Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ABC Method) could be described as “as I think, so I feel (and do)!” In any given situation you have: A. Activating Event – the actual event and the client’s immediate interpretations of the event, B. Beliefs about the event – this evaluation can be rational or irrational and C. Consequences – how you feel and what you do or other thoughts. On the other hand, Solution Focused Therapy (Where do I want to be?!) focuses on what clients want to achieve through therapy rather than on the problem(s) that made them seek help. The approach does not focus on the past, but instead, focuses on the present and future. The client is asked to envision how the future will be different when the problem is no longer present.
A few ways this situation has impacted my nursing practice is to; acknowledge my own biases, learn more about my patient’s community, and understand that my first assumptions are often incorrect. Another tactic that I use in population-based nursing is to value communities that are not like me for they are humans and deserve equal care and respect. Moreover, there is far more to learn from people and situations that are unfamiliar and unlike the population that you identify with. Together, these specific learning realizations have formed how I communicate with
• Unconditional positive regard – Therapists must always maintain a positive and non-judgmental view of their clients. Rogers’ believed that conditional regard and support from others lead to some of the problems clients mostly experienced. When they felt accepted without conditions and the fear of rejection was no more there, clients could openly talk about their
Understanding the struggles in their environment, and which stressors need to be dealt with first is very important to the client's ability to function at home. Although I can't picture a situation where I might use the genogram explicitly in that format, I do believe that knowing the relationships that your patient has with their family is very important. If there is someone who directs negative energy or is hostile to your patient, then chances are the patient doesn’t want to see them. This may not always be the case, but it should always be considered when respecting the privacy and health of the
Therapy based on evidence had been tried and trusted ever since. Especially, when it comes to behavioral-cognitive therapy, empirical evidence is very useful and also in some parts of family therapy, it can help to proceed through the issues as well. I still think that experience is more important than empirical evidence, just because of the fact that every client is different and in particular in family therapy we have more than one person that is meant to be helped. Here, professional practical skills, knowledge, and much experience is needed to perform best. No theory or technique can be good enough to help a client, if the therapist does not know how to convey the knowledge he has.
And, the three points and goals for individual rehabilitation is that it can be used if the patient have dual diagnosis issues, for example depression and hallucinations. Clients learn successful tools to take the control over their own life, and learn how to respond to difficult situations with effective coping
I will learn how to anticipate individuals needs and apply ways that consistently seek ways to enhance services. I will be able to think critically, to obtain family feedback and youth feedback to provide quality services to better family quality of
When engaged in an I-Thou dialogue one is concerned with the uniqueness of the individual, or summarized as “actively listening and encouraging the feelings and opinions of the other person instead of planning our next response while he or she is speaking” (Neher & Sandin, 2007, p. 90). Rogers believed the client should be the “director of their own lives, and it is the therapists responsibility to provide an atmosphere of unconditional positive regard and empathy towards the client” (Bozarth, 2012). The use of I-Thou communication style, or the non-directivity in his therapy, allowed Rogers clients to deal with the issues they believed to be most important, by allowing the person to cope at their own pace.
Do We Really Need Residential Care for Our Seniors? When the needs of our senior loved ones can no longer be met at home, we have to already consider the possibility of getting a residential care for them. Although most families would still prefer home care for seniors but we just have to understand that receiving care in the comforts of their home will eventually be insufficient as their health condition worsens. But we also understand that some people are still quite apprehensive of sending their loved ones at home because they cannot be with them all the time.
Initially, therapist and client have to build an equal relationship between each other, and later this relationships can become like a colleague who coaches them or somebody whose expertise and experience and understanding and knowledge they do rely on (2010, audio, excerpt 10). Therapist’s aim is to guide the client to find the direction in their life, they keep their on the goal and the purpose at all times, but allow the client to take that in charge themselves. Therapist helped him look at things in more breadth or more depth, i.e. exploring why it is they have this position or why it is it seem like this to them rather than like that to them (2010, audio, excerpt
Occupational therapist helps the patient learn how to identify distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns, recognize and change inaccurate beliefs, relate to others in more positive ways, and change behaviors accordingly by participating in meaningful activities for them. The main goals are to help the patient learn that OCD can lessen over time and give him or her the tools to cope with fear or traumatic memories. OT role is to establish routines and habits, meaningful activities that promote optimal levels of arousal or relaxation, and strategies for managing symptoms to enhance occupational performance. These services can help people build self-esteem and establish supportive relationships with family members, school/work personnel, and friends.
This was helpful because with me planning to use this in order to determine where a client stands in the processes of change, it was beneficial that the article explained what to expect in each stage and made suggestions in order for the client to experience each stage to its full potential. An example being the Self-Reevaluation stage, which suggested value clarification, healthy role models, and imagery are techniques that can move people evaluatively. Therefore, exposing the clients to others who have succeeded in overcoming substance abuse and has developed a better life in doing so may encourage them to change their habits rather than having to verbally recommend why changing their habits is necessary. Overall this was an article that supplied great information and will not only be a reference I use in intervention, but will also be something I use in my personal
