It is vital that the therapist listens carefully and uses their intuition in order to pick up on what is mentioned and indeed also what is not mentioned noticing in particular moods and body changes in the client as they recall their past experiences sometimes a client will avoid talking about the very reason for their presenting problem for example they may talk openly about their mother but not mention their father at all and he may or may not be the problem. The therapist must learn to pick up on these clues and create a map for the client and then devise a treatment plan using a psychodynamic model, as set out in the TIME model by chrysalis described in module 1 . Sigmund Freud devised such a model, relating to one aspect of psychodynamic counselling - psychosexual development. Sigmund Freud devised such a model, relating to one aspect of psychodynamic counselling - psychosexual development.

Structural Therapy: Moe and Wanda Baines Abstract This case study is about a family couple, Moe and Wanda who committed to counseling to improve their marriage and deal with some issues that were hindering communication at their marriage. The study includes a detailed account of the Structural Therapy approach and its effectiveness during the Barnes family’s counseling sessions; a problem-solving approach (Haley, 1976) that is focused, clear, concrete, and directive. The cultural relevance and efficacy of the structural approach supports its appropriateness and selection for the case study’s basis; African-American couple Moe and Wanda Baines. This case study will present the opportunity to highlight the importance of the whole family experience in counseling versus single person counseling as it relates to ethnic populations in the United States. Minuchin’s (1974) structural approach to family therapy, with its focus on the family unit, rather than on the individual, appears to be well-suited for cultural counseling.
Literature Review LeeAnn Myers Capella University Dr. Ron Muchnik Family Therapy Models One of the family systems therapy models that I chose to research is Family Systems Therapy. Family Systems Therapy looks at the family as an emotional unit. The Family Systems approach is based on idea that families and their patterns of communication and interaction directly affect human beings and how they function. When applied to families, Family Systems Therapy allows therapists to evaluate the parts of a system (family) in relation to the whole. This theory further suggests that an individual’s behavior is informed by and inseparable from the functioning of his or her family of origin (GoodTherapy.org, 2007-2015).
Socio-emotional wellbeing is an indicator of a person’s mental health, their social habits and emotional contentment. The Family unit is the “primary social group; parents and children” (Princeton University, 2006). This refers to a person immediate family, their primary support system and the unit that they function within on a daily basis. This hypothesis was chosen because there is a personal interest in the adverse impact of paternal incarceration on the socio-emotional wellbeing of a family unit, both in a short-term and long-term context. This is an opportunity to discover the extent and diversity of the issues that pertain to this situation.
He believed that the personality is composed of three elements working together, the id, the ego, and the superego, working together to create human behaviors. Stages of Freud’s Theory The Id is the one component that is present at birth. It functions as the irrational and emotional part of the mind and contains the basic needs and feelings. It is instinctive and primitive behaviors and is the main part of our personality. It strives for an immediate gratification of desires, wants, and needs.
The advice can range from how to feed their baby or to discipline their child differently. The parent is left to wonder how to properly parent and may question his or her own parenting style and goals. As a result, every parent must make a personal accounting and choose whose opinion to take and whose opinion to leave by the wayside. After examining two articles, “Carol Dweck's Attitude; It's not about how smart you are” David Glenn (2010) and “Disciplining young children: the role of verbal instructions and reasoning” co-authored by, Blum, Christophersen, Friman, & Williams (1995), one can conclude the source and presentation of advice on proper parenting techniques be only accepted after understanding and evaluating and determining whether or not it offers a legitimate platform for the advice. Glenn (2010), although not a psychologist himself, introduces Carol Dweck to his readership.
The first of the therapies is the Psychodynamic Theory. Psychodynamic psychology focuses on trying to get 'inside the head' of individuals in order to make sense of their relationships, experiences and how they see the world (McLeod, 2007, para. 3). Once or twice a week a psychodynamic therapist would meet with Sylvia face to face and try to figure out if her depression is the result of something that she experienced or witnessed in childhood. By exploring past relationship troubles clients may be able to understand the origin of their current difficulties (Myers, 2014, p. 548).
I would ask if her mood is often solemn and how she acts in the presence of new individuals. I can gather additional idiographic information for the adoptive parents to provide prior to interviewing Clara. This information would include the first time that they noticed behavior changes in her. These changes would include her reticence to go to preschool, her eating patterns and sleeping patterns. These changes can sometimes be normal.
Ego, is Freud’s term for the psychic structure that attempts to balance the instinctual demands of the id with social realities and expectations. Superego is Freud’s term for the psychic structure that corresponds to an internal moral guardian or conscience, Nevid, J. S. (2013). 2. Give a brief explanation of one of the Neo-Freudian psychoanalytic theories, including the theorist and key concepts. The Iindividual Psychology theory which emphasizes the unique potential of each individual was develop by theorist Alfred Adler, Nevid, J. S. (2013).
