Analysis of Self, Reality Therapy, Existentialism, theoretical Conceptualization


The following analysis of self takes a look at a theoretical conceptualization of the author through the lens of a reality therapy and existential theoretical orientation. Information used within this conceptualization include the authors background information in domains related to relationships, academics, career, work, mental health, chemical health, culture, coping skills, strengths, resilience, and hobbies. Additionally, the assessments of Strengths Quest, Holland Codes, and the Adverse Childhood Questionnaire along with interviews are used to conceptualize the author. Upon completion of the conceptualization a look at the impact this conceptualization as on the author in terms of their professional identity and future plans for development are discussed.
