Counseling theory- person centered therapy


I need this back on Feb 1st by 6pm 

As you may have gathered through your required readings and the video for this module, the psychodynamic tradition has a rich history and has evolved over time to adapt to trends toward briefer forms of treatment. Concepts from the theory, such as defense mechanisms, transference, and counter-transference, are also used by most non-psychoanalytic counselors to supplement their work with clients.


  • Person Centered therapists do not use therapeutic techniques. Instead, they try to create a therapeutic relationship characterized by empathy, acceptance, and genuineness. Explain if you, as a therapist, would feel comfortable working with clients without techniques or would prefer to use techniques. Include information from the chapter readings to support your response.
