Rational emotive therapy (RET) is a physiotherapeutic treatment that suggests that lots of emotional issues are caused by irrational beliefs. The approach was developed in 1950's by Albert Ellis who proposed that, defective beliefs & unreality are the major causes of unhappiness & self de-eating habits among people. This was after conducting a research where they came up with irrational views, with each as an irrational unrealistic. This core views included, u must treat me if not I cannot bear, I must perform well to get the approval of others who are thought about important &, any condition must be the way I need it if not, I cannot live with such an horrible & horrible. RET is an active therapist whose main objective is to challenge the thought method in changing irrational thinking. An assessment before the beginning of the therapy is important. This will focus on the background information of the client such as drug history, sex, psychological history, schooling history, employment & information on criminology, which acts as a base for diagnosis (Mulhauser, 2009).
Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a short time psychotherapeutic treatment that assists patients to understand feelings & thoughts that control behavior. There is ways in which mental health professionals approaches CBT, cognitive therapy, multimodal therapy & rational emotive theory. (CBT) usually starts by aiding the client to identify & understand the issue they is going through in a stage called functional analysis. Causes of the issues & how to deal with them are then tacked under the second part. This therapeutic treatment has been used to treat lots of disorders such as depression, anxiety, & a variety of maladaptive behaviors (Wagner, 2009).
This is a method of cognitive intervention where the therapists employ skillful issue solving & rewarding methods. This therapy is carried out by teachers, specialists & professions in solving cognitive issues in clients. Similar parts are used when administering skillful questioning & emphasizing in issue solving. Like RET & CBT, this method begins with issue recognition where the client is given the chance to recognize & practice various issue situations. Actual & theoretical issues are used for the client to know the existence of the issue. The second stage is for the client to document how & when the issue occurred. The following stage is for the therapist to guide the client through positive thinking &, practice with corrective feedback & positive reinforcement. Options on how to solve the disorder are developed in relation to the issue. This can be done through brainstorming the solutions in answering questions like, "what are your feasible solutions" (Riccomini et al, 2009).
The therapist ought to then assist the client to identify the most effective solution through evaluating the results of the given options. The client puts in practice the solution to see how effective it is in solving the issue. Skillful questioning &, emphasizing is carried out in little groups or on client- therapist basis. The length of the sessions will be contingent on the severity of the issue, & the client's efforts. Other activities involved under this therapy are, peer modeling, mentoring or behavioral rehearsal.Skillful questioning &, emphasizing choice, happens in a case where clients & therapists pick the working reinforcement for the client. The person on treatment is then allowed to practice reading out their issue statements in query form, & responding to the probes, for example why do I am liking sleeping in class?', then they learns to read the responses, through a query that goes Ãwhat are your feasible solutions'. In answering these questions, the client increases the problem-solving skill on his own, hence social manipulation. The client is introduced with a variety of questions to reply & actively participate in role playing. The therapist ought to then assess the consequences of each given answer & teach the client how to point out the most effective answer (Riccomini et al, 2009).
The client & the therapists can set a deadline on the completion of issue solving sessions. Any improvement on the side of the client, in reducing the aggression or the issue, is rewarded. This method works more or less like the cognitive behavioral Interventions (CBI). This method has been used to check drop out from schools in youth in immense urban high schools, due to depression issues leaning difficulties & mental retardation.
Adolescents with behavioral or emotional disorders have benefited from this method of cognitive intervention. The main differences between skillful questioning & emphasizing & other cognitive interventions methods is that the latter incorporates rewarding of clients for decrease in the behavior & proper use of issue solving skills.
