Existential and Gestalt Application

23 Jul

Existential and Gestalt Application

For this discussion, you will compare how existential and Gestalt therapeutic approaches would differ in their applications to the case of Mary (see the case study narrative, “The Case of Mary,” in the Resources). Specify:

  • How each theory would conceptualize her “problem.”
  • What each theory would target for change.
  • Two specific interventions (one drawn from each theory) that you could use with this client.
  • A limitation of each theory that might impact your work with the client.

This is an extensive post that should include at least 300–500 words. Cite resources from this unit, including the videos as well as the assigned readings.

Response Guidelines

You should respond to the posts of at least one of your peers for each discussion question. These responses should be substantive and contribute to the conversation by respectfully asking questions, engaging in discussion, and offering varying viewpoints. Please review the Faculty Expectations for any other requirements for the peer responses.
