To conclude, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to be the most appealing intervention strategy to use with April since she has anxiety. There are several reasons why I feel this approach is preferential. One, it was a problem solving approach that allowed April to examine how her irrational thoughts about driving contributed to her anxiety, and how her behavior and reaction being in the car would trigger her anxiety. This allowed her to become aware of the problem and helped her come to a realization that her thoughts affect the way she feels and by altering the negative thinking pattern, it can create a realistic thinking pattern. Two, by collaborating we came up with different strategies for challenging her negative thoughts. Even
The counselling theory I select is cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). This mode of treatment works by changing one’s opinions and perceptions of things that affect them. It mainly works by helping the patients break down their big problem into smaller bits that are easier for them to deal with. I
During the assessment, Monica reported anxiety regarding not being able to manage interpersonal conflict, possibly being dismissed from school and displaying inappropriate anger toward others. Monica recognizes there are some things she must work on, but is unable to make the connection as to how her cultural beliefs have impacted how she responds to others. In her earlier years of high school, she presented signs of inappropriate anger and frantic fears of abandonment, but she was encouraged to internalize her feelings and not to discuss them with anyone. Also, she learned early on in life that strong women handle their emotions and do not display outward signs of weakness. The previous trauma of being in a household that dismissed her feelings losing her mother to cancer and dealing with an absent father reinforced her feelings of abandonment, fear and inadequacy. Observational learning consists of learning and reproducing the behavior in the expectation that the person will receive

One of the greatest appeals to behavior therapy is its efficacy in treating a wide array of disorders and its innovative applications outside of individual psychotherapy. In the past century, behavior therapy has made increasingly effective and creative therapies to treat patients with maladaptive behaviors which were previously, in some cases, untreatable. With such developments, patients were able to not only treat pathologies, but also improve functioning in a variety of aspects of their lives as well as the lives of those close to them. Amongst the most widely implemented treatments in behavior therapy are token economies, contingency contracts, and behavioral parent training. These therapies proved to be greatly useful when they were
Eating disorders are often dismissed by the way the public and even professionals as merely slimming taken to extreme for reasons of vanity. The media's interest in ‘size zero’ fuels this misperception. However, the cost of these illnesses for the individual, their family and society is high, and it is important that prevention, early intervention and treatment are available (Treasure,
One theory that would be implemented with Ana is behavioral therapy (BT). According to Shillingford-Butler and Theodore (2013), BT provides positive reinforcement for appropriate behavior and penalizes students to reduce unwanted behavior which can be effective for students with ADHD. Therefore, the counselor would implement BT with Ana by using contingency contracts, modeling, and homework to work on specific skills (Henderson & Thompson, 2011). Presenting concerns that would be addressed with Ana within the context of BT include having a hard time focusing on tasks and forgetting to turn in her homework. According to BT, both problems would fall under the category of performing a task (Henderson & Thompson, 2011). The counselor could support

INTRODUCTION As most of my “lot in life” is true, I have had many encounters with the two agencies in our community that can help enrich me with knowledge and arm me with tools to help my son. Since I live in Italy, my resources are limited for help with ADHD and ODD. Although numbers are rising at alarming rates in the United States, in Italy, these diagnosis are rare. Because these diagnoses are rare occurrences for Italians, they lack in knowledge and resources to help the children and parents affects by them. The two agencies in my military community of Caserma Ederle that I have found most insightful and helpful are the behavioral health portion of our community clinic and the Army Community Services (ACS), which has a few programs dedicated to the health and well-being of the military families.
