At the end of my day, I assessed my stress by answering three questions, did I feel worried, overwhelmed and depressed about not completing all my tasks, did I feel tired, impatient while driving and did I handle irritations and become angry more than usual? Did I feel like
This assessment is designed to rate how a client feels on a scale of 0 – 4, about how depressed the client is. One of the question is: “Rate on a scale of 0 – 4 about how your depression has interfered with or caused difficulties in your life, over the past week”.
My Mood Monitor (M3) is a 27 question assessment tool use by healthcare professionals to assess patients with substance use disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). According to Gaynes et al., (2010) the M-3 demonstrates utility as a valid, efficient, and feasible tool for screening multiple common psychiatric illnesses, including bipolar disorder and PTSD, in primary care. The M3 combines screening tools such as the Patient Health Question (PHQ), Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ), General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and the Clinician Administered PTSD scale (CAPs) into one tool.
Introduction The video was about two sessions for a client with depression, and the treatment plan included Behavioural Activation with Self- monitoring and Activity Scheduling. The therapist focused on the activities the client has been doing in order to link it to the maintenance cycle of depression. In the first session,
Kelsie, my environment plays a huge role in what mood I am exercising. For example, when at the beach I am happy, stress free, and joyful. However when I am at a funeral, my mood changes instantly to pain, sorrow, and upset. The environment around me constructs each mood and
Furthermore, results did not support the hypothesis that the 1:00 PM class would have more positive moods than the 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM classes; however, results did suggest that mood was affected by the time of day. Nevertheless, only particular times were affected, for instance the 4:00 PM late afternoon class had higher scores for the negative moods than the 8:00 AM class. Also, the 4:00 PM class had higher scores on the shyness subscale than the 1:00 PM midday class. The results that the late afternoon class had more negative mood than the midday appear to go against the current literature given that the research suggests that Negative Affect does not fluctuate throughout the day and is not related to the circadian rhythm (Murray et al., 2002). In contrast, Positive Affect appears to be related to the circadian rhythm, tends to increase throughout the day until about 9pm, when PA
I demonstrated emotional management through strategies to reduce stress and anxiety. Because I commonly encounter anxieties and panic attacks during challenging situations, I will often invite friends over while I was working on my product, so they can support me and give me advices that will allow me to stay on task (Appendix i, Extract 8).
The instrument asks participants to rate, on a 5-point Likert-type scale, the extent to which they (1) strongly disagree (2) disagree (3) neither disagree nor agree (4) agree, or (5) strongly agree with statements relating to mood recognition, emotional regulation, and empathy. Sample statements include “I easily recognize my emotions as I experience them” and “It is difficult for me to understand why people feel the way they do”. The scale has previously shown to have good construct validity with a Cronbach’s alpha of .90 (Schutte et al.
However, in this paper, only Stress Management (SM) and Affect Expression and Modulation (AFM) modules will be addressed based on obtained information. SM and AFM modules can help Amy manage her emotional dysregulation, control and reduce her stress and anxiety
The 2 passages I am going to talk about are learning to control your moods and science of moods.The authers of the passages are Jennifer James,and Terrence M. Hollan.
At each session, David has been dressed appropriately for the setting, weather, and appeared his stated chronological age. Typically, the client wears t-shirts, a jacket and cargo pants with sneakers or boots. The client has multiple tattoos on his forearms and upper chest and neck area that are typically visible
Early psychological research emphasized observable and objectively measureable outcomes. However, the idea of cognitions eventually become more popular, and the nature of psychological research (i.e., to understand both behavior and internal processes) was adapted to inquire about participants’ internal experiences (e.g., thoughts and emotions). Knowledge of these experiences is typically assessed via self-report questionnaires. Despite self-report being the most common method of personality assessment (Paulhus & Vazire, 2007), there are frequent discussions about its limitations. To address some of these limitations, such as those outlined by Nisbett and Wilson (1977), many researchers are turning to ecological momentary assessment (EMA). Implemented with smart devices (e.g., phones, tablets), EMA allows researchers to ask participants questions about their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors multiple times a day for days and weeks at a time. Due to its nature of in-the-moment assessment, EMA can address many of the limitations of traditional self-report, such as reducing the reliance on memory recall and integrating both introspective and behavioral measurements. However, old limitations still exist, such as biased reporting, as well as new limitations, such as awareness biases.
Affects Two popular techniques of capturing affects are experience sampling method (ESM) and day reconstruction methods (DRM). ESM participants are supposed to record their feelings and activities at random time points, few times a day, over a period of several weeks. This method is the most accurate one, but is expensive and intrusive (Lyubomirsky & Kurtz, 2011). DRM is a popular alternative to ESM. Participants are asked about their entire day in a diary form. The main problem of DRM is a lack of details due to the recall effect, but it still replicates ESM results accurately enough (Kahneman et al., 2004).
Background In the contemporary gadgeted era, human patients are continuously monitored during their stay in the hospital. It gives rise to inconvenience and psychological strain to the patients during their stay
Emotions can be seen as a weakness, but in other ways emotions can be seen as a strength; some emotions can cause a person to achieve higher while others can cause them to fail harder. I believe that almost every person in the world has one part of their personality, he or she wishes he or she could change. One emotion I wish I could change would be my irritability. In Tagolog, we have this term we say when someone is easily irritated, its called, “pikon” (pee-koe-n). Throughout my 22 years of life, I have been called this term by my family way too often, to the point where they think I’m being, “maarte” (Ma-are-te) or overdramatic. I find it really easy to allow my temper to show especially when I feel that I am being disturbed or annoyed by another person or objective I am trying to complete. The easiest moments when I feel irritated are when I’m playing video games or being nagged by my family. Throughout this project, my goal was to allow myself to not be as irritable as normal, and to become more level headed and calm in the face of annoyance. I aimed to feel this emotion at least half the amount of times than I usually do, so hopefully it would only happen one to two times a day, five times a week max. The strategies I chose to do for this experiment was: 1) Distracting myself, 2). Ignoring the thing or person that is irritating me, and 3) countdown from 15 to 0 to calm my head.
