Treatments utilized by counseling professionals such as CBT allows clients to be aware of various events causing their life’s spiral; uninterested clients with court-ordered treatment must make a valid decision for their success while rationalizing personal biases of treatment. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Positive and negative influences burden clients so much that they compromise themselves through careless and difficult situations. According to Kendra Cherry (2011), “Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients to understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors.” CBT assist clients by emphasizing their focus towards channeling energy to connecting dilemmas.

Bowlby began to include evolutionary factors because “children come into the world biologically pre-programmed to form attachments with others, because this will help them survive.” (Mcleod, 2007) Further critics of Bowlby’s work have included Schaffer &Emerson (1964) who posit that”...infants became attached to other people...13% were attached to only one person; some had five or more attachments” (Mcleod, 2007) and Weisner & Gallimore (1977) argue that “mother’s are the exclusive carers in only a very small percentage of human societies; often there are a number of people involved in the care of
Finally, other psychoanalytical concepts will be discussed. Sigmund Freud was the founder of psychosexual and psychoanalytic theory. His psychosexual theory states that erogenous zones differ at various times throughout development (Cervone, & Pervin, 2010). The first stage is the oral stage which sensual gratification focuses on the mouth (Cervone, & Pervin, 2010).
