For this Discussion, you will write a case conceptualization as though you were an Adlerian counselor. A case conceptualization is a report that is written by a counselor to explain presenting problems, establish goals, plan interventions, and identify expected outcomes.
In your Learning Resources, the Psychoanalytic Case Conceptualization Example examines the case of Deidre through a Psychoanalytic lens. For this week’s Discussion, you will use the Psychoanalytic example as a guide to write your own case conceptualization as though you were an Adlerian counselor.
As you review this week’s Learning Resources and media file, note techniques and interventions, and consider the role of an Adlerian counselor in planning treatment. Further, reflect on Adlerian therapy with respect to developing your own theoretical orientation. In what ways do you find that Adlerian therapy may resonate with your own point of view?
- Review the Adlerian Therapy video from this week’s Learning Resources. Take note of language and techniques used by the counselor that are specific to this theory.
- Review the Psychoanalytic Case Conceptualization Example found in this week’s Learning Resources and use this document to prepare your initial Discussion post.
- Select one of the case studies presented in this week’s Learning Resources and answer the following points as if you were an Adleriancounselor. Use your Learning Resources and the notes you took on language and technique from the Adlerian Therapy video to support your conceptualization and integrate examples from the case to support your post. Include the following:
- Presenting Problem
- Treatment Goals
- Identification and explanation of at least two techniques and interventions
- Expected Outcome
BY DAY 3
Post your Adlerian conceptualization.
Be sure to support your main post with specific references to the Learning Resources using proper APA format and citations. Your response posts may be more conversational and less formal.
