Gestalt therapy is an existential and phenomenological approach that basis it's principles on the "here and now" state of mind. It has the belief that humans are able and have the desire to form their own solutions to conflicts they experience, as well as being able to learn and grow from them along the way. During the use of Gestalt therapy, past experiences are not looked at, but more so the focus is on what is being said and done at the moment. The primary focus is on the process of helping the client develop techniques to help them learn how to process what's taking place in the present moment whether its in the therapeutic relationship or what's happening in their life at that moment. Applying this type of therapy to the case study presented
Introduction: An educator is an individual whose work is to pass the required information to the students. A professional educator is effective in all they do and is responsible for the creation of an interactive learning environment. To do this, an educator should understand the requirements needed to satisfy the goals and objectives of their curriculums as well as the content. As much as the work of an educator is to disseminate the required information to the students, they also ensure that all the expectations of these students are met and if possible exceeded. An educator uses a variety of teaching strategies which includes classroom management to ensure that the purpose of education is achieved.
Also I will take her feedback to inform me how effective the resources used supported her learning needs. In conclusion, the learner’s profile is a good indication of identifying any individual needs prior to the commencement of a program. I will help inform you to plan your teaching to meet the learning needs of the learner in a diverse ways. However ongoing individual assessment will provide a good route to progression. Not only that but can also highlight potential barriers to learning and the necessary steps to resolved them.
This is why teachers must construct ways to engage students in the subject matter. This type of teaching would include opportunities for “hands-on” learning and activities requiring group work. I feel real-life examples help the students see the relevance of the material and group work will give my students valuable social and communication skills.
The importance of counseling comes from the time and effort that is put into it by the counselor giving attention to the client, and the client pouring out the problems that is occurring in their life. In the treatment process, the aspect of counseling gives inspiration, vision and positively to the client. Counseling is the verbal way to describe therapy. Therapy is the cooperative venture for challenges the clients in translation for the insights in action to the real world. Therapy is used for the reviving of a person’s life, and the verbal form of counseling gives a client a sense of purpose to continue on in life and to establish an sense of being in a better place in the future.
As a future teacher I believe that students can be taught self-discipline. Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory suggests that people learn from one another through observation, imitation and modeling. This is why modeling is an essential aspect of my philosophy. It is important for teachers to model the behavior they expect from their students. I believe that students are basically good, but there are times when everyone needs redirection and guidance.
Clients are encouraged to face the facts about oneself, and learn that in order for others to accept them, they must learn to love and appreciate themselves. Gestalt therapy would help Joan realize that she needs to focus on the now and her current relationship with Hal, as her disapproving relationships in the past are not an important factor in the mending of her current relationship. Furthermore, Gestalt Therapy is a strong form of counseling in how it is personally tailored to each individual, making it applicable across cultures. However, this could cause difficulties in Joan. She seems to contribute much of her self worth as a human to the acceptance she receives from her relationships.
Adlerian therapy emphasizes the impact family and early experiences have on the client’s overall view of the world. Adlerian therapy allows the client to tell their individual story from their own perspective without placing judgment or opinion on how other’s may view the situation. Adlerian therapy focuses on the bigger picture of one’s life. This approach allows individuals to gain insight about themselves, purpose of life, and how to escape the negative perceptions of self, others, and the systems of which they are a member. After exploring these areas, individuals are then able to identify areas of need and develop goals for themselves away from the negativity.
The myth of value neutral psychotherapy has been shattered. Therapist trainees are encouraged to examine their personal assumptions and biases and to increase their own self-awareness, so that they will not impose their values on clients in psychotherapy. Nevertheless, no one is free from values, and sometimes psychologist may need to discuss their values with clients for the following reasons: First, psychotherapy theories have value-laden components and they are often hidden or taken granted; these values may not be consistent with what clients want. Therefore, clients have the right to know them to make informed choices about their treatments. In addition, sometimes psychologists cannot put aside their values in psychotherapy; values is communicated through what they do and how they do it—the way psychologists relate to clients as well as in their theoretical orientations or treatment modalities.
Working with a client to bring down their resistance is a great way to connect with the client, so if they put a wall back up, we should keep pushing the clients to work through their problems. If a therapist moves to fast yes, we should slow down, but as a therapist, we should continue to move forward. If a client asks me personal questions that are relevant to the topic, I do not see a reason why I cannot answer the questions. If we want our clients to open up to us we have to be able to share parts of our lives with them is need be. I agree with the therapist that cares little for the DSM lV.
