Since CBT is a mental based therapy, it is imperative to have the client commit to a series of counseling sessions, whereby the client should be encouraged to speak freely about her situation as well as engage the therapist in coming up with solutions. The client, Ana, has indicated that she is ready to commit to eight treatment sessions and while more sessions may be needed, the client’s willingness to attend counseling session is encouraging. Short-term and Long-term Prospects The CBT theory is designed for both long-term and short-term interventions. The key determinant in the duration of the treatment would be the severity of the disorder, the response of the patient and the ease at which a patient divulges information critical for their treatment. While some patients may be forthcoming with information, other anxiety and depression patients have high defensive shields and getting though them takes longer time, hence the need for a more long-term care.
If your alarm clock could say something to you, what would it say? a. This form of expression from an individual’s mind is one of the key functions of drama therapy II. Drama therapy is the intentional use of theatre processes to promote personal integration and healing (Jennings, 2013) III. A combination of psychology and theatre, drama therapy uses theatre and personal expression to deal with the inner psyche of psychologically affected patients (Let me start by telling you a bit more about what are some of the techniques used in drama therapy: _Preview___) Body – (include citations of sources) I.
The author explained to them that the appropriate intervention which would benefit in Shane’s recovery was psycho education and had requested that they be involved. The author asked for guidance from their preceptor, to see if there are any usefully psycho education tools that would be useful to Shane in recognizing signs and symptoms of his illness. She advised a Daily Life Chart (see appendix) would learn Shane in identifying patterns in moods and behavior, thus expanding insight into how these relate to life events(Suppes and Dennehy 2012). As Shane’s family is a protective factor for him the author decided to use a family-focused treatment which educate them about symptoms and treatment of bipolar disorder. There are three stages in FFT which include Family Psycho education -that provides educational material in bipolar disorder, Communication Enhancement Training- were participants learn communication skills for dealing with family stress and the final stage is Problem- Solving Skills Training- which involves training to identify, define and solve specific family problems(Suppes and Dennehy 2012).
If the client is going through a hard time dealing with situations, a psychologist can provide patients with counselling to support the patient in attaining a more constructive personal, educational development. A psychologist will work with individuals, couples and families in order to make desired changes to actions. They can also supply therapeutic and treatment strategy’s based on patient’s interests and abilities of the patient. Psychologists see a variation of clients ranging from grownups to children. The psychologist will be faced with challenging disorders such as bipolar disorders, schizophrenia.
The primary purpose in psychodynamic counselling is to release repressed emotions and experiences so as to make the unconscious motives conscious. That is, to enable individual to review feelings, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into current problems and patterns of behaviour. It is stated that by identifying recurring patterns, the individual may perceive the ways in which they avoid distress or develop defense mechanisms as a method of coping so that they can take steps to change those patterns (www.goodtherapy.org). Freud’s stage of psychosexual development (and Erikson’s psychosexual stage of development) is a framework that the counsellor may use for the understanding of key developmental tasks characteristic of the various stages of life. The core principles of psychodynamic approaches to counselling include: The belief that early childhood experiences and past events, often unconsciousness, determine how people feel about themselves and their world.
The purpose of this assignment, I will critically discuss and analyse the use of the ABC-E model, when assessing and engaging with a new client. The ABC-E model of emotion is known by a bio-psychosocial model of mental health care which enables a client to understand there autonomic, behavioural and cognitive symptoms in their environment to get a much deeper insight, into how the client may be feeling. Nursing assessments are a key component to mental health nursing care. It is a decision-making process based on the collection of information that gives an overall estimation of the consumer and their circumstances (Barker 2004). Throughout this assignment I will look at the ABC-E model of emotion, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and The Tidal
The purpose of the second part of this assignment is to discuss and critically reflect on the use of psychosocial interventions with a client that the author has worked with on clinical placement, using relevant literature to support the assignment. For the purposes of reflection the author has used Gibbs (1998) reflection cycle to act as a guide through the process of reflection. The cycle itself consists of six stages to aid in the reflecting process, these phases include a description of what happened, feelings that were felt during the experience, an evaluation of the experience, an analysis, conclusions that can be drawn from the incident and an action plan that can be based on the conclusions of the incident that will help when a similar situation arises in the future. Wilding (2008) believes that the cycle can be adapted to all situations that a nurse may face to help make sense of a situation or crisis. Fejes (2008) believes that the process of reflection is used to scrutinize one’s self so that improvements in practice and competencies can be achieved.
Therefore, he used the therapy so called fixed-role therapy to altering the client’s personal construct. In the process of the fixed-role therapy, client was asked to write a self-characterization. Then, the therapist will develop a new character to the client which they found it plausible and asked them to enact it. The new character that therapist has designed is not a completed opposite of the client but its aim to introduce the new construct to their existing construct. During the enactment period, therapist will assist and encourage the client to become the new character.
The psychodynamic approach places emphasis on leaders obtaining insights into their personality characteristics and understanding the responses of colleagues based on their personalities. Leaders also encourage colleagues to gain insights into their own personalities so that they learn to understand their reactions to the leader and others. Important concepts in psychodynamic approach to leadership include family origin, individuation, dependence and independence, repression and shadow self. The approach proposes that leaders are more effective when they have an insight into their own psychological makeup and understand the psychological makeup of their colleagues (Woolfook, 2009). This leads to an important aspect of leadership that emphasizes past experiences, the unconsciousness, emotions, self-understanding and personality types as well as the relationship between the leaders and colleagues and the emotional transaction and communication between and among people (Zalzenik, 2008).
There is use of assessments in order to help make a clinical DSM diagnosis. The therapist begins by collecting assessment data to obtain a diagnosis and an initial formulation (conceptualization) of the case. The formulation is a hypothesis about the mechanisms causing and maintaining the patient’s problems. The therapist uses the formulation (and other information) to develop a treatment plan and obtain the patient’s informed consent to it. Then treatment begins.
