Introduction to counseling
Why should schools have counselling specifically primary schools
Outline the essay e.g. this essay will include a introduction and description to cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), solution focused therapy (SFT) and person centered. The essay will then go on to discuss the problems that children in KS2 face in their lives and then finally the essay will attempt to establish which type of therapy is the most appropriate.
Brief history from McLeod he covers main ideas that underpin the theories that are being discussed
Paragraph 1 (500)
Introduce person centred
Understanding the live experience. It has two principles. The first is associated with creating a relationship with the client that is characterized with respect, equality and authenticity, it allows the client to be the expert in their own life. The second principle allows the client to see their problems in a different light. Phenomenological the counsellor attempts to capture the lived experience of the client. Attempts to obtain a rich picture, whilst blocking their own assumptions of the world.
History of person centred and associated theorists (Carl Rogers)
What happens in a person centred session
Why is it used? And the outcomes of the therapy? (Is the counsellor giving the client goals and aims to which the sessions are based around? Or is he or she solving the issue?)
The possible limitations of this approach?
How does it work in the school? What does it look like in a primary school setting?
