    • Argue the benefits of this element or concept in contrast to two different techniques in general psychotherapy such as cognitive restructuring (from cognitive/behavioral theory) or dream analysis (from psychodynamic theory).
    • Summarize several significant factors that contribute to a positive outlook based on current research.
    • Analyze the potential advantages of this positive outlook and what changes would need to be implemented to impact the mental health field.
