Treatment planning includes a balance of both trauma and behavioral focal point, working on ongoing behavioral problems and behavioral crises, modify distorted thinking so that families could have the knowledge to transfer, and children can learn how to talk through their experiences. Results: Cognitive therapy also incorporated with behavioral therapy practice to manage the behavioral regulation problems that commonly happens in traumatized children. Conclusions: Treating trauma related behavioral problems is a crucial part of trauma-focused treatment and is achievable if practice is done accordingly. This practice is important due to the common nature of behavioral dilemma in traumatized children (Cohen, 2007). CBT 3 Cognitive behavioral therapy is generally psychotherapy and behavioral therapy combined.
Patterns need to be considered, because the conditions within a family at times affect behavior development and personality. Understanding a client's past influences often helps uncover details that are insightful during treatment and can assist the clinician in treating the client. As a clinician, you need to establish a sense of how the client views themselves as a person, how they perceive their past, and who he or she would like to become in the future. According to the Adlerian theory, my role as a clinician would be to establish an understanding with the client, assess the client's circumstances, and use modeling to encourage the client in his or her efforts to reach their desired changed behavior. The function of
“Evaluate the extent to which Freud’s theory of psychosexual development can help us to understand a client’s presenting issue”. Introduction In this assignment I will evaluate Freud’s psychosexual theory and demonstrate that I have an understanding of this theory, examining the stages that clients are meant to go through according to freud and how its relationship to this theory effects a client’s presenting issue. I will also show how Freud’s theory has a relationship to a client’s neurotic behaviour, and look at some of the criticisms that this theory attracted from other critics, this will help me understand how it was used in practice. Freud’s greatest contribution to psychology was his theories involving psychosexual development, he had a very sexual way at looking at what happens to our mind from birth to teenage years, but before I begin to explain these in more detail we need to look at Freud himself to understand and have an idea on what sort of man he was. Freud was born in the Czech Republic on 6th May 1856, his parents were practicing Jews and were very religious, but as Freud grew up he himself, even though being a Jew never practised.
Developmental theories that influenced modern psychotherapy and supervision It is accepted that relation between therapist and client, and supervisor and supervisee are analog and similar to the parent – child relation (Hans Strupp) in the way that these relations are reparative and that they can often heal in the present deficits of the past experience between child and caretakers. It's through relationships with caregivers and other people that children learn how to apply and use their emotions, expressions, and emotional understanding that influence their being in later periods of their lives. In connection with this, for gestalt therapists is very important, considering theory of gestalt therapy, to be aware that there are other important and contributing factors except infant experiences, that also strongly influences our life and that we can not put exclusive emphasize on the early experiences. We believe that life is much more than past and that it is shaping in every moment of our life with present experiences, context and supposed future. Also, in gestalt therapy we believe that contact (relation) is in the hart of healing processes.
Summarise 2 identity theories, compare they’re usefulness for explaining real world issues discussed in chapter 1 Physical disability is real world issue Social constructionism Psychosocial Psychosocial * James Marcia and erik erikson both view psychoanalysis as being influenced by both social and personal factoris. * Erikson developed psychosocial theory through Clinical work, naturalistic observations and probably his own experiences * Our core identity is achieved when individuals have a sense of who they are and what role the play in society. * Erikson talks about how identity achievement is a lifelong development in which we are trying to resolve conflicts that arise between what us as individuals want and what the society demands * Erik himself had a very turbulent adolescent because he was a struggling artist and he was in search of his birth father but he failed. This was his identity crisis * Eriksons ideas about young peoples ‘clannishness’ can help to explain current social issues such as the prevalence of bullying in schools page 56 * Erikson also argued that people whom we consider to be very different from ourselves can threaten our sense of identity and that this can lead to aggression. This issue was, not surprisingly, one with which he was concerned since the fact that he was born Jewish put him at considerable risk in Austria prior to the Second World War.
The organisation has 2 main objectives. These are – 1. To promote and provide education and training for counsellors and/or psychotherapists working in either professional or voluntary settings, whether full- or part-time, with a view to raising the standards of counselling and/or psychotherapy for the benefit of the community and in particular for those who are the recipients of counselling and/or psychotherapy. 2.

During this time, we will set short-term, long-term goals, and process goal to give us the direction of counseling and the purpose. There must be ongoing, meaningful evaluation of its useful purposes. Progress of my clients should be measurable and definable. During my interactions with clients, I must understand their feelings, behavior, and motivations so that I can help clients to identify any negative cognitive and behavioral patterns. As I fulfill my mission as a counselor, the therapeutic process must be given the time to work if the client is to achieve their personal goals and gain the necessary insight into their lives.
(Arkowitz 1989). We will briefly critically analyse these forms of Integration comparing their similarities and differences staring with Theoretical Integration and Technical Eclecticism, and then later briefly outline Common Factors. To support this comparison we will examine and compare two working therapeutic approaches, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Multi Modal Therapy. CBT will represent Theoretical Integration, and Multi Modal Therapy will represent Technical Eclecticism. Then we will review the drive towards integration and the role that research, and common factors play.
Counselor as Scholar Practitioner Shawn P. Mahan Walden University Counselor as Scholar Practitioner Mental health counseling encompasses a wide variety of knowledge and skill sets. Obtaining a clear grasp and interpretation of these useful tools requires observance of efficacious guidelines. One of the skills necessary to demonstrate proficiency as a mental health counselor is that of becoming a research specialist. The author intends to isolate these key characteristics of development needed to meet the demands of scholar-practitioner.

Compare and contrast the ways in which the psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural approaches to counselling and make use of the counselling relationship This essay will consider the psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural approaches to counselling and how each approach uses the counselling relationship. It will compare and contrast the ways that each method uses. It will first consider the theoretical understanding of the counselling relationship of the two approaches, it will then considering the way that this relationship is then used within counselling. The psychodynamic approach to counselling places most importance on using the relationship between the counsellor and the client to explore and consider the emotions and feelings that are creating a difficulty in the client’s present situation (McLeod, p.90). The psychodynamic approach evolved from psychoanalysis, founded by Sigmund Freud, who considered that people’s behaviours are influenced by their motives or dynamics.
