Supervisors are ultimately responsible for the ethical and legal actions that result from trainees. Clinical Supervisors face several potential ethical issues that arise in the process of training and evaluating future mental health professionals. As a supervisor, I will aspire to promote student personal growth and development so they could serve as ethical independent professionals in the future. By targeting the role of a gatekeeper, I will try to avoid the ethical issues that arise in multiple relationships. Conflicting relationships with trainees provide core issues in the differential of power and status that exist in the therapeutic relationship.
The steps include finding the members strength, constructing personal model of resilience, applying personal model of resilience, and practicing personal model of resilience (Padesky & Mooney, 2012). Cognitive therapy will address the members distorted perception of herself influenced by her environmental, family, and social factors. The goal is to change her feelings and actions so that she can achieve her treatment goals and learn how to resolve issues and concerns. The member has the capability of resiliency. The first step in strength based cognitive therapy is identifying her strengths as a means to become resilient, member can begin to change the way she thinks about who she is and gain confidence in her ability to overcome her challenges.
Duffy and Chenail (2008) stated when using a research approach in counseling, the counselor needs to make sure they understand the value and the purpose of the research study. The research needs to be appropriate to the client needs. Therefore, the counselor should be aware of the role and the responsibilities when using research for their client that they might not be any biases or cultural sensitive towards the client, if the counselor does not feel comfortable using the research the counselor can also reference “The Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association”. Sherpis and Daniels (2017) specified when a counselor is conducting a research study or using a research they should consider the dignity and welfare of the client. The counselor needs to make sure to respect clients at all times.
The first one is the fact that people cannot be think as separate from their relationships. Since relationships are one of the core factors in our life, it would be inevitable to be effected by them in different ways. The way we chose to deal with these relationships may be maladaptive and we need to learn a better way of dealing. PIT enables the therapist and patient to work on the present feelings and thoughts, which may arise in current therapeutic relationship. Even if these feelings and thoughts appears in the therapy sessions, they are also patterns of thinking and feeling in real life settings.
The right of informed consent is an ethical and legal requirement when working with clients. Informed consent is based on a client’s right to self-determination, along with being able to make autonomous decisions pertaining to treatment. The process of informed consent is viewed as legal requirement that is an important part of the therapeutic process. “It also establishes a foundation for creating a working alliance and a collaboration partnership between the client and therapist” (Corey, G. 2017, p.41). The importance of informed consent is seen as it provides the general goals of counseling, the responsalbities of the counselor towards the client.
However, since the senses are susceptible to personal interpretation, they are therefore potentially unreliable sources of data. If one is able of rationally thinking through the information that they perceive, then they are more likely to make accurate assumptions. However, if one is highly emotive, they may not be able to separate the emotion from the data they perceive,
Because the underlying reason of learning disabilities is related to genetics or with the brain, therefore, trying to challenge the thought of a client with this disability would be inappropriate. Furthermore, CBT emphasizes on assertiveness, independence, verbal ability, rationality, cognition and behavioural change of an individual and this might limit its usage on certain cultures which has different values and core beliefs (Corey, 2005). This can be a challenging task for therapist unless the therapist has dealt with a client of a same culture and has already have some understanding of the culture background and learned to be sensitive to their struggles. Besides that, people have different coping mechanism such as they cope either using emotions or cognitive. For client who uses emotional-focused coping mechanism, they would feel that CBT is not suitable for them as they are always being talked out of their emotions and are being forced to deal with problems in a more structured problem-focused way.
Margaret Mead and Rhonda Metraux discuss the varying effects of discipline in “Discipline- To What End?”, specifically when they state that, “There are… forms of discipline that may be self-defeating.” I understand this quote to mean discipline can lead to the opposite of the desired effect when improperly used. This can result from both over disciplining and using the wrong kind of regulation for a specific behavior. The possible outcomes from the wrong kind of discipline may lead to the child having problems with decision making and development of character, which may severely stunt his or her ability to function in the future. I agree that discipline can be psychologically contradictory to the intended goal as a result of either inappropriate
Multicultural competence can be an ethical issue for a counselor when working with clients. It can be an ethical issue when individuals have different culture believes then others. A counselor can have ethical issues when working with a client that does not understand their culture believes. Counselors needs to be aware of their client culture believes before they start working with them. According to Bridge, Massie, and Mills “Social workers must be able to apply the principals of cultural competence to all levels of practice.
Health Professionals may find it challenging to adapt all these principles set by different foundations e.g. The Health Foundation, without managerial and organisational support. The Trusts must have a learning culture where the staff can build on their interpersonal and communication skills with the patients as well as the staff in order to provide effective person-centred care. The trust’s culture must also pay great importance to appropriate safeguarding policies in order avoid any failings in
OT’s need to be flexible and knowledge about psychosocial issues so they can create a good client- therapist relationship. Psychosocial issues can be specific to a diagnosis of disability. It is important for the OT to be mindful of these for a client-centered approach to therapy. Many factors need to be taken into consideration when OT’s assess client’s with disabilities. The OT needs to address the challenges that a client may have that made add to psychosocial issues such as cultural and social factors.
Authors Pompeo and Levitt (2014) define self-reflection as the conscious decision that which an individual acknowledges and evaluates their actions. Thus, these said actions could include being forthcoming about the intentions and motives that are considered personal benefits. In addition, the center of self-reflection consists of the individual’s emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Universally goals that counselors should incorporate in conjunction with adhering to self-reflection include conscious awareness, thoughts, and feelings (Pompeo & Levitt, 2014). Both self-reflection and self-awareness are routine developments that are utilized to assist counselors with becoming proficient in cultural practices.
As we have discussed Stephanie’s heritage, we have seen the impact a person’s cultural heritage can have on them as a counselor. As we have discussed, it’s important for the therapist to have self awareness about not only their cultural heritage, but also areas they are prone to privilege and also discrimination, as both of these can lead to barriers in the therapeutic alliance. As counselors work on becoming culturally competent counselors they will want to reflect on their own bias, assumptions, and stereotypes, gain knowledge about various cultures, and utilize this information in a way that will make them culturally competent counselors.
Implications for practice Findings showed that for a proper care planning, vital stability factors as well as specific identified in the study must be dully addressed and considered. On this premise, the relevance and importance of our principal framework (Figure 3) transcends risk identification and elimination but provide an explanation on how the challenges each factor pose at different times and situations. The translation of our evidence into actionable insight which would facilitate smooth practice is ongoing and the stage involve the formulation, design, piloting, and propagation of evident-based tools which can aid social workers to successfully make efficient, actionable formulation, and care plans for placement that appears unstable and at the verge of collapsing. Research recommendations While efforts have been concentrated on developing a working model of placement instability in this study, there is a need for more in-depth analysis and report on the fundamental processes supporting the effects of vulnerability and protective factors. For instance, there is
