The PIT provides exploratory rationale to the patient. The therapist attempts to bestow a rationale for the patient, which affirms the significance of relating emotional or somatic symptoms to interpersonal conflicts or problems. By the end of initial sessions, the link between the interpersonal difficulties and emotional problems and distress should be constructed. To be able to do this is important because it is one of the principal points for patient to remain in therapy (Guthrie,
As stated by Trotter (2013), “The Collaborative Family Work model draws particularly on three key principles: problem-solving…pro-social modelling…and role clarification” (p. 54). Skilled welfare practitioners can provide assistance to clients experiencing difficulties within their family dynamic. Trotter’s (2013) Collaborative Family Work model offers strategies working with families and involuntary clients, with the emphasis of collaboration between practitioner and family members in developing strategies for learning new skills to improve their lives and situation. The model also prioritises the choice of goals which are set by the family members to resolve issues through therapy using strategies such as Trotter’s (2013) RIDGES process which
It is important that the counselor makes questioning an important part of the therapy (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The purpose of questioning is to make sure that the family will participate in communicating their experiences (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). When members of the family begin to tell their point of view, the way in which each person was affected is revealed (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The therapist may be able to reach the family members that may have been considered as distant or hostile. Individuals like Gary may be able to feel heard without feeling judged.
Family systems therapy is basically evaluating the family system functioning as a unit and there are a few types of family therapy that uses this approach such as “structural family therapy, intergenerational family therapy and strategic family therapy” (Family Solutions Institute MFT Study Guide). The approach I think most useful would be structural family therapy which examines the family relationships, styles and common attitude during a therapy session. This allows the therapist to get a better understanding of what is going on in the family and the best way to solve
The Structural Family Therapy Model, stated by Minuchin, “explains how families maintain problematic behaviors…” along with what is written by Minuchin and Fishman, “…which leads to symptom reduction because a new structure develops in the family…” (as cited in Reiter, 2016, p. 25). This model brings attention to how the behaviors and individual roles of family members changed due issue(s) that presents itself within the family structure. The issue of L.E.’s substance use is the cause in the change of roles as the client continues her substance use. As L.E. is the mother of B.V., and B.V. is her adult daughter, but is also a mother to her son; hostility between the two, because of the presenting issue.
Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is a strengths-based, future-focused therapeutic model that was developed under the leadership of two social workers, Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg, and a team of interdisciplinary colleagues at the Brief Family Therapy Center in Milwaukee (de Shazer, 1985; de Shazer et al., 1986). The SFBT approach to helping clients provides a set of therapeutic techniques for building client competencies and helps clients discover workable solutions to their mental health problems (Berg & De Jong, 2008). An emphasis of SFBT is on the process of developing a future solution rather than the

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

Case Summary Before a counselor is able to decide what the first step is in helping a client, they must conduct a proper screening and intake interview. Through this process the counselor is able to establish a trusting relationship with the client; as well as gain insight into his demographic information, referral reasons, current situation, previous counseling experience, birth and development history, family history, medical history, and educational/vocational background (Joshua & Brandé, 2015, p. 129 -132). Based off of the intake interview the counselor has a general idea about who the client is as well as what he needs moving forward. When screening a client, a number of questions can be asked in order to gain insight as to what the client may be struggling with or who the client is as a person. For the purpose of this study the most important questions that will be asked are as follows: what past careers have you had, what disciplines have you explored before, who influences you in your choice of careers, what would you like to change about your current career, and what would you like to change about your previous education?
