Social Work Exam Quiz: Name That Psychotherapy II

Here's a second installment in our Name That Psychotherapy series. The first quiz is here.
We've grabbed some descriptions (or description fragments) from Wikipedia's long list of psychotherapies and left you to match the descriptions with one of the listed therapy approaches. Today's task: Name that psychotherapy

1. _________________, a therapy in which subjects confront their fears and discontinue their escape response.

2. _________________ is focused helping people change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse.

3. _________________ seeks to help people identify their values and the skills and knowledge they have to live these values, while challenging dominant discourses that it claims shape people's lives in destructive ways.

4. _________________ asserts that a person's development is determined by often forgotten events in early childhood rather than by inherited traits alone.

5. _________________ suggests that the way people relate to others and situations in their adult lives is shaped by family experiences during infancy.

Maybe the (fairly vague) descriptions are enough for you. If so, wow! If not, here's a list of ten possibilities to weed through. The right answers are in there.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Object-relations psychotherapy
Systematic desensitization
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
Play therapy
Narrative therapy
