Communicating effectively incorporates relaying oral and subtle cues in an appropriate manner. Scenario number two involves a passive approach. When Pamela had concerns about Brigite’s testing results, she decided not to communicate those concerns. Instead, she conducts a retest. Some reasons for Pamela’s avoidance might include, “fear, anxiety, timidity, inhibition, hurt, self-denial, helplessness, and physical and emotional stress” (Hansten & Jackson, 2009, p. 279).
Some thoughts and behaviors may cause a person some discomfort and are suppressed into the unconscious as not to cause anxious feels when they are recalled to the conscious mind. We try not to dwell on thought that cause us anxiety or discomfort so we try to put unhealthy thoughts somewhere where we do not have to think about them. The conscious mind is where we are now. Awake, alert and communicating with others and we are aware of what we are doing and why. The two types of consciousness our text discusses; are the perceptual consciousness and the mental structure of our brain.
Are Blocked and Recovered Memories Valid Phenomena? PSYCH/515 Kelly Gray-Smith Are Blocked and Recovered Memories Valid Phenomena? Introduction Some people in life have experienced an event so traumatic that the person will seek to avoid memories of the event as a way to cope with what has happened.

(Yalom 1980) Existential therapy operates on the belief that inner conflict within a person is due to that individual's perception and fear of the very process of existing and of the inevitability of death . The existential therapist will not attempt to provide answers to clients but rather to allow them to accept the way things are, It is about accepting all given situations, good or bad, for what they are and just letting it be.

Yalom agreed with the psychodynamic theory that, “energy is dissipated in an attempt to ward off anxiety” (Yalom, 1980), although he thinks most of the process goes on outside of the conscious. He does not agree with Freud’s aggressive and sexual impulse theory, but instead focuses on being aware of the individual’s existence causing them anxiety. The reality of existence heightens one’s awareness of “uncertainty, pain, freedom and meaninglessness.” (Cooper, 2003). Yalom says of existence,
Outline and evaluate systematic desensitisation Treatments based on the behavioural approach seek to replace maladaptive behaviours with adaptive and more appropriate behaviours. Systematic desensitisation is a behaviour therapy developed to counteract phobias and is based on classical conditioning. There are three stages; the first stage is about getting the client to relax. They teach the client to relax through progressive relaxation training, where they learn breathing exercises are how to use muscle control to their advantage. The idea behind this is that it is impossible to experience two opposite emotions at the same time – both to feel fear and relaxation together at any give time.
FT is designed to help the addict come to an understanding of what forgiveness is with a clear definition, and what it also does not mean, in order to give the addict the opportunity to let go of past hurts. The hypothesis in this article is that treatment for drug dependence and alcohol would show less depression, anxiety, anger, and vulnerability in hopes to build self esteem and lesson relapse when compared to the treatment that only focuses the awareness of anger and dealing with it in a more constructive way.

I am inclined to define incivility as behavior that does not comply with The Golden Rule, which essentially states either of the following: 1) Positive Form: One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself. 2) Negative Form: One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated. This concept can be explained from the perspective of: 1) Psychology: empathizing with others. 2) Philosophy: perceiving their neighbor as self.

For instance if Jake had come in with a looking worried, accompanied with a rocking motion to self soothe himself, it wouldn't take long for a psychologist to visually observe his upset behavior may be linked to anxiety Therapy: The Behavior therapy might Include thinking of what exactly induces the anxiety and the nervous behavior and then challenging it. Behavior doesn't seem to really touch the mind, so treating anxiety (Anxiety being more of a state of mind, with added on behaviors) with only a behavioral approach would not be the best solution.
