  • 2. 

    A client who has survived using a defence mechanism will:

    • A.

      Possibly feel angry about having continued to use it

    • B.

      Not be keen to let go of something that may have saved them

    Correct Answer
    B. Not be keen to let go of something that may have saved them
    Explanation
    When a client has survived using a defense mechanism, they may not be willing to let go of it because they believe that it has saved them in the past. They may feel a sense of security and protection from the defense mechanism, making it difficult for them to consider giving it up. Additionally, they may also feel anger towards themselves for having relied on the defense mechanism for so long, as they may recognize that it is not a healthy or sustainable coping strategy.

    Denial is where painful or traumatic memories are forgotten or pushed out of consciousness.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Denial is not the process of forgetting or pushing painful memories out of consciousness. Instead, it is a defense mechanism where individuals refuse to acknowledge or accept the reality of a situation or their own feelings about it. This can be a way of coping with distressing emotions or avoiding the truth. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

  • 4. 

    The person appears to regress in age, back to an earlier age group or stage of development, as a reaction to trauma or stress.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. Regression is a defense mechanism in which a person reverts to an earlier stage of development or age group as a response to trauma or stress. This regression is a way to cope with the overwhelming emotions or situations that the person is facing. It allows them to temporarily escape from the current difficulties and retreat to a more familiar and comfortable state.

  • 5. 

    Humour is useful if used correctly in therapy, but watch out for the client that ‘laughs’ away problems, for this is a form of suppression, not cure.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Humor can be a helpful tool in therapy when used appropriately. It can create a positive and comfortable atmosphere, allowing clients to open up and engage in the therapeutic process. However, it is important to be cautious of clients who use humor as a defense mechanism to avoid addressing their problems. Laughing away problems may provide temporary relief, but it does not address the underlying issues or lead to long-term healing. Therefore, the statement that humor used inappropriately can be a form of suppression rather than a cure is true.

    CBT is useful in evaluating the balance, since it encourages self-awareness and analysis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is a form of therapy that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. While CBT can be useful in evaluating various aspects of a person's mental health, it is not specifically designed for evaluating balance. The statement suggests that CBT is useful in evaluating balance, but this is not accurate. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    CBT 'errors in thinking' include: (Select three)

    • A.

      Catastrophising

    • B.

      Black and grey thinking

    • C.

      Fortune-telling

    • D.

      Mind reading

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Catastrophising
    C. Fortune-telling
    D. Mind reading
    Explanation
    CBT, or cognitive-behavioral therapy, focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns. Catastrophising, fortune-telling, and mind reading are all examples of cognitive distortions or "errors in thinking" that can be addressed in CBT. Catastrophising involves blowing things out of proportion and imagining the worst-case scenarios. Fortune-telling refers to predicting negative outcomes without any evidence. Mind reading involves assuming what others are thinking or feeling without any concrete evidence. By recognizing and challenging these cognitive distortions, individuals can develop more realistic and balanced thinking patterns.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    This statement suggests that labelling involves making judgments about people, categorizing them as either "good" or "bad." It also implies that the person answering the question is included in this process of making judgments. Therefore, the correct answer is True, as it aligns with the given explanation.

This implies that the exercises are designed to educate the client and give them more options, ultimately allowing them to have more control over their decisions. Therefore, the statement is true.
