Electroconvulsive Therapy, ​
 formerly known as electroshock therapy and also referred  to as shock treatment, is a standard psychiatric treatment in which seizures are electrically  induced in patients to provide relief from psychiatric illnesses. This is a biological perspective  because it combines medical and biological aspects of a patient to physically treat the certain  disorder.  

Transference is ​
the redirection of feelings and desires and especially of those 

unconsciously retained from childhood toward a new object. This is a psychoanalytic  perspective because your conscious puts forth your unconscious desires and hides  what you are actually feeling. But then you end up projecting those feelings to whom is  analyzing.  

Token economy is a system of behavior modification based on the systematic  reinforcement of target behavior. The reinforcers are symbols or "tokens" that can be  exchanged for other reinforcers.  This perspective is a learning aspect because these  people learn daily behaviors and also learn what is right and what is wrong by the  enforced “tokens”.
