Reality Therapy, Choice Theory: What's the Difference?, sixth edition

May 2, 2016 12:00pm

Identification: ACA318

Credits: None available.

Source: Counseling and Psychotherapy: Theories and Interventions, Sixth Edition, edited by David Capuzzi and Mark D. Stauffer



Description:
Reality therapy, a practical method based on theory and research, aims to help people take better charge of their lives and fulfill their needs. Choice theory is the theoretical basis for reality therapy and is built on principles that emphasize current motivation for human choices and changes. To help clients make such changes, the counselor focuses on realistic choices, especially those touching on human relationships. The goals of reality therapy are twofold: process goals and outcome goals. The reality therapist helps clients examine their own behavior, evaluate it, and make plans for change. The outcome is more satisfying relationships, increased happiness, and a sense of inner control of their lives.



Objectives:

  1. Distinguish reality therapy from choice theory
  2. Examine major constructs, applications, and efficacy of reality therapy
  3. Explore traditional and current intervention strategies used by reality therapists
  4. Examine ethical and multicultural considerations for counselors using reality therapy

The Helping Relationship: From Core Dimensions to Brief and Integrative Possibilities, sixth edition

Identification: ACA317

Credits: None available.

*Counselors requiring New York State approval must contact ACA upon completion to obtain customized CE certificate

Source: Counseling and Psychotherapy: Theories and Interventions, Sixth Edition, edited by David Capuzzi and Mark D. Stauffer



Description:
This chapter has three purposes. First, it aids the reader in understanding the various factors that affect the helping relationship: definitions and descriptions, stages, core dimensions, strategies, and issues of diversity. Second, because we have asked each of our theory authors to discuss brief approaches as applied to the theory under consideration, we provide our readers with an overview of selected brief approaches, because these approaches, plus the impact of managed care, have precipitated an emphasis on using traditional theories in shorter term counseling. Third, because we know that, after reading this book, readers will have questions about whether to be a purist, in the literal sense of the term, and base all of their work with clients on a single theoretical set or somehow integrate the possibilities for working with clients into a more flexible way of helping, we also provide an overview of integrative counseling. We hope that the information presented in this chapter will not only help readers to understand the dynamics of the helping relationship and their application in both theory-specific and brief approaches but also aid them in incorporating these dynamics into an integrative theoretical approach.



Objectives:

  1. Examine core dimensions, strategies, and issues of diversity that impact the helping relationship
  2. Explore selected brief approaches to counseling
  3. Understand the process of integrative counseling and how counselors can ethically move towards utilizing integrative approaches in clinical practice
  4. Review multicultural considerations for counselors using an integrative approach

Objectives:

  1. Examine the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties.
  2. Explore the rationale behind play therapy, the types of clients who are appropriate for play therapy, and different approaches used in play therapy.

May 18, 2015 12:00am

Identification: ACA280

Credits: None available.

Description:
Compassion fatigue has been documented as an occupational hazard in counseling.

Supervision provides a relationship to build skills to help prevent compassion fatigue. Interns should understand counselor developmental phases and the necessity of self-care plans. To instill this knowledge, supervisors should focus on the purpose of supervision, activities of supervision, counselor developmental phases, and compassion fatigue education.



Objectives:

  1. Examine compassion fatigue and how counseling supervisors can educate interns on protective factors
  2. Explore strategies counseling supervisors can use to address compassion fatigue in supervision
