WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS OF CONTEXTUAL THERAPY OF PHOBIC BEHAVIOUR?

PRIVATE PSYCHOTHERAPY CLINIC -SENIOR ACCREDITED PSYCHOTHERAPIST-Dr.Fawzy Masaoud-LONDON, ENGLAND

The same technique is used for all kinds of  phobias. Some people           will respond more quickly and many will take much more time,   requiring the slow buildup of new realistic beliefs that can stand  up to the impact of longstanding fear and patterns of distorted thinking. Very similar techniques and methods of treatment have been developed by others, particularly by Claire Weekes of Australia.

Like animal ethnology, Contextual Therapy observes and studies behavior as it changes in its natural contexts. And like the emerging   cognitive therapies, this method recognizes the powerful role in  human behavior of changing thought and imagery. While the      contextual approach also explores hidden mental processes, it differs  greatly from contemporary psychoanalysis, which directly observes behaviour only in the office. And despite sporadic similarities in  technique, Contextual Therapy differs very much from those behavior  therapies whose theories are derived from laboratory studies of animals.
