For this discussion, consider the following:
Oliver is a 16-year-old male who was referred to counseling by his mother, who is concerned he may have an eating disorder. Oliver recently joined the wrestling team and, according to his mother, is obsessed with his weight. She states that Oliver has always struggled with his weight as a child and was frequently teased in elementary school for being overweight. Now that he has hit high school, he seems obsessed with his weight. He was encouraged by his dad to join the wrestling team so that he can toughen up and learn how to take care of himself. His dad constantly tells him to do whatever it takes to win the wrestling matches so the other kids start to respect him. Oliver reports that in order to keep his spot on the team, he needs to lose eight pounds by the next match or he will not be able to compete and risks disappointing his dad. Oliver’s mom reports that he has lost 20 pounds in the last two months. She also reports that Oliver eats because she makes him, but over the past couple of months, she has noticed that he excuses himself to the restroom after they eat. Last week, she followed him and heard him vomiting.
This week’s readings have provided multiple tools for interventions, including the specific theories of psychoanalytic and person-centered counseling. Based on the above situation:
Provide a diagnosis for Oliver, including the diagnostic criteria, and the matching circumstances from the scenario about Oliver that demonstrate the criteria.
Identify the theory (psychoanalytic or person-centered theory) you would apply while working with Oliver. Explain why the theory is the most appropriate and substantiate your explanation with research from your book or a peer-reviewed article.
Discuss at least two techniques within this theory you would apply while working with Oliver. Provide evidence-based specific examples on what these techniques would look like.
