Assignment Brief: 1500 word essay “Describe and Evaluate the Effectiveness of Behavioural Therapies”

In your assignment you should:

  • Ensure your essay is logically structured (introduction, main body & conclusion), and be fully referencedthroughout and accompanied by an accurate bibliography.

Main body:

For the main body you will need to include key research, and show how these illustrate the processes of learning within the therapies you select.  You should describe these succinctly, using appropriate psychological terminology. You should describe at least two behavioural therapies, clearly explaining the processes used and show how they change behaviour. You will need to explain the relevance and usefulness of the therapies in terms of how successful they are in terms of treating maladaptive behaviours.  To evaluate the evidence you should include the following:

  • Consider the effectiveness of behavioural therapies – for example, you could compare and contrast the different exposure therapies and comment on how they compare in terms of effectiveness.  You should use specific research examples to illustrate the effectiveness of the therapies;
  • Consider the limitations associated with behavioural therapies – compare behavioural therapies with other treatments, particularly CBT; discuss the development of CBT and consider whether it has improved overall effectiveness; consider the limitation of behavioural therapies;
  • Consider ethical issues associated with behavioural therapies – use specific examples to illustrate the ethical issues; use comparative techniques to help you analyse how ethical the therapies are in relation to each other (eg, compare & contrast the exposure therapies); discuss whether CBT is more ethical than behavioural therapies.
