Personally, I can see both points of the Thomas Szasz ‘s article, and the medical model. If mental illnesses are real or just people thinking and acting differently is something I have questioned before. However, if these people are thinking or feeling in a negative way that affects
Afterwards, Shapiro and Startup developed a brief manual and rating scale for depression in 1991 (Guthrie, 1999). The model was constructed on psychodynamic principles, but also impressed by humanistic and interpersonal concepts. At the beginning, it was called ‘conversational model of therapy’. The essential role of the therapist in this model is to develop the ‘mutual feeling

This reflection paper is intended to examine various ethical solutions to a case study proposed by authors Sen, Gordon, Adshead, and Irons, who are forensic psychiatrist experts.

Psychotherapeutic techniques tend to elicit the patient's symptoms, in a controlled manner, in order to heal the patient. Such is the case in cognitive, behavioral as well as psychoanalytic treatments. In his article Davidson discusses other points such as the self-healing principle, the microdose effect, disappearance of the symptoms in reverse order of their appearance, and diagnosis by pattern recognition of the symptoms. (Davidson,
If, however, the individual is unable to properly cope with the stresses, they should seek education on ways to prevent the acute stress from progressing to something worse. Treating acute stress can be as simple as talking to someone about it or finding a hobby to distract yourself from it (Salvis, 2015). Someone with compassion fatigue should speak with their doctor and hopefully receive psychiatric counseling to help recover and to prevent a relapse of symptoms (Mathieu, 2007). There is no definitive treatment for Cumulative stress or PTSD but there are several options that can help people better cope and return to their normal lives. Most people being treated for Cumulative stress or PTSD undergo some form of psychotherapy and may be medicated along with it (PTSD Treatments and Drugs, 2014).
The words I have chosen for the first dictionary are Symbolic interactionism, conflict theory, and structural functionalism. These three words feel the closest to me because I am part of a medical field when I volunteer for hospitals. When working with adults in the Emergency Room and Intensive Critical care I tend to see different social classes, different diversities, social roles, different genders, race, and environments. When it comes to functionalism, we have doctors, nurses, and physician assistants working together as a team towards their goal of treating a patient. These show that there are roles that the patients look up too and trust with their life because they are educated.
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
