Differentiating between Counseling Theory and Process. ERIC Digest.
Theory can be used to define the nature of the relationship between the counselor and the client, to conceptualize the nature of the presenting problem(s), and to define the resulting counseling goals or desired outcomes. From an integrative perspective the choice of therapeutic intervention is made by relating the intervention directly to the nature or character of the problem being addressed. Counseling interventions tend to fall into four broad categories: affective, cognitive, behavioral, and systemic. (ABL)
