Peplau’s theory of interpersonal relations is based on the nurse and patient developing a type of interpersonal relationship, which developed into a type of partnership, where they are both active members in the patient’s care and outcome. The client is the decision maker and the nurse is there to provide guidance and support to help the patient reach their desired goal (Pearson, 2006). Peplau’s nursing background mostly involved psychiatric patients. She became increasingly involved and interested in psychiatric issues when serving in the United States Army and working at the 312th Station Hospital and School for Military Neuropsychiatry for the European Theatre, during World War II.

Theory Critique: Wilson Joff Hall Liberty University Summary of the Content In her book Hurt People Hurt People Dr. Wilson (2001) expresses the concept of unseen wounds and how to break a cycle of hurt begetting hurt within the therapeutic relationship and on the path toward health, well being, and wholeness. Dr. Wilson (2001) explains how “we wound ourselves and others with the self protective maneuvers we chose early in life” (pg. 124). The author begins her book with an examination of unseen wounds and deep seated roots that emerge within one’s childhood, family patterns, and social experience during their upbringing. Wilson describes systems of hurt that have developed from within one’s experience (particularly from childhood) that lend themselves toward systems of hurt being repeated and or cycled throughout the individuals continuing life.

In the 1890s Sigmund Freud developed a theory called psychoanalysis.

In the early 1960’s, Glasser introduced reality therapy, essentially in response to what he believed were shortcomings in the Freudian psychoanalysis model, in which clients are not typically held responsible for their own behaviors. In the Freudian model, human behavior is largely dictated on a subconscious level, based on past experiences, and often beyond our own conscious control. To Glasser, this approach was mired in futility.
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.

Running Head: History of Art Therapy and Fine Arts History of Art Therapy and Fine Arts Lonna Shelton-Soward Liberty University Abstract In 1942, a British artist by the name of Adrian Hill introduced art therapy to the world of counseling. Hill unlocked the door to a new method of therapy for psychologically disturbed individuals to use with their therapist through a nonverbal form of communication. He used art therapy as his outlet to express his inner most thoughts and emotions in an unspoken manner while in the hospital recovering from tuberculosis. Hill brought to the forefront the various types of therapy used today with patients/clients. In the early 20th century mental health professionals took an interest in the artwork being created by psychologically sick patients.
