  • Compare your chosen theory to another counseling theory you learned about in this course.
  • Describe how this theory is closely related to your chosen theory. How does it differ?
  • Describe how you would apply your chosen theory to address a mental health issue.
  • What might be the advantages and limitations of your theory as you apply the theory to the mental health issue you have chosen?
