consequences. Then have the student attempt to identify the belief that intervenes in each case. Lead a discussion in a search for alternatives to any self-defeating or irrational beliefs. l. My professor makes me so angry when he will not call on me in class when I have the correct answer. 2. I don’t like being around Linda, she makes me very depressed. 3. I had a tee time for 2:52 but my playing companion never made the time. 4. I get so depressed thinking about the final in my psychology class. 5. I scored 20 on my ACT; I will get into a good university. Active Learning Activity 15.10 - Debate After your last lecture on therapies, lead a debate concerning the most effective method. By this point in the course, students generally have a good understanding of psychological principles and therapy techniques. If time allows, encourage your students to conduct a formal debate with pros and cons on several issues related to therapy. If you arrange ahead of time, most colleges and universities have debate teams that are often interested in practicing their skills. You can ask at the beginning of the term for the debate team to come to your introductory course and present a formal debate related to therapy.

Have each student or group of students take responsibility for surveying a certain section of these listings (i.e. clinical psychologists, MFCCs, Counselors, Psychiatrists). If your students or one of their friends needed therapy how would they select the "right" person from such an abundance of choices? Have the class generate their ideas on how to choose a therapist before you offer your own guidelines or handouts on locally recommended sources of help. Brain-Based Learning Activity 15.2 - Systematic Desensitization Experience Ask each student to think of an experience in their life that scared them a good bit, but be sure to spell out that you don't want them to select an experience of deep personal trauma. Once the student has thought of a specific experience have them select something about that experience that they saw or felt or heard, something that could serve as a trigger or representation of the painful experience.

    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.
