Child Psychology ASSIGNMENT

Child Psychology Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is defined by the inability to pay attention, increased activity, as well as the manifestation of improper behavior, which is not suited for the age of the child. The condition can be managed. Often, the children suffering from it manifest the behavior at the age of 6 years. The behavior leads to poor performance.
Psychodynamic psychology focuses on the changes that occur in adults and children. The theoretical areas covered by the approach include social, emotional, social, biological and cognitive (Shedler, 2012). These changes occur mainly in the childhood stages. The approach focuses on normative development, which is a cumulative approach to development and plasticity. Children suffering from ADHD can be placed in a different environment in order for the psychologists to create plasticity (Conway, 2015).
Cognitive behavioral approach to psychology empathizes on the problems manifested by the condition as opposed to the underlying causes of the condition (Torrente et al., 2014). This is an opposite treatment approach to the psychoanalysis approach which tends to focuses on the roots of the problem. Psychoanalysis is only ideal in a given set of problems. However, for the neurodegenerative disorders, cognitive behavioral therapy is ideal since it treats the problems and aims at treating the dysfunctional behaviors (Van Hulst, De Zeeuw & Durston, 2015),. Therefore, the children are encouraged to change their distorted cognitions.
Humanistic approach to psychology rejects the concept of determinism and is more concerned with the positive growth as opposed to pathology (Waterman, 2013). Therefore, it argues that one can be changed depending on the ability of the therapist to create positive growth. Instead of assigning limited definition of capabilities, the theory calls for an objective observation of the behavior (Pascual-Leone, Paivio, & Harrington, 2016). The approach will most likely use the individualized approach to healthy growth when dealing with the condition.
The family systems approach identifies Individuals as part of complex systems seeking homeostasis (Sibley et al., 2013). The approach can be applied to the case through the identification of the individual roles in the solving of the case (Lee et al., 2013). The perception is that each member of the family is connected to the other. When treating ADHD, the systems theory can be applied in the creation of a stable working environment.
