• Social Cognitive Therapy According to Sue et al (1997:350) this form of therapy makes use of a psychodynamic styled approach in treating an individual’s depressive state by working on their social skills with others. In achieving this, the methods used in other styles of treatment, such as mental-habitual remedial treatment, are applied. The rationale associated in this type of treatment is that depressive states of mind take place as a result of social situations, in which the need to deal with certain conflictions and problems need be sorted out amicably. At this level the individual is provided with an internal look at what the conflicts are and how they need be resolved.
Over a span of fifty years, therapists have begun to accept different approaches to physiological healing then those used previously. This change in psychology can be attributed to Carl Rogers and his belief that there is more to the treatment process then the dictatorial approach that was being used during his era. Through the duration of 4 stages in Roger’s development evolved the revolutionary belief of the Person-Centered approach. Implemented by counselors during the sixties and seventies as a section of the “Third Force”, combined with existential and gestalt therapy, as an alternative to psychoanalytic and behavioral approaches (Corey, 2005). Person-Centered Therapy was not a completed therapeutic theoretical process, it was presented as a process which Rogers hoped would be used as a principle that was in a constant state of evolving.
Psychoanalytic group therapy is the model involving groups that meets face to face with therapist and it comes approximately in a group of seven to eight members. Each and everyone in the group have to contribute with their thought. Firstly some might feel a sense of rejection being in a group but those fears will fade away after they observe the rest of the group members. Apart from that, during the session, members will be able to receive valuable feedback from one another rather than depending on the therapist itself (Kleinberg, 2011). Basically, clients in groups will be able to gain insight into their resistances and defenses more dramatically in a group setting than in individual therapy.
The treatment process involves three main stages, namely; stabilization, trauma-focused therapy, and reintegration. Stabilization is the first step in the treatment of complex PTSD and involves speaking with the therapist to ascertain how the individual can control the feelings of distrust and thus lose the feeling of disconnectedness from family and friends. The technique commonly used in this stage is called grounding. The grounding technique assists in separating an individual from the traumatic or abusive past from their present. This makes the past less threatening by reducing the number of flashbacks the individual experiences thereby making them experience less anxiety and cope with life properly.
This week I am choosing to highlight a Person-Centered Therapy Group as a theoretic approach to counseling. Carl Rogers is said to have applied particular approach to group therapy beginning in the 1960s. His technique, however, of this nondirective counseling, were birthed in the early 1940s, with Rogers who was known as a courageous pioneer in the particular approach. In this approach, Rogers placed emphasis on the therapist’s realness and empathy, the relationship between client and therapist was paramount, as opposed to previous types of therapeutic approaches, that put greater emphasis on giving advice, diagnosis, teaching and interpretations. (Corey, 2016, p. 257) Personally, I see this type of approach in therapy helpful, by creating
The type of group that I observed was an Alcohol Anonymous group, which is also known as a self-help group. A self help group can be defined as, “A formed group, which may or may not be professionally led, composed of persons who share a common life situation.” (Hutchison, 2015, p. 565). The purpose of this group was for them to come together every week and talk about their mutual problems. In the group I specifically observed were mostly individuals who were addicted to alcohol, but also had an addiction to certain drugs.

The rational actor model is a linchpin of FPDM. Paul MacDonald contends that numerous consider it "to be the most conceivable contender for an all inclusive hypothesis of political and social conduct, whose straightforward and instinctively conceivable suppositions hold the guarantee of binding together the different subfields of political science." Whereas numerous researchers censure the model, others unequivocally guard it. Prior to a model can be proposed in view of its fundamentals or its basic suppositions censured, we should first comprehend it.
