The therapist encourages the client to replace the irrational thoughts with more rational ones (Corey 2017). Beliefs that require the client to think they “must” are rigid and constricting, and often leave the client feeling depressed or trapped within their own life. As aforementioned, this therapeutic technique holds strong to the notion that the client contributes to their problems, and therefore, can contribute to solutions/changes. Therapists who apply this theory have four specific guidelines, or steps, that are helpful in conducting therapy. The first step is to help the client understand his or her irrational thoughts and how they have included the phrases “should” and “must” into their cognitive vocabulary.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy helps people change their negative thought patterns and recognize any form of trigger that may be making their depression worse. Interpersonal therapy help people understand and work through troubled relationships that may have caused their depression or make it worse. Psychotherapy is also used to help people with anxiety disorders, but medication is also used to help treat them. But in order to be effective, the therapy must be directed at a person’s specific anxiety and needs to be tailored to his/her need. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), as well is used to help those with anxiety.

Cognitive therapy uses looking at the clients thought processes to get closer look at their abnormal ideals and works on finding a better way to thinking about life.

Nina suffers from many disturbs, that get worse and worse for her, because she starts affect her not only mentally, but also physically. In this case a psychiatrist would be better suited psychological professional to treat her problems. In order to this, the psychiatrist would have administered a Psychoanalysis. This is a theory and therapy based on the work of Sigmund Freud that stresses the importance of early childhood experiences. Nina had an apparent disorder, and Psychoanalysis best explain, and studies these types of
Cognitive therapy has two steps. The first step allows a patient to form clear ideas based on his or her own thoughts, attitudes, and expectations. These clear ideas reveal and change false and stressful beliefs patients have, because situations do not cause problems alone, but the importance of them to patients cause issues as well (“Cognitive Behavioral Therapy” 2-3). The second step in cognitive therapy allows people to learn new ways to replace the dangerous thought patterns of over-generalizations, also known as drawing exaggerated negative conclusions from situations. Changing the old behavioral habits, and practicing new ones allow patients to have more realistic and less harmful thoughts, letting them think clearly and control their own thought patterns.
Those negative emotions activate thoughts that we are aware of which then leads to the path of addiction. The goal for CBT is to change the irrational thinking; how the client thinks about themselves along with their feelings. It is also good for people with depression, anxiety, and other mental
The research I have done on the subject seems to point to cognitive behavioral therapy as the most effective treatment for patients suffering from the disorder.

Carmin (2009) OCD prevents it’s sufferers from living their lives as they would like to sometimes affecting friendships, marriages and their self-confidence.

People who suffer from OCD give their random thoughts more credibility and imagine that the things that they fear will come true.
Defense mechanisms are unconscious procedures aimed at reducing anxiety that arises from different scenarios involving the social environment, conflicts with others, and conflicts with superego values and beliefs. They were first discovered by Sigmund Freud as part of his psychoanalytic theory, and further developed by his daughter, Anna Freud. They discovered unconscious mechanisms, which are part of the mind that contains repressed anxieties, and they are able to protect an individual from psychological pain or anxiety. While such mechanisms may be helpful in the short term they can easily become a substitute for addressing the underlying cause and lead to additional problems. Anna Freud continued her work on defense mechanisms and found out that they work by “changing unacceptable impulses into acceptable forms, or by unconsciously blocking such impulses, thus reducing anxiety” (Freud, Anna).
Her fleeing from her house in the dream may also have represented her anxiety of desiring to move out. A dream analysis may help people become aware of their unconscious desires and fears. With this awareness, people can decide how they want to deal with their issues, which in turn may help to alleviate their stresses and desires that may be causing their anxiety dreams.

Marsha Linehan, was developed to treat people with suicidal ideation but is now also used to treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). This is logical because suicidal thinking and actions are more common with the person dealing with BPD. In DBT the therapists look at two extremes of a scenario and cogently balances them until a medium is come to. By doing so the therapist reassures the client that their feelings are legitimate (NIMH). The therapist also will let the client know when boundaries are transgressed and in turn give them the skills to better deal with like conditions in the future.
