When a person suffers with psychological distress, the way in which they interpret situations becomes skewed, which in turn has a negative impact on the actions they take. CBT aims to help people become aware of when they make negative interpretations, and of behavioral patterns which reinforce the distorted thinking. Cognitive Therapy helps people to develop alternative ways of thinking and behaving which reduce the psychological distress. Cognitive behavioral Therapy is, in fact, an umbrella term for many different therapies that share some common elements.

Freud states that people who experience painful events didn’t necessarily forget the traumatic event but repressed it into their unconscious meaning that Freud thought that the unconscious was both a cause and effect of repression. He proposed that the unconscious is divided into 3
The cognitive explanation for OCD starts from the observation that everybody at some time has undesirable thoughts that they would be ashamed to admit (e.g. most of us worry at times about touching something dirty). The theory suggests that people with OCD have a ‘cognitive bias’, irrational thought patters. The cognitive therapy for OCD helps the individual change their irrational thinking by encouraging them to use counter-statements in order to reverse negative, irrational thinking. For example ‘if the worst happened is it true that I would not be able to handle it?’, this would enable negative and irrational thoughts to be dispelled.
Finally, the paper will evaluate two strategies to overcome social biases. Social biases are harmful and can cripple interactions between individuals.

Writer, Christine Rosen, in her article "The Myth of Multitasking" expounds on the effects of multitasking. Rosen's purpose is to convey the idea that multitasking and self-distractions are detrimental to a person's all around well-being and makes wisdom difficult to be gained when a person's attention is in multiple places. Multitasking is something that everyone utilizes, sometime some more often than others. Rosen used her article to justify her theory that multitasking is detrimental to one's self; she establishes her reasoning with examples of studies done by psychologists, neurologists, and other credible sources. Rosen begins her article by quoting Lord Chesterfield where he offered the following advice "There is time enough for everything in the course of the day, if you do but one thing at once, but there is not time enough in the year, if you will do two things at a time".

(b) Individuals who were psychologically maltreated would exhibit significantly higher levels of depression, anxiety, and anger than individuals who were not psychologically maltreated. (c)
Labelling theory suggests that “deviants are those people who have been successfully labelled as such by others” (Kendall, Murray, Linden, 2003:206). By labelling others as deviants, self identity is created. When people accept a negative label that has been assigned to them, “the label may contribute to the type of behaviour it initially was meant to control” (Edwin Lemert 1951:207). To encourage traditionalism and
