• Caregivers may be fearful of retaliation from the caregiver/alleged abuser or their agency. • The Caregiver/alleged abuser may be a friend and co-worker. • Caregivers may be afraid that reporting will make the situation worse. • Caregivers may be fearful of alienating the caregiver/abuser and having needed services refused. • Caregivers may be reluctant to break the "Code of Silence" among
Although, this therapy has limitations effective for effective counseling, such as the need for specific set of techniques. Existentialism is limited in its effectiveness since it depends on the clients’ level of maturity, life experience, and the practitioners’ requirement for intensive training. In my opinion, although this therapy has limitations it can be beneficial for clients with PTSD. Existential therapy helps clients find the meaning of their life and helps them get back into central focus. Therapy helps clients understand that anxiety is a part of life.
As professional counselor identity focuses on providing guidance to the clients, in order to help the clients rectify their own emotional and mental issues. In addition, pprofessional counselors are different in their approach and treatment when comparing to psychotherapy. while counseling focuses on the person, psychotherapist focus on the diseases of the person. the goal of counselors treatment plan will be different with psychotherapist treatment that will focus on alleviate the symptoms of the client, while the counselors will concentrate on help clients to improve
The DSM’s understanding of an individual is limited to the diagnostic label applied to him or her, which might not necessarily be representative of the true nature of the person (Barone, Maddux, & Snyder, 1997). On the other hand, psychological case formulation understands that behind the individual’s diagnostic label lies a myriad of different causes that could have contributed to the manifestation of the disorder (Macneil et al., 2012). This not only leads to a more in-depth understanding of the client, but may also help to avoid the “pathologising of normal problems in living” (Mullins-Sweatt & Widiger, 2009). Currently, the DSM-5 includes several disorders that might not be necessarily pathological. For example, an individual is said to have Hoarding Disorder when they refuse to get rid of their belongings, no matter the value.
This is not to say that medical calls will not impact the responder. In fact, responders often encounter countertransference from being empathetic (Rothchild & Rand, 2006). Empathy is an important way for responders to relate to and treat a patient, but it can also cause changes in the responder’s unconscious emotions and health (Figley, 1995). In EMS, stress
Secondary appraisal is a perception regarding our ability to cope with an event that follows primary appraisal. He needs to decide if he can cope or not. If he decides he cannot cope he will experience too much stress which is not good for him. If he decides to cope he can do so in different ways. He could choose to deal with problem focused coping (a strategy in which we tackle life’s challenges head-on) or emotion-focused coping—a strategy in which we try to place a positive spin on our feelings or predicaments and engage in behaviors to reduce painful memories (Pearson
While it is not entirely certain how phobias are caused, when it reaches the point where common fears become unwarranted and irrelevant to the perceived object or situation that is considered to be dangerous, and impacts on our regular daily routine, then a phobia is said to exist. Somniphobia, or the dread of sleep, impacts on the life of the person with the condition in a way which affects their overall well- being. It affects their health, work, social relationships and can be detrimental in every way. There are several psychological perspectives or competing theories which attempt to explain what may give rise to the onset of phobias, each with their own merits and demerits. Some can be explained by themselves or can be combined to explain why people react the way they do to seemingly harmless situations and objects.
The view of change using this theory is that a person’s career path is unpredictable and change will happen in ways that a person will not expect. People need to be prepared for changes in their career path that come from unplanned events. Additionally, people have their own patterns of behaviors but that can change based on future events. The role of the counselor is to manage expectations, teach clients about the chaos that occurs in their career development, and build resiliency when unpredictable difficult events occur. When managing expectations, counselors must give the clients realistic expectations so that they do not believe that their career path will follow their exact plan without having unpredictable events delay or remove them from their plan entirely.
Based on this research, the present study’s results concerning emotion are confusing when considering the evidence highlighting the importance of eye gaze and fearful emotional perception. However, it may be more pronounced in individuals with trait anxiety (Mathews et al., 2003), which could explain the conflicting evidence. The effect of mundane realism may also contribute to this effect, as anxious participants reliably respond to danger-related stimuli much more than controls (MacLeod & Mathews, 1988), therefore fearful expressions alone may not be sufficient to illicit such a response in non-anxious individuals (Mathews et al., 2003). As such, it is recommended that further research be conducted by differentiating participants based on anxiety levels,
What might happen when someone has an anxiety attack. Some things that might set an attack off. I have a particular opinion that more people should know about anxiety so that they have somewhat of an idea on how they might be able to help. For example, if someone with anxiety lost their car keys and started over thinking and having an anxiety attack; how would you help? Would you attempt to calm and comfort them?
This would signify the ability to regulate moods, and behaviors effectively. Furthermore, when a person struggles to maintain balance due to irregular fluctuations where the thermostat is not working properly, dysregulation occurs. This analogy provides insight to why some people react to situations with irrational behaviors or have frequent disruptions that affect their moods and behaviors. Constant dysregulation makes it difficult for an individual to even recognize or form a baseline. This is the foundation of mental health, it can be challenging for some to regulate mood, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors and therefore, establishing tools to help individuals during times of distress is
