Theory Integration Each theory you examine in this course has its own framework
Theory Integration Each theory you examine in this course has its own framework for addressing client needs and its own set of theory-based interventions. As with any purely theoretical basis, implementation in real life may require adjustments. Select one of the theories demonstrated in the videos this week (either humanistic/experiential or EFT), and consider the challenges you may face when integrating this theory with your own theoretical orientation. Then, think about how you might mitigate these challenges.
With these thoughts in mind: Post by Day 4 a brief description of one challenge you may encounter if you attempted to integrate the theory you selected with your main theoretical orientation in your future practice. Then, explain how you might mitigate this challenge. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
