​Evaluating a Humanistic/Person-Centered Approach

Evaluating a Humanistic/Person-Centered Approach


Last week, you learned about humanistic/person-centered theories. This week thus far, you have read about, seen, and heard clinicians use a humanistic/person-centered theoretical orientation, or approach, with a client. In this Discussion, you are asked to consider the strengths and weaknesses of using a humanistic/person-centered approach with a specific client.

To prepare for this Discussion:

• Review the readings, including Client Profile 3: Patrick, and media segments for this week.
• Consider what kind of client might be best served by a humanistic/person-centered approach.
• Think about how a humanistic/person-centered approach might work with Patrick from Client Profile 3.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a brief summary of the strengths and weaknesses of using a humanistic/person-centered approach in working with Patrick. Be sure to provide evidence to support your decision.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
