What are the similarities and differences between person centred counseling and the gestalt theory of counseling?
Answer To my knowledge, the main similarity between person centered and gestalt therapy are that both are "experiential" approaches to counseling, meaning that t…he counseling process goals are rooted in the experience of the client and the therapist learning. Also both are focused on the "here and now" or present problems/issues, as opposed to something like psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy which tends to focus on past problems or events. In that same vein, this similarity yields differences from the start: In person centered therapy, the person is the focal point of the sessions, with the therapist taking a "back seat" to learn about the person, and watch as the person moves toward self-actualization. The person in therapy will be provided with a very supportive environment from the therapist, whose job it is to provide unconditional positive regard, as well as a non-judgmental feedback. The therapist does not make suggestions for the person, the person decides what goal(s) they would like to work on, while the therapist provides support and understanding (it has a "hands off" approach). Gestalt therapy differs in that, the therapist takes a much more active role. In this mode of therapy, the client and the therapist work together as a team to learn about the client. The approach is based on the assumption that a person must assume responsibility for their behavior/actions. The therapist here may utilize various techniques to aid the client in realizing how their actions or behaviors have impacted any problems that they have. This is more of a confrontational approach, but therapists of this mode must take care not to do more harm than good in their "confrontations" with their clients, or risk losing their client at a minimum.

These two theories differ more than they are similar to each other. The James-Lange theory argues that we experience the arousal from the event or situation first, and …then we interpret the arousal and experience the emotion. Without the arousal there is no emotion experienced. The Lazarus theory argues that we must have a cognitive thought before any arousal or emotion is experienced. Without the thought there is no emotion experienced. These two theories are similar in the arousal that we experience before and during the emotion.
similarities: 1. Both made many similar observations 2. Both observed a wide diversity of life forms that are adopted to their environment 3. Both proposed that species …evolve -Traits are passed to offspring. -Driven by environment. -Both proposed evolution with gradual change.
There are not many similarities between psychoanalytic theory and behaviorist theory. Psychoanalytic theory is based on the unconscious and conscious thoughts of a perso…n where as Behaviorism is based on the behavior of an individual without taking into account any thoughts or cognitions of the individual. The only similarity that I see is that they are both theories to explain human behavior - one looking at thoughts and one completely ignoring thoughts.
i think that the activity theory has more independence than the disengagement theory as a person is more active than needing help (disengagement theory)
it is connected because pacific theory is all about submarine volcanoes and when you say submarine volcanoes it means that........ volcanoes under the sea that's wh…y volcanoes & pacific theory is related to each other...
Instinct theory claims that how people survive and survived is related to generics. Evolutionary perspective claims looks at how previous language, memory, physical charac…teristics, etc. have evolved over time. While evolutionary perspective deals with biology more, it could technically fall under instinct theory because of how they both look at human behavior.
The question is open ended and there can not be short answer to it. You can view the similarities and difference between the thoughts of Deming, Juran and Crosby at http://w…ww.qualitytimes.co.in/compare.htm The views and life of other quality gurus is availavle at http://qualitygurus.com
The difference between these theories is that the Equity theory basically states that you get from a relationship what you put in to it and the social exchange theory is about… getting everything you can from a relationship with out giving back.
They both propose that organisms are not immutable, but changes over time. However the mechanisms of the two theories are very different.
both hyphotesis and theory are scintific.
As we compare Frederick Herzberg's two factor theory and Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory, they both specify the criteria as to what motivates people. We would also …come to realise that Abraham Maslow's theory is has a wider approach where as Herzberg's theory considers work situations, his studies basically derive from within the work environment. With Herzberg's theory there is no specific order when we look at the factors that cause employees to be dissatisfied.

The question is unclear. It is not made clear between what these similarities and differences should exist.
