What is not said can be even more important than what is said aloud. As a therapist, you must help the client talk about all areas of concern, not just the superficial problems. The therapist must also talk about things that are uncomfortable to talk about, as those can be very important. The therapist must be responsive to what the client is telling them and make sure the client’s experiences are being attended to. The client must feel like they are being attended to and that they are not being judged.
Also demonstrate the speaker that you are attempting to see the world as they see it, and that you are trying your hardest to comprehend their messages. Although, (C) was looking angry, I tried to show her that I had understood her feelings of anxiety by saying "you mentioned suffering? ", and then keeping quiet to sway them to keep talking. According to Jones (2009) reflection is helping the client to perceive and acknowledge his feeling. The medical caretaker shows the client 's perspective has esteem and have right to take decisions.

When being honest, a person can see how they truly appear and shape who they can become. The reason I believe that I am honest is that I observe and reflect on the actions I take so that I can properly change myself according to the situation. The integrity of a person is another major part of honesty, where I treat other people the way I want them to treat me. This is another reason why friendships and relationships can last a long time, and also why I am able to easily avoid escalating a situation. This is crucial when handling people who have been physically hurt, as they can become aggressive.

It is always important to remember to treat the client as normally as possible, and to show respect to foster a good therapeutic relationship with the client.

Therapeutic techniques that can be employed to overcome these barriers include; approach the client from the front and maintain position in front of the client when communicating, reduce noise and other distractions, avoid eating or drinking when speaking, use a clear tone and normal rate of speech. An example of a cognitive barrier to therapeutic communication is the presence
Despite JB expressing his dislike of being placed in seclusion, nursing and medical staff agreed JB’s capacity to make an informed autonomous decision was impaired due to his current mental distress. Roberts (2004) states that the paternalism in mental health is rationalized through the concept that mental illness can inhibit a persons’ competency and ability to act autonomously in the governance of their care and therefore principles of beneficence and non-maleficence must be introduced to ensure that person receives adequate care. Prinsen & van Delden (2009) also argue that coercive measures such as seclusion can be necessary in reclaiming personal autonomy and control. However this paternalistic viewpoint of overruling a patient’s autonomy is arguable especially if a person is deemed incompetent due to their mental illness. Szasz believed mental illness was mythical and the introduction of a diagnosis was merely to label social deviancy from social norms.
The state of patient’s health condition may be so bad he/she may want to be killed or commit a suicide but the job as a physician is to work the best they can in finding a solution for the pain or suffering. Physicians are there to heal not to kill, for which there are others,
As long as human are in existence there will always be a need for a counsellor or a social worker. The intent of this paper is to provide clarity as it relates to the differences between counselling and social work as both professions sometimes overlap and persons are not able to differentiate between the two professions. Notwithstanding the fact that both professions have their differences it not be noted that both career paths is considered to be the helping profession where adequate training and preparation is needed in order to help their client improve their social, emotional and mental performance.

Even if the patient comes in on the wrong day and is very angry, you should still remain calm and helpful. If you are really nice to the patient, even when they are in a really bad mood, it could be very hard for them to be mean back to you. By responding in a kind and helpful manner it demonstrates your professionalism and the professionalism of the office. (Beamen, 2015) I agree with what you

Another role of the FMHN is to promote recovery. Care that promotes recovery enables the patient to integrate into the community and also balances power and priorities between the nurse and the patient (Dorkins and Adshead 2011). This can be difficult and very challenging especially in forensic settings due to the offending behaviour of the patient (Dorkins and Adshead 2011). In a situation where patients are on their way to recovery, are given therapeutic leave to attend groups and to the community. This can help with their recovery and also give the patient autonomy.
