Jung’s Analytical Approach to the Therapeutic Relationship Jung’s approach digressed from Freudian deterministic psychology, with an emphasis on the development of the human psyche and its potential throughout the lifespan. In opposition to Freud, Jung advocated an open, engaging and empathic relationship between both client and therapist (Hill & Mullen, 1992). Jung (1933) proposed that the ultimate aim of therapy is a joint transformation, which mutually takes place between client and therapist. At this stage, the relationship becomes critical, whereby the therapist acts as a medium through which change is possible through his influence on his patients. Jung places importance on the client and therapist interaction, rather than the methodologies adopted.
Writing in Human Services can be divided into a professional and an academic division. Professionals in this field utilize writing as a tool of service designed to ensure quality of care for clients served, while academic writing focuses on education and further research within the field. Both professional writing and academic writing have their own set of values and styling that will be analysis in this paper. Beginning with the professional side of writing in this field, one must take into account the many different branches of service that are included in the Human Service Profession. Those different branches and even the different agencies within those branches of service do show variance in their writing, yet they all write with a common
Therefore, attribution is an important component of human cognitive process, as well as an important influence on the formation of self-concepts. Psychological research into attribution began with the work of Heider(1958) in the early part of the 20th century, subsequently developed by others such as Jones(1965), Davis(1965), Kelley(1967) and Weiner(1974). 2.1.1 The Attribution Theory Heider (1958) put forward the Attribution Theory in the book The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations, which pioneered the modern field of social cognition. As one part of the larger and more complex Heiderian account of social
Race, ethnicity, gender, traditions, age, or religion may be some of the subgroups that influence someone 's behavior. When relating this theory to an attraction of love between two people we can connect how this interaction can be a social cue, and it 's discipline can define how behavior/actions and feelings can occur.

Structural Integrity of Bethel University: College of Professional Studies Throughout this essay, I will be presenting detailed information regarding my position on Bethel University: College of Professional Studies’ organizational structure and the function it has within the higher education industry. Additionally, I will provide historical background information, as well as, compare Bethel University’s current organizational structure to modern management theory and applicable frameworks. With the assistance of Bolman and Deal’s (2017) “Reframing Organizations: Artistry, Choice, and Leadership (6th ed.), I will have the opportunity to present and identify current structural strengths and weaknesses, in comparison to Bethel University’s overall mission and productivity. Moreover, with the additional support of Gareth Morgan’s (2006) “Images of Organization,” I will be able to utilize metaphorical terminology to increase my overall perspective on organizational life and the need for multi-dimensional management mentalities.
In this essay, I will discuss the cultural relevance of taste and theories that define the certainty of the statement above. Firstly, the concept of taste will be examined, along with the definitions of the terms- agency and structure in accordance to taste. Secondly, an overview of the theoretical framework that supports the definition, presenting some of the main theorists for instance Pierre Bordieu, Herbert J Gans and Colin Campbell who aim to focus on cultural qualifications of taste that challenges and critiques the idea of mass culture as a result of consumer revolution. Thirdly, different aspects of taste enhanced by fashion/cultural related examples and their significance to the theories will be discussed. Finally, I will conclude
They Say/I Say “Template” They Say/I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing, presents the reader with a multitude of writing “templates” that are designed to help foster, not only one’s basic writing ability, but also their creativity. Authors Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein even go as far as to argue that writing in this format, and later conversing in this manner, can “get us thinking critically about our own beliefs.” Specifically the template “They Say/I Say” is the most important for a young writer to master, since they believe that strong, academic writing involves, not only the writer’s opinions, but also the stances of others. In their view, “the best academic writing has one underlying feature: it is deeply engaged in some way with other people’s views.”
What are Critical Incidents? In general Critical incidents are tools that increases our awareness and understanding towards human attitudes, expectations, behaviors, and a way to interactions. They are intended to engage participants at a meaningful, personal level as they examine attitudes and behaviors that might be critical to their effectiveness in the roles they are already performing or preparing for (in the workplace, in educational settings, and in society at large). Triandis (Cultural Psychologist) were the first to use critical incidents to develop cross-cultural competence in the 1960s in his work with cultural assimilators (Triandis, 1994). Critical incidents in intercultural communication training are brief descriptions of
Everyone has a Discourse, whether they are aware of it or not. One might ask, “What is a Discourse”? James Paul Gee’s Literacy, Discourse and Linguistics: Introduction states, “Discourses are ways of being in the world; they are a form of life which integrate words, acts, values, beliefs, attitudes, and social identities as well as gestures, glances, body positions, and clothes” (6-7). Entering the writing Discourse may be difficult, as there are many styles and versions. It is common to come upon many styles of writing such as college level writing, scientific writing and technical/business communication.
Communication is the process of understanding and sharing information. It is a 2 way process that involves sending messages (verbally and non-verbally) and receiving them (listening). Effective communication is communication that is clearly and successfully delivered, received and understood, and is key for developing and maintaining positive relationships with others. With children it helps build trust between teacher and pupil, ensuring they are comfortable around you and the classroom environment. Building trust is not based solely on verbal communication.
