Assume that Jack comes to you for personal therapy and that all you know about him is what he told you above. Answer the following questions on how you might proceed with Jack within a Psychoanalytic frame of reference:
1. As a psychoanalytic therapist, do you think that Jack’s current unwillingness to become vulnerable to others out of his fear of “being dependent on them and trapped by their love” has much to do with his mother’s unconditional love? How might this experience be related to his relationships with women now?
2. Jack describes his father as an authoritarian, controlling, and cruel man who apparently had conventional ideas of what he wanted Jack to become. What are the underlying psychological aspects that you see involved with Jack’s rejection of his father’s wishes? How might you use psychoanalytic counseling theory to explain the fact that in many ways he became what his father did not want him to become?
Assume that Alice and Javier come to you for personal therapy and that all you know about them is what they told you above. Answer the following questions on how you might proceed with this couple within an Adlerian frame of reference:
1. As an Adlerian therapist you will want to make sure that your goals and the goals of Alice and of Javier are in alignment. How might you go about this? What if Javier and Alice have different goals? How might the fact that he is a Latino and she of East Asian descent be significant in setting goals?
2. If you had to speculate at this moment, what are Alice’s “basic mistakes”? Javier’s? What specific Adlerian techniques might you be most inclined to employ in working with this couple?
Assume that Paul comes to you for personal therapy and that all you know about him is what he told you above. Answer the following questions on how you might proceed with Paul within an Existential/Person Centered frame of reference:
1. Paul tells you that one of the reasons he is coming to see you is his desire to accept his fate. How would you work with him to gain this acceptance? What specific things might you do to help him find ways of living the rest of his life to its fullest?
2. Do you see any possibilities for helping Paul find meaning in his life in the face of death? What diversity issues and ethical considerations might arise in your work with Paul?
The unwillingness to become vulnerable is often influenced by past relationships and how they affected a person in the past. A person who felt abandoned or given mixed messages while growing up tends to be unwilling to open up to others because they fear they might be hurt again. Those who experienced love and stability while growing up are not apprehensive of opening up to others. The unwillingness that Jack has on becoming vulnerable is a result of what he experienced while growing up. Jack says that he felt like his life entailed pushing and pulling in that whereas his father was pushy and controlling, the mother was ever-loving. The parents’ mixed signals made Jack vulnerable such that after the parents divorced, John started to use drugs. John acts tough, and many people have not experienced his soft side. John’s emotional instability while growing up is responsible for his unwillingness to open up to others. The fear of failing has made John focus on schooling, so he has opted to continue with studies instead of seeking employment.
