The patients will trust the nurse when they know that they can be reliable. The nurse can gain clients trust by being caring, showing an interest in them, being honest and showing the client that they are listening to them. In nursing it is important to be empathetic. The nurse ensure that they are being empathic towards the client and not sympathetic. Empathy allows the nurse to relate to the client’s pain or distress.
They needs to keep difference by eliciting the client’s verbal expression of concerns, their reasons to change and should encourage their optimism regarding change. Counselors need to be polite and positive in knowing things rather than confronting it directly. The counselor needs to emphasis on supporting the client’s self – efficacy. They must give positive feedback to encourage client’s motivation to change. Counselor should not do any direct confrontation to their clients or else it will lead to denial tendency of the client.
When the therapist is able to show an empathetic understanding of what the client is experiencing, it helps the client have a better inner understanding as well. • Unconditional positive regard – Therapists must always maintain a positive and non-judgmental view of their clients. Rogers’ believed that conditional regard and support from others lead to some of the problems clients mostly experienced. When they felt accepted without conditions and the fear of rejection was no more there, clients could openly talk about their
Both the counsellor and client collaborate to find solutions. The counsellor does not place emphasis on the client’s problems but motivates them towards a preferred future. The counsellor focusses on the client’s strengths and resources to help them move forward ( Murdock, 2013 ). It is essential that the counsellor concedes that the client is in charge of their problem and of changes that have to transpire. The role of the counsellor is to enable these changes and direct the process towards a positive outcome ( Corey, 2014
Key issues, problems and areas of focus in Counselling • Counselling should be a voluntary process: Counselling as a process will be effective only when the clients are co-participants in the process rather than passive recipients of counsellor interventions. The counsellor should act as a facilitator and not force the client to take part in the process. Hence, the person deemed to be seeking help must be willing to engage. • Status of relationship counselling: Couples counselling has one of the lowest ratings in terms of customer satisfaction. A different set of skills is required to work with more than one client at the same time.
It is also the main method used in a psychoanalytic therapy. Free association allows patients to speak whatever that comes to their minds and not the idea of the analyst repeating itself. The client is stimulated to say whatever thought that comes to their mind, regardless of thoughts that are painful or sad. It could open up the unconscious and may take a peek into their fantasies. The therapist should identify and explain the meaning of the behaviour.
Instead, the client consciously and rationally decides for themselves what is wrong and what should be done about it. The therapist is more of a friend or counselor who listens and encourages on an equal level. One reason why Rogers (1951) rejected interpretation was that he believed that, although symptoms did arise from past experience, it was more useful for the client to focus on the present and future than on the past. Rather than just liberating clients from their past, as psychodynamic therapists aim to do, Rogerians hope to help their clients to achieve personal growth and eventually to self
The article is informative it provides different approaches to cognitive-behavioral therapy; a counselor responsibility is not to diagnosed but rather to explore the diagnosis as to what is trigging the client to behave in a certain manner. The article did not require statistical methods to prove that integration of scripture and prayer have a plethora of positive outcomes. The reading elaborates on techniques from previous readings from courses within the tutelage of counseling. There will be a time during counseling when then counselor may feel uncertain about the integration of prayer and scripture however like Siang-Yang (2007) stated that in Christian it is not mandatory or required to integrate both principles during a counseling session. A client may not require spiritual intervention because they are not being rebellious towards other people in cognitive behavior therapy the damage in many cases is being done by the individual to
Integrative approach to counselling is the process of combining different approaches to psychotherapy for the treatment of a client. The basic assumption of integrative approach is that there are no singular approaches that can guarantee the treatment of a client; thus different theories are required to ensure effective treatment. The major benefits of integrative approach are: firstly, its flexibility and focused treatment for the wholeness of an individual/client. Secondly, it is effective in treating children with autism and helping children and other clients who have difficulty in learning. It also helps in the treatment of depression, phobias and other negative behaviours.
Through being counselled and having variety of methods being thrown at me led me to approach my counsel in a careful, no judgemental manner as feeling like being on the other side was not helping me and making me rather uncomfortable being there. I came to decide to use the Humanistic, person centred approach of Carl Rodgers as it is a non judgemental, honest and empathic approach which makes the person being counselled feel comfortable and open to explore their feeling without going along with someone because they are seen as the "professional". After being counselled with these methods it made me not want to go back and work with that person as I felt they held a lot of power of me during a moment that was meant to be mine. The power between me and the counsellor being shifted to their side I think was because I was quieter and patty was much louder and vocal was intimidating so I went trough with following what she said and just
It is imperative for a therapist to be simply present during a client session instead of focusing on what theoretical approach to take or what interventions may work. Smiling and using verbal and nonverbal cues to let the client know that you are listening and are able to empathize with their struggles. Sometimes using humor with the appropriate client may assist with developing the therapeutic relationship. Skillfully using self disclosure in order to let the client know that you empathize with them can be
When counselling children, one of the ethical issues which we come across is about the Informed Consent. So initial phase in securing the privileges of the client is an informed consent report (Corey, Corey, & Callanan, 2011). Vesper and Brock (1991) stated: “The principle of informed consent was initially intended to assist doctors and specialists to disclose therapeutic procedures to patients and to caution them of any dangers or risks that could come about because of treatment. The purpose of this rule was to allow the patient to make a careful, learned decision in the matter of whether to experience the proposed treatment or system or not” (p. 50). Its base is directly embedded into the autonomy and right of self determination of a client
