Constructing your own approach to psychotherapy is a lifelong process, one that begins in graduate school and continues throughout your professional career. The goal of this paper is to begin this process, in which you will: 1) identify two or more theoretical approaches from Ivey et al (2011) that resonate with you and make sense with your worldview, and 2) synthesize these theories into an integrative approach.
Part One is a self-exploration of the ing process; Part Two is an application of an established counseling theory.
Part I: Theories often emerge from an examination of fundamental questions, like: “What is the essence of ing and change?” “What do I actually do when I someone?” “What am I trying to accomplish as a ing professional in human services? “How do people change and how does a er facilitate this process?” “How does culture and the sociopolitical environment shape a person and influence change?” Based on the readings for this course, your own personal experience, and at least 2 other professional references (e.g., professional journal articles, academic books—though more may be needed) write 4-5 pages describing and critiquing how you other persons. Pay particular attention to intervention strategies, personal values, and ethical issues when conducting your self-assessment. Basically, this should be a preliminary statement of your own theoretical orientation to human relations and may be stated from the point of view of the counselor, manager or other ing professional.
Part II: Select two major personality/counseling theories from your Ivey et al. text and support it with at least 2 other professional references (e.g., professional journal articles, academic books). Demonstrate how you might integrate the theories in a compatible way. Then, choose a real or imaginary situation to present as a written case study in which you are applying the theory you have chosen.
The situation may be in a counseling setting, or in a personal setting, or in a variety of professional settings (e.g. as a human resource manager, a civil rights advocate, an agency administrator, etc.). The study may be focused on individual, family, group, organization or community interventions. Finally, include a multicultural/social justice critique and multicultural/social justice strategies in your case analysis and intervention.
The way in which you present your case study and theoretical application is up to you. Here are a few suggestions (and only suggestions, use your own creativity):
1) Present a short vignette describing the situation;
2) Write actual dialogue between the er and ee(s), illustrating the theory being used; and
3) Draw conclusions that highlight what theoretical premises and strategies were being applied, and
Most of your emphasis should be placed on identifying key points of the theory under discussion and showing how you would apply these ideas in a practice setting.
Also be sure to include a multicultural and social justice critique of the theory throughout the paper. In other words, using multicultural/social justice theory and understanding discuss how these issues manifest in your principles of management and case study. Part II should be 4-5 pages in length. The entire paper should not exceed 10 pages (APA-style; 12-pt font, 1-inch margins). [30 points]
Your paper should be typed, double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins, 8-12 pages, and in APA format. You are encouraged to use other professional resources, outside of course materials, for this paper. Include a reference page for all resources used.
