This condition helps people get the most out of their counselling session and in turn this helps them reach their full potential as they feel valued as the counsellor accepts them for who they are. Congruence is also known as genuineness and according to Rogers “it is the most important attribute in counselling due to the way that it underpins the experiencing of unconditional positive regard and empathy”. Seligman (2006) states that if a counsellor’s body language does not reflect what they are saying, clients will pick up on this and it will reflective on the counsellor client relationship as trust could be lost. Congruence means the counsellor needs to be real and
Strengths perspective, conflict perspective, and empowerment theory were chosen to use in our domestic violence shelter. We believe that these two perspectives and theory best explain human behavior and help us as social workers to understand to our clients. Each client behavior is multidimensional, meaning that we will implement multiple perspectives and theories throughout our practice. The strengths perspective “focuses on the strengths on the client, but not on the problem or sickness or diagnostic label” (Morton, 2017).
What is therapeutic alliance/therapeutic relationship? It is the relationship of trust between the client and the therapist that allows them to work together effectively. It helps the client to believe that their therapist is trustworthy and has their best interest at heart. For instance, the therapist might make the client mad or uncomfortable about a certain situation; because their relationship is in a healthy space the client proceeds along because he/she still feels safe and trust their therapist. Consistency, respect, and trust are important building blocks towards a good therapeutic relationship.
This assignment will provide evidence and knowledge of understanding the concept of care based on a service user who has a long term condition of mental health and was diagnosed of severe Depression with Psychosis.

The therapist then helps the patient better understand how to deal with people in their lives in order to avoid depression. The last element is interpretation. Normally therapists will listen quietly to the patient, but therapists will occasionally inject and offer interpretations on the topics their patient discussed. Dream interpretation was believed by Freud to be very important in order to understand our unconscious minds. The therapist may ask patients to describe their dreams and try interpreting what elements in life has caused them to feel

Essentially, the clinician teaches their patients suffering from PTSD how to replace unreasonable thought patterns with healthy, coherent ones. At the core of this talk-therapy method is learning how to avoid reacting in a purely emotional manner (which is another debilitating symptom of PTSD) and replacing it with self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-reliance. CBT is particularly effective with PTSD clients because it helps the client identify their irrational and maladaptive dogmas so they can consciously replace them with realistic beliefs. Since a human’s mind has a resilient propensity to lock onto familiar notions and remain unchanged despite the negative or stagnant outcomes of PTSD, CBT assertively addresses this phenomena by having the client complete homework assignments, partake in role playing exercises and actively tackle their own distressing thoughts. While this therapeutic
Person centred practice is where all service users should be treated as individuals and their care that they require and support needs should reflect this. Each and every service user will have specific individual needs and their care plans and support should be tailored to suit their needs. By seeing the person as an individual and recognising their diversity puts the individual at the centre of their care. Person centred practice is not only about supporting people with their individual support needs and care but also about getting to know the person, what their likes and dislikes are, what makes them happy and bring them joy, knowing what their values are, family situations, social circumstances and lifestyles.
