Creating Your Own Theoretical Orientation

As a counselor, how do you develop a theoretical orientation? Do you just wake up one morning and voila, you have your theoretical orientation?

Chances are your orientation will not magically come to you in a dream or vision. In fact, developing a theoretical orientation is often a process that begins when you take your first counseling theories course and continues throughout your master’s program and field experience. As you progress through your studies, you will likely find that you are continually developing a clearer picture of your theoretical orientation. Over the years following your master’s degree, your orientation will begin to solidify as you work with your clients and alongside other counselors. In truth, the process probably never ends, because you will always learn about new theories, work with new clients, and develop a deeper understanding of yourself.

In this Discussion, you hear the personal stories of how two distinguished Walden Faculty members, Dr. Marszalek and Dr. Buckley, developed their own theoretical orientations. Then, reflect upon the various factors that can influence the development of a counselor’s theoretical orientation. What factors might be influencing your own development process?

Post by Day 3 your initial reaction upon reading your Instructor’s post. Then, explain what resonated with you the most and why. Finally, explain where you are in the process of developing your theoretical orientation. Be specific by describing the factors that are currently influencing your development process.

Respond by Day 5 to at least two of your colleagues using one or more of the following approaches:

  • Find a colleague who you could assist in the process. Offer a suggestion to help you colleague finalize the key elements of his or her theoretical orientation.
  • Request support from a colleague on how to develop your theoretical orientation.
