  3. Assess the client being described in the video and that client’s related issues using the questions provided.


Using only one case study and one counseling theory throughout your
paper, provide a detailed response to each of the following questions.
For example, if you chose Carol and Psychoanalytic Theory, you would
answer all of the following questions about Carol using the
psychoanalytic theory.

  1. Based upon all that you know about your client, identify and
    describe what in your opinion is your client’s most significant problem?
    This may or may not be the stated “Reason for referral” that is written
    at the start of each profile. Give a detailed rationale for your
    assessment and provide supporting evidence from the profile and/or
    counseling session video clip.
  2. Identify at least two secondary problems from the client’s profile
    or video that should be addressed at some point in the counseling
    process. Explain your rationale in some detail for choosing each of
    these with supporting evidence from the written profile and/or the
  3. Using your chosen counseling theory, describe what your theory says
    about the possible cause or origin of the primary problem discussed in
    question 1 above. Here, you are trying to explain the assumptions your
    chosen theory makes about problems that might be seen in a counseling
    situation. For example if you assessed your client’s primary problem as
    low self-esteem, a psychoanalytic therapist would delve into the
    unconscious whereas an Adlerian would explore family history and a
    reality therapist would look at choices the person has previously made.
    Explain in detail by including concepts and terms from your chosen
    counseling theory to support your perspective.
  4. Explain at least three counseling techniques or core principles from
    your chosen counseling theory that could be used to address the primary
    and secondary problems of your client. Explain how each of these
    techniques or principles would be applied in the counseling session and
    the expected outcome of each.
  5. Given what you know about your client’s situation, identify one
    cultural issue that is significant in the client’s life outside of
    therapy or could become an issue between the client and therapist in the
    therapy session. After explaining the issue, explain two ways the
    therapist could sensitively address this cultural issue with the client
    in a way that that avoids stereotyping or bias. Remember to integrate
    your chosen theory into the discussion.
  6. If you were to see this client on an ongoing basis, describe the
    types of change or outcomes you could realistically expect to see in
    your client, in light of the primary and secondary problems mentioned
    earlier using your identified approach in therapy. Be specific and show
    how the process of therapy with this counseling approach would lead to
    the outcomes you discuss.
