After conversing with my friend about his unsuccessful life I have decided to recommend for him to see a therapist that can change his self-defeating thoughts. I told him about cognitive therapy because the practice is self-associative to ultimately alter the way he thinks and the way he acts. Cognitive behavior therapy is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the important role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. My best friend stated that talking will now help reduce his negative thoughts about himself but this untrue. His statement illuminates why he needs cognitive therapy because cognitive therapy is going to change his way of mind. “Talking won’t help. The more I talk about my problems the more I think about my problems. The more I think about my problems the more depressed I get”, this statement by my friend is not an unalterable ladder of anxious thoughts. Cognitive therapy makes people learn to replace to catastrophizing with more realistic appraisals and to practice that counter their problem. An example could be the recent Psychology exam my friend barely passed. It is saddening for him because he wanted a better grade, but with cognitive therapy he can talk about his problems and find out why he received that grade, but instead of saying his outcome in a pessimistic tone, he can say it in more optimistic tone. Such as “I got a 69 on my test but if I study harder I can get a higher grade.” The therapy has altered his way of thinking and know that my friend knows how to receive a better grade he can put it into practice which will ultimately change the way he acts. Of course Cognitive therapy is not just limited to education but in other aspects of his life that are creating these “sad” thoughts in my friend’s head. Now of course I expect the therapist to have effective, and efficient methods that he will use for Cognitive therapy, especially since therapy is time-limited. One of the methods I imagine the therapist will use is the Socratic Method. This method will allow the therapist to gain a good understanding of my friend and his concerns. Usually therapist will encourage their clients to ask themselves questions of doubt such as “Are they really laughing at me? Or could they be laughing at…

Sigmund Freud, one of the founders of the Psychoanalytic theory said he was able to cure most of his patients from what back then they called "hysteria" by putting that theory into practice. In 1885 Sigmund Freud with the help of his friend/colleague (Josef Breuer) developed the Psychoanalytic theory and put it into practice, the first patient to receive this "talk therapy" was a lady called 'Anna O' her real name was (Bertha Pappenheim). Anna O was Josef Breuer's patient and…
In our text books, cognitive dissonance is defined as the inner tension that a consumer
experiences after recognizing an inconsistency between behavior and values or opinions. Which
to me means a feeling you get when you believe one thing, and then something contradicts that
belief and you’re left with the decision to make a change.
The post-purchase evaluation process is a list of steps that can help consumers and
marketers avoid cognitive dissonance. Consumers and marketers…

People who act like this may be sent to a therapist who will take the cognitive therapy approach. Cognitive therapy should give these kinds of people with negative thoughts…

Cleopatra: A Sign of the Times

Cleopatra VII, the last reigning queen of Egypt, has intrigued us for centuries. Her story is one that has been told many times, and the many different and vastly varied representations of her and her story are solely based on the ways in which men and society have perceived…
