Unit 4 Discussion Case Study

Unit 4 Discussion Case Study

Stages of Change Theory

This study provides the discussion topic for the matching discussion in this unit. You will post your responses in the discussion activity.

Note: This study activity contains the second discussion topic for your group discussions this week.

In Chapter 8 of the Cormier text and Chapter 13 of the Pomerantz text, it is argued that psychotherapy is much more successful if the client is ready for change.

Alice is unsure what she wants. She wants both to stay with her boyfriend and to leave him permanently because of the pattern of abuse. She was in therapy before but left because she felt that her therapist was pressuring her to leave her boyfriend. She has come to therapy again for help with this situation.
