• Unconditional positive regard – Therapists must always maintain a positive and non-judgmental view of their clients.

Existential therapy seeks to help people who are facing problems with issues relating to these and it provides a phenomenological approach during therapy sessions. Existential therapy lives by the belief that every individual has the freedom to choose and is responsible for their choices in life (Corey, 2009). It also encourages clients to be aware that they have the ability to construct their lives, find the purpose of living, deal with anxieties and death (Corey, 2009). Existential therapy is more of an idea rather than an independent school of psychology with certain abided rules in therapy such as psychoanalysis or behaviorism. Some key people that contributed to existential therapy are Victor Frankl and Rollo May.
Though it has certain boundaries and limitations, a lot of times Marion may expect the therapist to act as the expert, instead of having to conduct the conversation themselves (Winslade & Cotter, 2002). For these reason, Narrative Therapy can be challenging especially if Marion will not be a good talker or not articulate. There are so many factors, but the only way the therapist can work well with Marion is to make her feel with an amazing self-confidence coupled with intellectual capacity and other narratives will be expressed properly. The therapist can also program some agenda for Marion to support a framework to her narrative to make her tell her stories easier. But the most important aspect of Narrative Therapy is to empower the client (Flaskas, 1999).
When engaged in an I-Thou dialogue one is concerned with the uniqueness of the individual, or summarized as “actively listening and encouraging the feelings and opinions of the other person instead of planning our next response while he or she is speaking” (Neher & Sandin, 2007, p. 90). Rogers believed the client should be the “director of their own lives, and it is the therapists responsibility to provide an atmosphere of unconditional positive regard and empathy towards the client” (Bozarth, 2012). The use of I-Thou communication style, or the non-directivity in his therapy, allowed Rogers clients to deal with the issues they believed to be most important, by allowing the person to cope at their own pace.
Also, you generally remain aware of and remember what happens under hypnosis. At the start of hypnotherapy the therapist will typically talk in a gentle, soothing tone and describe images that create a sense of relaxation, security and well-being. When you're in a receptive state, the therapist will suggest ways for you to achieve your goals, such as reducing pain or eliminating cravings to smoke. The therapist also may help you visualize vivid, meaningful mental images of yourself accomplishing your goals. When the session is over, either you are able to bring yourself out of hypnosis or your therapist helps you end
A few ways this situation has impacted my nursing practice is to; acknowledge my own biases, learn more about my patient’s community, and understand that my first assumptions are often incorrect. Another tactic that I use in population-based nursing is to value communities that are not like me for they are humans and deserve equal care and respect. Moreover, there is far more to learn from people and situations that are unfamiliar and unlike the population that you identify with. Together, these specific learning realizations have formed how I communicate with
Initially, therapist and client have to build an equal relationship between each other, and later this relationships can become like a colleague who coaches them or somebody whose expertise and experience and understanding and knowledge they do rely on (2010, audio, excerpt 10). Therapist’s aim is to guide the client to find the direction in their life, they keep their on the goal and the purpose at all times, but allow the client to take that in charge themselves. Therapist helped him look at things in more breadth or more depth, i.e. exploring why it is they have this position or why it is it seem like this to them rather than like that to them (2010, audio, excerpt

The difference in outcome is what makes these two types of therapy crucial to each other. Contrasting occupational and physical therapy will show more clearly why both are needed in their own right; these two therapy categories complement each other from their therapy practices to the education given to patients, and even with their end goal. Occupational therapy can vary immensely. Gary Kielhofner stated in Conceptual Foundations Of Occupational Therapy Practice “The observation that engagement in an occupation had the potential to transform people is what brought the field into existence.” This is why occupational therapy patients are given tasks instead of simple movements.
(Murray-Slutsky, 2004). Occupational therapy intervention focuses on a few main areas such as improving the patient’s attention, learning and flexibility; improving physical function; and improving social, play and prevocational skills. When one speaks of improving the patient’s attention, this can mean they improve the patient’s ability to recognize, adapt, control, and process their response when around sensory and environments they are uncomfortable with (Murray-Slutsky, 2004). This is also known as sensory overload and can happen in a variety of places. For example, Jane has Asperger’s and one of her side effects is sensory overload.
