Assignment: Theoretical Approaches Applied to Group Counseling

The orientation counselors have regarding their work is based on an awareness of their own personalities, preferences, and values, combined with the counseling theories that most reflect their understanding of members’ ways of thinking and behaving. This orientation influences the way counselors approach and facilitate group work.

At this point in your educational career, you may still be exploring counseling approaches and developing your own theoretical orientation. That is okay and expected. This Assignment is an opportunity to further explore the concepts, goals, therapeutic relationship, and techniques of counseling theories as they are applied to group work. Consider how you might incorporate elements of one or more of these approaches in your Group Proposal if you have not done so already.

To prepare:

  • Review the articles in the      Learning Resources and consider the different theoretical approaches to      group counseling.
  • View Program Three of the Evolution      of a Group video, entitled “Lecturettes on Theoretical      Approaches,” which includes psychodynamic, experiential and      relationship-oriented, cognitive behavioral, post-modern      (solution-focused, narrative, feminist, and multicultural), and integrative      approaches.
  • Download the Venn Diagram      Template from the Learning Resources.
  • Select two theories/approaches      to compare for this Assignment. Note that since the Venn diagram example      compares REBT and psychoanalytic theories, you should not select those two      specific approaches for your comparison.

The Assignment:

  • Use the Venn Diagram Template      to compare two theoretical approaches applied to group work.
  • Identify the two theories you      selected at the top of the chart.
  • Compare the key concepts and      focus (past childhood experiences, thoughts, feelings, relationships),      goals, therapeutic relationship, leadership style, and techniques of each      theory.
  • On the outside portions of the      diagram, list those characteristics that are unique to each      theory/approach. In the middle of the diagram, list the characteristics      that are common to both theories/approaches.

Assignment 1: Quantitative vs. Qualitative Research

The qualitative approach to research involves the collection of extensive amounts of narrative and written data in order to gain insight into an event, occurrence, strategy, or phenomenon. Quantitative research involves the collection of numerical measurement data in order to explain, predict, or control the interest area of research.

Under what conditions would a person choose the qualitative approach over the quantitative or vice versa when investigating a forensic behavioral science situation? When would a mixed-methods design be the best opt

Using the Socratic method, answer the following questions:

ssignment Details

The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates is known for a technique called the Socratic Method, in which the teacher leads the student through a process of questioning to come to a logically valid conclusion.

Born in 469 B.C.E., Socrates is considered one of the founding fathers of Western philosophy, even though he left no writings behind and very little is known about him. Everything that is known of his teachings is found in the works of his students, like Plato. Much of Plato’s writings are dialogues between Socrates and his students.

Using the Socratic method, answer the following questions:

Part 1

What do you think of Socrates’ conclusion that no person knowingly does evil, and therefore, all evil is ignorance?Do you agree or disagree, and why?

Part 2

If people accepted that all evil is ignorance, what implications would that have on the justice system?How would prison sentencing or the death penalty be affected?Discuss with 2 or more classmates their opinions and whether or not you agree or disagree with their statements

Where in the kidney is the renal medulla?

Kidney is bean shaped organ with a convex and a concave surface. It is internally distinguished in two functional regions: cortex part towards outer convex side and medulla towards inside.

Anatomy of kidney in LS (longitudinal section) is seen best in the diagram attached below. It shows three distinct areas within kidney: these are cortex, medulla and pelvis. An outlet, ureter, arises from renal pelvis located at concave curvature.

Renal medulla is divided in triangular renal pyramids. The renal cortex remains extended between pyramidal masses as Columns of Bertini.

Medulla is associated with nephrons and collecting ducts where urine becomes more concentrated.

Psych Discussion Response

  Original Question:

Humanistic and Existential Perspectives

Forum Assignment for the Week:

Contrast the Humanistic and Existential perspectives as they pertain to the concept of personality. Which philosophical assumptions were most important to Rogers? Using the Existential framework, how do times of change and crisis lead us to reconsider our values?

Reply t the following response with 200 words minimum.  (please make response as if having a conversation, respond directly to some of the statements in below post.)

   In looking at existentialism and humanistic perspectives, existentialism deals with those that look into the meaning of life.  Basically, existentialists look at what drives people and why people exist in the first place.  They also view people to be reliant of the world around them to exist and vice versa being the world must rely on humans to exist because humans will perceive the world (Friedman & Schustack, 2012).  In the mind of existentialists, responsibility is placed solely in the hands of the person who it is relating to.  This meaning that it looks at how someone will overcome something or not, how they will use their freedom to overcome or possibly succumb to something instead.  Overall existentialists do not value the role of the person as highly at humanistic idealists do, humanism itself emphasizes the personal worth of the individual and the centrality of human values (Friedman & Schustack, 2012).  Humanism also does look at things like ethics and love like existentialists, however they primarily look into the environment and how it affects the person.  Behavior to them is controlled by unconscious forces in a person’s environment as well as prior experiences. 

            Carl Rodgers is credited with being one of the founders of the humanistic approach to psychology.  In his mind people fell into shaping themselves based on what they believed what the best course of action.  People would do this by working hard to get what they thought was best, doing this while understanding that other people are different and that we should work towards ones best self (Friedman & Schustack, 2012).  A person must come to terms with their true nature in Roger’s eyes, following what they believe they are being pushed into is not appropriate, your true self is what matters.  Lastly, Rogerian theory brings up the idea that a person must drop all masks and blending tools so that he/she can be more open and self-trusting in what they life and personality should be. 

            Using the existential framework to look at times of change and crisis and how a person could use these to reconsider their values, quite simply when a person finds themselves in time of turmoil, it is normal to wonder and think if maybe they should change.  It is in this change where a person can realize that something is wrong or on the flipside something is right.  If a person experiences a bad break up that leaves them in complete disarray, they may change the way they act the next time they begin dating to try and weed out that experience from happening again.  The primary way an existentialist would look at this is by seeing what the person did when presented with the option of love or conflict, if they used their freedom to handle it or not handle it at all.  The world is shaped and acting in a certain way, in a sense, to existentialists the personality of the person is gone and to them it should not have been surprised that the relationship ended, but they would have been surprised that the person acted so poorly after it did because they should have known it was inevitable.
