Hispanic woman in her thirties recently struggling with alcohol and drug addiction since the loss of her job. Client has been living in this country for a few years and married to American-born citizen for fifteen years old. Husband travels frequently for his job which makes for little time together. The client has not attempted to make friends and feels alone. Client has made mention of waiting to go to sleep permanently. Husband has been concerned for wife’s safety and has brought her into therapy for assistance.
How this alliance is created is by him asking questions about the client such as “why are you here”, “what are your strengths”, and “what do you wish to gain from therapy”? This technique helps him get to know the client and establish a better understanding of the client’s case. Nonetheless, this helps the client “unfold” and become comfortable to disclose more information about the issues. After they have become comfortable, they start to create goals together that are in the client’s interest. The kinds of questions he prefers to ask this population is “where do you see yourself in five years”, “how were your past relationships”, and “what are your strengths”?
(Arnold and Boggs, 2011, p. 474). There is a distinct purpose for team meetings that is concentrated on a discussion about targeted clients and their family need and attaining related treatment goals. “Interprofessional and interdisciplinary collaborations require deliberate effort on the part of the groups involved. The key to collaboration is recognizing and having the present the components that are necessary and sufficient for the collaboration to work”. (Pressler & Kenner, 2012).
The program will initially require the client to come to the agency each weekday for group therapy, psychoeducational groups, skills building, individual therapy and pharmacological assessments and check-ins. Depending on the client’s progress, this may be shortened to three days a week. Individual therapy will focus on the development of the therapeutic alliance and internal cooperation and co-consciousness between
Even the name of this approach creates a difference between approaches of the past; in the past the people who came to therapy were called patients, but in this approach they are known as clients. This idea created an idea of equal partnership within the therapeutic relationship, rather than an expert treating a patient. Within this approach, it is the job of the client to improve his or her own life, not the job of the therapist. The therapist is there more as a guide to finding one’s true self, rather than the person in the session who is to give all of the answers away. Because of this unique relationship in each situation, there is a lack of techniques to use within the therapeutic session.
Introduction Throughout the treatment process, it is vitally important that the therapist work with the client on the reassessment of treatment goals. There are numerous reasons for reassessment to occur; the chief reason is that client’s needs continuously change. The goal, objective, situation, all could have changed drastically since the start. For instance, if the client was hospitalized within the year, reassessment to examine what the effect that situation caused and the clients functioning, is needed. There may be new problems, new goals, or new interventions needed.
This therapy model incorporates five core components imperative in providing quality therapy through a strong therapeutic relationship while emphasizing client strengths (Cohen Mannarino, & Deblinger, 2006, p. 32). Additionally, practitioners using TF-CBT, implement various developmental and culturally appropriate therapeutic interventions based on client need to establish individual growth (Cohen et al., 2006, p. 33). Furthermore, TF-CBT is a short-term trauma model accomplished in six to 12 sessions.
The key to establishing a trusting relationship is the integration, usage, and mastery of therapeutic communication skills (Belcher & Jones, 2009).Due to the high importance of effective communication in mental health nursing, it is essential in therapeutic interventions. (Peplau, 1952) states that effective interpersonal skills are central to a mental health nurse’s ability to form a sound therapeutic alliance and to the role of mental health nurses. Excellent interpersonal aptitudes are what every mental health nurse needs to communicate effectively with clients. Active listening is more than just hearing what the client has to say, nurse must be actively engaging with the client, physically, emotionally and mentally. Effective listening is therefore a cognitive, behavioural and an affective process (Arnold and Underman Boggs,
Although some rightfully argue that all counseling is cross-cultural, when working with clients who are from a different culture than one’s own, the schism is often great. Therefore, cross-cultural competence is a theme we will visit and revisit throughout this text, and I will offer a number of ways for you to lessen the gap between you and your client. One model that can help bridge the gap is D’Andrea and Daniela’s (2005) RESPECTFUL Counseling Model, which highlights ten factors that counselors should consider addressing with
The primary purpose of the practices is to help the patients to recover in the best way possible and also bond them together with the patients. The strategies, however, are also specific to certain adjustment problems. Close patient and clinical officer’s relationship can help the patients in this case to bond well and recover from their traumatic experiences. The close patient clinical officer’s relationship that involves effective communication with the patients helps to create an ambient environment for the adjustment (Grol & Grimshaw,
In individual therapy, free association occurs between a client and therapist. Client are allowed to say whatever that comes to their mind and as a therapist, he or she has to listen attentively without interrupting. As compared to group therapy, sessions conducted are among those with similar disorder whereas members are expected to be quick in participating without censorship. Anyone is allowed to say what comes in his or her mind during the group therapy. At most, it might create confusion in a group that is not helpful enough but in this method, it promotes members to be actively participation in the group process (Corey, 2015, p.
Therapeutic Relationships are not black and white and creating a positive relationship will take skill and work. Unfortunately, data is scarce on the effects of therapeutic relationships. However, we as educators, have first hand experience in the effectiveness of positive relationships and connecting with people. There are many reasons why the relationship between the client and counselor is considered to be extremely important in a session.
How does one decide if he/she is component as a therapist to treat a client? In beginning to write this paper the assignment called for me to read the Association for Marriage and Family therapy ethics. This allowed me to gain some understanding of what it look like to be component to treat a client. One of the ideas that was mentioned was to make sure that there was training in the area of specialty that would be used in the therapy process.
A therapeutic nurse-patient relationship is defined as a helping relationship that's based on mutual trust and respect, the nurturing of faith and hope, being sensitive to self and others, and assisting with the gratification of your patient's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through your knowledge and skill (Pullen & Tabatha, 2010). This caring relationship develops when you and your patient come together in the moment, which results in harmony and healing. The five components of the nurse-client relationship are trust, respect, professional intimacy, empathy and power. To establish a therapeutic nurse-patient relationship, a nurse must master a few key components, including trust and respect. As a nurse, you should introduce yourself to your patients and refer to the patient by name.
