Part one: Goal of Christian counselling Crabb argues that the primary goal of the biblical counseling theory is to promote Christian maturity and to enhance an individual’s spiritual life and worship experience. Precisely, he maintains that Christian maturity is developed by dealing with emergent problems with the consent of the scripture (Crabb, 1997). As such, the basic reference material in developing spirituality and neutralizing therapeutic problems is the Bible. Moreover, the development of one’s inward character during the counselling session is likened to that of Jesus Christ. As a result, this theory emphasizes the importance of having constructive attitudes, purposes and beliefs in Christianity.
This means that as Christians, we are to imitate Jesus and be like him in everything we do, especially our speech. As servant speakers, we have a desire to explore and share our experiences with one another. We gain knowledge through not only our own experiences but also by paying attention to other’s experiences and
I am not suggesting revolting or secretive ways, But I believe witnessing through action is just as important as witnessing through professing one’s belief. In Matthew 5:16, it states, “in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, NIV). Christian educator’s classroom should embody principles that are reflective of a Christian worldview to implement a biblical worldview to support a Christian philosophy in education in a practical application. We must instill themes like love, wholeness, and responsibility of knowledge. Graham states, “biblical teachings concerning love, wholeness, and responsibility, as well as our experience of them in Christ, must be brought to bear on our studies and research” (Graham, 2009, 24).
The individual is viewed as a biopsychosocial being who is continually interacting with the environment. The individual's goal through this interaction with environment is adaptation or adjustment. Roy and Roberts state 'The individual has two major internal processing subsystems, the regulator and the cognator." These subsystems are the instruments utilized by individuals to adapt to stimulus from the inside and outer environment. The regulator strategy works essentially through the autonomic nervous system and incorporates endocrine, neural, and perception pathways.
Nevertheless, both theories do involve the idea of a “nature vs nurture” idea, however in the context of what I have tried to explain in thorough detail, the psychological theory that involves both the primary and secondary sociopathic theories, and the biosocial theory have two different types of correlations. In conclusion, primary and secondary sociopaths are compared by both environment, and biology due to the research being presented from the text, Juvenile Delinquency. In comparing Primary sociopaths and secondary sociopaths with biosocial theory, they both involve the true definition of biosocial theory; by involving both the environment and the
For example, operant conditioning techniques stressed that in order to change or stop one’s behaviors, therapists should either give them reinforcement (positive/negative) or punishment (positive/negative). It is because people respond in predictable ways because of the gains experienced or of the need to avoid unpleasant consequences. However, according to Corey G. (2013), he mentioned that he actually agree that initially focusing on what clients are feeling and then working with the behavioral and cognitive dimensions. It is because that to him, it is a good point of departure when clients are feeling they are engaged. Hence, he can tie a discussion of what clients are feeling with how this is affecting their behavior and then later he can inquire about the
The love of God gives one the ability to reach and expand beyond their human expectations. Compassion and love for people originate from having a relationship with the Father. No matter where you find yourself in love, God is the answer. After reading about the trials and tribulations of the author, it makes you realize and understand the truth about submitting your will onto a true and living God who can take you further than your intellect can image. Recognizing and understanding has become an important fact as I continue to embark upon this journey.
In general, such special and positive thought sets up a useful strategy to relieve people and prevent them from being panic. Specially when the worst scenarios come, people like Mitchell need some inspirations other than the horrific facts of disaster. Therefore, accepting fear can help create other optimistic perspective of current situation and then prevent people from doing something
Cortisol is a steroid hormone released by our bodies in reaction to stress to help get us through challenging situations. Scientists have recently realized that the brain also uses cortisol to suppress the immune system and tone down inflammation within the body. So, persistent distress depresses your immune system and shuts down your body's ability to heal itself. Common conditions associated with chronic stress are heart disease, cancer, depression, eating disorders... the list is endless. There is such a thing as good stress - good stress has a positive effect.
