COSOLIDATING: REFLECTIVE PRACTICE. INTRODUCTION: In this reflective essay, the writer intends to explain the concepts of reflection. Analyse and critically reflect on his professional development throughout the branch pathway during his training placement programme. Among the module undertaken are perspective of mental health, therapeutic use of self, patient focus, restoring mental health, supervision and management of care. With the use of Gibbs and John’s reflective model, the writer will critically examine acquisition of clinical knowledge and skills.
Mental health professionals practice active listening and encourage the client to express their feelings. Mental health counselors develop and implement treatment plans based on the client’s physical or mental condition. Client information is collected through interviews, observations or tests which guide counselors in the development of therapeutic information strategies that will help clients deal with their problems by targeting at-risk behaviors which promotes optimum mental and emotional well-being of the client (Erford, 2010). Over the past decade organizations have come to the realization that mental health professionals need to become competent in cross cultural interactions. Competent multicultural mental health professionals play a key role in success of mental health counseling interventions (Connerley & Pederson, 2005).
Case Study Reflective Supervision Report Cognitive Behavioural Therapy For An Individual With Early Onset Psychosis Word Count 2700 Introduction This assignment will focus on the interaction between clinical supervision and the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with a young person experiencing early onset psychosis. The study will demonstrate the knowledge and the critical application of theory to practice, analysing how the clinical supervision process informed and influenced my thinking, planning, interventions and evaluations of care. The names and any identifying information of those people included in this report have been changed in order to maintain confidentiality. The young person will be referred to as James. Psychological interventions for the management of psychotic symptoms have been available for over thirty years, though it is only since the 1990’s that recognition and acceptance of the value of these treatment approaches were acknowledged (Garety et al 2008).
- ISBN 1-57230-396-4). Although the early behavioral approaches were successful in many of the neurotic disorders, it had little success in treating depression. Behaviorism was also losing in popularity due to the so-called "cognitive revolution". The therapeutic approaches of Aaron T. Beck and Albert Ellis gained popularity among behavior therapists, despite the earlier behaviorist rejection of "mentalistic" concepts like thoughts and cognitions. Both these systems included
On the other hand, onset of dementia did not seem to be associated with an increase in depression. In fact, the opposite appeared to be true. They found that people who are developing dementia are less depressed because the fact of it, they became less depressed in total. When people lose they thinking and memory abilities it’s harder for them to be depressed and stay like this. It’s usually depressing people around like family and friends.
Robyn believes that medication can be helpful, but she does give valid points about how it is over used. There is no one true norm for a human mind. By changing how the brain acts just to mask the troubled area, doesn’t help to find the root of the problem. Sarah says in her paper that pain (a problem) in our life is a response to our life. When experiencing “pain”, one reassesses and rebuilds, or takes a pill to cover it up.
Author: JE Word Count: 2167 ‘Discuss the relationship between stress, anxiety, habits and phobias and describe how you would treat these issues with hypnotherapy’ This essay will explore, describe and discuss individually each of the conditions of stress, anxiety, habits and phobias. How each are identified and subsequently treated with hypnotherapy these neurotic conditions are the most common requests for hypnotherapy. The relationship that exists between each of these conditions will be identified, explored and discussed in more detail throughout. I will also consider the ethical questions that need to be considered by the therapist when treating this group of clients and appropriate treatment regimes.

This shift did not come without its problem; instead if came with many implications for people living with mental illness. Reform increased the burden on families and society due to inadequate care when needed. Thereby, escalating stigmatisation, homelessness, unmanaged medications, self-harm and harm to other people (Bland et al., 2009). These changes created implications for social workers because inadequate funding and cuts to services limited the way services were delivered. Even though there were principles to guide social work practice in mental health, tension emerged between evidence based practice, recovery principles and the lived experiences of mental health.
The bitter taste of failure is much bitterer than the sweet taste of victory can ever be. This is perhaps one of the biggest reasons why failure scares people much more than victory inspires them. The truth is that there are not many people; rather there are none, who say that they wish to taste failure in life. Everybody wishes to succeed. However, the irony is that the success and failure are not always guaranteed by our efforts or our desires.
