Christians who counsel in secular settings may be limited to implicit integration. In other words, being mindful of not speaking on how the counselor feels about his/her religion. Even pastoral counselors may engage in implicit integration when working with those who don’t want to bring up religious values. Implicit integration is cautioned by a counselor’s presuppositions about God’s role in human life and how these presuppositions shape the way a counselor relates to a client. The counselors job is to get to know the client as much as much with less talking.
By doing so I point out the discrepancy. In order to be an affective counselor you must have empathy, show that you caring and concern by your behavior. Having good body positions, building rapport, eye contact and great attending skills inspires affective counseling. Failing to doing so can cause the client to feel uncomfortable and not progress. A counselor should try and meet the client in their shoes.
Integration of Christian Faith into Life Coaching Life Coaching is about the client, their needs and understanding their worldview, not the coach’s personal beliefs, worldview or Christian worldview. Studies have shown that this belief or way of defining the boundaries of a life coach has made it more difficult for Christian life coaches to integrate into their coaching sessions the value of faith or a Christian worldview. It has also been shown that a Christian life coach that was able to integrate questions dealing with Christian world view or faith helped facilitate better life choices and moving forward for the client. Therefore, faith and Christian worldview integration is essential to one’s life in general and is important to life coaching.
For both characters, meditation probably would have helped them the most because they would be able to contemplate all that has happened without being interrupted or judged. I think that they should have talked to somebody or looked for guidance from their religion to help them sort through all their problems, sins, and
Additionally, as a counselor, it is important to be genuine with whatever feedbacks one presents to the patient and what one believes regarding the situation of the client. Mrs. Perez believes the more authentic and genuine he is with her patients, the more help he will be able to offer the clients. As a counselor, it is important to have a fine and professional interaction with one 's client but boundaries must be maintained. Through this, a counselor is able to demonstrate their focus on helping the patients by showing the client that they understand their problems.

In the book, it talks about how reflective feelings shows the client that we the counselor understands what the client is feelings. Reflective feelings also are helpful in the paraphrasing aspects of counseling. Both techniques go hand in hand in building that relationship with the client. The client wants to feel understood and that the counselor actually cares about their
Religion is important to believe in because of faith, self-confidence, and unwillingness to forgive oneself. Religion is important for many countries/people because they are willing to have faith in God or gods and goddesses to make sure they are forsaken and taken care of in their own right.

A therapist needs to be open-mined in counseling families in which are from a different background, culture, or religion because biases can easily crop up. We tend to naturally judge others who are not similar to ourselves and as a counselor this can hinder the effectiveness and counseling process. Being aware of these biases in family therapy can create an atmosphere for effective therapy to happen. Beutler, Crago, and Arizmendi (1986) recently noted that “many authors are urging therapists both to attend to their own religious and attitudinal systems and to be aware of the potential value of those of their clients (p.
I also appreciated that this assessment has a section about the strengths of the client, and their family. I think that including a positive light on this type of paperwork is important for both the family and the therapist. I believe that if a person always looks, and is presented with negativity, it is harder to grow and heal. This is because negative thoughts about a person, or their situation can throw the client into deeper depression, anxiety, or anything else they are struggling with. They may think “what is the point of getting better”?
What is Religion? To me, religion can have different meanings depending on the individual. Of course there is the textbook definition or the definitions you can find in various dictionaries, but I believe most people have a general idea in their head what religion means to them. To some people when the word religion pops up they automatically think about organized religion as a whole, but others think about specific religions common in their geographic location, such as Buddhism. Then there is the people who see religion as more of a way to conform to moralistic thinking, or a way of living a certain way.

My ideal outcome with respect to this course is: develop a background of knowledge with association to religion in order to evaluate people’s actions and statements; advance my professional characteristics by refraining from acting bias when approached with a religious dilemma; reduce my ignorance by educating myself on how to act appropriately around people who follow various religions. In the video “Studying Religion: Why Bother?” it mentions that religion can influence people’s thoughts as well as feelings, motivates strong actions, manipulates someone into using religion for scare tactics, in addition to allows someone to justify their actions based off their religion. To that end, in today’s society, people should study religion because
