SHORT QUESTION NO. 9

Explain Albert Ellis’s ABC Model with the help of an example.

ANSWER:

Ellis proposed the A-B-C three stage model, to explain how irrational thoughts could lead to depression.

A: Activating Event

An event occurs, for example, you pass a friend in the corridor at school and he/she ignores you, despite the fact you said ‘hello’.

B: Beliefs

Your belief is your interpretation of the event, which can either be rational or irrational.

A rational interpretation of the event might be that your friend is very busy and possibly stressed, and he/she simply didn’t see or hear you.

An irrational interpretation of the event might be that you think your friend dislikes you and never wants to talk to you again.

C: Consequences

According to Ellis, rational beliefs lead to healthy emotional outcomes (for example, I will talk to my friend later and see if he/she is okay), whereas irrational beliefs lead to unhealthy emotional outcomes, including depression (for example, I will ignore my friend and delete their mobile number, as they clearly don’t want to talk to me).

SHORT QUESTION NO. 28

 Write a note on dream analysis.

Dream Analysis

ANSWER:

Chances are you’ve had a dream in which you were falling – it’s one of the most commonly reported dreams. Have you ever wondered what it means? Many believe a falling dream signifies that something in your life is on the wrong track, such as a career or a marriage, and needs changing. Some psychologists dedicate their careers to the process of evaluating dreams to determine their meanings. This is called dream analysis.

The first recorded EXAMPLE of dream analysis date back to ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptian dream interpreters believed the gods communicated through dreams, and they even produced a book compiling more than 200 of the gods’ messages. It’s no surprise humanity has been trying to understand these puzzling visions since we gained the mental capacity to do so, but the greatest advancements in dream analysis came in the 20th century, when psychoanalysts Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung developed scientific theories of the discipline.

SHORT QUESTION NO. 30

 Write a note on Double Avoidance Conflict.

ANSWER:

Double approach-avoidance conflicts have two goals, each with good and bad points. The only available job is dull but will provide income. Should I go out with Agne or lina? Agne is intelligent but hard to talk while Lina is talkative but simple. Like single approach-avoidance conflicts, double approach-avoidance conflicts are anxiety-provoking and hard to resolve.
Real conflicts may not fit neatly into these categories because people often face more than two choices. Moreover, when examined closely, all options in a conflict have both positive and negative aspects. At the very least, the selection of any appealing option limits other choices; the adoption of any negative option has an attraction , removing the conflict and the anxiety it generated. In short, life conflicts are likely to be of the approach-avoidance type.

The child grows as a whole and even if one aspect of personality is in focus, the other areas of development which are indirectly influencing the personality have also to be kept in mind.
  4. The principle of cooperation.No individual can be forced into guidance. The consent and cooperation of the individual is a pre-requisite for providing guidance.
  5. The principle of continuity.Guidance should be regarded as a continuous process of service to an individual in different stages of his life.

SHORT QUESTION NO. 41

 What is the relation between Attitude and Behaviour?

ANSWER:

It seems common sense to think that someone’s attitude to something would influence their behaviour. For example, someone who did not like the idea of people killing animals for food is likely to be a vegeterian or a vegan. Moreover, someone who was interested in being healthy would not smoke. However, this does not always seem to be the case. This seemingly strange attitude-behaviour relationship interested Festinger in 1957. Festinger theorised that this relationship between one’s attitude and contradictory behaviour should be known as ‘Cognitive Dissonance’. When an individual holds two thoughts or cognitions that are polar opposites, this causes ‘psychological discomfort or tension’. We aim to reduce this by giving less importance to one cognition. This is a way to rationalise our behaviour.

 Write briefly about cognitive development and social development.

ANSWER:

Cognitive development is an important aspect of overall child development. Generally cognition refers to how we think, pay attention, remember, and learn.

Children are born ready and willing to develop cognitive skills. They have been compared to little scientists. They are constantly learning new ideas, how things work, and how to solve problems.

Language and cognition are partners in child development. We use language to learn new ideas, to talk about our thoughts and fears, and interact with those around us.

Schools foster cognitive development. Teachers don’t just teach a list of facts; they teach children how to think.

There are aspects of children’s cognitive development that may be affected when a child has an interpreted education.
