It’s clear that people with addictions have seriousissues. In most cases, they have emotional or trauma issues that cause them to medicate their minds and bodies with harmful substances.

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)).
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).

CT is a type of psychological approach used as treatment for many different types of disorders such as anxiety or mood disorders. This approach focuses on the continuous assessment and self-monitoring of the individual, relaxation training, and cognitive restructuring. A specific CT plan that is well-known and widely used is proposed to be used on the client because this type of treatment will allow the client to work through her fears and anxieties. This was chosen over a biological approach such as an SSRI, because developed dependencies and high relapse rates are common in these. The proposed 7-step treatment plan would occur as follows: 1.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) speaks to a mix of behavioural and cognitive speculations of human conduct, psychopathology, and a merging of enthusiastic, familial, and companion impacts. There are a few subclasses of the psychotherapy CBT some of these incorporate, Rational Emotional Behaviour, Cognitive, Rational Living, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy among others. CBT manufactures an arrangement of abilities that empowers a person to be mindful of musings and feelings; recognise how circumstances, musings, and practices impact feelings; and enhances emotions by changing useless musings and practices (Cully, J., Teten, A., 2008). This point/hypothesis is picked in light of the fact that it focuses on numerous regions of potential

These objectives are as follows: • To determine the concept and history of attachment theory • To evaluate the ways in which attachment style of a client with self-esteem issues assist in treatment plan and case formulation in CBT • To assess the attachment styles in order to attain core beliefs earlier at the time of drawing formulation with the client Research Questions The main research question of the study i.e., does knowing the attachment style of a client with Self-esteem issues can help in the case formulation and treatment plan in CBT? Further divided into varied questions that can help in achieving aims and objectives of research investigation, • What are the basic concepts and history of attachment theory? • What are the ways in which attachment style of a client with self-esteem issues assist in treatment plan and case formulation in CBT? • How attachment style of client can be assessed in case of formulation and treatment plan in CBT?
Multimodal therapy is a systematic and comprehensive psychotherapeutic approach developed by Arnold Lazarus, a Clinical psychologist. While respecting the assumption that clinical practice should adhere firmly to the principles, procedures, and findings of psychology as an experimental science, the multimodal orientation transcends the behavioral tradition by adding unique assessment procedures and by dealing in great depth and detail with sensory, imagery, cognitive, and interpersonal factors and their interactive effects. A basic premise is that patients are usually troubled by a multitude of specific problems that should be dealt with by a broad range of specific methods (Corsini, R.J. & Wedding, D.,

This essay hopes to shed light on the development of phobias with emphasis on classical conditioning principles. This essay will also describe how systematic desensitisation as an exposure therapy can be used to overcome fears and phobias. Phobias in their most basic forms are the results of a traumatic experience or a learned conditioned reaction from key figures in a person's formative years. Classical Conditioning is crucial when discussing phobias as it shows us why a person may react to a contextually unrelated or related object.
