1. cognitive analytical therapy is useful in emotionally unstable

I would infer TRUE from:

'It can be a valuable tool in the out-patient setting with non-psychotic patients, particularly after the initial psychiatric assessment. It is most useful in neurotic disorders if patients cannot understand their feelings, see them as irrational or find them overwhelming. It also contains a section on ‘unstable states of mind’ that describes well some of the common symptoms of emotionally unstable personality disorder.'

2. preoperational thought is a type of dysfunctional thinking identified in CBT

FALSE

'Preoperational Thought is the term Piaget gave to the 2 to 7 year old child’s understanding of the world. Children at this stage of reasoning cannot understand such logical operations as the reversibility of mental representations.'

3. spiral deviance is to do with primary and secondary deviance

False, i think - websites on sociology

spiral deviance -

Stanley Cohen describes this process: “An initial act of deviance, or normative diversity (for example, in dress) is defined as being worthy of attention and is responded to punitively. The deviant or group of deviants is segregated or isolated and this operates to alienate them from conventional society. They perceive themselves as more deviant, group themselves with others in a similar position, and this leads to more deviance.” [Cohen, 1972]. (also coined 'moral panic' - relating to mods & rockers)

- Not necessarily illegal but seen as deviant

Primary deviance: Norm-breaking that hasn't been publicly-labelled as deviant

Secondary deviance: What happens after someone (e.g. Control Agency such as police) reacts to the fact of your deviance (the consequences of the social reaction to deviant behaviour)

7.in social power expertise at work is in conflict with referential power

False again I think - social power linked with perceived competence, referential power - others wanting to gain approval of powerful person as admires or identifies with them

I only reference I could find for this is:

J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998;64:510-515 ( April )

Apathy and hypersomnia are common features of myotonic dystrophy

J S Rubinsztein,a D C Rubinsztein,b S Goodburn,b A J Hollanda
