Discussion Theory Integration 19543171

 

heory implementation highlights the situations you encounter that may necessitate the integration of other theories into your main theoretical orientation. Personal experiences, within your own past relationships, may sensitize or desensitize you to the relational issues presented by clients. The key, then, is recognizing the challenges to integrating theory and knowing how to mitigate these challenges in order to provide the best and most effective service to clients. However, always keep in mind that retaining professional integrity concerning your theoretical orientation is necessary.

To prepare for this Discussion, select one of the theories demonstrated in the videos this week (either Bowenian or structural) to use for this Discussion. By Day 4

Post a brief description of your personal lens in treating couples and the theory you selected from the videos. Then, provide an explanation of one challenge you may encounter if you attempted to integrate the theory you selected with your lens of couples counseling in your professional practice. Then, explain how you might mitigate this challenge. Be specific.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the resources.
