Overview The final project for this course is the creation of a therapy plan. Students will select a case study and design a therapy plan using one of the theoretical orientations covered in the course. The final product represents an authentic demonstration competency because students will be able to apply their counseling knowledge in a real-world manner. The project is divided in to three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions ¢ Cognitive Behavior Therapy using concepts such as internal dialogue, irrational beliefs, coping-skills program, cognitions, stress inoculation, unconditional œshoulds, absolutistic œmusts, self-observation, faulty assumptions, automatic thinking, self-evaluating, self-sustaining, simple preferences, schema restructuring, emotional disturbance, cognitive distortions/errors, autosuggestion, schema, self-repetition, œfamily schemata, blame, arbitrary inferences, anxiety, A-B-C theory, cognitive triad, Socratic questioning, full acceptance or tolerance, cognitive homework, therapeutic collaboration, disputing irrational beliefs, overgeneralization, changing one’s language, magnification and minimization, rational-emotive imagery, personalization, role playing, labeling and mislabeling, shame-attacking exercises, polarized thinking, alternative interpretations, and self-instructional therapy. In the paper, you will address all of the following: ¢ Identify a case study that you would like to design a therapy plan for. ¢ Discuss how this case study would be addressed in therapy according to your chosen theoretical orientation. Be sure to include specific concepts related to your chosen theory. Avoid broad, general concepts that are not related to a specific theory. ¢ Identify possible goals and interventions appropriate for the chosen orientation. Milestone Three: Client History and Therapy Plan In 7-3, you will submit the Final Paper: Client History and Therapy Plan. It should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the main elements of the final product.
