Lets review two big theories • Erickson, Tomlin and Swain • Role modeling Theory. • Uses “clients view” of the world to gain understanding of the world from their perspective • Assumes all people want to interact with others and also want to carry out their selected roles in society • Plan interventions that meet the clients needs to aid growth and healing • People are alike: holism

    4. Abraham MaslowHumanistic theory • Based on a hierarchy of needs • Some needs more important than others • These needs drive human behavior • Lower needs must be met before a person can satisfy greater ones • Explains drive, energy, direction and goals of human life
