1.Chapter 6


One factor in dual relationships mentioned in the reading is harm. As psychologists we must always assess if the treatment is a) needed. and b) helpful. Let’s say we have someone come in with depression. They have chosen to try cognitive behavioral therapy with a psychologist. They have come in now for six weekly visits and they are appearing to have more of a flat affect, and they have started abusing alcohol in the last few weeks. We must examine if it is the treatment that is making them worse or try and identify a new approach that will better help them cope. Is the person still able to make rational decisions? Would continuing the therapy make them worse? Are they at risk for suicide? Do they now need more focus on the alcohol abuse than the depression, or do they need a dual diagnosis approach? These are just some of the questions that we have to ask and address in order to make sure we are not harming the client. What are your thoughts on this?
