Below are four brief descriptions of how different therapists might approach a problem for which you have sought their help. For each, identify what type of therapy is being described, and why you think so. Be sure that you define/describe the type of therapy being done, and identify parts of the example that justify your answer.Cite all sources, you should at least have your textbook as a source. Watch grammar and spelling.
Your therapist counsels you that it is impossible for you to be loved or cared for by all people who are significant at your job and in your community. She further urges you to abandon the irrational approach you take to interpreting the events that occur in your life.
Upon entering his office, your therapist asks you to sit down and be comfortable. He then tells you that you should speak freely, and not to worry about censoring any thoughts you many have during the therapy session. He sits behind you to minimize any eye contact does not wish to serve as an authority figure during your session. At one point he cautions you about becoming defensive and suggests that you might be unconsciously attempting to block his access into gaining insight into the inner workings of your thought processes.
After spending some time with your therapist, it becomes obvious to you that she believes that you are making unrealistic comparisons between the person you are and the person that you would like to be.

At the same time, you are convinced that she holds you in high esteem, no strings attached.
After confessing to your therapist that you are horribly afraid of bees, he works with you to construct a hierarchy of stimuli that are increasingly fearful to you.

Once the hierachry is completed, he teaches you how to feel relaxed to these stimuli, starting first with the stimuli to which you are least afraid.
