1. We all have that family member that could benefit from some form of therapy whether it’s behavioral, psychoanalytic, person-centered, etc. I like how your example included the family remember that often explodes at family events and the whole family know to avoid getting him/her upset. Your example was very realistic and relatable. However, there are other times where REBT is beneficial with things like depression or even de-escalation. When I worked at a juvenile jail, I would often use REBT techniques to deescalate kids from getting into physical altercations with staff and other juvenile offenders. Other than anger, can you identify other instances where REBT techniques would be beneficial?
2. According to the text, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD, ABPP. It emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training classes to help people learn and use new skills and strategies to develop a life that they experience as worth living. DBT skills include skills for mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness DBT was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It is now recognized as the gold standard psychological treatment for this population. In addition, research has shown that it is effective in treating a wide range of other disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders. Fellow classmates, what are your thoughts? On this type of treatment?
3. According to the text, Self-monitoring is possibly the single most important mechanism in changing any thought or behavior. It is an extremely broad term which encompasses tracking nearly any pattern from which to move forward and assess your progress (or lack of progress) towards a goal. It’s a skill that is so engrained in our lives that we forget we are constantly monitoring ourselves in various ways. Self-monitoring allows us to uncover necessary changes and set realistic goals. This is why it is such an essential part of changing any behavior. In fact, study after study has shown that simply monitoring your behavior is a powerful intervention in itself. The problem is that self-monitoring required planning, motivation and vigilance – things that most of us trying to change a behavior lack. Classmates, can you describe a install where as you access the concept of self-monitoring?
