All these humanistic psychologists did researches on freedom , values, tragedy, human potential, spirituality, personal responsibility and agreed people were naturally good. Rogers used the person centred approach to increase an understanding of human personalities and relationships. The person centred approach views the client to be in control of their own their own potential growth. Rogers (1961) argued that the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are vital, and what experiences have been deeply buried. Person centred Counselling is a relationship therapy”.
This is usually as a result of the client needing to gain more from their sessions rather than continually going over the same issues. Failure to recognise any of these issues can lead to a breakdown in the communicating process and often set the client back to where they started. The client needs to feel valued and listened to. To miss the signs being sent could have major effects on the client. Should a session stop proceeding forward and the client become silent, this would be a good place to find out exactly how they are feeling, and
Integrative Theory Paper Janelle D. Osborn Fort Hays State University Abstract Psychotherapy integration attempts to look beyond and across the confines of single-school approaches to see what can be learned from other perspectives and how clients can benefit from a variety of ways of conducting therapy. (pg. 466) “The majority of psychotherapist do not claim allegiance to a particular therapeutic school but prefer, instead, some form of integration.”(Narcross 2005; 2007) (pg. 466) This paper will inform the reader of this writer’s personal theoretical orientation, its key concepts, and the writer’s view of the role as a counselor, the therapeutic goals, its relationship issues and central techniques and methods. This writer’s personal theoretical orientation includes the integration of several theories and techniques from several counseling models.
The main ideas of “Talent is Overrated” is to help people have better look of talent and get to know and learn about deliberate practice. People who looking for this book are usually people who educated or people who seeking for success and finding way to practice rightly. In beginning of the book, Colvin said: “Many people not only fail to become outstandingly good at what they do, no matter how many years they spend doing it, they frequently don’t even get any better than they were when they started.” (3). After years of trained, yet these people still stuck in their current level and they need to find new ways to change it. “Talent is Overrated” is the best answer for them.
A personalised induction will always be more effective The human race may look and behave similarly but actually we are unique. We have very different likes, dislikes and our views and perceptions are very varied. Give a group of people the same book to read and everyone’s opinion of the book and its characters will not be the same. One of the biggest steps for a client is actually admitting that they need help; the next thing for the client is finding the right therapy for them. If they choose hypnosis then it is down to the therapist to give the client their very best care no matter what the problem is.
I believe one style of induction would not work for everyone there would be far more people with negative view of hypnotherapy and the outcome may differ immensely. On completion of my partner’s induction i have found that it does create successful relaxation and i believe that if used for other functions, such as area in a person’s life that need direction or assistance it would definitely create the desired outcome. In a short note, it is very important that the affirmation mean something to the person who will be using them. Standard affirmation such as ‘each and every day, i am getting better and better will help most people. Personalised affirmation will be more specifically tailored to the problem at hand and consequently be more effective using standard scripts as anything more than a template for a therapist to expand on and adapt would be providing a less than satisfactory treatment plan for the client, as it may not help them.
EVALUATE THE CLAIM THAT PERSON-CENTERED THERAPY OFFERS THE THERAPIST ALL THAT HE/SHE WILL NEED TO TREAT CLIENTS I, Introduction of the Person-Centered Therapy, the characteristics of Carl Rogers' counselling method II, The practice of that and some results III, Its critics IV, My opinion about whether this method offers the therapist all that is needed to treat clients I, What 'Person-Centered Therapy' means Person-Centered Therapy is a humanistic approach of counselling with the concept that clients are the ultimate agents of self-change of their lives. This theory emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship as one built on unconditional positive regard and accurate empathy, focused on uniquely human issues -with a special regard to the present, 'the Here and Now'-, such as the self, self-actualisation, hope, love, meaning, becoming- that is, a concrete understanding of human existence. This psychological method differed from those generally used that time such as behaviorism -Pavlov's conditioned reflex- and psychoanalysis- Freud's psychoanalysis. The 'father' of the Person-Centered Therapy was Carl Rogers (and other psychologists i. e. Abraham Maslow) in America in the middle of the 20th century. He professed that clients (all individual) has the internal resources they need for growth, and they are their own best authority on their own experience , therefore fully capable of fulfilling their own potential for growth.
The main therapeutic techniques are: Logotherapy, the “I-thou model”, and the self-in-world concept. However since existential counseling is not a technique driven therapy, techniques from other therapies can be used effectively with an existential therapeutic focus. It appears applicable to a wide variety of counseling situations in which clients are seeking to resolve issues concerning the ultimate ‘meaning of life’ and does focus on the collaborative nature of the counselor – client relationship. Running Head: EXISTENTIAL COUNSELING 3 Existential therapy or counseling is classified as a humanistic theory by Maslow due to its focus on helping people achieve their full potential in life (Maddi, 1978). It is viewed more as an attitudinal or philosophical approach to counseling rather than a theory of therapy because it is loosely based on existential philosophy and it is not tied to any particular therapeutic technique (Sharf, 2004).
Why is it that only a small number of these people are actually making a change? Experts of the conventional method say that the problem origins from basic human motives such as fear of change, lack of readiness, unwillingness to make sacrifices and sabotaging ourselves. In contrast with this Ibarra believes that the problem is not in our motives but in the conventional methods on how to change careers. Based on her research studies she found show those who use the conventional method tend to look for a change for months or years. She says the key of success in changing careers is using the practice of “working identity”.
The process will continue till self-actualization is reached. Self-actualization is the peak of Maslow's motivation theory. This theory is about the pursuit of reaching a person’s full potential. Self-actualization is never fully satisfied, unlike the lower level needs. There are always new opportunities for a person to continue to grow psychologically.
