Counseling Theory in Practice


Apr 26, 2018 9:00am ‐ Apr 26, 2018 4:30pm


Credits: None available.

Description

An overview of key concepts and techniques based on these theories: psychodynamic, experiential and relationship-oriented, cognitive behavioral, postmodern, and integrative approaches to counseling practice. Emphasis is on developing a systematic way of drawing on various techniques applicable to counseling diverse client populations. The presenters interact with the attendees with the aim of making the workshop practical and lively.

The emphasis of this LI is on bringing contemporary theories to life by formulating an integrative counseling style that addresses the thinking, feeling, and behaving aspects of human functioning. This integrative perspective draws from the following theoretical orientations: psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, reality therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and narrative therapy. Emphasis is given to developing an integrative approach to counseling practice. The integrative model demonstrates ways to employ a variety of techniques at the various stages of counseling – from the beginning of the counseling relationship to the evaluation and termination of the therapeutic process. Presenters will explain their personal perspectives on developing an integrative approach. Both the advantages and disadvantages of an integrative approach to counseling are described. Each theory is discussed with a common framework. Emphasis is on the practical applications of the various theories to working with diverse client populations.
