how it applies to the dilemma Dr. Brody was up against. To help end someone’s life purposely, regardless of their involvement, should not be done in the hands of someone else nor should anyone be placed in that situation. I considered both views, and found no favor into helping Mr. Lasken end his life and would be wrong on Dr. Brody behalf. As a physician you are sworn in by Hippocratic Oath and under that you are required in doing right by the patients; make sure all possible attempts
In addition, they are confronted with informed consent, competence, dual relationships, confidentiality, and social responsibility to their clients. For instance, “when psychologists are required by law, institutional policy, or extraordinary circumstances to serve in more than one role in judicial or administrative proceedings, at the outset they clarify role expectations and the extent of confidentiality and thereafter as changes occur.” Moreover, specialty guidelines for forensic psychologists tackle areas of competence, relationships, confidentiality, and privilege, which correctional counseling is given limited attention. Furthermore, counselors are faced with maintaining confidentiality, informed consent, not facing boundary violations, getting informed consent, maintaining competence, and guarding with dual relationships with their
Especially psychologist that deal with mental and behavioral health such as Clinical psychologists. Dealing with such, there are opportunities to witness different cases that cause some questioning on how it can be fixed. Whether to help their own client or have an effect on the world, studies are conducted to prove and cure. With my dreams to work in the psychology field, I will have to be aware that the possibility of forming an experiment that can result in being controversial is likely. While enjoying helping people mentally and emotionally, I do not want to harm them in any way, especially when my experiment is set out to prove a major problem within society.
(Dr. Beck) created and supported several experiments to tryout psychanalytic conception of depression. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) a goal that is established for a short period that is positioned psychotherapy treatment that take hand-on actual approach to problem solving. This goal also is establishing to change the way a client behaves or think and change the way a person may feel. (CBT) help clients become
When it comes to the science of psychology psychologist are looking deeper into what affects ones behavior and mental health. Looking at the environment, health issues, cognitive, learning, and etc… How does everything affect the overall mental health of a person? 2. Distinguish between a theory, a hypothesis, and an operational definition. They are all part of the second step in scientific method, designing and executing an experiment.
