Pretend that you are a practicing therapist or physician. Choose the approach you prefer (e.g., psychodynamic, behavioral, or biological), and pick a specific disorder (e.g., phobia or major depression) that interests you. Suppose that a patient with this disorder walks into your office asking for treatment. What would you do?

  1. How would you know what disorder the patient has? (What main symptoms should a patient with this disorder show?)
  2. How would you go about treating this patient? Discuss the specific methods you would use (e.g., free association or drug therapy) and their advantages and potential drawbacks.
  3. How would you decide whether the treatment was working? (Keep in mind the approach you have chosen.)
  4. How might practical issues (e.g., patient rights, limited time) interfere with the patient's treatment?
