Treatment Ch. 15 ● Therapy Staff The Patients and The Therapists Psychologists: 2 types 1. Counseling/(er) : private practice and works with everyday type of issues 2. Clinical: deal with full on disorders Psychiatrists: medical practitioner, similar to a psychologist but psychiatrist can actually prescribe medicine Side Note: More women go to therapy since it’s seen as socially acceptable for them to go unlike if it were a man. People often don’t go to therapy because they might want to admit they have something going on with them. ● Insight Therapies 1.Psychoanalysis: using interaction between the conscious and unconscious elements in the brain in order to reveal the repressed fears and conflicts to the conscious mind Free Association: saying a word or imagining a picture and saying the first thing that comes to mind, doing so removes barriers that might be there Dream Analysis : uncovering unconscious desires and gaining access to the unconscious mind. A therapist listens to what the dream is and gives back feedback that may uncover something to the patient that will reveal what’s going on in the dream. Resistance: clients putting up obstacles so that they don’t reveal what the real issue is since they might be embarrassed to admit they have something wrong with them or don’t want to accept what may be going on. Transference: when a client redirects his or hers emotions/feelings that were originally felt towards something else and now are taken out on the therapist 2.Client Centered Therapy : providing a safe and secure environment for the client. Client takes up the leadership role instead of the therapist; therapist acts as mirror for the patient and tries to clear things up for the patient. Group Therapy : people helping people with the same or similar issues, therapist doesn’t get involved unless needed to Couples and Family Therapy ● Behavioral Therapies 1.Systematic Desensitization: getting rid of a fear or phobia by putting in order, from least to greatest, what’s scary about the fear or phobia Exposure: exposing yourself to the fear or phobia, from the least scariest and going up from there or jumping right into the fear or phobia to get rid of it 2.Aversion Therapy: creating a classical conditioning setting to make something you think is okay to do, to then making it not okay 3.Social Skills Traini: used with people with autism so they gain adaptively gain skills that will help them 4.Cognitive Behavioral Treatments: working to refrain from negative thoughts, used with people who have depression or bipolar ● BioMedical Therapy (the most common of all) 1. AntiAnxiety Drugs example xanax 2. Antipsychotics: used for people going through hallucinations 3. Antidepressants: used to work on serotonergic neurons 4. Mood Stabilizers used for people with bipolar disorder 5. ECT (Electroshock Convulsive Therapy) : the small shocks produce small seizures in the brain ● Current Trends with Therapy People will use more than one form of therapy in order to get results Institutionalization (very are)
