Within the three main modalities each person will have one that is dominant or preferred and each individual’s preferred modality can be ascertained by careful, inconspicuous, observation and questioning of the client by the therapist during the sessions, taking note of the way they dress, the language they use (words and tone), their body language (the way they breath, their postures and gestures) and the work and pastimes they undertake.
When we enter colleges or universities, we notice the clean-up of words, ideas and subject matters that might cause discomfort or give an offence. For instance, colleges and universities are avoiding these due to how it may cause students to feel uncomfortable and offended by a word or phrases. However, there is a therapy that can help us treat this to avoid discomfort and also stop colleges from taking away the freedom of speech. Considering this matter, Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt argue in their essay “The Coddling of the American Mind,” in how to fix these situations that colleges and universities have. Both authors explain what colleges and universities should do to promote cognitive behavioral therapy while reducing emotional reasoning. This will benefit any college and university yet, there will be some disadvantages and obstacles to try to implement cognitive behavioral therapy.
This article is discussing the impact that Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) group counseling can have on adolescents in Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP). The results show an overall reduction of student behavioral distress. As school counselors can only notice the augmentation of troubled students on campus, it is important to find school-based interventions, theoretically grounded, with a demonstrate efficacy to help them manage this issue.
This paper will extensively analyze Feminist Therapy as well as Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy. In this paper, I will discuss the biographical history of the theory developers, key concepts of each theory, as well as each theorist’s view of human nature, the reason and development of conflict that the client experiences, the roles of the therapist and client in therapy, and the goals of each therapeutic process. Additionally, I will investigate the multicultural perspectives of each theory. At the end of this paper, I will compare and contrast the similarities and differences between these two theories.
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
The key concepts of behavior therapy are that it “is grounded on a scientific view of human behavior that accommodates a systematic and structured approach to counseling” (Corey, 2013, p. 250). The attention is focused on the behavior of the person. Behavior therapy is about giving control to the client to expand their freedom. “People have the capacity to choose how they will respond to external events in their environment” (Corey, 2013, p. 250).
When conducting psychological research, it is difficult to gain access to large and normally distributed samples (Gravetter & Wallnau, 2006). Fortunately, there is a statistical test employed when making comparison between two independent groups that have no requirement for large and normally distributes samples; the Mann-Whitney U test. This paper provides a summary of the test, an explanation of the logic that underlies the test and its application, and the forces and weaknesses of the test. For instance, one of the major limits of this test is the type I error which is rather amplified in a heteroscedasticity situation.
The special education field is a very specialized career. A 1:1 Instructor has the responsibility of implementing the individual education plan written by the certified teacher. They also have the responsibility of ensuring that the student’s environment is structured, as is written into their applied behavioral therapy plan. This task requires, not only individual training by the students former staff, but a sound understanding of applied behavioral therapy as well. The workshop to train for this position should include, both an online component to formally address how applied behavioral therapy works, as well as on the job training and shadowing by former staff.
The practice model I find myself drawn to is the cognitive behavioral therapy. I like this theory because because it provides clients with a way correct their thinking or behavior. For example, how Sharon felt there will always be leaves. How the therpaist took pointed out the key word from the cilent always. Ive gained so much from this course such as being more emphateic, skill practices helped with critical thinking, tuning in and seeing both sides of a situaiton based on the culture and race. Im still working on m emphateic skills learning to apply myself to the situation and releive a simliar moment. Tuning in the difference btetween how i think a person may be feeling but acually experincing it with them. I have learned that
The basic principles of REBT have been in place for centuries. Human beings are prone to irrational thinking but are also able to apply rational thinking to resolve their disturbances. Almost all psychotherapists work to facilitate this; cognitive-persuasive methods have yielded good results. Ellis puts emphasis on the interconnected relationship between emoting and thinking, as both assist each other on regulating how the react to stimuli. Specifically, thinking sustains emotion past the initial impact. Ellis describes cognition in three categories: “cool,” “warm,” and “hot,” which are descriptive, evaluative, and strongly evaluative cognitions respectively. “Warm” cognitions will cause emotions, but “hot” cognitions are what sustains them.
REBT adds an extension to Ellis’ A-B-C model, with the steps D-E-F. D is the step for disputing, explained above. By using this step, the patient creates a more rational and effective (E) attitude to life and new feelings (F), which will now be more
In the Carl Rogers interview the interactions with the client reflected a person-centered approach which allowed the client to realize that she was responsible for themselves and was able to make her own decisions. When Gloria began speaking of her past relationship with her father, I feel the interactions were not dead on with the client-centered approach because this approach normally does not focus on the causes of the conflict but on the current feelings being experienced. It was interesting to observe how Gloria expressed her conflict of feeling promiscuous as being outside of herself, not taking full responsibility for her actions. Okun & Kantrowitz (2014) describes this as individual experiences that “remain part of the environment,
Presenting Problem: Student is a Caucasian male presented to the TCC counseling center with complains about feeling anxious because he is unable to socially or academically adapt to his school environment. The client has expressed concerns about his inability to build peer relationships as well as feelings of inadequacy. Tony indicated that college was not for “people like him.” Mr. Tony has contemplated dropping out of school but is apprehensive because his mother has threatened to “kick” him out of the house if he does so.
This week as I begun to read the theories that include Individual Psychology, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy I found that choosing which theory that I identified the most with is getting harder and harder. These theories are so similar. This led me to use a process of elimination which still left me with two Individual Psychology and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy.
The third wave of behavioral therapy includes acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. These types of therapies are designed to help people accept difficult life experiences and to persuade individuals to act on their core values. An evolution of cognitive-behavioral therapy, ACT, MBCT, and DBT not only include the thought process within the behavioral network, but mindfulness and acceptance as well. Instead of teaching people to control their thoughts and feelings in the case of CBT, ACT & DBT draws from far eastern philosophies of noticing and accepting the things in life that you cannot change.
