Create a 15-20-slide PowerPoint presentation that provides an overview of each major theoretical branch of counseling and approaches within those branches.
Use the following guidelines to complete your presentation:
Include a title, introduction, conclusion, and reference slide. (4 slides minimum)
Provide an overview of each theoretical framework: psychodynamic, existential-humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and postmodern. Ensure that the reader can differentiate between these overarching theories. Consider, how does the theory conceptualize the problem and how does that lead to a solution. (4 slides minimum)
Discuss at least two theories/approaches and two therapeutic techniques representative of each of the four theoretical frameworks. For example, under the existential-humanistic branch you may choose to discuss Gestalt therapy and person-centered therapy. Within Gestalt you may define and demonstrate an example of “using now language” and “empty-chair” technique. (8 slides minimum)
Utilize information from the textbook and the GCU library. Information from non-peer-reviewed resources (e.g., simplypsychology.com, about.com, and Wikipedia) will not be accepted.
Include speaker notes below each content-related slide that represent what would be said if giving the presentation in person. Expand upon the information included in the slide and do not simply restate it
