The essay will delve into the ethics and grey areas of value-conflicts in counselling through a reflection on my personal values, the professional values of the counselling profession and probable counsellor-client scenarios that would pose a challenge for me. Counselling is not a neutral process but is a value laden activity. (Holmes & Lindley, 1998) and “[c]ounsellors ... enact a process of influence in their everyday interactions with clients” (Spong, 2007, p. 333). So, personal values of counsellors inadvertently come into the counselling space. Upon reflecting on my own values I realise that the values that I prioritise are honesty and authenticity, freedom, trust, caring and above all, the values of feminism.
We cannot allow our beliefs and personal biases to influence the client. I believe this will be an ethical dilemma to deal. When my desire as the worker is to help the client work to the best of his/her interest and the need to respect his right to act in a way that the client feels best for him, may interfere with my job. Also, I consider confidentiality
If everyone is not interacting with the group this can cause the group to fall apart, because some people may feel like they are not apart of the group. What are some ethical issues in group practice? Some ethical issues in-group practicing is confidentiality, conflict between group members and group decision-making. Sometime in a group it can be hard to keep members confidentiality simple because it is not an individual setting it is a group setting which means that there is higher probability that member confidentially wont be kept. Shulman, L. (2012).

She clarified this by needing to stress the difference between triggered and uncomfortable. Feeling uncomfortable is part of the work in a social work organization, as we will frequently run into things that make us uncomfortable, but we need to do them anyway. Being triggered, on the other hand, is part of a mental illness and not something we can just throw around as synonymous with uncomfortable. She hopes that social workers and organizations can operative without being afraid of the uncomfortable aspects, or else it will be impossible for the organizations to
I am afraid of if I have enough time to prepare my own part at work days. However, I will try my best to finish my part of the project because this class is very important to me. Also, this project is a group work; if I fail to finish my part as our professor expected; the whole project will get a low grade. It is unfair for other group members. So far, I have finished analyzing one source already.
It is important that the counselor makes questioning an important part of the therapy (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The purpose of questioning is to make sure that the family will participate in communicating their experiences (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). When members of the family begin to tell their point of view, the way in which each person was affected is revealed (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The therapist may be able to reach the family members that may have been considered as distant or hostile. Individuals like Gary may be able to feel heard without feeling judged.
But, the job of counselors is not to impose their values, but help clients explore how their current issues are affected by their own value system. A counselor who is struggling with a client can find that the issue may have to do with value conflicts. In that instance, it is vital that the counselor seek supervision. Supervision allows counselors the ability to address their concerns and be taught ways to overcome bias and get closer to therapeutic neutrality. I know as a counselor that there will be times that I will need supervision when dealing with difficult clients, and I must be open to the idea that it may not be the client that is the
Everyone can become a leader but not everyone can become a leader at the same time. Leader must not misuse their power. They must know that their power is to lead the team to do thing accordingly and divide tasks with them or maybe call their group mates for meeting. Miss use of power will cause team to fall down and might cause conflict. Besides that, it can also cause unfairness between the group members.
Safety in group counselling is top priority. According to merriam-webster.com, Safety is freedom from harm or danger. In group sessions, keeping members safe should be a main concern of the leader. It is said that members will not participate if they do not feel safe, feeling safe in the context of group counselling is to be protected and sheltered from unfavourable occurrences in the group. I agree, it is my opinion that the dynamics of the group is at risk if members do not feel safe as this will hinder them from sharing, they will be fearful, hence they will remain reserved and the purpose of the group will not be fulfilled.
A good relationship starts with people trust each other. However, can we maintain it? Can we build a trust again after we or they broke it? Let 's find out. First of all, trusting people can sometimes be important on work so we can cooperate with them.
Many ethnic groups are resistant to treatment due to mistrust of the system and stigma around mental health. The issue of trust should be brought up in the beginning of treatment in order for the client and family to feel comfortable and be more likely to disclose information. Therefore, the therapist should establish clear and effective boundaries to ensure the development of a safe therapeutic environment on which trusting relationship can be developed and provide psycho-education on mental health to avoid resistance to treatment (Harper & Steadman, 2003). It is also very important to establish a positive working alliance with the family system as defined by the client; they are the most important resources to the client and support system to help guide the client through the therapy process and for better success in
