Furthermore, more dominant forms of psychology and practice relies upon the medical model for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning. However, this approach looks at individuals as mentally ill, for example and not as the potentiality mental growth and wellness.In the case of Vanita, three conditions, or preconditions, must be established before the official intersubjective, not subject-object, counseling relationship is formed. These conditions include a counselor being emphatic insofar as authentically being interested in looking at the world and her predicament from her point of view. Secondly, the authenticity also implies a sense of congruence,which vitally necessitates respect for Vanita as a complex totality of culture, values, beliefs, and social-environmental experiences but expects to counselor to share in his or her own humanity. Finally, unconditional positive regard for Vanita’s third failed relationship, while not necessarily something with which every therapist could personally identify, dictates that judgment be suspended for the sake of establishing a safe space full of acceptance and the equal veneration for Vanita’s optimal development and wellness.Then, create a transcript demonstrating your use of person-centered theory to address Vanita's concern.
