If you have seen the Maslow Interview and watched the documentary on his place in the culture, you know that Maslow (like all self-actualizers)is not all sweetness and happiness. There are complexities to him that we don’t often perceive when we reduce his ideas to a simple triangle-shaped hierarchy of needs. His ideas are much more than that.
Maslow, who was Jewish, asked:
“Which of the Nazis at Auschwitz or Dachau were healthy? Those with stricken conscience or those with a nice, clear, happy conscience?… If you tell me you have a personality problem I am not certain until I know you better whether to say “Good!” or “I’m sorry.” It depends on the reasons. And these, it seems, may be bad reasons, or they may be good reasons.”
Maslow, A. H. (1962). Toward a psychology of being. Princeton NJ: Van Nostrand
Discuss your reaction to this powerful quote. What does it mean for humanistic, growth and positive psychology. Can we avoid equating ‘feeling good’ with ‘growing and being healthy’; how do we know what healthy really means? Use the resources this week, and from previous weeks, to help answer this question.

For this discussion, please watch the following video by Susan Johnson. This is

For this discussion, please watch the following video by Susan Johnson. This is the same video utilized in Module 5 and 6. Please answer the following questions – make sure to describe in detail and refer to your readings:
How did the therapist elicit the meaning of the problem for the client?
How did the therapist reflect back on what the problem means to the client?
How did the therapist reframe or provide a new interpretation of the problem for the client?
Do you agree or not agree with the therapist’s interpretation of the client’s problem? Identify an alternative interpretation that could apply to this client’s experience. Overall, what are your thoughts and impressions of the process that you saw in the video.
please respond to Elijah:
How Dr. Johnson elicited the meaning of the problem by asking useful questions that allowed the clients to expand further on their feelings and the problems they are facing. This essentially helped Scott in particular because Scott was able to reveal his trauma as a child that still prevented him from expressing his emotions. Dr. Johnson’s having a better understanding of Scott’s behavior, thoughts, and feelings towards not being vulnerable enough to express his emotions allowed Dr. Johnson to dig deeper to resolve what was the matter. From Dr. Johnson’s reflecting on the entire problem and seeing where the couple is struggling from emotionally, it will help Dr. Johnson become clearer on what she will need to ask to help the couple become more open and expand on their feelings. How the therapist provided a new interpretation for the clients was by listening to the clients’ story and connecting the dots, making the couple look at their issue from a new useful perspective. The therapist emphasized to the man the fact that his wife was sitting there feeling alone and frustrated because she actually wanted to be with him, and it was just the anger that got in the way. Scott then began realizing what needed to change and why expressing his softer side was essential to his wife because that’s all he had. My overall thought about the process was that it was very interesting, because it made me realize that with age comes understanding more of yourself, deeper than what you expected, because early trauma still follows. It’s a process that made me believe that the more understanding you become of a client, the more information that will be provided.
Please respond to Mereisha:
Using focused techniques to concentrate on the meaning, eliciting means listening to and extracting client stories (Ivey et al. 2018). The therapist helps the client to investigate the significance of their difficulties throughout the course of the session by asking and making a range of suggestions. The therapist begins to realize that Scott’s violent outburst has a deeper significance after probing beneath the surface of his rage. The therapist might have a deeper understanding of the issues by paying close attention while listening to the patient. Asking about the client’s experiences in particular circumstances is a frequent method the therapist employs to generate meaning. This appears to frequently result in the client investigating the effects and significance of these experiences in their lives. Eliciting and reflecting are two effective approaches that aid in creating a clear counseling relationship that makes clients feel more at ease and to participate wholeheartedly. The client can come up with a better strategy to get over these challenges and move closer to their treatment objectives by having a deeper knowledge of the meaning and source of their issues. In order for the couple to reflect on specific events and feelings they have had with one another, Dr. Johnson often poses questions that have the couple think and express freely while they respond. The couple can develop and gain insight from the challenging experiences they have had if they consider the full issue rather than just specific aspects of it. I concur with the therapist’s analysis of the client’s issue. She was successful in getting the husband to express his actual feelings and anxieties. She was able to reveal one layer of the issue in the first session, but I think he is still hesitant and will need further treatment to be able to uphold being able to express his true feelings. When analyzing the video from the beginning to end the therapist was also able to give the clients the correct terms regarding their unspoken feelings. The therapist did an exceptional job of getting to the bottom of the couple’s situation and connecting crucial details to convey the complete and overall problem. She effectively helped her clients recognize that their marriage was worth saving by utilizing all of her skills.
