For this Discussion, you will write a case conceptualization just as you did last week, but this time as though you were a person-centered 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.
As you review this week’s Learning Resources and media file, note techniques and interventions, and consider the role of a person-centered counselor in planning treatment. Further, reflect on person-centered therapy with respect to developing your own theoretical orientation. In what ways do you find that person-centered therapy resonates with your own point of view?
- Review the person-centered expressive arts 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 a person-centered counselor. Use your Learning Resources and the notes you took on language and technique from the person-centered expressive arts 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
