Theoretical Framework and Theoretical Application

Theory is often described as the foundation from which counselors build the therapeutic experience. If the foundation is not solid, then the structure will crumble. Building from this image, we can see that for the outcome of a successful counseling experience, the implementation of a theoretical perspective is vital. This project will allow you to analyze various concepts of a theory, apply its principles and diversity considerations, support its implementation with a client via research evidence, and solidify your personal counseling approach. This paper will enhance your understanding and application of this theory, thereby increasing your confidence in your skills as you progress through the program.
