The Amish do not use commercial health insurance; They believe they are responsible for their own group (Dickinson, Slesinger, & Raftery, 1996). Typically each community will have an insurance fund which is there to help families should they incur an unmanageable expense. Therefore, nurses should be ready to speak to husbands and church elders about any issues regarding care. Nurses should prepare to see large groups of visitors as the Amish community plays a strong role in the health concerns of its
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.
Because of this issue people require a more excellent way to cope, such as counseling. There are three types of counseling, Secular, Integrated, and Biblical counseling. The majority of counselors is secular and holds the view that religion should not be in the counseling office. Christian counselors generally look to faith traditions and the bible in dealing with mental health and psychological problems. Larry Crabb demonstrates all three in His book “Effective Christian Counseling”.
Observation Proposal: Psychology 315 Chester McNaughton February 03, 2013 City University Observation Proposal: Psychology 315 In this observation project the observer will be observing an experienced marriage counselor counsel and assist one couple with their distressed marriage. The intent of this project is to observe techniques used based on the understanding of learning theories presented in the student introductory text Learning and Behavior (Mazur J.A., 2013) particularly the principles of shaping and learning by observation. This observation should enhance the observers ability to appropriately use techniques to apply these learning principles in the “live” dynamic environment of the client – therapist dialogue. The observer would like to help future clients achieve their goals of fulfilling meaning significant interpersonal relationships. Many people want relationships that are respectful, loving, mutually aligned, supportive, and positive.
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. Minuchin’s awareness of this cultural deprivation in counseling was monumental, and escalated rapidly the need for empirical research and study for low-income and minority families. The apparent need for structural counseling for Moe and Wanda was evident; the lack of individual sub-systems, clear boundaries and ineffective organization. An overview of the treatment will include (Gehart, 2010): the therapist joining the Moe and Wanda system and conforming to their style, forging a union; mapping the family including structures and boundaries, this process will include assessment and review; thirdly the therapist will integrate in the system to redevelop the structure and minimize the failing systems they identified in the initial assessment. ROLE OF A COUNSELOR: The therapist began Moe and Wanda’s
He was the father of client-centered therapy. He believed that patients should basically learn to understand themselves, so they could help themselves (Hall, 2007). It is an interesting theory that Rogers had in those early days of practicing as a psychotherapist. “Rogers started to use the expression ‘client’ instead of ‘patient’ due to the fact that the individuals that he was counseling did need help but not within the same regard that a medically ill person does” (Hall, 2007). In 2011, it is common practice to call a person seeking therapy a client instead of a patient thanks to Carl Rogers (Hall, 2007).
Because of Jehovah witnesses strong religious conviction against whole blood, red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets. Instead most of them would agree on having dialysis. Jehovah witnesses accept the no blood replacement fluid treatment. Physicians use this method in spite of all risk that exists when performing major surgery on patients. This is a major challenge for medical professionals.
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.
There are several psychologists that believe mental health can be subdued by prescription medicine and/or positive reinforcements. Christian counselors know that Christ is THE truth (see John 14:6). The Christian faith allows for a strong conviction that Christ is the only healer for individuals with mental illnesses. When asked what Christian counselors believe, Dr. Kimberly Hartfield (2011) explains it as the following, “Christian counselors believe that the Bible is the ultimate standard of authority for believers, and that the power of the Holy Spirit adds God’s enabling Spirit to the counseling process.” (Hartfield, 2011 para. 2) Discipleship Counseling Through the use of personal and professional experiences, Dr. Neil T. Anderson (2003) lays the foundation for future counselors to use as a guide to reach mentally ill individuals in his book Discipleship Counseling (Anderson, 2003).
