Client-centered therapy is unique in that it makes me feel connected to my clients on a person-to-person basis. This form of therapy places me in a conflict between my values and emotions. As a therapist, I would need to separate my client 's behavior from their persona, and I would need to address them as an individual not defined by their actions.

As we concluded in class often and integration of different models or techniques can play an important role in the application and delivery of a therapeutic intervention and after reading the articles I believe the integration was effective and helped limit the amount of drugs clients used during therapy.
