The role of counselling or psychotherapy is a “means of gaining access to cultural resources that can be used to solve or resolve problems in living and to construct a life that has meaning and purpose”. (McLeod, J. 2005). Cultural resources from a pluralistic stance focus on the strengths of a client (Duncan, Miller and Sparks, 2004). They are viewed as both a form of resilience and strength, but also as a means by which a client can be connected to a social network outside of the therapy room.
In modern-day psychology we are equipped with a wide variety of therapies, techniques, and approaches that have been based on the different models and theories of human behavior and development. Because many new situations arise during psychotherapy, psychologists have come up with different theoretical models of counseling that are applicable for these cases. These theoretical models of counseling have helped in overcoming the impacts of several emotional psychological difficulties such as stress, depression and anxiety (Fall & Holden, 2010). As they may solve similar problems in human beings, these models also have their differences. Throughout this paper I will compare and contrast two theoretical models of counseling; cognitive behavioral
INTRODUCTION Advanced Counselling Theories: Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (PP) rooted from traditional psychoanalysis theories. PP operates with the basic assumption that focuses on unconscious processes, recognising how a person’s behaviour and feelings in the present rooted from childhood experiences in the past. The objective of PP is to facilitate client to reach self-awareness and to have a better understanding of the problems by identifying the origin of the issues as well as underlying causes that may be present. PP places heavy emphasis on client’s relationships and interpersonal experience (Shedler, 2010). The approach of PP acknowledge the importance of therapeutic alliance.
Likewise, their exam results showed the positive effect of group work in mathematics. Students in the experimental group performed better in the integration section of the exams than the control group. Based on the results of the experiment and questionnaire, Sofroniou and Poutos (2016:7) concluded that it can be said that group work learning, especially group discussion,“helped to deepen students’ understanding and to develop critical and analytical thinking skills”. Furthermore, Sofroniou and Poutos (2016:12) emphasised the importance of group work in learning skills that learners can gain through discussion during group work because currently many of employers are looking for people who “are able to work collaboratively” and “solve
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).
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a time sensitive, structured. Present oriented psychotherapy directed toward solving problems and teaching clients skills to modify dysfunctional thinking and behavior. CBT is based on 5 key areas (or elements) which strongly influence each other and give rise to patterns of thought, behavior and emotions. In all cases of psychological distress there will be the patterns of thought, feelings and behavior that maintain and exacerbate difficulties and distress. Sometimes clients will recognize some of these patterns, but more commonly they are not fully aware of the ones that maintain their difficulties.
This article has a lot to do with why I based my opinion off the question at hand, it's proves that benefits of having a strength based organization is that you don't have to worry about failing in whatever you are trying to provide.

The approach was chosen with regards to earlier findings in different psychotherapy interventions, and the client’s needs in this case study. The interventions and planning were adjusted and tailor made so as to match the needs of the client and the therapeutic progress. The case study was carried out as an individual case study due to a few considerations. Firstly, it was difficult to recruit a group of hearing-impaired individuals as they were comparatively less active in social activities. Their motivation for participating social events and therapies were low which made them one of the most difficult populations in psychotherapy (Glickman, 2008).
Cooperative learning has to do also with discussion in group. Discussion is very effective because when many ideas compare in group to each other that will be the greatest one. Discussion may be with big groups and small groups. Those groups learning activities may be designed to encourage students to construct knowledge as they learn new material, transforming the classroom into a learners’ community, actively learning together to understand statistics. Discussion activities appear to benefit students in different ways.
