Health professionals, carers and patients have different opinions on who and when to initiate discussion about prognosis and end-of-life issues. According to Clayton (2005), there are four approaches: wait for the patient/carer to raise the topic (1); HPs to offer all PC patients and their carers the opportunity to discuss the future (2); HPs to initiate the discussion when the patient/family needs to know (3); or HPs to initiate the discussion when the patient/family seems ready (4). (Clayton et al., 2005(2)) In the first approach, health professionals wait an offer from patient/carers to discuss the topic. They are afraid of hurting the patients by initiating discussion when their patients are not ready to hear.
That is why I think before I speak because I do not like hurting people’s feelings. *I have used this skill when I was listening to a friend talk about her problems, instead of judging her for what she is going through I thought of support words that will get her mind off the bad things. * Social workers always have to think about what is better for their clients.
In a situation where a counsellor or a therapist would be suffering from stress there is no way they can help their client overcome the trauma.

Most, if not all of these were present within Kym’s family, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it was clear that when these conditions were present Kym was negatively affected by them. This was especially apparent when criticism, judgement, or interpretations of Kym’s behaviors as methods to attract attention were present. It is possible that Kym has developed conditions of worth as she would receive more attention and empathy when she was in a crisis, as pointed out by both Rachel and Kym. The conditional positive regard she would receive likely contributed to the development of these conditions of worth and the incongruence between her actual and ideal self. This is further supported by statements by Rachel like that she only wanted Kym to “get better or die”, and Kym telling her family that they cannot dictate her life forever but soon afterwards asking them “who do I have to be now?”.
It is possible that the patient was irritable that night, but it is also possible that the nurse did not take the time to understand how the patient wished to be cared for. I think that understanding my patient’s connection to his spirituality helped me see a larger side of his holistic needs, and may have been an intervention that could have been implemented earlier. Nursing can at times be stressful, which can lead nurses to be impatient or rushed when working with patients with complex needs. It is necessary for us to recognize our weaknesses as nurses and adapt our abilities to cater to all patients. For example, when a patient is frustrated and acting out verbally to the staff, it would be necessary to address exactly why these feelings are present.

Through MI a client’s personal motivation is strengthened and makes the client committed to a specific goal. It elicits and explores the client’s reason to change within an atmosphere of competence and compassion. Strengthening the client’s motivation for change is the primary purpose of this practice model. Rollnick & Allison (20 argues that MI is done ‘for’ and ‘with’ a person.
This is why the first step to a successful counseling session is establishing a theraputic realtionship with clients. Both the counselor and client can have desired and expected results of counseling. A counselor may want several results for him/herself as well as for the client. An example of this would be a counselor wanting to achieve using a technique appropriately and seeing the client improve from it. However, a counselor’s personal desire may negatively efffect counseling if done unethically and inappropriately.
Rational emotive behaviour therapists aim to teach their clients how to separate the evaluation of their behaviours from the evaluation of themselves and to accept themselves despite their imperfections.

Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy Integrative behavioral couple therapy (IBCT) is a new approach to couple therapy. It was developed by Andrew Christensen, a clinical psychologist and late Neil S. Jacobson, who was also clinical psychologist.
