Theories of Counseling Chart
As you progress through this course, you will study several different theories, some of which have more
similarities than differences and vice versa. In order for you to learn about them more effectively and to
create a personalized tool you can use in the future, you will create a Theories of Counseling Chart
summarizing key aspects of each theory.
As you review the theories each week, complete the “Click here to enter text” box sections of this chart.
You will work on this chart throughout the course and submit it in Unit 5 and in Unit 10 as a discussion
post. You will be able to refer to this chart throughout your classes, into your fieldwork, and beyond.
Refer to the Web Sites and Readings for Theories of Psychotherapy course file document to assist you
in completing the Theories Chart.
