[checkbox name="variable_8" value="We focused on empathetic validation, reassurance, and further exploring and naming emotions/experiences with the purpose of enhancing ego function, supporting mature defenses, and fostering insight into psychosocial stressors.|The patient I worked on cognitive restructuring by challenging automatic negative thoughts that contribute to depression and anxiety, and identified cognitive distortions also influencing mood. We
reviewed the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and considered how to address ones feelings by modifying the other two constructs.|The patient I worked on emotional experiencing and processing of feelings that arise around certain stressors or events, that historically are pushed down, buried, or otherwise repressed. We considered the pitfalls of emotional avoidance including the onset or worsening of depression and anxiety.|The patient and I explored the patients stressors and frustrations. I validated these frustrations and
empathized with the experience. We did explore some ways to improve distress/frustration tolerance, including healthy distraction (with pleasurable activities, focusing on others, counting, and tasks/chores), radical acceptance, self-soothing techniques, mindfulness, coping thoughts, and self- affirming thoughts.|We explored her fear of abandonment which is chronic and longstanding and how the fear of abandonment does not make healthy decisions whereas the logical and more thoughtful does, and we want to recognize who is making decisions for her at different times as a way of developing cognitive dissonance from the thoughts, impulses, and decisions that her fear of abandonment self makes.|We explored tendencies towards perfectionism, and how this inherently implies a binary way of thinking, in which one has either been perfect or failed. We considered the inauthenticity of this thinking and how there is a spectrum between these points. We further considered how people make opinions of us based upon a number of interactions or data points such that an average is taken and the opinion is based upon this. Accordingly, one can have several positive data points which allows room to make some mistakes or have negative data points without drastically distorting the perception of us.|We worked on problematic reactions used to deal with extremely intense emotions and increasing understanding of what leads to problematic behaviors or responses to these emotions.|We worked on relationship issues such as interpersonal conflict, role transitions, or grief that may contribute to the development or continuation of mental health problems or symptoms.|We worked on unconscious influences and feelings that may be related to past events and interactions which allows for better self awareness, change, and recovery.
|Grief related to the loss of a loved one or relationship."] Addressing these psychological components should increase the response rate or at least mitigate symptoms, decreasing the risk for decompensation of underlying illness or the need for additional interventions or medications.
