Reflection | SOCW 6060 – Social Work Theory and Clinical Practice | Walden University

  The Theoretical Evaluation Self-Test (TEST) was developed by Daniel Coleman. It is a quantitative instrument that measures a therapist’s theoretical orientation. It consists of 30 close-ended statements with a 7-point Likert scale, asking the extent of agreement about “psychotherapy, the human psyche, and the therapeutic process” (Coleman, 2008, p. 74). The seven theoretical orientations that are measured are psychodynamic, biological, family systems, ecosystems, cognitive, pragmatic, and humanistic. 

For this Discussion, you take the TEST to stimulate self-reflection. You will also take some time to reflect on all the different theories and models covered in this course. 

  • After taking the TEST, post your results.
  • Explain in 2–3 sentences the extent to which you were surprised or not surprised by the TEST results and explain the reasons why you were surprised or not surprised.
  • After looking back at the array of theories and models that were covered in this course, identify the top three theories or models that most appealed to you.
  • Explain in 3–4 sentences how your personal values, worldviews, life experiences, and/or your personality influenced your selection of the top three theories or models.
