1. Hello Dr. Bolina and Class,

I don’t think that one mode of therapy is superior to another. As we are all complex and unique individuals, different modes of therapy are going to be more beneficial for different people or different situations. Group therapy is often used for addictions, because people help each other by sharing similar experiences. Family therapy might be more beneficial for a child or teenager because family influence is much stronger than for an adult living alone. Each mode of therapy has it’s uses and benefits. A couple wanting to improve their relationship and communication together wouldn’t seek individual but couples therapy. Each person and situation is unique and the mode of therapy should be chosen to fit that person’s needs. Family therapy.


2. I don’t think that any one mode is superior to the others, it just all depends on what type of therapy is best suited for the patient. For individuals suffering from depression, individual therapy may be what is needed, it could help if the patient could speak candidly, not having to worry what others think. If a person has an eating disorder, then group therapy may be what is best because the individual can get support from others in the same situation. Couples therapy works when marriages are in trouble, it is needed so that the individuals can come together to work out their problems. Family therapy helps when a patient has problems that may be caused by situations in the family, or maybe they are a disruption to the family and everyone needs to work together. It all really depends on the situation, who is involved, and what goals are needing to be accomplished.


3. What is the biopsychosocial approach?  Give an example (s) How does it apply to clinical psychology?



Please use text book only for references.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
