Quinnett speaks in layman’s terms, while Meichenbaum uses clinical terms. I would like you to compare these two readings and answer the following questions: ( The following are thinking patterns and identified terms used to describe them. The terms are found in the Meichenbaum reading and the intervention strategies are at the end of the Meichenbaum Handbook):

A.) First Define each term.

1.) Dichotomous Thinking 

2.) Cognitive Rigidity/Constriction

3.) Looming Vulnerability

4.) Absence of Protective Factors

5.) Overgeneralization of the problem

6.) Ruminative Process

 B.) For each term, provide  2 examples, one from Quinnett and one from Meichenbaum, which demonstrates the terms.  If you copy a part of a sentence from readings YOU MUST USE QUOTATION MARKS and Identify the Author and page number where you found the information.

Example: Dichotomous Thinking is …….. In the Quinnett reading a client says “_______________” which reflects dichotomous thinking. (Quinnett, 2012) In the Meichenbaum (2010)  reading a client may say “______________________”

C.) Identify one of Meichenbaums intervention strategies ( in the back of the author’s handbook) that you like and describe why you might use it with a client. What area might that technique address in regards to the clients thinking or beliefs, such as the ones listed ( cognitive rigidity, etc). 

D.) Compare and contrast….What do you like about these author’s handbooks? Was there anything you did not like?
