Following on from the first Approaches and Therapies module, this module provides you with a further opportunity to critically explore psychological approaches and therapies. You will gain an insight into the development of professional relationships and the interventions applied within a therapeutic framework for Behavioural and Cognitive practice. You will learn about how these psychological approaches are used to understand human nature, with an appreciation of the social and historical development of these approaches. You will then use this knowledge to understand how to manage the therapeutic relationship and apply therapeutic techniques to support a client. This theoretical knowledge will then be illustrated with video examples to show you counselling in action. You will also be invited to begin developing your own therapeutic philosophy integrating the different approaches and therapies that fit with you as an individual, and you will share your therapeutic philosophy with peers at the end of the semester.
Topics covered in this module include: • History of the Behavioural Approach with focus on Skinner • Behavioural Theories of Human Nature and Personality • Therapeutic Relationship in Behaviour Therapy • Therapeutic Techniques in Behaviour Therapy • History of the Cognitive Approach with focus on Beck • Cognitive Theories of Human Nature and Personality • Therapeutic Relationship in Cognitive Therapy • Therapeutic Techniques in Cognitive Therapy • Compare, Contrast, Critique, and Apply • Integrative Therapy: REBT • Integrative Therapy: Gestalt Therapy • Eclectic Therapy: Multimodal Therapy Please note that these topics are subject to change dependent on staff availability, unexpected circumstances, and the assessed needs of the students
