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 view that all internal experiences relate to interpersonal relationships. The process and techniques of psychodynamic therapy and counselling include: Identification of recurring themes and patterns of behaviour; discussion of past experience (developmental focus); focus on affect and expression of emotion; focus on the therapy relationship
The therapist helps Andrew to identify his physical symptoms, safety behaviours, and generates a graded hierarchy of anxiety inducing situations. During the education stage, the therapist gives Andrew a handout on anxiety which explains the physiological, cognitive, and behavioral process of anxiety. By this, the adolescent starts to learn about how they influence each other. Furthermore, to strengthen his self-monitoring skills, the therapist asks Andrew to complete diary entries of his physical symptoms, thoughts, and behaviours when he is feeling anxious, thereby helping him to differentiate between the three. He is also encouraged to use coping strategies once he detects physical symptoms.
We could integrated a family base approach along with a strength based (Kerig, 2010) approach to empower each of the family members. The family as a unit would need to be assess and also, as individuals. Through assessments the therapy informs him/herself about what has been the trauma implicated in each of the family members and the patters that behaviors have caused. Psychoeducation should be provided and that way everyone in the family can be educated. The family needs to resolve issues of trust, affect regulations and learn how to used coping strategies to understand how to deal with their
Equality is important because it gives everyone equal rights and opportunities. Diana Pham said that here daughters graduating from college would not be possible without out country’s belief in equality (Doc A). Now, everyone is treated fairly and treated with respect no matter what your gender, race, religion, or cultural background is. With equality, everyone is able to reach their full potential.
DEFINITION OF PSYCHOANALYTIC MODEL The psychodynamic model of the human mind can be defines as a methodical or organised study and psychological theory that lie beneath human behaviour, which lays emphasis on the inner play between the unconscious and the conscious mind. This model is ultimately as a result of Freud’s Psychoanalytic theory. Freud’s theory stated that the mind consists of three vital parts which are the conscious, subconscious and the unconscious which all together formed what he called the “Mental Iceberg”. The Psychodynamic model focuses its interest on the role which the childhood experience of an individual plays in the future of the individual’s mental health.
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
Multimodal therapy is a systematic and comprehensive psychotherapeutic approach developed by Arnold Lazarus, a Clinical psychologist. While respecting the assumption that clinical practice should adhere firmly to the principles, procedures, and findings of psychology as an experimental science, the multimodal orientation transcends the behavioral tradition by adding unique assessment procedures and by dealing in great depth and detail with sensory, imagery, cognitive, and interpersonal factors and their interactive effects. A basic premise is that patients are usually troubled by a multitude of specific problems that should be dealt with by a broad range of specific methods (Corsini, R.J. & Wedding, D.,
A case formulation helps organize information about a person, particularly when that information contains contradictions or inconsistencies in behavior, emotion, and thought content. Ideally, it contains structures that permit the therapist to understand these contradictions and to categorize important classes of information within a sufficiently encompassing view of the patient. A case formulation also serves as a blueprint guiding treatment and as a marker for change. It should help the therapist experience greater empathy for the patient and anticipate possible ruptures in the therapy alliance (Safran, Muran, Samstag, & Stevens, 2002; Samstag, Muran, & Safran,
The founder of psychoanalysis in Sigmund freud (1856-1939).to understand human behaviour psychoanalysis is a system of treatment that has given rise to discoveries and controversies that are actively with us today. It is a method of examining psychic phenomena and treating mental and emotional disorders that is based on the concepts and theories of Sigmund Freud, that highlights the importance of free association and dream analysis, and that involves treatment sessions during which the patient is encouraged to talk freely about personal experiences and especially about early childhood and dreams. The unconscious mind is made up of several, memories, feelings and urges that are external from our conscious mind The contents of the unconscious are generally unacceptable or unpleasant. Such as feelings of pain, anxiety, or conflict.
All the pressure and anxiety students go through trying to pass those tests, it’s terrible. Standardize tests are an unreliable measure of one’s performance. Test scores can’t measure learning or tell someone how smart they are. These types of test are some of the main causes of students cheating off someone they want to believe is smarter than them. Another reason students drop out and/or give up on themselves is because they scored badly on a test.
1. What features best characterize a behavioral approach to clinical problems? Behavior therapy is based on the assumptions that clinical problems should be addressed using assessment and treatment techniques that have empirical support and are based on established principles from experimental psychology. Clinical work tends to align itself with the study of human behavior for example: highly diversified field, scientific emphasis, de-emphasis of inferred variables origins, classical conditioning, learning theory and systemic desensitization procedures. Systemic desensitization procedures have to do with history of problem, determining treatment, assessing appropriateness, briefing the patient, relaxation training, and development of anxiety hierarchy and operant tradition 2.

Stress, anxiety, worry, and pressure. All of these things can be felt by students while taking a timed test. The topic of timed tests is often overlooked because people consider it an unimportant topic. However, after thoroughly looking into this topic and fairly weighing both sides of the argument, I firmly believe that students should not take timed tests. Primarily, stress can affect a student’s memory, causing them to have a hard time remembering the details about the topic.
