This specific model was chosen based on the belief that therapeutic change may occur within an emotionally significant relationship. Additionally, this model enables us to reflect on her relationship histories and how those affect her current and future relationships. There are several key features of this intervention model that will be addressed to create the needed change and produce positive results in the intervention. The first key feature of Attachment Theory is the activation and deactivation of behavioral systems.
7/(1) Integrated Behavioural Couples Therapy (IBCT) 7/(1) is a relatively new form of couples therapy. It is an offshoot of Traditional Behavioural Couples Therapy (TBCT), though unlike TBCT, it focuses more on emotional acceptance. 14/(2) This has produced a more advantageous effect to couples and is more lasting than TBCT.
Even the name of this approach creates a difference between approaches of the past; in the past the people who came to therapy were called patients, but in this approach they are known as clients. This idea created an idea of equal partnership within the therapeutic relationship, rather than an expert treating a patient. Within this approach, it is the job of the client to improve his or her own life, not the job of the therapist. The therapist is there more as a guide to finding one’s true self, rather than the person in the session who is to give all of the answers away. Because of this unique relationship in each situation, there is a lack of techniques to use within the therapeutic session.
An Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist will work with couples to explore softer, rawer emotions underneath the escalating patterns of hostility. Creating new cycles of bonding interactions occur and replace negative cycles such as pursue-withdraw or criticize-defend. These positive cycles then become self-reinforcing and create permanent change. In a safe environment with the therapist, couples can express their more vulnerable sides with each other, and learn about themselves and each other in ways that are completely new, reassuring and more connected. Then the relationship becomes a safe haven and a healing environment for both partners.
This would be especially important if some of the client 's difficulties were, at least in part, from her interpersonal relationship with her husband and his inability to meet her emotional needs since his medical diagnosis. If this were the case, it would benefit the client to identify and explore her attachment in her relationships, specifically the one with her husband. The first limitation (other than the first, above mentioned one) is the time necessary for successful psychodynamic therapy. Even ruling out the immediacy in the client 's need to relieve her acute symptoms, the long-term application of this type of therapy would might not yield enough relief in a reasonable amount of time (Scaturo, 2001). Although contemporary psychotherapy has altered its limitation relating to time constraints, the relief for the client may come sooner from other, or at least adjunct, therapies.
Consequently, this week’s interpersonal/relational wiki proves to have a strong focus on therapies that analyze the core of relationships. Thus, the similarity that stood out was the depiction of relationships. Most of the models rely heavily on a client’s relationship, either with self, family, or society. While each model focuses on one’s relationship/s, each model differs in its perception of where relationships fail, how they are empowered and what role the therapist plays. In Relational-Culture Therapy (RCT) the therapist empowers clients through growth fostering relationships; Family Systems Theory (FST) the therapist remains neutral and creates structure; Adlerian therapists model social behaviour; Gestalt therapists create space for
Working with families or individual persons can be very tricky if there are multiple problems involved. It is not only defining what the problems are but also what interventions can be put in place to help them. By offering interventions to the client we are trying to give them the opportunity to use the best resources that are available to them in the community.

Substance abuse and addiction go hand in hand with mental health illnesses. Not only can these disorders interfere with everyday lives, but also cause great harm to oneself and others around them such as their children. Substance abuse and addiction can cause parents to lose custody of their children, homelessness, and even death. It is important that anyone who is suffering with these mental illnesses get treatment before it is too late. The recovery model of mental health lays out the treatment for these mental disorders by incorporating methods that promote the collaboration of psychological professionals and patients. There are centers, non-profit organizations, and facilities that treat people with disorders such as these.
Therapeutic Relationships are not black and white and creating a positive relationship will take skill and work. Unfortunately, data is scarce on the effects of therapeutic relationships. However, we as educators, have first hand experience in the effectiveness of positive relationships and connecting with people. There are many reasons why the relationship between the client and counselor is considered to be extremely important in a session. The client must trust the counselor, feel comfortable in a session, communicate, and connect; only then will the client more than likely return for a second or third session. No relationship, no session, no client. We do know, from our personal and professional experiences, that relationships
The assessment therapy helps Hoober gain more insight into the young adult’s mental state, behaviors, emotions, and history. Furthermore, attachment therapy is a therapy that Hoober values the most and is put into play when a counselor wants to understand the adult’s relationship with others (p. 439). On the other hand, Hoober uses person-centered therapy to facilitate the client’s personal growth. Person-centered therapy is when the counselor attempts to bring the client to reality about their experiences. When conducting structural family therapy, Hoober discloses how he barely works with children, although, when he does work with children, he is mostly conversing with the parents.

Members of the treatment centre do not only have trouble with substance abuse but may have another problem along with it such as depression. Due to this, the therapeutic community model is the main model used because it is holistic.

According to Mr. Jurawan, the centre wants to ensure individuals are able to get back up on their feet and have a better life. Evaluate the usefulness of the model(s) at the treatment center.
