In Helping Skills in Practice: A Three-Stage Model, Dr. Clara E. Hill demonstrates her three-stage model of helping clients.
This three-stage approach involves exploration, insight, and action.
The exploration stage is based on client-centered theory, and aims to help clients explore their thoughts and feelings.
The insight stage, which is based on psychodynamic theory, involves helping clients understand the reasons for their thoughts and feelings.
The action stage, based on behavioral theory, centers on helping clients make desired changes in their lives. This model emphasizes a number of themes, including empathy, collaboration with the client throughout therapy, cultural considerations, and a focus on what the individual client needs.
In this DVD, Dr. Hill demonstrates each stage of the model with a woman who has concerns about eating and weight.
