Course Description

Counselling Methodologies: Psychodynamic and Humanistic Modalities (PSYC 6153) is a review of the most important contemporary psychodynamic and humanistic approaches of counselling and psychotherapy, focusing on: underlying philosophical assumptions, major concepts, views of personality, the therapeutic process, the counsellor’s role, typical interventions, and targeted outcomes. The current approaches to counselling and psychotherapy selected for this course will also be explored with respect to the relations between theorists and their theories, as well as between counsellors and their clients. Cross-cultural and gender-related aspects will be considered for each of the counselling schools under study. Students will endeavor to recognize the links between theory and practice, between constructs and applied techniques or interventions. Students will integrate the course material from: the textbook, supplementary articles, professor’s notes, and online class discussions. Students will also be encouraged to conduct their own further research on topics of interest, by accessing library resources and pertinent professional Internet sites. Students will examine the similarities and differences among approaches, and thus lay the foundation for the development of a personally meaningful approach to counselling.

Course Learning Outcomes

Counselling Methodologies: Psychodynamic and Humanistic Modalities (PSYC 6153) offers students the opportunity to learn about six of the most important contemporary psychodynamic and humanistic approaches to counselling: psychoanalytic counselling, Adlerian counselling, Jungian counselling, person-centred counselling, existential therapy, and Gestalt therapy.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to

  • describe and critically evaluate the main theoretical concepts associated with each of the six counselling approaches under study,
  • connect the main theoretical constructs with specific practical techniques and interventions proposed by each school,
  • appraise current developments in the field as they relate to the six counselling approaches under study, and
  • outline essential aspects of their own developing approach to counselling.

  1. The Use of the Couch in Psychoanalysis

As you may have learned by now, in classical or “orthodox” psychoanalysis, Freud would invite his clients (called “analysands”) to lie down on a couch while they were talking freely about anything that came to mind, as they self-reflected (the process of free association). All along, Freud would be seated on a chair behind the client, out of the client’s sight, and only interject verbally from time to time, in order to encourage further client self-exploration. Nowadays, many psychoanalytically oriented counsellors prefer to dialogue with their clients face-to-face.

  • What do you think is gained and what is lost in the face-to-face format?
    • Do you think that the 3 basic tools of psychoanalysis (i.e., analysand’s self-reflection and insight, analysand’s transference, and therapist’s countertransference) can be used more or less effectively in the couch format compared to the face-to-face setting?
    • The last post is due at the end of Sunday of this unit.
  1. Jung’s Concept of Individuation

Jung believed that one of the main purposes of analysis was to assist clients in their process of individuation. As a counsellor operating from a Jungian perspective, how would you practically work with the client towards that goal?

Here is a question which, I hope, will start our discussion about Adlerian counselling. As you read the personality descriptors identified by Adler to be typically associated with the various birth order positions, would you recognize them to be reasonably true (i.e., they were never intended to be 100% accurate for everybody) in your case, or with people you know?

Remember that you can find more of those descriptors on the website of the Adler Institute of San Francisco.

  • The Core Conditions of Therapeutic Personality Change
    • In his seminal article The Necessary and Sufficient Conditions of Therapeutic Personality Change, originally published in 1957, Rogers identified six core components of what he considered to be the effective approach to counselling. Since then, few theorists, commentators, or clinicians have raised any arguments against the qualifier “necessary.” However, the label “sufficient” has been targeted by a number of critics.
    • Based on your understanding of the humanistic approach to counselling in general and the person-centred school in particular, evaluate these conditions on whether or not the “core conditions” are indeed sufficient for producing a “therapeutic personality change.”

    • Intervention Module: Using Metaphors to Destigmatize Mental Health
    • Let me start our discussion on the Existential approach to counselling by inviting you to reflect on the use of metaphors as therapeutic interventions. In his article, Das (1998) offered some practical ideas for interventions used in logotherapy that may fall under the category of metaphoric or symbolic interventions.
    • For example, when working with a client who has difficulties in prioritizing or identifying some meaningful goals in life, it may be quite impactful to remind the client of the proverb/saying: “Do not stand among flowers and water the weeds” (Das, 1998, p. 208). Other metaphorical interventions can be art therapy techniques, guided imagery, use of symbols. Would you be inclined to use such interventions in your counselling practice? Can you think of more examples?

Assignment 3: Final Paper: Research on Selected Theory

Summary

Value: 40 % of the final Grade

Due Date: on or before 11:55 p.m. AT on Sunday of Unit 5

Learning Objectives:

  • Critically evaluate a construct(s) underlying a theoretical orientation(s)
    • Develop an understanding of how the construct(s) apply to how the theoretical orientation(s) approaches emotional issues and psychotherapy
    • Evidence understanding of some of the specific therapy interventions in more depth.

Purpose:

To learn about and critically evaluate some of the constructs and related interventions that underly theory, such as defenses, metaphors, stages of development.

Instructions

OPTION A: An in-depth account of a particular construct within one theory

As the purpose of the paper is not to rehash or summarize the textbook information, students who select this kind of topic will need to narrow down the scope of their research to one particular aspect of a counselling approach that is explored in this course. Within a specific approach to counselling, students can focus on the more philosophical and theoretical underpinnings, or on the more practical or applied aspects of that theory, such as techniques and specific interventions. Here are some examples of possible titles that would fall under this category:

  • Exploring Ego Defense Mechanisms in Psychoanalysis
  • The Use of Drawings and Metaphors in Therapy: A Jungian Approach
  • Applying Adlerian Principles of Lifestyle Assessment to Group Therapy
  • Outcome Research on Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Therapeutic Principles of Psychodrama
  • A Feminist Critique of Gestalt Therapy

OPTION B: Comparison and contrast between two theories

Again, narrowing down your topic, you may consider two constructs or sets of constructs proposed by two different theories, which lend themselves to comparing and contrasting. Theories selected must be from this course (do not select pragmatic, cognitive or post-modern theories). Here are some examples of possible titles that would fall under this category:

  • Insight and Empathy: A Comparison of the Psychoanalytic and the Rogerian Approaches to Counselling
  • Similarities and Differences between Psychodynamic Mechanisms of Defense and Gestalt Boundary Disturbances
  • Stages of Psychological Development: A Comparison of Freud and Erikson
  • Transference and Countertransference in Psychodynamic Approaches to Counselling

OPTION C: Book review

Students can select a recent book in the field of counselling psychology (published within the last 5 years) and write a book review that is both informative and critical. Students who choose this option for their final paper must consult with the professor in order to make sure that the publication they would like to review is indeed related to counselling theories and their application, and thus pertinent to this course. Students can familiarize themselves with the writing style typical of book reviews by browsing through professional (peer-reviewed) academic journals in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, and by reading as many book reviews as possible.

Structure

  • Required components: Title page, and Reference page
    • Length of Assignment: The text body of paper (i.e., not including references, title page or abstract) should consist of approximately 2,500 words, (double-spaced typed pages, Times New Roman font size: 12).
    • Format: Please, format your assignment in Word (files with extension .doc or .docx), or Rich Text Format (files with extension .rtf).
    • References: Minimum 5.
