12 Therapies to be discussed
Psychodynamic Behavior Therapy Cognitive Therapy Existential-Humanistic Group Therapies Biomedical Therapies

13 Psychodynamic Therapies
Developed by Sigmund Freud Explores unconscious motivations and conflicts in neurotic, anxiety-ridden individuals Before exploring techniques, let’s review some of Freud’s main tenets of how he viewed behavior

14 Psychoanalysis Breuer and Freud: Freudian Theory Structure of the Mind
The “Talking Cure” Freudian Theory Structure of the Mind The Mind’s Protective Mechanisms Stages of Psychosexual Development If this picture is in the book, I’d like to keep it in.

15 20th Century traditions Psychoanalytic Theory-
Mesmer, Charcot, Freud and Breuer Discovered unconscious Id, ego superego (structural theory) Defense mechanisms Psychosexual stages of development

16 Ego id The Structure of the Mind ID Libido Pleasure Principle
Primary Process Thinking id Is the ego/id picture something you made up?

17 Ego id The Structure of the Mind ID EGO Reality Principle
“Executive of Personality” Secondary Process Thinking id

18 Ego id The Structure of the Mind SUPEREGO Rules / Standards of Conduct
Right vs Wrong id

19 Ego id Defense Mechanisms Ego’s Battles Keep Id in Check
Anxiety results with inability to resolve inner conflicts between the unconscious, irrational impulses of the id AND the superego id

20 Ego id Defense Mechanisms
Anxiety -inner conflicts between id AND the superego Thus 1 Goal of tx – intrapsychic harmony Strengthen ego Reduce demands of superego Increase awareness of the id id

21 Ego id Defense Mechanisms Displacement - kick dog
Reaction formation – do opposite Most important =Repression – very important in handling conflicts messages from the unconscious that something is wrong id

22 Ego id Defense Mechanisms
Repression – very important in handling conflicts Goals – Bring repressed thoughts to consciousness ; Gain insight about the relationship between current symptoms and repressed conflicts id

23 Psychodynamic Therapies
Freudian psychoanalysis Intensive and prolonged technique for exploring unconscious motivations and conflicts Insight therapy Therapist guides patient toward discovering insights (increased awareness) between present symptoms and past origins YAVIS Takes long time

24 Psychodynamic Therapies
Main Techniques employed include: Free association Thoughts, wishes, physical sensations, and mental images as they occur volunteer Catharsis Expressing strongly felt but usually repressed emotions

25 Psychodynamic Therapies
Resistance- understanding the role of Barrier between unconscious and conscious(e.g., sex life,anger) Dream analysis – “unconscious”; manifest (openly visible) and latent (hidden content) Transference Countertransference

26 Psychodynamic Therapies
Neo-Freudian therapies Borne out of reaction to Freud’s theory Kept some main tenets but added a diff twist

27 Neo-Freudian therapies
Harry Stack Sullivan Added importance of social relationships Need for acceptance, respect and love “troubled interpersonal relationships” and societal pressures Melanie Klein Death instinct - aggression Building blocks of how people experience the world emerge from their relations to loved and hated objects

28 Psychoanalysis Descendents: Heinz Kohut
Emphasis on self ( and how others and objects play a role in shaping our interpretation of self) Founder of Object Relations Object relations theory Building blocks of how people experience the world emerge from their relations to loved and hated objects

29 Premise of Behavior Therapy
All (most) behavior is learned Focus on observable behaviors Abnormal behavior is learned similar to normal behaviors via conditioning and learning Thus therapy applies principles of conditioning and reinforce to modify unwanted behavior

30 Premise of Behavior Therapy
Works best with specific behaviors Could care less about underlying cause Symptom substitute? Research indicates “no” Let’s briefly review some of the main tenets

31 Behavioral Model Important to understanding the role of counterconditioning Pavlov- classical conditioning (UCS,UCR,CS,) Some Sexual disorders begin Men and shoe example

32 Conditioning Theory Pavlov Dog, salivation, bell CSCR UCSUCR
CS UCSUCR/CR Tone + Meat Powder -> Salivation CS UCS UCR Tone > Salivation CS CR

33 Counterconditioning New response is conditioned to replace a maladaptive response Types of counterconditioning include: Systematic desensitization Implosion Flooding Aversion Therapy

34 Behavioral Model Watson- systematic desensitization
B.F. Skinner- science of human behavior should be based on observable events -operant conditioning

35 Conditioning Theory When behavior is reinforced – either through pleasure, reward, or removal of some unpleasant stimulus – it is likely to be REPEATED. Negative consequences of a behavior through unpleasant results, pain, or loss of rewarding stimuli tend to DECREASE THE FREQUENCY of the behavior.

36 Conditioning Theory Operant Conditioning
Response that is voluntarily emitted is learned as a result of how it operates on the environment Thorndike –Law of Effect Learned as a result of environmental consequences that follow that behavior, either positive or negative

37 Reinforcement Punishment Conditioning Theory
by definition, the “targeted” behavior increases Punishment by definition, the “targeted” behavior decreases

Positive Reinforcement Behavior increases Negative Reinforcement Positive Punishment Behavior decreases Negative Punishment

39 Behavior Therapies Thus, Behavior therapy (behavior modification)
Systematic use of principles of learning to increase or decrease the frequency of behaviors

40 Behavior Therapies Counterconditioning Systematic desensitization
Substitute a new response for a maladaptive one Systematic desensitization Reciprocal inhibition Incompatible behaviors cannot occur simultaneously Client is taught to prevent arousal of anxiety by confronting feared stimulus while relaxed

41 Behavior Therapies Systematic desensitization Gradual Steps Employed
Identify anxiety provoking stimuli via hierarchy Deep-muscle relaxation Desensitization – pairing of weakest stimuli (visually) with relaxation Impotence Stage fright Test anxiety

42 Behavior Therapies Implosion therapy Flooding (in –vivo)
Opposite of SD Exposes client to most anxiety-provoking stimuli through visual imagery in safe setting Karen Flooding (in –vivo) Clients are exposed to stimuli most frightening to them physically rather than via imagery More effective than SD in some cases (e.g., agoraphbia) Key to ALL is “ EXPOSURE

43 Behavior Therapies Aversion therapy
Attractive stimulus is paired with noxious stimulus (uses counterconditioning procedures) Cigarette smoking (rubber band around wrist), child molesters (shock tx); self-injurious behaviors (mild shock)

44 Behavior Therapies Contingency management
Changing behavior by modifying its consequences Positive Reinforcement Strategies Token economies (autistic child) Extinction Strategies Dysfunctional beh maintained by unrecognized reinforcers

45 Behavior Therapies Social-learning therapy Imitation of models
Clients observe models’ desirable behaviors being reinforced phobias Imitation of models Participant modeling ( on film or in person see success w/feared stimuli) Social-skills training Behavioral rehearsal Assertiveness training

46 Behavioral Model Cognitive-behavioral or social learning model
A B C’ S of EMOTIONS A Perceptions (Activating Event – anything you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch.) B Self-Talk C Feelings Actions Consequences

47 Cognitive Therapies Cognitive therapy
Attempts to change feelings and behaviors by changing the way a client thinks about or perceives significant life experiences

48 Cognitive Therapies Cognitive therapy
Abnormal behavior/emotional distress start with what you think Goal – change your thought process

49 Cognitive Therapies Cognitive behavior modification Tenets
Focus on the present We all engage in self-talk You are what you tell yourself You are guided by what you believe Faulty thinking can lead to unproductive or dysfunctional behaviors There is power in thought, how do you use your power?

50 Cognitive Therapies Cognitive behavior modification
Combines cognitive emphasis on thoughts and attitudes, and behavioral emphasis on changing performance Unacceptable behavior modified via cognitive restructuring Change negative self-statements into constructive coping statements Key to process -First identify thought content Fosters self-efficacy and + expectations about your ability to cope and deal effectively

51 Cognitive Therapies Changing false beliefs
Cognitive therapy for depression Replace faulty patterns of thinking by substituting more effective problem solving techniques Aaron Beck (time permitting, take BDI) Identify warped thinking –learn more realistic ways to formulate his experiences Maintained b/c unaware of negative automatic thoughts

52 Beck’s Cognitive Model of Depression
1.Thinking (content) becomes negative(re: self, world, future) (past, present, future) 2.Systematic bias and distortion in info processing results cognitive distortions and errors in reasoning

53 Cognitive Therapies Changing false beliefs Aaron Beck
Challenge basic assumptions about functioning Evaluate evidence client has for and against accuracy of automatic thoughts Reattribute blame to situational factors rather than to patient’s incompetence Discuss alternative solutions to complex tasks that could lead to failure experiences

54 Cognitive Therapies Changing false beliefs
Rational-emotive therapy (RET) Albert Ellis 1.Basis of Undesirable behavior/reactions is “irrational beliefs” 2. Beliefs are powerful in controlling our behavior 3. Goal – teach clients to recognize “shoulds, oughts, and musts

55 Cognitive Therapies Changing false beliefs
Rational-emotive therapy (RET) Albert Ellis 4. faulty beliefs are openly and strongly disputed; very confrontational 5. Increase sense of worth

56 Humanistic Approaches
Jung and Adler- broke from psychoanalysis and are thought of as humanistic today Maslow- self-actualization; hierarchy of needs Rogers- person-centered therapy; unconditional positive regard

57 Existential-Humanistic Therapies
Human-potential movement Release the potential of the average human being for greater levels of performance and greater richness of experience

58 Existential-Humanistic Therapies
Client-centered therapy Emphasizes the healthy psychological growth of the individual Unconditional positive regard Gestalt therapy Focuses on the ways to unite mind and body to make a person whole
