Duffy and Chenail (2008) stated when using a research approach in counseling, the counselor needs to make sure they understand the value and the purpose of the research study. The research needs to be appropriate to the client needs. Therefore, the counselor should be aware of the role and the responsibilities when using research for their client that they might not be any biases or cultural sensitive towards the client, if the counselor does not feel comfortable using the research the counselor can also reference “The Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association”. Sherpis and Daniels (2017) specified when a counselor is conducting a research study or using a research they should consider the dignity and welfare of the client. The counselor needs to make sure to respect clients at all times.
It is engaging completely, paying attention to change of thoughts, emotions, and body language. Then I learned the importance as a counselor to mirror back the same tone and body language because it can greatly impact the counseling relationship. I should also restate what I heard to let the client know I was listening and understand. I learned that these things help show empathy to the
A very successful method in treating borderline personality disorder is Dialectical behavior therapy which falls under the psychoeducational category. DBT is a standard form of treatment for BPD, it is evidence-based, and was created specifically for patients with BPD. DBT skills training group is a group therapy session where life skills are taught. DBT individual therapy focuses on working on the patient’s drive, and it is done synchronously with the group session. DBT phone coaching is used to help patients with skills to cope with difficult situations, patients are able to call their therapists if a crisis arises.
The function is to change people response in therapy, to listen to the therapist and respect their role and last the let information about family be received (Sharf, 2012). Straightforward task where direction and suggestion are made by the therapist to the family to problems and paradox task for resistant family who do not change (Sharf, 2012).
What is therapeutic alliance/therapeutic relationship? It is the relationship of trust between the client and the therapist that allows them to work together effectively. It helps the client to believe that their therapist is trustworthy and has their best interest at heart. For instance, the therapist might make the client mad or uncomfortable about a certain situation; because their relationship is in a healthy space the client proceeds along because he/she still feels safe and trust their therapist. Consistency, respect, and trust are important building blocks towards a good therapeutic relationship.
If our behavior is derived from our worldview, then our faith should impact how we think and our behavior when interacting with others. Christian psychologist David Myers, of Hope College, explains how he integrates his Christian worldview into the world of psychology. Myers explains that, “Believing that in everything we deal with God, and feeling called to worship with our minds, we search Gods world, seeking to discern its truths.” (Myers, 1996). Myers goes on to discuss how it is a religious duty that our faith act as our attitude in everything that we do. Miltenberger says, “Because a behavior is an action, its occurrence can be observed.” (Miltenberger, 2016).
The second technique/intervention that I wish to integrate into my counseling style is Scaling. Scaling is a good approach at providing the client with a visual of how attainable a certain task, goal, or objective is. More importantly, it helps the counselor hear the client’s mindset in achieving that goal/objective. Nevertheless, Scaling helps both the client and the professional have a visual of how much the client has improved since the start of treatment, what the client improved on, and the client’s thoughts on the improvement.
With any relationship, listening skills are needed to show clients you understand and interpret the information correctly. I need to work on the following skills being more attentive in non-verbal ways, such as; summarizing the details the client is explaining to me. I need to remind myself as an upcoming vocational rehabilitation counselor to ask more open ended questions when gather information because it will help me acquire more details so I can better help them through the vocational process. I hope to create a working alliance between all my clients because I feel this is essential for an individual to be successful in a counseling environment that will help the client achieve their
And although talking to God is definitely an aspect of prayer, prayer is more that just that. So, so, so much more. As the Catechsim says, prayer is that personal and life-giving relationship with God that every individual is called to. (CCC 2558) Let that sink in for a moment. Prayer isn't just part of our relationship with God: it is our relationship with God.
The relevant form of counselling is therapeutic counselling. I understand this to mean the process of listening to a client and offering neutral comment and advice. It does not entail telling a client what the solution is to their issue, the aim is to help guide the client so that they can establish a resolution in their own mind which will help them resolve the issue or help them to see how to achieve their personal aims and goals. Counselling will use tools such as hypnotherapy and coaching in order to help the
