ASAP Personality Theories

profilerocketmail

Imagine that you are a psychologist working with a population of individuals that tend to be more difficult to work with, such as sex offenders, elderly patients with dementia, or mentally challenged children. Use the Internet, Argosy University library resources, and your textbook to research the concepts of Rogerian therapy and respond to the following questions:

  • Realistically, do you think it is possible to be congruent and to extend empathy and unconditional positive regard to these clients in a psychotherapeutic context? Why or why not?
  • How do you think clinicians practicing Rogerian therapy would approach these concepts for these clients?
  • How might Rogerian therapy be a helpful strategy for these clients?
  • Is it possible these concepts of Rogerian therapy could hinder treatment?

Write your initial response in 4–5 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

By Saturday, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, September 7, 2016, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.
