While this claim has its truths, Kya Clark’s trauma isn’t what completely shaped her. Looking more positively, her trauma with abandonment was an extremely important part of the development of her character, but because of this trauma was how she became a part of the marsh. Therefore, this claim is a factor in Kya Clark's conflicts, but ultimately, the marsh is the source of the conflict and peace in her
Kya's family is dysfunctional and suffers from poverty, neglect, and abuse, which is evident through her mother's depression and frequent departures (Owens 10). As a result of her abandonment, Kya struggles to trust others and becomes self-sufficient, turning to the marshland for support and solace. Her relationship with people who are close to her, such as Jumpin' and Mabel, is built on mutual respect, kindness, and understanding (Owens 56). In contrast, Kya's relationships with people who are against her, such as Chase Andrews, are marked by power imbalances and manipulation (Owens 166). Despite her difficult circumstances, Kya remains resilient and resourceful, ultimately forging her own path and finding her place in the
The client could not understand; yet he was feeling uncertain and this interpretation pinpoint the reason why by connecting his past to his future. 4. What do you think was effective about the therapist’s approach in this session? The session was more open and free formed.
One is to help the client notice the futility of previous controlling attempts (e.g., emotional avoidance). A second goal is to generate therapeutic contexts where willing to experience her struggles without the attempts of suppressing, distracting, or getting rid of them. The paradoxical effect of controlling strategies is discussed along with a metaphor, and the willingness to contact with her private events as an alternative are briefly introduced. In addition, session 8 and 9 are designed to help her discriminate contexts where controlling strategies work and where they do not work. Session 9 focuses on the discriminating training.

For the last six years, I have been working in the substance abuse industry in both inpatient and outpatient settings. It would be fair to say that most people that are in need of substance abuse treatment have a co-occurring disorder such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and anxiety. These people are diagnosed by a psychiatrist or medical doctor and are typically given medication to help the patient. However, the problem can be that if a person sees a psychiatrist and is not honest about their substance abuse history the mental diagnosis can be deceiving.
In novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, by Ken Kesey, a leader organizes a group of mental patients and rebels against the figurehead of the broken institutional system of the mental hospital. McMurphy pushes The institutions rules of order, bringing out the evil in the situation. Bromden, due to his bias narration, misconstrues Nurse Ratched as the antagonist where, in truth, she falsifies this by trying to maintain order and by ultimately seeking the best for her patients. Kesey chooses Bromden as the narrator, by doing this, he introduces an element of skepticism for the audience as Brombden opposes the institution.
Introduction Throughout the treatment process, it is vitally important that the therapist work with the client on the reassessment of treatment goals. There are numerous reasons for reassessment to occur; the chief reason is that client’s needs continuously change. The goal, objective, situation, all could have changed drastically since the start. For instance, if the client was hospitalized within the year, reassessment to examine what the effect that situation caused and the clients functioning, is needed. There may be new problems, new goals, or new interventions needed.
I will admit that my biggest fear in entering this profession is hurting someone unintentionally by lacking the knowledge and tools necessary to assist them in the struggles that bought them into counseling. Though I understand that informed consent is critical in allowing the client to voluntarily enter into treatment, I also am fully aware that location, convenience and cost drive clients to seek help from counselors who may not be capable of providing services. This chapter indeed reaffirmed with me that I have only just begun the journey to what I have been called to
The journal provides her with a way to write down her feelings and process them with this counselor when she returns to school. When sharing these experiences, Maliya is very energetic and enthusiastic which suggests to me that her self-confidence has improved. Every session, I continue to bring up her coping skills and ask whether she has felt the need to use the different calming strategies we have talk about. Maliya consistently reports positive things, saying she has used them and they are helpful. This demonstrates to me that Maliya has begun to make better decisions and not use her anger to solve problems at school and at
Herman’s Intervention Model of Recovery Therapeutic healing according to Herman, 1997, is the most important thing a therapist brings into the relationship with a client like Kathy, who has experienced any form of psychological trauma, is the formation of a healing relationship. The client’s traumatic event has left him/her experiencing a disconnection from self, others, and feelings of disempowerment. Therefore, the primary principle for the therapist is to act as a guide or an ally in reestablishing empowerment in the client toward their recovery. Throughout the healing relationship the client develops autonomy/self-determination, a rebirth of power and control, and a new sense of self (Herman, 1997).
DISCUSSION From the beginning, the therapist had to deal with own doubts and anxiety. The therapist had heard a lot about the psychodynamic psychotherapy but this was the first time he conduct the sessions by himself. Unlike pharmacotherapy, there is no standard clinical practice guideline or recommendation for the therapist to refer to or follow. The therapist was worried that he was unable to conduct the therapy effectively and his patient would not benefit from the therapy.
Therapists must access their own internal process such as their feelings, attitudes and moods. Therapists’, who are not receptive to the awareness of their flow of thoughts and feelings, will not be able to help clients be aware of theirs (Kahn, 1997, p. 40). Though congruence does not mean that therapists have to share personal issues with clients, a therapist must not conceal their inner process from the client, and not be defensive but transparent (Kahn, 1997, p. 41). By being open sometimes a therapist learns more not only about their client but about themselves
