Last week, you learned about behavioral/cognitive theories. This week thus far, you have read about, seen, and heard clinicians use a behavioral/cognitive theoretical orientation, or approach, with a client. In this Discussion, you are asked to consider the strengths and weaknesses of using a behavioral/cognitive approach with a specific client.
To prepare for this Discussion:
• Review the readings, including Client Profile 2: Aaron, and media segments for this week.
• Consider what kind of client might be best served by a behavioral/cognitive approach.
• Think about how a behavioral/cognitive approach might work with Aaron from Client Profile 2.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 a brief summary of the strengths and weaknesses of using a behavioral/cognitive approach in working with Aaron. Be sure to provide evidence to support your decision.
