The first one is the fact that people cannot be think as separate from their relationships. Since relationships are one of the core factors in our life, it would be inevitable to be effected by them in different ways. The way we chose to deal with these relationships may be maladaptive and we need to learn a better way of dealing. PIT enables the therapist and patient to work on the present feelings and thoughts, which may arise in current therapeutic relationship. Even if these feelings and thoughts appears in the therapy sessions, they are also patterns of thinking and feeling in real life settings.
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
This characteristic is meant to create a stable structured relationships between the client(s) and therapist, this is because of the symptoms and individua can experience with BPD and how vulnerable they may be to interpersonal relationships. When a psychologist believes the therapy treatment is not enough they may send the individual to a psychiatrist where they can be given medication as a replacement or add on to the therapy treatment. Often when an individual present paranoia, split thinking, and dissociative episodes, they are given antipsychotic medication
This are mainly related to those clients or patients whose life problems are adversely affecting or maintaining a disorder. This type of counselling involves identification of problems by the patient and measures to solve it. The measures are then tried and reviewed. This method is very useful in treating mild mood disorders.
Hence, it is not surprising that they focus on either thoughts or behaviours as reasons for emotional disturbances. Adlerian therapy and REBT attributes emotional problems mainly to unconscious schemas. They look to correct mistaken logic and faulty thinking to evoke behavioural and emotional changes. While Reality therapists are also concerned about the client’s thinking, it differs from the others as, the first point of change is usually behaviour. Reality therapists do not focus on mistaken thoughts but rather, ineffective actions that clients engage in in attempts to achieve goals and needs they have in mind, in their Quality World.
Physcotherapy can be described as the techniques used for treating mental health, emotional and some psychiatric disorders (Nordqvist,2009). Counselling and physcotherapy are known as the talking therapies where a therapist aims to provide a safe environment for a distressed client to talk about their problems in confidence with no judgement. In this essay I hope to discuss the humanistic approach to physoctherapy, I hope to explore this approach in dept and discover how in fact this type of therapy focuses on self development growth and responsibilities (McLeod, 2008).This therapy I feel is closest to my beliefs because it focuses on the individual reaching a level of actualisation as the therapist will focus on the client’s strengths. In
To prevent guilt and shame, a therapist that uses narrative therapy tend to shun away from diagnosis because of the possible labels that society places on them (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The labels may keep the family from improving (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). One of the most important factors of narrative therapy An essential element of narrative therapy is making sure that the counselor helps the client recognize his or her strengths by encouraging the family to meditate on them (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). For example, the counselor may recognize that Helen is the commitment that she has towards relationships.
Which he believed that as long as the person overcame the problems then the person would get through level. Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow are psychologies more Humanist theorists. Humanist emphasize on the need of free will and the act of individual life situations. They believe that causes the development of personality. They believe that self-actualization is the major need for personal development and that is the reason that motivates behavior.
This approach takes into account the mind, body, and soul. Adler says that you want to look for the good and encourage the positive approach when helping someone (Ivey 221-222). The person being helped is already facing a situation that they feel is terrible so when helping we don’t want to focus too heavily on the negative. When looking at the holistic approach to counseling we also want to as Adler says praise the effort someone is giving and not necessarily the end result.
They are responsible for the activation and successfully bundling both basic and model-specific factors at the completion of effective treatment (Simon, 2011). The Therapist should avoid any form of disruption, because it will threaten the therapeutic process as well as alliance (Simon, 2011). Therapist should also create a safe environment where the patient can freely express emotions and thoughts. 4. The similarities and differences between counselling and psychotherapy There are obvious differences between the two and they have different purposes in different settings for different situations, but they do have similarities as well and in the following discourse both similarities and differences will be named and discussed with regard to counselling and psychotherapy.
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
In a sense, the therapist is guiding the patient to see for himself that there is a problem — all based on discovering what motivates the individual to live life as he or she is currently. Enlightenment can only occur if an individual wants to learn (John Dewey), and MET is centered around this insight. Once initial resistance has been countered — by reflecting back the patient’s own statements about desiring better outcomes — learning can really take off. An introduction of behavioral techniques can be nicely mixed in to support the patient’s ability to better fend for himself when tempted by chemical or old, bad habitual
Assessment This patient has been taking medication because they suffered a sports injury in 2010. The pills have been prescribed from by their PCP. Therefore, the client tested positive for opiates. The client also states that they have never had any issues with drugs in the past and that they have never had any problems with their professional license or employment.
The Narrative Therapy Process Narrative therapy is unique to the idea that they are no specific rules and guidelines that should be followed in one specific way. However, there are what could be considered techniques that help the Counselor guide the client to understand and re-write their stories and change outcomes.
Person centred practice is where all service users should be treated as individuals and their care that they require and support needs should reflect this. Each and every service user will have specific individual needs and their care plans and support should be tailored to suit their needs. By seeing the person as an individual and recognising their diversity puts the individual at the centre of their care. Person centred practice is not only about supporting people with their individual support needs and care but also about getting to know the person, what their likes and dislikes are, what makes them happy and bring them joy, knowing what their values are, family situations, social circumstances and lifestyles.
