As helping professionals, social workers are constantly faced challenging cases and resistant clients. Historically, resistance was defined as a state of unconsciousness; however, this perception has changed and the term has been redefined as a disagreement between the forces of the personality such as the id, ego, and superego (Teitelbaum, 1991). The shift towards personality is referred as Ego Psychology introduced by Freud in 1923 (Goldstein, 1995). The ego enforces the reality-principle and helps individuals adapt to the external world (Goldstein, 1995). The ego mediates between the id and the superego, and it causes the delays in pleasure, drives, and impulses of the id until the situation (reality) changes or is a socially acceptable.
Skinner in the behavioral theory would look at clinical depression as a learned behavior, according to simply psychology, depression is learned through certain negative emotional states and also observation and reinforcement. Losing one’s job is considered operant conditioning and that is when the positive
The monograph included his concept of negative cognitive views about self, beliefs, world, and future. According to Beck, those three components interact and can interfere with normal cognitive processing which leads to impairments of perception, memory, and problem solving (McLeod, 2008). Moreover, Beck believed that a negative self-schema may be acquired in childhood as a result of a traumatic event such as the death of a parent or sibling, parental rejection, overprotection, abuse, criticism, exclusion from certain social groups or bullying at school (McLeod, 2008). Additionally, he introduced in his monograph on depression basic strategies to help patients explore their beliefs and how to protect themselves from the “biasing effects of schema-driven processing” (Hollon,
By using clinical observation of depressed patients Beck was able to come to the conclusion that patients had a negative cognitive triad where they had a negative view of themselves, the world and their future. He dubbed this negative thinking as “negative automatic thoughts” (Beck 1976), as the thoughts seemed more spontaneous rather than as the result of deliberate thought. Through this essay, I will be discussing how the importance of our thoughts and behaviours are vital in understanding depression (Beck et al. 1979), the key components of CBT, and how negative automatic thoughts may influence our everyday lives. The three modalities of behaviour are motor, cognitive and physiological.
Psychoanalysis was first introduced by Sigmund Freud and is now known as classical psychoanalysis. The theory, as defined by Sigmund Freud, is the dynamic between underlying forces that determine behavior and personality. He stressed the importance of human sexuality, childhood experiences, and the unconscious processes. However, his theory was seen as misogynistic and narrow focused. Consequently, classical psychoanalysis was criticized and rejected by many scholars.
• Social Cognitive Therapy According to Sue et al (1997:350) this form of therapy makes use of a psychodynamic styled approach in treating an individual’s depressive state by working on their social skills with others. In achieving this, the methods used in other styles of treatment, such as mental-habitual remedial treatment, are applied. The rationale associated in this type of treatment is that depressive states of mind take place as a result of social situations, in which the need to deal with certain conflictions and problems need be sorted out amicably. At this level the individual is provided with an internal look at what the conflicts are and how they need be resolved. This is done by teaching the clientele how to establish issues

(Salkovskis, 2010) explains how cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) combines elements of cognitive and behavioural theories. Whereby the cause of distress is recognised in behaviourist terms ‘learned helplessness’ or ‘lack of positive reinforcement’ (Seligman et al, 1974) in conjunction with (Beck et al., 1976) cognitive theory of emotion. Roots of behaviour therapy lie in learning theories. Wolfe (1958) described a treatment called 'systematic desensitisation' involving the gradual introduction of increasing intense phobic stimuli, whilst offering sustained relaxation. This then evolved into 'graded exposure' involving the therapist encouraging the client to face their fears until they eradicate them.
With divorce comes many negative reactions and coping mechanisms. Famous psychologist John Bowbly, who introduced the Theory of Attachment between parental figures and children when born, attributed two main emotions that come as a package when divorce is present: anger and hostility. Negative emotions are directly linked to how the adults in the situation handle the divorce. It is stated that if parental figures show anger and hostility before, after, and even during the divorce, the children involved will learn from their behavior and replicate it as a “normal model”. This is what Bandura called “The Social Learning Theory”.
Journal Article Review Mental illness stigmatization has a crucial impact on the wellbeing of individual with mental illness by creating self stigma, preventing them from reaching their goal and inhibiting use of available services due to fear of labels. Due to these associated obstacles, stigma requires attention and reframing. This brings up the question as to if mental illness stigmatization is a problem based in public health policies or a social injustice. Corrigan, Watson, Byrne, and Davis (2005) argue that viewing mental illness from a public health perspective alone, while may provide some benefits, also produces negative byproducts, and a social justice perspective may be more apt as changing stigma. The National Alliance on Mental
Atypical Depression is a deficiency in interpersonal being and social skills due to the dangerous and understanding of denial. For the reason that these folks are extremely sensitive, and they exaggerate and in excess of thinking other’s people’s comments and ideas, and accept as true actions that are individual assaults. Several people that are suffering from atypical depression statement that this understanding started in their early childhood and may perhaps during times gone by of physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse (Fields, 2013). Social Anxiety Disorder consists of devastating uneasiness and being self-consciousness roughly on a daily social situations. This uneasiness frequently centers itself on the panic of being judged by other
The main focus of this paper is defining the common clinical problem, and discussing the severity that postpatrum depression poses on infants and mothers. Eisner et al. (2002) argues that postpartum depression can also lead to psychos, which is more susceptible in women who had previous mental health issues such as bipolar. This pycosis requires invention imeadalty as it involves bizarre behaviours, unusal halluicantions a, which can result in the mother causing serious harm or death, to herself or the child. This article was very important as it demonstrated the severity that postpartum depression has on the child and the mother and the they risks that they impose when not intervened.
The other side of bipolar disorder is depression where a person may be full of self-loathing and hopelessness. Additional thing shown in the clip is the doctor providing a prescription for Ativan to help settle her down. Mood stabilizing drugs are a backbone for patients with bipolar disorder. These drugs are used for acute episodes of depression and mania, keeping the episodes in check. Bipolar disorder is an ongoing, relapsing mental illness and it is important for those who suffer to continue their treatment.
The grandiose narcissist copes with difficulties in self-esteem by viewing themselves as superior and unique and by engaging in grandiose fantasies. Narcissists are very exploitative, entitled, envious, aggressive, especially when they are distressed. As related to borderline, Narcissistic Personality disorder is strongly associated with a history of childhood adversity, including physical abuse and neglect, and with having a parent who was abused or had a previous mental problem. The potential forms of treatments of disorders will be directed to cognitive and psychodynamic approaches. Cognitive therapies have found means to help clients identify and challenge their negative thoughts and dysfunctional belief symptoms.
Cognitive models of psychosis have emphasised the role of ‘thought content’ and ‘thinking styles’ in the progression and maintenance of psychotic experiences (Morrison, Haddock & Tarrier, 1995; Morrison, 2001; Garety, Kuipers, Fowler, Freeman & Bebbington, 2001), these cognitive processes have been likened to those of depression and anxiety. Fundamentally, these ideas have emphasised how delusions and hallucinations can occur when atypical experiences that are shared with the majority of the people, are potentially perceived in a way that has great and intimidating personal importance (Tai & Turkington,
