Michael White and David Epston observed and believed that the way people tell their stories reflects their emotions and motivations. A therapist must lead with a learner’s stance meaning from a place where the therapist learns from the client.

In existential therapy, therapists are mainly concerned with " understanding the subjective world of clients to help them come to new understandings and options." (Corey, 2009, p. 148). Helping clients accept the responsibility of their own lives allows them to move from emotional angst and self-deception, toward the joy of achieving personal potential (Corey, 2009). The therapist acts as a mirror, of sorts, to reflect some of the self-imposed constrictions and limitations preventing the client from further growth. Most existential therapists use a variety of loosely stated techniques with

Therapy sessions are “present” focused and are concerned with identifying and problem solving what needs to be address. The therapy sessions are highly structured and it gets the individual to practise new ways of thinking during the session. Cognitive behaviour interventions are based around psycho-education about pain and does the person understand their pain, many behavioural aspects, coping skills, different approaches in problem solving and how to deal with pain, to eliminate negative thinking and anxiety about pain, to utilize the ABC-E model to aid in identifying and overcoming events that may be impacting on the pain (Keefe, Dunsmore & Burnett 1992). Many studies have found that cognitive behaviour therapy is an effective treatment for chronic pain and its significant changes in the individual’s experience of pain, their pain behaviour, and social function (Morley et al
Once the therapeutic relationship is established in emotionally focused therapy the therapist can move on to the second task of assessing the relationships specifically focusing on patterns and cycles of behavior in the relationships (Greenberg & Johnson, 1988, p.72). The first part of the assessment process is to discuss what each partner thinks the problem is and what the goals are for therapy (Greenberg & Johnson, 1988, p.72). The therapist wants to understand each person’s role in the relationship and the reactions to different behaviors. These experiences are validated whenever possible through the therapist creating a safe environment (Greenberg & Johnson, 1988, p.72). It is important to validate what the clients are saying without making the other partner feel that they are not
A theory describes how and why events happen and how they are connected with each other. Theories bring together different information and help the therapist to be objective to determine which care plan would be the best. Theories are the groundwork for the development of a model.

Sometimes using humor with the appropriate client may assist with developing the therapeutic relationship. Skillfully using self disclosure in order to let the client know that you empathize with them can be
Essentially, the clinician teaches their patients suffering from PTSD how to replace unreasonable thought patterns with healthy, coherent ones. At the core of this talk-therapy method is learning how to avoid reacting in a purely emotional manner (which is another debilitating symptom of PTSD) and replacing it with self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-reliance. CBT is particularly effective with PTSD clients because it helps the client identify their irrational and maladaptive dogmas so they can consciously replace them with realistic beliefs. Since a human’s mind has a resilient propensity to lock onto familiar notions and remain unchanged despite the negative or stagnant outcomes of PTSD, CBT assertively addresses this phenomena by having the client complete homework assignments, partake in role playing exercises and actively tackle their own distressing thoughts. While this therapeutic
