Toward a Breakthrough Model of Counseling

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

If we’re being honest with ourselves, the counseling professions are less effective than we’d want them to be. It’s hard to face that because it would cause too much dissonance: how can we continue to work so hard to address our clients’ pain if we faced the uncomfortable truth that our toolkits effectiveness was too-often limited.

But if we care about being helpful, we must face that and that our methods have changed little in decades, some would say a century: We ask questions about a person’s past and present, we listen, we reflect, we ask more questions, ideally leading a client to come up with their own insights and solutions, and if those are inadequate, tactfully proposing our own. We may superimpose a theoretical model but what we do in practice typically is the aforementioned.

So, there’s a need for a breakthrough approach, but what? 
I propose one in my PsychologyToday.com article today.
