Homework

What Can Be Done to Reduce Human Error Either at Work on the Roads or at Home

Treatment is focused on the now and is action-oriented and practical, aimed at gaining confidence in facing real-life issues.
Before treatment starts, self-assessment forms filled by the patient help determine what problems the patient is facing now along with a history of treatment/problems. There is mutual agreement on problems to focus on and the level of symptoms. This way, progress can be tracked across treatment. There is comprehensive information on several issues available through books and other media, which the patient is advised to access. There is a lot of information on anxiety, depression, and other conditions, to keep updated on. Periodic reviews to keep the treatment in perspective and to understand what is going on and the possible need to fulfil small goals for a positive outcome. Without feeling overawed, the patient is made to sense his emotions, as they are the starting point for all experience. (Perry, Tarrier, Morriss, McCarthy and Limb et al 1999)
Key to this discussion is the fact that the most successful post-therapy patients are those who do ‘ self-help homework’ outside of therapy to help gain self-confidence. The therapist will devise interventions and tasks to help the patient deal with negative thoughts.
Unlike other therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is more structured and tries to make the most out of a session with the patient. Treatment can be more effective in correcting even manic depression because it uses homework in therapy to build self-reliance and a sense of respect (Garety and Jolley et al 2000). CBT therapists, in fact, help patients to think for themselves and make them feel the way they think they should – and that is, in rational agreement with the situation. Homework between sessions sorts out dysfunctional thinking and self-awareness are created. People who are willing to try out homework therapy often lose their inhibitions faster during and after treatment than those who feel unable to. For example, someone who is under depression might suffer from the feeling that they are not able to socialize. Therapy would include suggestions that an attempt, may be made to go out and meet relatives or friends and progressive therapy and homework exercises in relating to other people will point the client to the direction of remission of symptoms. A simulated exercise under controlled conditions will not be so effective. (Primakoff, Epstein &amp. Covi et al 1986).&nbsp.
