The goals of the therapy are to explore why the client/family are in need of the therapy, how family patterns maintain and facilitate the problem, what members bring from the past that continues to feed into the problem and finally to reassess the problem and suggest alternative options (Corey, 2005). The assumptions of family systemic theory
Once this person is able to change his or her perspective, he or she is able to understand why the other person has that specific behavior. In addition, many functional family therapists use reframing in therapy sessions in order to create a positive environment. “Functional family therapists rely heavily on disrupting conflictual family interactions through the use of reframes that introduce positive or nonblaming themes to describe problem behaviors” (Robbins, et al, 1996, p. 3). This can help families learn to be
The central concept is that the family can be viewed as a system, using transactional patterns and how they organize the family as a system (Ryan, 2005). Minuchin suggests therapists use techniques that can join the family system and restructure the family. The family is the primary context. The family structure consists of recurrent patterns of interactions that its members develop over time, as they accommodate to each other (Fishman, 1993). Psychotherapy approaches are typically cautious and tactful were as structural family therapy is more flexible and less formal.
Theories & Models of Counselling Choose two of the theories/models of counselling (excluding the holistic model), and apply them to Angela's Study. Whilst all counselling theories share the same goal, to make a better present and future for the client, they approach this goal through different techniques. My focus will be on Modern Psychodynamic counselling and Cognitive Behavioural therapy. I will be providing a theoretical and practical understanding of the modalities by looking at their efficacy in the given case study. My intention in this paper is to give a simplified analysis of these theories, consider how they would be employed to assist this individual in her life, and then compare both models with the holistic counselling model.

This approach to counselling is known as Person-Centred Therapy or PCT. The aim of this essay is evaluate the claim that Person-Centred Therapy offers the therapist all they need to treat a client.

Personal Theory Counseling Paper Tabitha L. Rue Liberty University Abstract The purpose of this paper is to evolve my own personal counseling style and theoretical orientation. This paper includes counseling theories that fit best with my own characteristics, experiences, values, and beliefs. My personal theory should emphasize the growth of a person and the ability to overcome struggles by looking to improve for the future. After studying the different theories, there are many that I would like to overlap in own counseling practice. Tough situations like growing up with two different parenting styles, going through a heart-breaking relationship, and having both parents go through cancer, has taught me that struggles placed in life are placed to help people get stronger and to be prepared for anything that comes in the future.
Word Count 2465 Module 1 Essay ‘ Evaluate the claim that Person- Centred Therapy offers the therapist all that he/she will need to treat clients’. I will start by discussing a brief history of person centred therapy and of ‘Carl Rogers’ theory of actualization and how it differs from other therapies theories and how by combining different theories gives the therapist more tools to treat clients. I shall continue with how he believed by providing three core conditions which he believed to be needed to be present to bring about change and how creating this environment/ situation can be difficult. Then I will discuss in more detail his theory of the personality and terminology used by Rogers and how this view point held is different to other therapeutic models. I will conclude with additional pluses and minuses of the client centred method of treatment & whether it provides all that a therapist needs to treat clients.
This will enable me to present my conclusion as to whether Person Centred Therapy offers the therapist all that is needed to treat clients. Counselling Course Assignment Can help client realise the solution but relies on them being able to be open and structured in their thinking and talking My experience in trying the person centred theory is that a client may not be able to structure their thoughts and just repeat themselves. An Introduced personality also does not always respond to open questions and clients may rely on counsellor for structure and some guidance. When practising this technique I found it limiting and the client (course colleague) was just repeating the same facts Advantages Client is given time to explore their problem and by articulating it they may become aware of aspects more clearly which can help them see a solution based on their experiences and lifestyle. Paraphrasing allows client to see that the counsellor is fully engaged and understand what they are saying.
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. I hope to demonstrate in this essay a personal integrative style that is suited to the way I propose to work, and to show how each client relationship is unique, but to always be mindful that the relationship is the therapy. Carl Jung said: "Learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul. Not theories but your own creative individuality alone must decide." (Jung 1953, cited in Hypnogenesis 2001).
