Can counseling work without delving into patient's childhood in some situations?
Yes, definitely! When a focus on psychoanlysis is not required, there are a good number of basic counseling skills and methods to use that help the client to focus on dealing with the present in a responsible way. I'm thinking of cases where the basic problem is the client feels stuck and overwhelmed in or with life. Encouraging and helping the client to think out loud can alone help such cases to take some initial steps forward, and keep doing this week after week until enough relief is experienced. This is just a brief example.
Yes, counseling can work in many situations without delving into a client's childhood. When we hear the words "counseling" or "therapy" an image of a comfy couch with extensive psychoanalysis comes to mind for many. In current times, this type of therapy is rare.
Many counseling techniques utilized by mental health practitioners now are goal-oriented and structured. If delving into the client's childhood will not have a positive impact on the client's current ability to develop more effective adaptive strategies and cope with daily stressors successfully, it is not necessary.
I do want to note that if a client is seeking counseling yet is very resistant and anxious to discussing their childhood, it is unfortunately likely that something in the client's childhood needs to be resolved in order for the client to deal with the present issue effectively.
Can counseling be effective without talking about your childhood? Sure, but it is also possible for many people that avoiding their childhood, if this is where the root of the problem lies, could set up the person for continued failed counseling attempts.
Yes, cognitive behavioural therapy is one form of counselling that focuses on practical ways of dealing with the here and now rather than going into one's childhood.
