The Attachment Theory, for example, claims, "humans have the propensity to establish strong emotional bonds with others, and when individuals have some loss or emotional distress, they act out as a result of their loneliness and isolation". The emotional bond that connects the children and their caregiver are critical to the advancement of an internal working model. In Wuornos' case, granted her parents' abandonment and her grandparent’s sexual and physical abuse, she was incapable of forming a solid foundation of trust. It becomes more apparent following her disclosure of developing a sexual relationship with her older brother at a young
Family therapy is helpful to families that have trouble, problems, or issues within the system, which helps with families members improve communication and resolved conflicts. I believe that if a therapist was supposed to come and help my family with whatever problem there is, it will be successful. In the book, it states that relatively recent research related to common factors that cut across approaches focuses on how effective therapists bring "successful" models to life( blow et al 2007 pg341). I feel as though in most cases that is true. The therapist is most effective when among other behaviors they are able to build an alliance and engage with clients, great sense of hope, which I feel as that every individual or family needs, and the expectation of positive outcome.
The client and her family have all recently entered into a time in which their family is in perpetual crisis. Perception plays a great role in the strengths based model. Changing the perception brings to the light that the client and her children continued to exist under stress and have strengths that have helped them survive together so far. The strengths-based social work approach is appropriate for the client in that she has been extremely depressed, frustrated and rarely speaking to anyone outside of her children, yet she has had the ability to maintain her family and health (Kaplan and Girard, 1994). Assessing the client’s strengths can potentially alleviate or redirect negative outlooks on the client’s current situation.
Participating in the leadership self-assessments shown I am transformational and servant leader. In this assessment has given me an opportunity to identify my strengths and weaknesses. The assessments have been an eye-opening experience which have led me to develop a deeper understanding of my actions, motives, and values; and how contribute to successful outcomes or negative consequences. Learning about myself through these self-assessments has been an investment in the future of both my personal and professional life. Meanwhile, I am particularly good at encouraging my team and helping.
The way Mrs. Perez employed according to her explanation was excellent and her ideas justified the importance of such points in any counseling session. In my assessment concerning the professionalism of Mrs. Perez, she is a character with a gift in counseling that makes her appropriate for a counseling job particularly the one that deals with women. Her counseling changes live and she has been able to assist many women to change for the better. From my experience with her, I feel like this is the best career for me and I have to pursue it by any means. The method through which she approaches things is the best and can be of significant help to many women with similar problems.
Building relationships that can meaningful and respectful in offender’s life can have a positive role. I would like to attend more of these workshops because I learned so much and I enjoyed the interactions I had with the members. I think this is a great way to help offenders as a community. We have a choice and it amazes me to see all these individuals behind these workshops who take so much time and effort to volunteer for bringing change and creating meaningful relationships. I think we all humans need to learn to accept one another to whoever we are and not hurt each other and get immune and desensitized to violence.
He knew his mother wasn’t perfect and it was difficult for her to get past her addictions. He also noticed that his mother had had a difficult life and was giving her the opportunity to become better. Arlene have the courage to admit of past mistakes including allowing herself to become a victim of domestic violence and alcohol abuse. However, she had the courage to admit what she was doing wrong she was ready to take the recovery Road and learn from her past mistakes. Individuals learn and grow from their mistakes to become a better person.
Time management is important as it helps one to reach his/her goals on time. Gallozzi (2009) goes on to say time management help one to achieve balance in life and avoid meltdowns. It also reduces stress and make one feel more confident in the ability to get things done. The other that is important in personal development is reflective learning. Boud, D Keogh and Walker 1985 page 43), “reflection is an important human activity in which people recapture their experience, think about it, mull over and evaluate it.
Although I was nervous in the first session, I am able to help my client in reaching her goals and expectations. I found that I enjoy the simple framework of Egan's model. I am happy that I was able to help the client in resolution of her issue. I have noticed I utilized a range of counselling skills and I could improve better with more practices and experience. I must also work on my facial expression, voice of tone, conversation flow, and counselling's environment in order to carry out an effective counselling
Following the death of a child, many parents become preoccupied with their own grief which affects their interactions with surviving children (Rossetto, 2015). Terry and Antonio are so caught up in their own grief that they are not paying proper attention to their other three children. The communication in this household is masked because they learned to change the subject whenever Sam’s name comes up. The children as well as the parents did not get the proper amount of time to grieve their loss if they are not allowed to talk about it. Open communication is important for children following the death of a sibling and siblings who were provided family support exhibited less problematic behaviors (Rossetto, 2015).
But that in itself shows that their deaths control her actions and her feelings. The loss of those she wished to protect are what caused Najmah to avoid her triggers. Her rejection of those who could possibly help her heal from her PTSD shows the effects of pain she experienced. Losing her mother and baby brother not only left her alone, but it also is what kept her alone for much of her emotional journey. (CS) The extent to which Najmah loved her family is revealed in her reactions to anything that concerns them; by avoiding her triggers to protect herself, it demonstrates how immense the effect of losing them
However, due to organizational constraints, the staff of the PATHway program is limited in their ability to fully address the patient’s co-occurring conditions. Moreover, the patient reported that the father of her twins has been physically and verbally abusive in the past. Given this information, safety is a chief concern for this patient, and being responsive to the safety needs of the patient is a fundamental consideration of treatment. With the consideration of intimate partner violence within the patient’s relationship, there is also the possible that the patient may be experiencing some trauma-related mental health concerns. But, again due to structural limitations, the program is only able to offer the patient resources and recommendations for additional treatment to meet other mental health
