One philosopher however set the snowball when he began to use mathematical rationality and the avoidance of supernaturalism to explain physics; his name was Isaac Newton. Isaac Newton’s rational thinking appealed to many, but one fellow countryman in particular was inspired the most. John Locke was born on August 29, 1632 in Warington, a village in Somerset, England. His childhood complimented any other seventeenth century low class family raising a child; it was non-extravagant. However Locke’s father was an attorney and Puritan and taught Locke the values of people’s rights and freedom of religion.
He was an outspoken critic of his contemporaries, and was largely responsible for integrating the humanistic and existential traditions. He was born in Ohio, and after graduating from Oberlin College in 1930 he worked and travelled in Europe, where he met and studied with Alfred Adler. Returning to the USA he worked as a counsellor at Michigan State University, and studied theology at the Union Theological Seminary. In 1939 he published The Art of Counselling, notable as both a present-day classic in the field and the very first text on counselling to be published in America. Turning away from the ministry, he studied at Columbia, but contracted tuberculosis.
By using the indirect approach allows the client to undergo self-hypnosis themselves. Although Erickson preferred to use the indirect approach, it was not uncommon for him to use the direct approach when required. The indirect approach comes alongside the permissive style, which then allows the direct approach to work alongside authoritarian style. Erickson was not a therapist that liked to work with the authoritarian approach as he felt that clients would not respond, he believed that the indirect, permissive route would allow the
If we take the example of therapeutic alliance; the psychodynamic therapist assumes authority where the person-centered emphasizes equality. In my opinion, it is essential that the therapist is in the position of authority at the beginning of the therapeutic process. The client may begin to see that if the superordinate therapist accepts the client unconditionally, then they might reduce their conditions of worth and accept themselves also. This might not be as effective if the therapist is seen as an equal because the superego/conditions of worth are not generally adapted from those who are equal. As the client comes closer to insight, the therapist can start giving the control back to the client, just as the parent child relationship becomes more equal as the child becomes more mature.

Perfect,” “Marsha (the client’s mother),” and so on. Personifying the critic helps the client begin to externalize the self-accusing voice. You want him or her to experience the voice as something coming from outside, rather than as a part of the normal flow of thought. It’s easier to fight something that is perceived as external. It’s also easier to make the critical voice ego dystonic, something the client eventually rejects as “not me.” At the same time that you are identifying and naming the pathological critic, you can also introduce the client to his or her “healthy voice.” The healthy voice is the client’s ability to think realistically.
Central to the therapist's role in client-centred therapy is respecting the clients values as well as maintaining a therapeutic nonjudgmental attitude. This relationship can be even be more important, especially if the client doesn't have any family or friends. Because most clients seems to have lost a sense of value within themselves, having someone perceive them as a valuable person, capable of personal growth, should have an encouraging affect. The goals of the client-centered therapist are congruence, unconditional
Sometimes they just need someone to listen and try to understand their point of view. Many people have a reason as to why they became an addict not saying that it is right but listening and not judging can help. Treatment can be cost effective so explaining to them and giving them resources to help them out can also be very helpful. Counselors are the most important people in the healing process because the client tends to trust them and will turn to them when everything else seems to
The paper will show both positive and negative results that relate to the author's own insights and individualization. This paper will also discuss the criticisms of this theory and the individuals need for self-actualization. Along with this discussion will be a brief description of two of the influential founders of this theory. Humanistic theory is a theory of its own caliber and has raised the standard in psychoanalysis and behaviorism while focusing more realistically on human behavior. Humanistic psychology is young compared to the age of other approaches and theories, but very different in the basis that the approach focuses on individual control and free will or choices and steers away from the ideas that all human behavior is based around pleasure.
This papers aims to break down and make simpler some of the concepts around the existential-humanistic approach. This is so that the concepts make sense to any lay individual who wants to understand the approach. Initially an overview of the origins of existential approach will be discussed, followed by a discussion of the main themes of the tradition. The same will ensue for the humanistic approach and then as a final point, the incorporated values, beliefs and practices of both approaches will be combined and it will be shown how the pooled resources work within the person-centered counselling model developed by Rogers. It is probably not surprising that it is difficult to capture the essence of the
