From my perspective, different theoretical orientations are beneficial for different types of populations. I do not believe one theory fits all, as everyone has different attachment, and developmental levels. In the duration of the graduate program, I have been exposed to various theoretical approaches such as attachment theory, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, person-centered therapy, acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and a few others. However, I have encountered cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and play therapy to be favorable when treating children/adolescents. With my limited counseling experience, at this point, I have certain preferences in theoretical orientation when treating
Existential therapy is more of an idea rather than an independent school of psychology with certain abided rules in therapy such as psychoanalysis or behaviorism. Some key people that contributed to existential therapy are Victor Frankl and Rollo May. Not only is existential therapy an idea practised in therapy, it has also influenced researchers to branch out, developing new theory styles based on the themes of existential therapy. Jacob Moreno, for example, has come up with a therapy style known as psychodrama which revolved around existential themes. He based
A collaborative approach is often encouraged and the therapist is also encouraged to show special interest and listen respectfully to the client’s stories. The therapist should also avoid diagnosing and labelling clients but rather enable the client to often separate themselves from the most dominant story of their life to provide a space where alternative life stories can be created (Corey, 2014). The stories of our lives also play an important role in our life as they can shape reality and contribute to what we see, feel and do. In therapy often clients who have come into
ii. Both cognitive behaviour therapy intervention and behaviour training are based on the same guidelines of interviewing, formulating hypotheses regarding the case and designing the treatment plan. This means that in both interventions some practical similarities are apparent. To begin with, in both interventions the therapist should take an intake interview from the patient and all the people that are in a frequent relationship with the patient (e.g. caretakers, teacher, psychologists etc.).
I will be straight forward with the client in regards to understanding and know their current spiritual beliefs. In a counseling session with a client that is confronting their issue of depression or anxiety, probing them to elaborate on their answers may result in an undesirable session. Setting boundaries and expectations would be established for the benefits of the counselor and the counselee. Siang-Yang (2007) article would serve as a manual that would outline the phases and the requirements that will be needed to graduate to the next level. The patient would have to be actively engaged during our counseling sessions; I need to ensure the client that during our counseling sessions will be a no judgment zone.
Humanism Theories Paper Throughout the study of Gerald Corey’s textbook, therapist study several influential men who came up with the foundations of psychology, psychotherapy, and client-centered therapy. For a therapist to decide which therapeutic techniques and values they wish to implement within their practice, one must first study the men who came up with the theories behind the techniques. The two men I will compare and contrast their key concepts, therapeutic process, strengths and challenges of the theory, and challenges in cross-cultural counseling will be Carl Rogers and Viktor Frankl. Key Concepts Even though Carl Rogers is associated with Humanistic psychology and Viktor Frankl is associated with Existential psychology, they share certain concepts that utilize a range of
Since Jonas lives in a community where each person’s choice is restricted, their development is stunted in many ways in the name of stability and predictability. This novel has also depicted the relationship between memory and wisdom because as we reach towards the end, Jonas has well understood what will benefit and what will hamper the stability of the community and that has come through by his discussion of these memories with the Giver. Jonas here serves as an intermediary with the humanity, who is supposed to deliver this newfound knowledge of memories to the other people. This aspect can be closely related to prophecy in religion. Besides that, the writer has managed to invoke retrospection in the readers which relates to the social balance and the systemic alignment of a person’s vocation to their persona which eliminates; to an extent, their susceptibility to sentimentality when it comes to perception.
A comparison of psychotherapy techniques: Person-Centred, Cognitive Behaviour and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. Student’s Names Course code: Professor University/Institution Location Date Introduction For, decades, the desire to comprehend or understand how psychotherapy help individuals change their lives has been a motivating factor for most psychological philosophers, theorists, and academicians as well as practitioners and counsellors. This has led to voluminous accumulation of psychotherapy literature, giving theoretical and empirical studies on the mechanisms that facilitate the therapeutic process and changes on the clients or patients. Psychotherapy has been known to be a form of treatment which is based on systematic
Occupational therapy practitioners help people of all ages and abilities to participate in things they want and need. They provide anything that meets clients ' desires and demands. Due to the wide scope of practice, different specialized branches have developed from the original occupational therapy profession, such as art therapy, music therapy and animal-assisted therapy. Therefore, the novice occupational therapists might be ill-equipped with the knowledge of using creative activities as a form of treatment. As mentioned by the researchers in this study, the lack of resources - time, facilitates, and staff might be another reason contributed to the declined usage of creative activities in the occupational therapy treatment (Müllersdorf, p. 373).
The notion of truth comes up in many contexts, including philophy, science, and religion. Naturally, it is discussed in literature too. In The Bluest Eye and A Streetcar Named Desire, the reader in invited to reflect on this concept throught the different characters, who each have a different way of dealing with their very own vision of the “truth”. The But not all characters deal with reality the same way, and, most importantly, not all characters consider the truth as purely realitity. Truth is a more complex things, and depends on education and personal experience.
3. Are we required to calculate the SEM in our own research? Inference Techniques The textbook gives a great breakdown of each inference technique and provides detailed explanation of when it is acceptable to use a given technique. I understand the concepts, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) in particular. I have seen both of these terms mentioned in numerous research articles but I never understood why researchers applied the technique to their study.
Which gives some interest to readers to read about the research paper: for instance, moral psychology, moral enhancement, moral decision making, moral judgment, oxytocin, propranolol, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

It is difficult however; to know if the therapists that follow his model are truly practicing person-centered therapy as it was intended. The concepts of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard allow a great deal of room for interpretation. Rogers, went a step further and took the revolutionary step of recording his sessions therefore opening up the previously private domain of therapy for empirical study and assessment (Ryckmann, 1993). Rogers, himself noted that every theory, including his own contains “an unknown amount of error and mistaken inference” (Rogers, 1959, p.190). He personally believed that a theory should serve as a stimulus to engineer creative thinking.
Eagleman exemplifies that the majority of our actions and thoughts are due to the unconscious mind by sharing first-hand experiences of other people and explanations concerning how our mind works to analyze and perform activities that he supplements. I thought it was an interesting device for Eagleman to use examples and activities to further explain how the mind works, because there is no better way to learn than to perform and interact with the actual ideas being presented. He uses puzzles, like the ones dealing with cards and numbers, and visual representations that link to psychological traits like perception (p. 85-86). What sets this book apart from others is that Eagleman explains thoroughly as to why the mind does what it does when given a task, and it gives the audience an opportunity to learn about the unconscious processes we do not acknowledge behind the conscious decisions we make. In addition to the activities are real-life examples that Eagleman analyzes through psychology.
