Empowerment – The strength of this approach aims to enable service users and clients to develop their inner recourses and power to address their problems they don’t treat the people, find causes or offer cures.

Running Head: PSYCHOANALYTIC THEORY Name: University: Course: Tutor: Date: Introduction This paper is intended to discuss the psychoanalytic theory as developed by Sigmund Feud. The paper will also discuss the differences between the relational and isolated-mind view of human and emotion distress. I will also discuss the Heinz Kohut’s psychology of the self. I will also take time to highlight the differences between a theory that understands emotional distress as emanating from the inside of the patient alone versus theories that understand distress as emanating from the relational contexts in which self objects needs are not being met. Further still, I will discuss the differences between the theories that see the patient’s behavior as coming from patients mind alone versus the theories that see the patient as reacting to his/her environment.
Solution Focused Therapy Paper Student’s name Institutional affiliation Solution Focused Therapy Paper Nowadays the modern psychology gives us many different ways of solving problems. It provides us with various methods how to come out of depression, how to live through a tragedy, how to change our life for better. In this paper I am going to talk about differences between solution- focused therapy and narrative therapy and also about the therapist’s role in these approaches. Solution- Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a psychological approach which differs from any others traditional methods in many ways. It is about focusing on client’s strengths and previous successes rather than on his past failings and problems.
When a person suffers with psychological distress the way in which they interpret situations can become skewed, which in turn has a negative impact on the actions they take. He named these cognitions "automatic thoughts" because he believed that people were not necessarily aware that the cognitions existed, but that they could identify these types of thoughts when questioned closely. Beck believed that pushing his clients to identify these automatic thoughts was integral to overcoming a particular difficulty (Westbrook et al, 2007). Beck was later influenced by Ellis in his work around Behavioural Therapy and the idea that people can overcome psychological issues by altering the way they perceive an experience and in turn use this to change their attitude and behaviour towards experiences which enable the person to have positive feelings instead of negative. Becks studies found that patients’ automatic thoughts fell into three categories, the patients had negative ideas about themselves, the world and/or the future and these thoughts could lead to anxiety and depression.
Personal integration in counselling psychotherapy Introduction. Being a good therapist some would say is about being human with another human being and not about applying theory, others may find it hard not to deal with the theory, using it constantly, thinking about theory in relation to each question that could be asked while being with the client. I would suggest that theory needs to be part of me, and I need to be part of the theory. Integrating theory allows it not to be different from me, it allows theory to be part of me. Horton (1999), regarded personal integration as a desire to clarify what is a model of counselling or psychotherapy, then use the conclusion as a way to structure the elements for an analysis of thinking in practice.
There is Coping Skills, which has an element of 'self-verbalisation' to ourselves and the result of the way we behave. This aims to reduce and prevent stress by teaching service users such as clients suffering from schizophrenia what to say and what to do during difficult situations such as feeling angry or paranoid. Problem-Solving Skills encourage clients to identify and define their problems, generate solutions to their problems and choose the best way to act on their problems and review their progress. Cognitive Restructuring aims to focus on challenging and modifying clients’ unrealistic or negative thoughts. Finally, Structural Cognitive Therapy aims at client's beliefs, which cause problems.
He now championed a new more active and directive type of psychotherapy which he refereed to as Rational Therapy (RT). In RT the therapist sought to help the client understand and to act on the understanding that their personal philosophy contained beliefs that contributed to his / her own emotional pain. The new approach stressed the need to actively work to change a clients self defeating belief or behaviour by demonstrating their irrationality, self defeatism and rigidity.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Theory? Cognitive Behavioral Theory is a psychotherapeutic approach, a talking therapy that aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure. The title is used in diverse ways to designate behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, and to refer to therapy based upon a combination of basic
