6 September 2007 PSYC 3313. Sec 202. Summary: Jacobsen et al article According to this article, behavioral activation (BA) is replacing previous methods used to treat depression. BA focuses on external factors, such as uncontrolled events, that lead to the root of depression, while still recognizing genetic factors that may be linked. The main idea is that the depression stems from problems in a person’s life, and not from inside the individual. For treatment, therapists rely on two models: TRAP and TRAC. Both are acronyms for Trigger, Response, and the AP is the avoidance patter, while AC is the alternative coping. Understanding and applying these models to individual cases an important part of BA. Psychologists know people experience depression on a range of levels, so the therapist must construct these two treatment models on a case-by-case basis. What may work for one person could be too challenging and unfeasible for another.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
