We do this because restraining someone against his or her will could not be considered a universal law.” (ANA). In relation, we now us informed consents to allow patients autonomy or the right to make their own decisions, instead of doing it for them because it’s their own will to decide what health care treatment they want and don’t want.

Ms. Malcom should proceed by emotionally separating herself from her parents as a physical separation may cause more undue stress on her.

Sympathy is when a provider shows emotional connection to what the patient is saying. Sympathy is not a recommended form of acknowledgement because it can make the patient feel worse or as if they are being pitied. Servellen also touched upon the importance of active listening.

He also included the steps that should be taken in order to be empathetic towards a patient which include: identification, incorporation, reverberation and detachment.
Rothman (2013) states that this model “care is envisioned as a sincere concern for the well-being of another: a concern which then creates a context for action on the part of the person who cares toward to person who is the object of care” (p.22). This theory can be applied to this case study because Dot cared about the well-being of Harry and did not like the way that he was being treated by his mother. Her approach to documenting the encounter was inappropriate, but she wanted Harry to be in an environment where he did not have to experience his mother degrading him in such a way. Due to Harry’s behavioral problems and his living conditions Dot was focused on the environment that he was living in which in turn may have contributed to his behavioral problems along with his living conditions that he was experiencing. Because Dot cared about Harry’s well-being she let her values and opinions get involved which led to her speaking negatively about Harry’s mother.
Possible consequences are that the counselor could harm the client by not providing the professional services needed as general counselor in a small community. Option 2 and Consequence: The counselor could accept to seek the client which is a close friend of the counselor, and provide the professional services that the counselor is trained to provide, including explaining the client the benefits of the services, limitations, consent, confidentiality, and responsibilities. The consequence could be if the client still sees the counselor as a friend and not as a professional counselor and they could eventually stop coming for sessions and affect the friendship in the long run. Option 3 and Consequence: The counselor could explain to the client (which is the counselor’s friend) the reason why the counselor could not be beneficial for the client; and that the client should seek counseling with a person that the client doesn’t have a friendship with. The counselor needs to avoid doing harm to the client and promote wellbeing for the client.

If placed in a similar situation during another counseling session, I would stop the session and express how this does not assist with developing a safe and positive client-counselor working alliance. I would also encourage that they seek out supervision and/or consultation about what is means to be culturally competent counselor and to assess their understanding of microagressions. I can also say that I would be frustrated by the experience, but I would be less likely to hold onto that experience as a representation of who I am as a person versus who they are as a professional
If anything is mentioned about the abuser getting help they will deflect it by saying that they are fine, and they can stop using these products on their own when they want. It is also hard for abusers to trust the people that are trying to help them because they feel attacked in a way. At this point the abuser feels like the whole world is against him or
We should take responsibilities for our actions, stop blaming parents for what they did or did not. Being able to identify ourselves as a separate person and not a part of mother/father being, like an arm or leg. It is uneasy, but it would definitely improve
