Describe two factors that interfere in recall. Give examples of how this may be present in a client seeking counseling and how you would address the problem. Post should be at least 300 words.

It began in 1986 to examine (longitudinally) causes and prevention of Alzheimer’s and is still ongoing, looking at the effect of positive outlook on life, and staying mentally as well as physically active, and how that correlates with dementia later in life. The results are very impressive so far! Those nuns who stay sharp by doing novel activities and keeping their brains active learning new things (crossword puzzles, learning to paint, any learning at all!) are significantly less likely to suffer with dementia or if dementia exists, their brains create new neural pathways to compensate. So, this could mean there is hope for those of us whose parents have dementia and we fear the same.Take a look at this short video, I think you’ll find it really fascinating: nun study video (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Describe two factors that interfere in recall. Give examples of how this may be present in a client seeking counseling and how you would address the problem. Disruption in memory is a phenomenon of losing the stability of remembering or recalling of the things or events of the past. There are two main factors which play an important role in causing interference in the recall. These two factors are attention and motivation. Attention is observed to drop a noticeable impact on the memory of an individual. When an individual has dropped so much attention on something, and a minor diversion causes loss of the linkages of memory that are freshly developed. Attention on one side impacts on the memory reading or recall too when the memory was encoded in a weakly attentive manner. The best example is listening to a lecture of 40 minutes in class and missing some of the many facts which were required to be recalled during exams.Motivation is another most important factor in which memory recall is affected. It ranges from monetary to personal. A study was conducted on college students for remembering some facts. One group was promised with some rewards while others were not. The results showed that the students with promised rewards were highly motivated in recognizing the facts than that of the students who were not promised at all.ReferencesYu, Y., Yarrington, R.

I say that because distractions and low motivation are pretty common, but if someone is disturbed about it enough to make an appointment with me, then something is ‘off’ which may be environmental or organic. Encoding and retrieval difficulties can be attributed to stress, and that can happen at any age as well. So, we aren’t looking at motivation or attention, but for things like dementia and possible encoding difficulties which can be cause by depression, stress, and a host of other mental health issues like mTBI for example which stands for mild traumatic brain injury or concussion.
