There are many theories behind the different counseling modalities. Some counselors will adhere to one specific theory, focusing treatment types to the tenets of that theory. Other counselors will adopt a more eclectic counseling foundation, drawing key ideas from multiple theories and combining many treatment types to suit their clients.

For this assignment, create a chart that outlines the following counseling theories: behavior theory, psychoanalytic theory, cognitive-behavioral theory, and person centered theory. For each theory, cover the following aspects:

  • Goals of therapy
  • Types of treatment
  • Theoretical explanation of where substance use or abuse stems from
  • Characteristics of the client that would be the best fit for this theory

Download a copy of the chart template which you can use to create your chart.

Once your chart is complete, address the following questions:

  • Describe the similarities and differences between the different therapeutic theories.
  • According to you, which approach or combination of approaches best fits you as a future counselor?

Write a 4–5-page paper (including the chart) in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M1_A3.doc.
