Assignment:

The   theories you studied last week target patterns of behaviors, but they also   incorporate thoughts and feelings in the moment and over time. You continue   your application of theories to couple and family counseling by examining the   systemic-emotional aspects of relationships, the patterns of interaction   between couples and families, and the meaning associated with those   interactions.

For this   Assignment, you again watch media of counselors demonstrating counseling,   this time using humanistic/experiential and emotionally-focused theories. As   you develop treatment plans based on this week’s theories, ask yourself how   you recognize emotion in the relational dynamics of the couple or family.   Also, consider how you might know emotional changes have occurred and how you   would measure progress.

  

Application:     Applying Humanistic/Experiential and Emotionally- Focused Theories

• Formulate a theory-based treatment plan     including short-term and long-term goals for the couple or family. 

• Describe two theory-based interventions you     would use and justify your selection. 

• Explain one anticipated outcome of each. 

Based     on the theory demonstrated in the emotionally-focused media: 

• Define the problem. 

• Design a theory-based treatment plan including     short- and long-term goals for the couple or family. 

• Describe two theory-based interventions you     would use and justify your selection. 

•  Explain one anticipated outcome of each.
