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
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.
The Sociological Pursuit to Happiness How one depicts an “ideal society,” vs true reality is generally influenced by social factors. What is sociology and why are there so many different aspects?

This essay will discuss the multifaceted worldview supporting the need and application of constructivism in 21st century career counselling. Some theoretical and practical aspects will be looked into, to comprehend the principle dimensions and core components from which the conceptual framework of constructivism has been derived. The approaches that lay the foundation of constructivism in career counselling will be described with strong emphasis on real-life counselling scenarios. Linking theory with practice, counselling sessions will be assessed keeping in view the application of both constructivism and positivism. This assessment will therefore provide a background to better evaluate the effectiveness of constructivist approach in career
The dominant model used in medicine is the biomedical approach. This approach assumes that illness is due to deviation of biological norm. Because this model approaches illness in a reductionist way a new model by Engel in 1997 was proposed- The biopsychosocial model- where biological, psychological, social factors are all taken into consideration. This report will compare both biomedical and biopsychosocial model in relation to medicine. The traditional line of attack to medicine has always been the biomedical approach which is a model that excludes psychological and social factors when it comes to understanding the patient’s illness.
This method is appropriate for the clinical psychology as a treatment way to help the patients to solve their self-conflict by recognizing their emotions, needs or problems. To put it briefly, philosophy provides lots of ideas which contribute the clinical psychology to test it and apply the

Two of these health models are the biomedical and the psychosocial models. These models can be examined to understand their assumptions, how they are affected by the leading causes of death, how they relate to research, their aspects during diagnosis and treatment, and their strengths and weaknesses. Assumptions of the Models The biomedical approach is centered around the absence of a disease as the definition of health (Gurung, 2014)). This model has a strong emphasis on the biological mechanisms of disease, while assuming that the psychological and social aspects of the patient are unimportant factors in both understanding and treating patients (Lane, 2014). However, the biopsychosocial model does assume that the psychological and social components are essential in understanding and treating the patient.
