Watch Robert Wubbolding expertly demonstrate Reality Therapy in an actual therapy session in this three-part video.
Wubbolding believes that as human beings we have much more control over our lives than we think, and that the challenge is to learn how to be more responsible in our drives for belonging, power, enjoyment, freedom and survival. In this video, Wubbolding works with a graduate student who lacks focus in his efforts to complete his master’s thesis and make pivotal life decisions. This challenging client is initially difficult to pin down, speaking in tangents and diverting Wubbolding’s questions throughout the session. However, Wubbolding is able to reel him in during key moments, leading the client to realize that it is his motivation, not external factors that prevent him from moving forward with his thesis and other life decisions. Jon Carlson and Diane Kjos introduce Wubbolding and facilitate a discussion on the approach.
By watching this counselling video, you'll be able to:
- Understand the major components of Reality Therapy including interventions that help clients gain more responsibility and control in their lives.
- Describe Wubbolding’s therapeutic approach and the kinds of questions he asks his clients that focus on their wants, needs, motivations and plans.
- Integrate a Reality Therapy approach into your own therapeutic work with clients.
