There are many types of therapy one could undergo for this disorder, but in Dwight’s case, I believe the best option would be Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT will help Dwight regulate his emotions, developing his impulse control, and improve his behavior. Many that deal with this form of autism tend to struggle with depression and anxiety. This therapy can help him deal with those struggles by changing his perception or thoughts throughout change in cognition. A therapist can help reduce Dwight’s obsessive behavior and outbursts, while helping him learn to manage his feelings.

While OCD and PTSD share some characteristics, they have a number of differences and therefore their treatments have unique features to address these differences. Imaginal exposure therapy is often employed in treating individuals with PTSD; patients expose details of the trauma and their emotions associated with it, working through them systematically (Monson et al., 2007). In order to establish imaginal exposure effectively, therapists must encourage their clients to create a description of the traumatic experience they endured. The therapists then works to correct their negative assumptions regarding the incident, varying thoughts of self-blame to more constructive thoughts. In comparison, treatment for OCD may involve prescription drugs,
The main treatment goal of MS is to prevent lasting neurological damage. MS treatment was confined to the treatment of symptoms but now there are disease-modifying drugs also known as DMDs. DMDs help to reduce rates of relapse, decrease the number of nervous system lesions, and slow or prevent the onset of disability. DMDs are used for treatment of relapse and for delaying disease progression in patients with RRMS. There is a DMD known as IFN used for treatment in the initial demyelinating event and it might prevent development.
This assignment will provide evidence and knowledge of understanding the concept of care based on a service user who has a long term condition of mental health and was diagnosed of severe Depression with Psychosis. In order to maintain confidentiality a pseudonym has been used throughout this essay to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 (last modified date June 2011) and the NMC code of confidentiality (2015). I will also reflect and evaluate my own performance as a learner and use the key characteristic of a lone worker in the community. In addition I would discuss how that particular intervention has helped me to understand my own learning needs and also when referring the patient to recommend interventions for reducing risk of depression, to create awareness on how to offer emotional and psychological supports to patient living with depression. It is part of our role as health care professional to safeguard our patients and educate them on the risks involved if they have unhealthy lifestyles and to promote healthy living based on evidence based practice.
One way they do this is through support groups like Family-to-Family were there is an instructional aspect of teaching family members to understand mental illness and ways of helping and living with a family member with mental illness. Courses such as this, according to Corrigan et al (2005) are shown to lead to improved attitudes about mental illness and the people living with it, particularly reducing blame of individuals with mental illness. A concern is raised as Corrigan et al (2005) alludes to research that states that this may also lead to increased pessimism about recovery from mental illness and a fear of people that may be viewed as dangerous, predictable or antisocial. However, Family Support Groups at the National Alliance on Mental Illness focus of increasing self-determination and confidence to combat the pessimism and develop management plans to deal with mental illness on a day to day bases and move towards
An interesting symptoms is the Re-experiencing symptoms that involve reliving the traumatic event. In order to be properly diagnosed you have to visit a psychologist or doctor to correctly distinguish whether you have PTSD or not. It requires exposure to
There are ways to treat these disorders, including exercise, meditation, therapy, and pharmaceuticals. The study by Akram and his associates, found a connection between these three disorders and insomnia, therefore, they concluded treating insomnia would also help relieve symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. Relieving the symptoms of these disorders, according to the study, also helped people with self-critical perfectionism. The results of the study concluded, people who had sufficient sleep and rest, were more able to handle the activities and hurdles of everyday life (Akram, Ellis, & Barclay, 2015). Some treatments for insomnia include exercise, regular sleep schedule, acupuncture, yoga, and avoiding caffeinated food and drinks before bed.
Patients can expect to learn to differentiate between past trauma and present memory and gain mastery over their reactions to the trauma memory (detailed in Foa, Hembree, & Rothbaum (2007)). Before beginning exposures, patients may also be trained in coping strategies such as relaxation and controlled breathing to make the aftermath of exposure sessions more pleasant (e.g., Foa, Hembree, & Rothbaum (2007); Lyons & Keane (1989)). Imaginal exposures entail real-time verbal or written confrontation of the trauma memory. The therapist guides the patient through revisiting a trauma memory in the therapy session by imagining a scene and repeating the narrative verbally. The patient is asked to recount the worst or most distressing event multiple times in session and listen to a recording of the session as homework (Foa, Hembree, & Rothbaum (2007)).
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a treatment program that focuses on reducing the negative emotions attached to an individual’s memories from a traumatic event. Shapiro explains that this eight phase process starts with developing a detailed client history and developing a treatment plan; patient preparation for using EMDR; identifying the target issues that need to be addressed; desensitizing the identified issues with “eye movements or an alternate form of stimulation”; introducing and “installing the desired positive cognition”; assessing the body to ensure that there is not any “residual material” from the targeted issues; “closure and re-evaluation” (Edmond et al, 1999). This process allows the patient
