The theory you’ll be using is Humanistic psychology.
Think of an original presenting problem and evaluate it from the perspective of one of the theories we studied. You may select a problem you have observed in yourself or write about the situation of someone you know—but write the paper in the third person and in a formal style (“Mr. Smith has experienced panic attacks that have increased in severity over the past five years” rather than “I’ve been having some panic attacks lately.”)
Evaluate the presenting problem from your chosen theoretical orientation. Be sure to provide evidence from the person’s life that justifies the conceptualization. Also, consider ways in which the conceptualization might not be accurate. For example, what evidence is lacking or is contradictory? How might a counselor working from this theoretical orientation be helpful or not helpful?
Next, provide a basic treatment plan for resolving the problem from this theoretical orientation. When you plot the treatment plan, consider the reasons why each intervention, strategy, or technique might be helpful. Describe when and how you would employ each technique or strategy. Include a mini mental status exam as an appendix. Your paper should be at least 5 pages in length.
Attached is a screenshot from a resource describing what humanistic psychology is (just to help out); the basic treatment plan should have concepts from both person-centered approach and self-actualization.
