Garb and Boyle (?) analyzed why it can be challenging to attain knowledge from clinical experience and as well reviewed the value of research concerning clinical experience and clinical training. They also touched base on research regarding cognitive processes, comments about the feedback clinicians receive, and made recommendations about improving clinical practices. Clinicians that have had experience in a clinical aspect have been thought to be more valid and factual. A lot of research has supported clinical experience. Though Garb et al. (?) informed readers that, “narrative reviews of clinical judgement have concluded that when clinicians are given identical sets of information, experienced clinicians are no more accurate than less experienced …show more content…
All of theses factors are either cognitive or environmental influences that can have a negative impact on clinical care. Biases are described as preconceptions and assumptions that can influence the clinician’s explanation of data. Confirmatory bias, overconfidence bias, and bias to perceive psychopathology fall under the definition of bias. Garb et al. (?) stated, “ confirmatory bias occurs when clinicians knowingly or unknowingly review patient information that can support but not counter their initial hypotheses” (p.28). When confirmatory bias is involved it can create inaccurate judgement. As well it can lead to overconfidence bias. Overconfidence can give a clinician the feeling that their judgement is more accurate than a clinician with no clinical experience. A clinician dealing with a patient of another ethnicity may over psychopathologize by considering a certain diagnosis over another …show more content…
(?) and responding to the assigned question I have been persuaded by the authors that clinical experience can cause difficulties for therapists. While it is always great to have experience and get that hands on knowledge, sometimes it is better to go in with a clean slate. Biases can easily be made with past experience for a therapist. As well some remembering and misremembering past information can alter current situations. Inadequate feedback can really lead clients to a misdiagnosis and false events. Garb et al. (?) did a great job of explaining and providing information why it can be difficult for therapists to learn from their own clinical

Therapist met with the client for individual therapy at school. Therapist did a check in regards to symptoms, mood, thoughts, emotions, coping skills, the goals that he achieved, and behaviors since the last session. Therapist processed the client's negative thoughts. Therapist used open-ended questions to address any concerns the client may have. Therapist encouraged the client to keep motivated during the stressful time, especially when he has negative thoughts, which stats usually with negative thoughts, argue with his sisters, or with his aunt, or if he has been triggered by any internal or external thoughts.
It is the reason for why people ignore some information and pay attention to other information, as shown in multiple examples through the movie Dallas Buyers Club. Ron Woodroof held the belief that he was healthy, so he only paid attention to the information that proved that he couldn’t have HIV, which was that he wasn’t a homosexual. He then believed that the drug AZT would aid him in treating his illness so he only viewed the studies he read about as valid reasoning to back his belief and disregarded the doctor’s opinions. Finally, the doctors in the film also disregarded a lot of completely valid information and only paid attention to studies that proved their own beliefs, that the drug AZT is one that would advance the treatment of HIV. Although confirmation bias does not seem like a rational thing to have, it is engrained in the human brain to find validity in the human’s own beliefs and therefore ignores all (still completely valid) information that opposes the belief that the human holds.
In the epigraph of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, Ellison quoted, “Harry: I tell you, it is not me you are looking at…but that other person, if person, you thought I was: let your necrophily feed upon that carcase… [sic]” This quote from T. S. Eliot’s Family Reunion portrays one of Ellison’s chief themes in many of his works. This inclination towards seeing what you want to see and omitting all else is, in psychology, called the confirmation bias. Individuals do this subconsciously every day without fail. Whether this bias is shown through writing a persuasive essay, or through explaining an issue to a colleague or friend, it plays a large role in many of our lives.
Finally, we will define confirmation bias and demonstrate how it was used to irreversibly harm the following 5 boys' lives. Confirmation bias is when we tend to disregard or question information in order to see things through a lens that better suits our belief system. We chose to analyze the Central Park Five case because we believe that it is a great example of how confirmation
Therapy needs to build up .this has to be earned. Client feelings have to be acknowledged and know the limits of client emotional state. It is very important to explain to the client how the process of therapy works .Also any assessments; process has to be explained to client in a clear manner in order for the client to able able to make decisions. This trustworthiness is built in time.
Therefore, we interpret further information only to benefit our conception. Furthermore, we consider external information—ones which oppose our conception-- as false. This phenomenon is called confirmative bias. It is a constructive and irrational partiality which is also exhibited by various officers, and it is what may induce corruption. Confirmation bias of police is observable, mainly, within court rulings.
Cultural competency is defined as having the appropriate understanding of different cultures which allows one to effectively interact with different individuals, to ensure all diverse needs are addressed. Having cultural competency helps one to recognize some of the following things, and as a result, it helps improve trust and acceptability. One of which is understanding food habits. By understanding food habits, one will have a better inclination of what might be at the core of many illnesses and diseases, and will be able to advise care and treatment plans that the patient will be more likely to successfully implement. If the physician is culturally competent, they might catch a deficiency, for example, and they would have the ability to suggest all the correct foods to supplement it.
When preparing to enter the health care field, it is important to be mindful of one’s own lack of or limited cultural competency, but unlearning biases is another important factor in this process. Biases, stereotypes, and prejudices are all taught to every person starting at a young age, and get reinforced through media and social influences later on. These biases often operate within a person subconsciously, leading to a person making assumptions about or avoiding people of a certain ethnic group without even realizing it. When one becomes aware of these biases and how prevalent they are without a person realizing it, they can then work on combatting them. When one lets stereotypes shape how one views others, it can seriously damage their
Success varies between projects because they differ in size, complexity, and uniqueness and therefore the criteria used to measure success will vary as well. Individuals and stakeholders may interpret project success in various ways and the industry itself lends further variation on viewpoints about performance (Davis, 2017). The opinions of success, and how important success dimensions are, vary ‘by individual personality, nationality, project type, and contract type’ (Mir & Pinnington, 2015). To accommodate for various projects a high level success framework includes project efficiency, customer impact, team impression, business requirement accomplishment, and planning for the future (Mir & Pinnington, 2015). Determining whether the targeted
Research found that clinical experience was considered by 98% of Swedish psychotherapists as a very important for their professional development (Heffner and Sandall, 2009). I thought this post was a good example of how to help in the development of theoretical orientation. I thought to myself, I could never live in Alaska. It really seems like an isolated place but it seemed to have helped in your development as a counselor. The story stated that you were able to be kept abreast on lot of theoretical approaches and it seemed that it would be helpful in determining what would work for different clients.
Therapists must access their own internal process such as their feelings, attitudes and moods. Therapists’, who are not receptive to the awareness of their flow of thoughts and feelings, will not be able to help clients be aware of theirs (Kahn, 1997, p. 40). Though congruence does not mean that therapists have to share personal issues with clients, a therapist must not conceal their inner process from the client, and not be defensive but transparent (Kahn, 1997, p. 41). By being open sometimes a therapist learns more not only about their client but about themselves
DISCUSSION From the beginning, the therapist had to deal with own doubts and anxiety. The therapist had heard a lot about the psychodynamic psychotherapy but this was the first time he conduct the sessions by himself. Unlike pharmacotherapy, there is no standard clinical practice guideline or recommendation for the therapist to refer to or follow. The therapist was worried that he was unable to conduct the therapy effectively and his patient would not benefit from the therapy.
Another limitation is the assumptions and manipulation of the therapist. The therapist looks up to them as an expert and assumes a lot of situations. Due to their experience, they tend to come to conclusions that this should be reason. For example, the therapist can fail to clarify or even before going in depth at the situation, they came to their own conclusion.
Having the opportunity to listen to patients during their interactions with physicians while shadowing in primary care practices was most profound to my journey of pursuing a career in medicine. Often the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions are regarded as most important in providing successful care to patients. However, from my experience shadowing, it became apparent that the act of listening to patients is just as essential to the practice of clinical medicine. While shadowing, I was amazed of how often and to the extent patients would disclose their thoughts, feelings, and fears to their physician. I began to understand that to be a physician is much more than treating the body itself, but caring for all of its components— physically,
