I have to identify and discuss what approach (ego psychology, behaviorism, cognitive-behaviorism, and crisis intervention) would be most successful with the following clients. I believe I know the correct approaches but cannot explain why. Can someone please help and also verify if my approaches are correct?
1)A 27 year old female victim of incest who was recently divorced due to her husband's infidelity. (ego psychology)
2)A 14 year old male whose parents are forcing him to attend counseling due to acting out in school. (behaviorism)
3) A 40 year old female with a drug problem who recently ended a positive long-term relationship to move in with a new associate. (cognitive-behavior)
4) A 35 year old, happily married father of three children who is an overachiever and climbing the corporate ladder but has been experiencing bouts of depression for the past six months. (crisis-intervention)
Hopefully you can find some ideas here:
