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
(Rogers, 1979) 6. The communication to the client of the therapist’s empathic understanding and unconditional positive regard are to some degree achieved PCT emphasises the relationship between the counsellor and the client. For PCT to be effective, the client must be aware, to some level, of the existence of the therapist’s empathy and unconditional positive regard for the client. If not, they do not exist in the relationship for client and so change cannot occur in therapy (Rogers,
Ethically, it is the integrity, competence, social responsibility, and refinement of moral practice by continuing education. The counselor must provide services where the counselor constantly strives to become better in their profession by continual learning, growing, and develop skilled, ethical judgment to provide the highest level of care that exceeds the client's expectations. Continuing education, conducting research, or involving one’s self in multicultural groups or opportunities to learn about other cultures is a way to continue to grow and best serve multicultural
Individuality- They should never have to fit in with you or your employer. Individuals should be allowed and supported to make their own choices. Independence- You must allow the individual that you are supporting to do things themselves. Being independent does not mean being alone, but being supported to do things for themselves. Privacy- As a care worker you will need to understand that each individual need’s privacy and support in different ways.
With respect to the counseling relationship, understanding through empathy is seen as a skill that can build rapport, elicit information, and help the client feel accepted (Egan, 2010; Neukrug&Schwitzer, 2006). Because empathy is seen as an important personal attribute as well as a critical skill to
The four core ethical principles that are called into question in the movie “Miss Evers’ Boys” are autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice. Autonomy refers to the right of the patient to function independently and the ability to self-direct. This means that patients are entitled to decide what will happen to them, and if deemed competent, they have the right to either consent to or refuse treatment. All nurses and healthcare personal would be required to respect the patient’s wishes, even if they do not agree with them. Beneficence is the core principle that refers to the act of ‘doing good’ and advocating for the patient.
According to Beauchamp and Childress (2013), the principle of beneficence is the promotion of good and removal of harm while non-maleficence is to do no harm to others. Promoting the welfare and doing no harm to people has always been the goal of nursing. Therefore, we should inform his family so that they can take precaution, which will reduce the risk of HIV transmission. For instance, his wife can avoid unprotected sex with him if she knows about his HIV status. Also, family members can go for a HIV test and seek treatment if
Empathy is vital in the counselling process, by the counsellor feeling empathetic towards the client means the client is more likely to connect with the counsellor which will aid the recovery process. Empathy is shown through understanding of the clientâ€™s emotions, showing genuine interest, concern and respect of the clientâ€™s thoughts and feelings about what they are saying. Empathy is also displayed through the counsellor showing warm body language towards the
The principle of autonomy is based on the Principle of Respect for Persons, which holds that individual persons have right to make their own choices and develop their own life plan. In a health care setting, the principle of autonomy translates into the principle of informed consent. You shall not treat a patient without the informed consent of the patient or his or her lawful surrogate, except in narrowly defined exceptions (3). In order to affirm autonomy, every effort must be made to discuss treatment preferences with patients and to document them in the patients’ charts. Informed consent is one of the most key components to autonomy of a patient and is a multifaceted concept that requires not only the patient to be assessed as being
It is true that social awareness adds up to the comprehension of ethics. From a personal point of view, social awareness implies the ability to understanding other people’s feelings for the betterment of one 's well being. As I grew, I noted that there are components of a character that parents cannot offer merely because they entail personal decisions. As such, social awareness is inherent, and no one is forced to put it into practice. However, it must apply in all cases of life, especially in the nursing arena.
Making sure a person is safe should be everyone 's number one priority. Even though people go to therapists because they want someone to talk to who won 't judge them or divulge their secrets, divulging information about harming another person does not fall under that category. I agree that it can be very difficult for a therapist to decide when a patient actually intends on following through with the death threats or if the patient is just trying to vent. However, if he or she is a good therapist, then he or she should know their patient well enough to decide whether they are being serious. Not only that, but when a patient begins therapy, their therapist is required to tell them all the things that if they say, the therapist is required by law to tell the police.
We have Verbal, Nonverbal, listening and responding and asking questions as listening skills listed in chapter 7 of our text books. I feel two would be best when dealing with a resistant client. I feel listening and responding as well as asking questions are the most effective ways to deal with a client who just does not want to be in front of you, or does not agree with having to be in front of you. I feel listening and responding is effective because if the client is quiet, extremely demanding or totally unmotivated we need to listen to them and allow them to express themselves in any way they feel they need to for us to understand their point of view. I can see next follow with questions being very effective.
Identifying the problem is the first step. On this step, it is determined whether the matter involves ethics. Without doubt the subject of confidentiality is an ethical standard that has to be granted except in cases in which the security of the patient is in jeopardy. The clinician must initially ensure the clients security. However there is no need to reveal sexual orientation information.
Orders must be carried out according to the best solution for the patient. A patient 's confidentiality is essential and by law must never be compromised in any way. All people should be entitled to medical treatment by physicians and should not be discriminated due to their demographics. In a typical ethical work atmosphere, the employees should know the limitations and need to pay attention to the lines. To remain ethical and professional they must have a strong ethic underlining
The characteristics include empathy, caring, positive attitude, respect, hope, genuineness, autonomy for the client, and mutuality (Austin, 2002, pp. 119-127). These all are important due to the fact they all support a successful atmosphere to work in. Looking at the list, you realize you must minimize the potential for negativity. The client needs these to feel as if they matter as well as establish their self-worth.
