This is for a discussion post. No set number of pages are required. It does not need to be long (about one page or less) but it needs to be very well written, scholarly, in a discussion tone, using APA.
It will involve reading material (see additional doc) and watching a two-hour video. I have included extra time for this.
A response to two of the other discussion posts will be required but I will send that as a separate assignment later.
You will need Vital Source Bookshelf App to read the ebook.

Discussion: Existential or Gestalt Counseling: Case Conceptualization
For this Discussion, you will write a case conceptualization as though you were an existential or Gestalt counselor. Be sure to incorporate the feedback from your Instructor on your previous conceptualizations into this week’s.
As you review this week’s Learning Resources and media file, note techniques and interventions, and consider the role of an existential or Gestalt counselor in planning treatment. Further, reflect on existential and Gestalt therapy with respect to developing your own theoretical orientation. In what ways do you find that these approaches may resonate with your own point of view?

oIdentify your chosen theory (i.e., existential or Gestalt) and explain at least two techniques and interventions from that theory.
By Day 3
