This therapist pictures the counseling process to take efforts from both counselor and client. As this therapist is person-centered it is important to let the clients lead the session and direct the therapeutic efforts toward areas that they deem appropriate and necessary. This process is entirely collaborative as the counselor also takes steps to keep clients focused on their expressed and agreed upon treatment goals, to make changes to the treatment plan, or to aid in guiding the sessions as clients may not be able to lead sessions depending upon many factors, such as acuity of symptoms. Throughout this process it is important to look at diversity dimensions and work to address social justice and advocacy factors in play within a client’s experience. This author believes the best use of counselor’s efforts is to brainstorm with the client of ways to be involved on both micro and macro levels that work to help the client.
I created an environment for my client to have the capacity to trust me. As part of my active listening strategy, I wanted to maintain good body position and eye contact. I made sure my facial expression and body language were open and relaxed to let her know she would not feel judged. I think my facial expressions, tone and pace of speaking were relaxing and comfortable to her. As the session progressed, I felt confident that I was helping the client.
Though it has certain boundaries and limitations, a lot of times Marion may expect the therapist to act as the expert, instead of having to conduct the conversation themselves (Winslade & Cotter, 2002). For these reason, Narrative Therapy can be challenging especially if Marion will not be a good talker or not articulate. There are so many factors, but the only way the therapist can work well with Marion is to make her feel with an amazing self-confidence coupled with intellectual capacity and other narratives will be expressed properly. The therapist can also program some agenda for Marion to support a framework to her narrative to make her tell her stories easier. But the most important aspect of Narrative Therapy is to empower the client (Flaskas, 1999).

Some things I learned in my coaching experience, in which I consider to be part of my coaching philosophy is to always reflect on the sessions I give to my students and athletes in order to better myself. Also I try to listen to my students as sometimes they will be delivering messages that I could learn from them. Conclusion I find that one’s coaching philosophy can change according to the experiences one might have through-out their career.

In this article, a good relationship between the coach and the coachee should be built and maintained during the coaching procedures. Once a mutual trust and respect is established, the coach will move to explore what has happened (behavioral focus), what is the reason of the presenting issue based on rational explanation (conscious cognition), then work with what the coach and the coachee suspect and feel (unconscious cognition). Behavioral changes or any possible solutions will be discussed afterwards depending on what to be revealed through coaching sessions and considering the culture or working environment of the coachee’s
This comes from in relation to the characteristics that are established already inside the counselor. In the responsibilities that should be completed by the counselor is to inform the reflective interpretation from the counselor. Being an counselor comes more from the information that you retained as a student, but more so how you interact with people. The characteristics that a counselor should have are active listening skills, plenty of patience and encouragement.

Personally, I thought the test did a good job at assessing these different areas of personalities and it was a relatively easy test to take. There were some areas where I felt as if the appropriate answer for myself was not present, but this was limited to only a couple of questions. Another downside of this test may be the length, although the questions were interesting, I could feel my attention wearing thin towards the end of this 63- question survey. I think the test has useful implications on a personal level, so it would be important for clients to take this test so they can get a better understanding of their own personality and their vulnerabilities. For example, in terms of substance use, there are certain characteristics of the Big 5 personalities that are associated with substance abuse
The therapist and the client establish clear boundaries, mutual trust and respect. Sperry (2010) The chapter states “effective therapeutic alliance that is sensitive to the client’s needs, expectation, and explanatory model; that engenders trust and hope in the therapist and therapy process; and that engages the client in the treatment process”. Allows the therapist to focus on client treatment and assist the client with developing skills, acceptance of strengths, weakness, developing realistic goals and developing new skills and abilities. The therapist and client have a mutual understanding of the goals which will assist with establishing and developing treatment for client.

Submit the coop teacher approved mini lesson plan to your supervisor for review today which is at least 2 days before the lesson is taught so that it can be returned to you with comments.
