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 PIT provides exploratory rationale to the patient.
Therefore, accepting prudential subjectivism would then commit you to respecting the patient’s decision not to be treated. Accepting an objective theory of wellbeing would allow you treat the patient because it says the patient is not the ultimate judge of what is good or bad for her. Varelius stats that “if the autonomy this person had if she continued living is objectively good for the person to the extent that it overweighs other competing values, then the patient’s decision not to be treated should be obeyed” (p.167). Analysis Varelius’ argument hinges on the idea
Having power can be great because people feel the power and take on new challenges to better their lives, life without a risk will not get you very far. *An example of trust that affects communication is like when we are social workers we have to gain the trust of our clients. Having the trust of the clients helps a lot when trying to figure out how you can help them when they are explaining their situation, they open up to you. If trust is not gained then the communication is affected because the client will not speak openly as if trust was present. * An example of difference in communication and the only thing that came to mind was how social workers advocate for their clients.
Analyze The author is suggesting the reader to find a support group for guidance. Communicating is essential. It is best to talk to others about your habits to believing that you can overcome and cope with their addictions and also believe that change can happen. There has been a vast amount of alcoholics/smokers who quit drinking just by forming a habit of belief. Quote
Coping skills training is based on the premise that drinking has become a way of coping with interpersonal stress (Monti et al., 1994). Skills training provide alternative strategies to cope with social skills deficits and teach clients to deal with interpersonal stress without drinking excessively. Examples of social skills training include communication skills, listening techniques, assertiveness, problem solving, drink refusal skills, coping with urges to drink, relaxation, anger management and stress management skills training. A number of earlier reviews have stated that there is consistent evidence that coping skills training is effective in reducing alcohol consumption among alcohol dependent people (Shand et al. 2003; Raistick et al.

In order to assist the reader in following the occupation therapy process with Sarah, it is necessary to define some key theoretical terms such as theory, frame of reference, approaches and conceptual model of practice, and understand how they relate to each other in the context of occupational therapy practice. Theory as defined by Creek is “a conceptual system or framework used to organize knowledge” (Creek, 2002). When compatible theories are organized into an extended theoretical framework, a frame of reference is formed. In the context of occupational therapy practice, frames of reference are theoretical frameworks that have been developed outside the profession but are applicable to occupational therapy practice (Duncan, 2011). When the
In this essay, I will be discussing which perspective of critical social psychology I find most convincing. In order to do this, I will be looking at the work of theorists from each respective perspective within the field. In looking at the works of these theorists I will demonstrate my agreement with the psychoanalytic discursive perspective over the fields of discursive (pure) and psychosocial. Firstly, I will present some background on the discursive, psychoanalytic discursive perspective and psychosocial. Secondly, I will present certain works from within each field mentioned.
MI is done for or with someone, not to them. The practitioner should be guided by the client. Partnership, acceptance, compassion and evocation are central to this. MI is about evoking what the patient has rather than fixing what they do not have. Whether change happens is ultimately a person’s own choice, no matter how much the ‘righting’ reflex is used, the autonomy of the person must be respected.
