Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Violent themes, taken in the broadest sense of the word, include the thought of assaulting someone else.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because violent themes, in the broadest sense, encompass the idea of physically attacking or harming someone else. The term "violent themes" refers to any form of content, such as in literature, movies, or video games, that involves aggression, physical force, or harm towards others. This can include actions like fighting, killing, or inflicting pain on another person. Therefore, the statement accurately reflects the definition of violent themes.

    The abnormal obsessional thoughts -  (Select three)

    • A.

      Last longer

    • B.

      Are less intense

    • C.

      Occur more frequently

    • D.

      Harder to dismiss

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Last longer
    C. Occur more frequently
    D. Harder to dismiss
    Explanation
    Abnormal obsessional thoughts typically last longer, occur more frequently, and are harder to dismiss compared to normal thoughts. These thoughts tend to persist for extended periods, repeating themselves frequently, and are difficult to push away or ignore. This is often a characteristic of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or other anxiety disorders where individuals experience intrusive and persistent thoughts that cause distress and interfere with daily functioning.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    OCB does not need to be distinguished from psychotic delusions where the sufferer insists that they are being compelled by mysterious internal forces. This statement is incorrect.

    Another type of personality, the obsessional personality, is prone, under certain types of stress, to develop an obsessive-compulsive neurosis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that individuals with an obsessional personality are more likely to develop an obsessive-compulsive neurosis when exposed to certain types of stress. This implies a correlation between the personality type and the development of the neurosis, making the statement true.

  • 5. 

    Working with clients suffering from OCB means that you are dealing with only behavioural problems.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because OCB stands for Organizational Citizenship Behavior, which refers to voluntary actions that go beyond the formal job requirements and contribute to the overall effectiveness of an organization. It does not necessarily involve dealing with only behavioral problems, but rather encompasses a wide range of positive behaviors such as helping coworkers, volunteering for extra tasks, and supporting the organization's goals.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The treatment options available includes:   (Select three)

    • A.

      Thought-stopping endeavours to directly oppose the intrusion.

    • B.

      Exposure to the repeated presentation of the spoken content of the obsession.

    • C.

      Behavioural psychotherapy to try reshape the thinking process.

    • D.

      Drugs and electrical therapy.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Thought-stopping endeavours to directly oppose the intrusion.
    B. Exposure to the repeated presentation of the spoken content of the obsession.
    D. Drugs and electrical therapy.
    Explanation
    Thought-stopping is a treatment option that aims to directly counteract the intrusive thoughts. Exposure therapy involves repeatedly exposing the individual to the content of their obsession, helping them become desensitized to it. Drugs and electrical therapy are also mentioned as treatment options, although the specific types of drugs or electrical therapy are not specified.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The only problem with OCB is considered to be the abnormal behaviour itself.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that there is only one problem with OCB, which is the abnormal behavior itself. However, this is not true. OCB, or Organizational Citizenship Behavior, is a concept in organizational psychology that refers to voluntary actions by employees that go beyond their formal job requirements. While abnormal behavior may be a potential problem within OCB, it is not the only problem. Other issues such as lack of motivation, poor communication, or inadequate recognition can also impact OCB. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

  • 8. 

    Any ruminations about ruminations should be destructive and negative ones.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that any thoughts or reflections about ruminations should be destructive and negative. However, this is not necessarily true. Ruminations, which refer to deep or prolonged thoughts, can be both positive and negative. They can lead to self-reflection, problem-solving, and personal growth. Thus, the correct answer is False, as ruminations can have both positive and negative aspects.

  • 9. 

    The therapist should motivate the client to -  (Select three)

    • A.

      Endeavour to take note of those situations in which he or she feels particularly bad

    • B.

      Make a positive commitment to attempt to avoid such situations in the future

    • C.

      Note any in which the ruminations appear to be more frequent or more intense

    • D.

      Try to identify any `dismissal tactics', those courses of action that are beneficial in getting away from the negative thought patterns

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Endeavour to take note of those situations in which he or she feels particularly bad
    B. Make a positive commitment to attempt to avoid such situations in the future
    D. Try to identify any `dismissal tactics', those courses of action that are beneficial in getting away from the negative thought patterns
    Explanation
    The therapist should motivate the client to take note of situations in which they feel particularly bad because this can help them become more aware of their triggers and patterns of negative thinking. By making a positive commitment to avoid such situations in the future, the client can actively work towards creating a more positive and supportive environment for themselves. Additionally, identifying dismissal tactics can be helpful in breaking free from negative thought patterns and finding ways to cope and redirect their thinking towards more positive and productive thoughts.

    The second step that can be taken to control the habit is self-awareness.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Self-awareness is not the second step that can be taken to control a habit. While self-awareness is an important aspect of habit control, it is not specifically mentioned as the second step. There may be other steps that need to be taken before focusing on self-awareness, such as identifying triggers or setting goals. Therefore, the statement is false.

    This combination of mindfulness and healthy scepticism would seem to - (Select two)

    • A.

      Act as a brake on the neural activation that underlies low-grade anxiety

    • B.

      Actively generate such thoughts that would appear to prime the circuitry that can inhibit the worry

    • C.

      Actively induce a hyper state that counters the signals the emotional brain is sending throughout the body

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Act as a brake on the neural activation that underlies low-grade anxiety
    B. Actively generate such thoughts that would appear to prime the circuitry that can inhibit the worry
    Explanation
    The combination of mindfulness and healthy skepticism acts as a brake on the neural activation that underlies low-grade anxiety. This means that it helps to reduce or control the brain activity that causes mild anxiety. Additionally, this combination actively generates thoughts that prime the circuitry that can inhibit worry. In other words, it helps to activate the brain's mechanisms that can stop or prevent worrying thoughts from taking over.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that recovery from addiction or a behavioral problem starts when the individual realizes the negative consequences of staying in that state and feels desperate enough to admit their powerlessness and seek help. This implies that recovery requires a level of desperation and acknowledgment of the need for assistance. Therefore, the statement is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Triggers are not behaviours or situations that the client needs to identify and pursue. Instead, triggers are external events or circumstances that can cause a reaction or response from the client. Therefore, the given statement is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    An intervention extends beyond simple stress-management and needs to incorporate a healing process.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that an intervention goes beyond just managing stress and should include a healing process. This implies that interventions should not only address immediate stressors but also focus on the underlying causes and provide support for individuals to heal and recover. Therefore, the answer is true.
