This comes from in relation to the characteristics that are established already inside the counselor.

The professional status of the therapist should be in respect of the patient’s case and the therapist should be transparent following the ethical code in terms of maintaining confidentiality.

Lessened contingency between input and outcome: Team members may feel they can hide in the crowd and avoid the consequences of not contributing. Or, a team member may feel lost in the crowd and unable to gain recognition for their contributions (Latane, 1998).

Their motivation for participating social events and therapies were low which made them one of the most difficult populations in psychotherapy (Glickman, 2008). Secondly, previous research suggested that the hearing-impaired population preferred one to one communication rather than a group interaction. The social worker from the organization also suggested individual sessions rather than group sessions for the target population since individual sessions would be easier for them to build connection with people and give them a better understanding of the session content. Besides, as a lower level of emotional security was found in the hearing-impaired individuals in communicating with others, an individual setting might be able to provide a sense of security in the session without
Increased awareness of the impact of one’s actions or words on the other and the willingness to take responsibility for his/her role in conflicts when they arise.4 LIMITATIONS OF IBCT 1. As with other forms of therapy, there’s the possibility of couples separating, even after treatment, bringing about a situation whereby either partner may feel that he/she has failed. Also, one or both partners could consider the process a waste of time and will be reluctant to seek help in future 2.

The short hospital stays and limited health insurance coverage might be another reason that pushes occupational therapy practitioners "towards...rapid solutions" and restricted them from incorporating creative activities to the treatment plan (Müllersdorf, p.
