CBT has many advantages in treating depression, such as helping patients recognize and address negative thoughts. However, there are limitations and CBT is not always accepted as a viable treatment option for some. This paper addresses the goals of CBT in treating depression, the advantages and limitations of CBT for depression and explains how the therapy works to treat depression. Depression and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 1 Depression and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy “Since its introduction in the 1970s, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for depression has become one of the most widely investigated and practiced forms of therapy for depression” (Tang 2005).

This article was one that I really found interesting. Its focus was mainly on the origins and effects of the lesions that accompany MS for many patients. But that was not the most exciting part for me. The last section that talked about the therapeutic potential of antioxidant protection gave me new interest on how discovering the origins of a symptom of MS lead to a way that the MS could potentially be
Numerous professionals within the team are trained in CBT, and use CBT to treat a wide range of issues including self-harm; this is where my interest derives. Through involvement it proved CBT to be efficacious in treating depression and problem solving ability among others thus I have decided to research further into the effectiveness of CBT in the treatment of self-harm. Through research it is evident that self-harming behaviour is frequent among adolescents and young adults and these behaviours are not only challenging on their own but are major risk factors for future suicide (Robinson et al, 2011). “Deliberate self-harm among young people is an important focus of policy and practice internationally. Nonetheless, there is little reliable comparative international information on its extent or characteristics” (Madge et al, 2008:667).
Case studies allow for observations of unusual problems and allow for new techniques for therapy to be created. Disadvantages: It is said that biased observers record case studies and that they rely on subjective evidence (Axia College, 2003). Case studies do not fix everyone's problems. They do show a record of what a treatment worked on one patient, but this does not mean the same treatment will work on the next patient. Correlational Method: Advantages: This type of method is used to look for relationships between variables with three different possible results, a negative correlation, a positive correlation, or no correlation.
PTSD Case Study Learning Team C PSYCH/515 May 10, 2012 Professor Barbara Steffens Abstract Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that will affect many people every year. So far, statistics have shown that 51% of women are experiencing PTSD symptoms while 60% of men are experiencing symptoms of this disorder. However, clinically, women are at a higher rate for developing the PTSD disorder; than men. This disorder is basically trauma that is still in experience from a situation of previous anxiety in one’s life that left a traumatic scar. PTSD disorder can develop within a child during childhood trauma and abuse, or can result from traumatic situations as an adult of an individual.
CBT like nursing itself is not a new phenomenon but one which has its roots based in the 1960’s where it was developed by people such as Aaron, T. Beck who was a practicing Psychiatrist at that time. Beck et al recognised how CBT (know as Cognitive Therapy at the time) could help to resolve some of the “automatic thoughts” that occurred during dialogue with patients, Westbrook et al (2007). CBT has since its implementation gained a credible basis as a positive patient intervention especially for patients suffering from depression and anxiety. This credibility comes from a history of scientific trials which have proven its efficacy as both a standalone treatment as well as a complimentary one, DoH (2008). With this proven efficacy CBT became a tool which was used in Pain Management Programmes (PMPs) back in the early and late eighties both in an outpatient and inpatient setting.
Abstract In recent years, many countries around the world have successfully managed to reduce the use of restraint in mental health facilities. This investigation aims to research the various effects that restraint may have on mental health clients and the alternative interventions that can be utilised by nurses and other health care staff. In order to investigate these topics, keywords were entered into a comprehensive database and a variety of literature from a wide range of years was critically analysed. Both opposing and supporting views on the use of restraint were taken into account and used in this investigation. Research found that there were both negative effects as well as positive outcomes from the use of restraint however the negative effects far outweighed the positive outcomes.
Medicines have advanced so much there is treatments. Voluntary and compulsory detention treatment can help reduce the symptoms; this would provide the patient with relief. There are also several therapies that can be tried out. E,g family therapy and art therapy. There is also a treatment of cognitive behavioural therapy.
