It is crucial for the helper to help clients in sharing and identify the key issue that need for change. Clients shared their problems and want to be listened and the helper has to respond with understanding. 1A: Story According to Corey (2006), in the first stage, the helper has to establish rapport and a working relationship to reduce clients stress and anxiety. The helper is encourage clients to share their stories also to find out more about clients such as their strengths, weaknesses, family, work and so
Roles that exist within someone’s own personal life can fall into the category of familial roles. A clinical psychologist can also be someone’s parent and more often than not, someone’s child. Although it is often said that professionalism requires that you separate personal from professional, this dichotomy is often not easily achieved and ethical conflicts can often arise. However, acknowledging that the realm of personal roles, by necessity, encompasses a high degree of individual differences and may not be easily generalized, we will not focus too much on the possible conflicts arising from

This therapist pictures the counseling process to take efforts from both counselor and client. As this therapist is person-centered it is important to let the clients lead the session and direct the therapeutic efforts toward areas that they deem appropriate and necessary. This process is entirely collaborative as the counselor also takes steps to keep clients focused on their expressed and agreed upon treatment goals, to make changes to the treatment plan, or to aid in guiding the sessions as clients may not be able to lead sessions depending upon many factors, such as acuity of symptoms. Throughout this process it is important to look at diversity dimensions and work to address social justice and advocacy factors in play within a client’s experience. This author believes the best use of counselor’s efforts is to brainstorm with the client of ways to be involved on both micro and macro levels that work to help the client.
Besides that, member may bring up issues that might relate to what others have to say that sometimes it does not bring courage to them to say it out. Firstly, the limitation of group therapy is free association and transference. In free association, group members are allow to say what comes to their mind without censorship but in other words, although they are encourage to speak their mind, still some patient might not be able to take the pain of expressing those painful thoughts during free association. Another limitation is that transference can cause problem in a way that if member refused to disclose information and insist to stay mum, that might cause them to have trust issue towards the therapist or the group members (American Psychoanalytic Association,
(book 4) When a client is able to authentically connect themselves with their real self, the awareness is greater and so is the ability to find parts of their self that have been ignored before. It is not the duty of an existential therapist to find meaning of their client’s life but to facilitate the therapy sessions that enables their client to find and create purposes and goals in their lives so that it will be meaningful and worthwhile. (journal 10) According to the existential theory, every individual are an architect of their lives and they have the potential to recognize their strengths. (book4) They are also responsible to design their life journey. Rather than blaming themselves as a victim of circumstances, an individual has to accept that they are what they choose to be.
Firstly, summarising helps the counsellor to consolidate what the client says in a meaningful way which provides clarity to the client about what had happened since the beginning of the session. Secondly, it is to clarify with the client on whether what the counsellor had summarised is correct. This is important as there could be misinterpretations during the summarisation since it was from the counsellor’s point of reference and thirdly, it helps to redirect the client into setting and choosing what goals does she want to work on since the client could go on and on with expanding the story and lose sight with the original purpose in mind. 4th stage: Restory The purpose of restorying is to help the client come out with alternatives and expand on the possibilities of what could she had done things differently. In the session, the client came out with different possibilities while she was expanding on her story and thus the counsellor could focus more on the action and implementation of her ideas.
This semester my psych rotation is split between the YWCA and Grandview Medical Center. I am starting at the YWCA, which is a shelter for women who have suffered from domestic violence and have nowhere else to go. This experience has already proven to be different than a typical nursing clinical that I have already experienced. This clinical rotation will make us rely on the basic foundations of nursing, such as therapeutic communication, whole-person care, maintaining patient safety, etc. This psych rotation will be a difficult one, however, I think it will also be very rewarding and I will learn concepts that I will be able to take with me throughout my nursing journey.
The social worker could help the couple weigh pros and cons, in attempt to promote self-determination, another component of the NASW Code of Ethics (n.d.). Using MI, the social worker would continue with a series of open-ended questions, reflections and summarizations to explore the client’s ambivalence (Phillips et al., 2012). The overall goal of the social worker would be to assert equal curiosity about both Mika and Joe. Diller (2007) suggests the session should end with a discussion regarding a treatment plan. As the relationship builds, EFT (in conjunction with MI) could be a good intervention, since infertility manifests as a de facto “attachment injury” (Wiebe & Johnson, 2016, p.
Taking the data identified, looking at patterns and gaps, developing the rationale for why the patterns and gaps exist and how to address each of them, followed up by executing solutions by weighing past experiences, current literature and evidenced based practice, and nursing standards of practice supported the achievements of this group. Teams are more likely to trust a leader that is knowledgeable about all of the team’s roles, not needing to be an expert, but can clearly articulate a deep understanding of what their needs and tasks entail. Creating an atmosphere of trust makes it easier to keep the team focused
