According to Burks & stefflre (1979), counselling refers to the relationship of professional relationships between counsellors and clients. Besides this, Krumboltz defined counselling as an ethical activity undertaken by a counsellor in assisting an individual for the purpose of directing the behaviour to motivate himself to solve the problem. The present relationship refers to the relationship between two individuals, though sometimes involves more than two individuals. These established relationships are aimed at expressing clients’ views of life, and at the same time enabling them to make the best choice for themselves after successfully embracing emotional and interpersonal issues. As a simple conclude by provided definition from scholars,
It requires the person to look critically at the current reality and clarifying what is important to them and what they need to do to achieve what they want. This generates what is referred to as creative tension and in personal mastery it requires individuals to learn how to identify and deal with the creative tension in their lives. Creative tension can only be resolved when reality moves towards the vision. It requires individuals to be proactive in their lives striving to learn and add value. For me becoming the best version of oneself and attaining a level of personal mastery is not only restricted to a single aspect of an individual’s life, i.e.
As I regard my client as a person I cared about, I might be easily to get influence by my client emotions. This in turn may cause me to be subjective rather than objective as a counsellor. Nevertheless, to not be affected by the emotional issue, I must have high self-awareness with better understanding of myself. It is important to have counsellors to regularly examine their own issues and hone their counselling skills to prevent their personal biases from interfering with their counselling session. In such case, to have an effective counselling, certain strategies could be used.
In existential therapy, therapists are mainly concerned with " understanding the subjective world of clients to help them come to new understandings and options." (Corey, 2009, p. 148). Helping clients accept the responsibility of their own lives allows them to move from emotional angst and self-deception, toward the joy of achieving personal potential (Corey, 2009). The therapist acts as a mirror, of sorts, to reflect some of the self-imposed constrictions and limitations preventing the client from further growth. Most existential therapists use a variety of loosely stated techniques with
As I read the clients message I struggled in identifying how I should address the dilemma at hand and wonder if perhaps not responding right away and seeking assistance from my program supervisor could help me make the right decision. I was cleared that as a social worker I have the moral obligation to consider the ethical implications of my decisions in others and wanted to help the client to the best of my abilities. As I struggled I considered the ethical principals that constituted the dilemma. The first ethical principle being the dignity and worth of the person- to respect your clients right to self-determination. This can be done by helping the client enhance her capacity/ability to make her own decisions and address her own needs.
I have to look outside the box, see things from another perspective or experience otherwise, then effectively doing and promoting these things in others is necessary for good practice. Personal lives are changing, as well as people get older, as well as jobs, careers and organizations. However, human beings have a tendency to resist change and to defend them strongly. The whole process can be very worrying and distressing for service users and even carers; and negative emotions or reactions could stem out of it. It is therefore always appropriate to recognize the different stages of change and anticipate their impact in order to take preventive measures, e.g.
As the sessions get individuals questioning themselves which if done erroneously could cause agony to the coachee. I feel that I need focus more on my emotional intelligence and analytic skills. Make efforts to keep myself updated with what is happening in the coaching field as I do see potential in this career. However, as I experienced these sessions I realized in order to be a successful coach one must detach themselves from
To avoid personal bias, a leader should not only rely on self-assessment. I refer to Belbin’s team role questionnaire I did in the LPDCM class, feedback from the team, and assessment result from a consultant when I worked as an HR Director, to identify my strengths and weakness. I am aware that I have high work standard, high motivation, enjoy building a partnership, driving execution and innovation to deliver my commitment. However, I should better delegate the task and not to worry too much about the outcomes/perfection, which could result in giving too much pressure to my team. Even though my CP team enjoys our group work, I may stretch them with some pressures for detail and
When using the ethical decision making model, it is important for counsellors to be self-aware as it will influence how they deal with the behaviours and choices of the client. Self-awareness includes being aware of their emotions, values and biases. A way to work through this is to discuss their feelings of discomfort with their supervisors or colleagues (Corey, Corey, & Callanan, 2011). Self-awareness is key to competent counselling so it logically ensues that it is key to ethical decision making in counselling. A counsellor’s sense of self is important in determining how personal values are enacted with clients and their issues.
Abstract: Teaching profession is ethical by nature where the decisions/ judgments for day to day fulfillment of obligations and duties towards different stakeholders (students, parents, administration, colleague and profession) are strained with ethical constrain. These professional ethical constrains poses ethical dilemmas for the teachers. The areas giving rise to these ethical dilemmas for the teachers and the factors that are considered unethical by the teachers have been found to be given much importance in studies done globally. The cases of ethical dilemmas reported by the teachers themselves have been found revealing the grey areas of the teaching profession. Such grey areas must be brought into focus of teacher education for not only
