This assignment is worth 50 points.
View the following three videos:
1. Gloria and Fritz Perls 2. Gloria and Albert Ellis 3. Gloria and Carl Rogers
It is a good idea to take notes as you watch the videos.
You are to review and critique each therapeutic technique as well as compare/contrast techniques. Integrate terminology and concepts from the weekly readings. Describe therapeutic listening techniques used, techniques used to increase client participation, techniques that demonstrate empathy, mindfulness techniques, stages of change, etc.
Address the following questions. Which therapist encourages rapport? Who connects with Gloria? Who promotes change? Who exhibits mindful awareness? Delve deep…this is not simply a summary of each style, though that will be part of the assignment. What do you notice regarding verbal and nonverbal communication of the therapist? What techniques does each therapist use or fail to use to encourage dialog and building of the therapeutic relationship? Use specific examples from the videos to support your comments.
Which approach matches your style? What about ethical issues? What appear to be the “common factors” among these three approaches?
A thorough critique will range from 6-10 pages. Be sure to have an introduction to your paper and a conclusion. Use APA style.
