Socratic questioning put into clinical practice | Socratic dialogue in CBT

Socratic questioning is a core communication skill in the process and delivery of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). The mastery of this clinical skill requires enduring training, practice and supervision, which are intrinsically linked to therapists' competence development and personal growth. Surprisingly, there are few practical and theoretical resources to assist clinicians' and psychotherapy trainees' learning, and little research has been conducted on the process and mechanisms of change underlying the use of Socratic questioning in CBT. The Socratic questioning method classically u...

blockchain

Blockchain is the most important technology you might not yet understand. It is building a future that can be more decentralized and democratic, whose beneficiaries could range widely from Syrian refugees to investment banks. The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2027, 10% of global GDP will be stored on blockchain technology. Rapidly evolving blockchain technology and startups could fundamentally change entire business models, fundraising models, business operations, payments systems, and more. Despite the importance of this emerging technology, much unfamiliarity surrounds the topic. ...

Complex count: On caste census

The idea of a national caste census might be abhorrent when the stated policy is to strive for a casteless society, but it will be useful to establish statistical justification for preserving caste-based affirmative action programmes. It may also be a legal imperative, considering that courts want 'quantifiable data' to support the existing levels of reservation. Political parties with their base in particular social groups may find a caste enumeration useful, if their favoured groups are established as dominant in specific geographies; or they may find the outcome inconvenient, if the precise...

High water: on growing challenge from tropical cyclones

Tropical cyclones laden with moisture and accumulated energy pose a growing challenge, as they have the propensity to inflict heavy damage to lives and property. As the annual monsoon retreats, thousands are left assessing the impact of cyclone Gulab, a rare event for September, on coastal Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and other areas inland. This weather system, with a gusting wind speed of 70 knots at landfall, appears to have been less intimidating than cyclones Yaas and Tauktae, although it continued to keep the seas unsafe for fishermen all along the coastline north of Andhra Pradesh, after movi...

Needless row: On amendment to Rajasthan marriage law

The controversy over the recent amendment to the Rajasthan Compulsory Registration of Marriages Act is unnecessary, as it clearly does not amount to validating or legitimising child marriage. However, the issue made by the Opposition and the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights may occasion a reconsideration of the legal framework dealing with child marriages that continue to take place despite a statutory prohibition. The Rajasthan law enacted in 2009 provided for compulsory registration of all marriages. It is largely similar to the enactments in other States, and is based on t...

A moment that changed me: a man had a massive heart attack and died in my arms

I was in the back of the back of beyond: a wilderness camp in a lonely north-eastern corner of the Australian continent known by the acronym FNQ: far north Queensland. To reach it, you had to leave a paved road, drive on to a barge, cross a river along which alligators loitered with malevolent intent, and then head north into the density of the rainforest foliage. The camp was six huts on stilts with a general dining and bar area. Its owner was named Mal: an amiable, "good on you, mate" fellow in his late 50s. His wife, Alison, immediately struck me as shy and hype stressed. Mal had been a bu...

The first time: On Daniil Medvedev's stunning win at U.S. Open

Daniil Medvedev's stunning straight-sets victory over World No.1 Novak Djokovic brought the curtains down on one of the most eventful editions of the US Open in recent memory. In the lead-up, the script was laid out perfectly -- of Djokovic trying to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four Majors of the year and securing a record 21st Grand Slam title to take him past Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the all-time tally. But Medvedev flipped that narrative with an astonishing display of power and creativity to secure his maiden Major trophy in his third final. The 25-year-...

Cracking the whip: On Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates

President Joe Biden's sweeping vaccine mandates, aimed at improving the U.S.'s odds of beating the rampaging Delta variant, represent a bold move in the face of the ongoing "pandemic of the unvaccinated". On the one hand, his plan is based on leveraging the power of the federal government to impose vaccine mandates wherever its fiscal heft allows, including for workers at health-care organisations receiving public funds, and for federal government employees and contractors. On the other, the White House's requirement that all companies employing 100 or more people must vaccinate their workforc...

Positive climate: On India engaging the U.S.

India's front-line position as third highest emitter of greenhouse gases has sharpened focus on its future policy course to mitigate carbon emissions under the Paris Agreement. It has an irrefutable claim to a big part of the remaining global carbon budget, along with other smaller nations with low historical emissions, but room for maneuvering has shrunk in a world facing record temperatures and calamitous weather events. There is escalating pressure for India to commit itself to a date when it can achieve net zero -- removing as much GHGs as it emits -- on the lines of the goal set by the U....

The Guardian view on unorthodox thinking: science would not get far without it

In Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift mocked the assumption that the scientific revolution had transformed European culture for the better. The satirical novel, published in 1726, has its eponymous hero stumbling upon "the Academy" in the fictional city of Lagado, and pokes fun at the idea that a scientific temperament could be useful. Swift describes pointless experiments to extract sunbeams from cucumbers and to build houses from the roof downwards. His book is laced with sardonic wit. But unorthodox, even absurd, thinking is necessary for science to progress. That point has been underlined...

Return of the Mullahs: On the Taliban’s Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

The debate on whether the Taliban would form an "inclusive government" representing all sections of Afghan society was laid to rest by the Taliban themselves on September 7 when the group's spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, announced the formation of the new administration of the 'Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan'. Of the 33 Cabinet Ministers named, 30 are Pashtun, two ethnic Tajiks, and one is Uzbek. The Taliban are predominantly Pashtun, who make up some 40% of Afghanistan's ethnically diverse population of 40 million. Women and the Hazara Shia minority -- both faced targeted harassment and discr...

The Observer view on the weaknesses of Boris Johnson’s social care levy

Boris Johnson's plan to "fix the crisis in social care" has arrived after 18 months of procrastination and decades of heartbreaking complaints from dementia sufferers and disabled people denied the care they need. A health and social care white paper is imminent, possibly before Christmas, that will explain how the crumbling patchwork of social care providers, most privately owned, will be knitted into the health system to provide a better service "once and for all". As a precursor, Johnson announced a levy that he said would underpin the sector's funding and provide security for the next dec...

Catching up: On Production-Linked Incentive scheme for textile sector

The Cabinet's approval of a Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the textile sector that is expressly targeted at the man-made fibre (MMF) and technical textiles segments is a belated acknowledgment by the Government that the ground has inexorably shifted in the global textiles trade. A relentless shift in consumer preferences and fashion trends saw MMF surpass cotton as the fibre of choice in the 1990s, since vaulting its share in worldwide textile consumption to about 75%. India's textile and clothing exports on the other hand have continued to remain dominated by cotton and other na...

The emergence of Muslim ‘politicophobia’ after 9/11

The term Islamophobia is rather inappropriate to map out the nature of post-9/11 Indian public debates on Muslim identity. Islamophobia, which simply means an intense dislike or fear of Islam or prejudice towards Muslims, is a western notion. It captures the anxieties of the middle-class white population in the US and Europe in the aftermath of the war against terror. The Muslim identity, on the other hand, is an established problem category in India. The political class, including the so-called secularists, has never been fully comfortable with Muslim presence. The involvement and particip...

Teaching is 'one of the least popular jobs in the UK

The UK government has just published a report on the future of secondary­school teaching (pupils aged 11-16), and the conclusion of the report is that many secondary schools now face great difficulties in finding people who want to be teachers. Since the 1980s, the number of graduates who say they would 'seriously consider' teaching as a career has fallen sharply, from 64% in 1982 to just 17% today. The report suggests that urgent action needs to be taken in order to encourage more intelligent young graduates into teaching. The main drawback of secondary teaching, according to the report, is...
