did not make a rational decision and my nephew then had to face the consequences. Words: 200 Hi Lorie, Thank you for sharing the article about dreams. I have always found dreams fascinating and would love to be able to analyze them. I would say that I am someone who dreams a lot, but I have a very difficult time remembering them. Very much like yourself, I have not been remembering my dreams very well lately. It may be because I am going to bed exhausted and stressed with work, maybe because I am not getting as much sleep as I typically do or maybe it has something to do with my recent change of environment. After reading the article about dreams, I think I will start keeping a notebook by my bedside to be able to make notes of the dreams I remember. I am curious to see if this practice will allow me to remember more of them and with time remember more details about them. I believe that there are a lot of hidden messages in dreams and if I could start remembering them better, I could use that knowledge to my advantage. Words: 179 Bulkeley, K. (n.d.).

Then I took a minute and thought to myself, phobias are similar to anxiety and anxiety if often treated with medication. I believe that some pharmacological treatment may be beneficial for the individual in order to help decrease the feelings of the phobia and then be able to work on it through counselling or another intervention.

for 4 years. Within the first 2 years, 59 individuals had stopped treatment for at least one month and after 4 years, when the medicine was stopped or altered, most individuals saw their symptoms come back. This is a great example that pharmacological intervention should not be used on its own and that it could be much more beneficial if assisted with therapy. Words: 156 Boer, J. A. (2000). Social anxiety disorder/social phobia: Epidemiology, diagnosis, neurobiology, and treatment. Comprehensive Psychiatry, 41 (6), 405-415. doi:10.1053/comp.2000.16564 Hi Jennifer, I also agree with the strengths and weaknesses of this perspective. It is great that with this perspective the client can decide to take control of their environment and make the changes necessary for a positive outcome. The downfall to this approach is that there are no genetic factors involved and they do play a large role in personalities. Bleindorn, Klander, Riemann, Angleitney and Spinath (2009) discuss that 40-60% of personality traits are from genetic origins, which means that the other 40-60% would be based on environment. This makes it for a pretty equal balance between environment and genetics, thus is it important to keep genetics in mind.

    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.
