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
This condition helps people get the most out of their counselling session and in turn this helps them reach their full potential as they feel valued as the counsellor accepts them for who they are. Congruence is also known as genuineness and according to Rogers “it is the most important attribute in counselling due to the way that it underpins the experiencing of unconditional positive regard and empathy”. Seligman (2006) states that if a counsellor’s body language does not reflect what they are saying, clients will pick up on this and it will reflective on the counsellor client relationship as trust could be lost. Congruence means the counsellor needs to be real and
I would be calm and collected in any situation,because I am mentally organized,very meticulous,and neat. In conclusion; looking back on my childhood years my whole life I 've always wanted to help others. Perhaps becoming an RN in turn would help me be a better person. Reality,and realization will force one to appreciate the little things in life and take nothing for granted. For instance,health, life ,and family.
Description Reflection is a necessary component in learning to regulate opinion, feelings, and actions. Reflection links experience and knowledge by providing an opportunity to explore areas of concern in a critical way and to make adjustments based on these reflections (Knowles Z., Tyler G., 2006). I will be using the Gibbs G (1988) Learning by Doing: A guide to teaching and learning methods (Davies S., 2012). For this assignment, we were asked to conduct coaching sessions in groups of three with our colleagues for two months and draft a reflective essay on our experience. I hope this reflective essay will help me understand the in-depth concepts of coaching while helping me interact and respond better to people in different situations.
Experiencing peer pressure is a way to learn how to overcome pressure and to discover ourselves. We can not become perfect, but we definitely become stronger, more confident and are willing to cope with difficulties. Exposure to peer pressure also gives us an opportunity to think about other people’s outlooks towards life. It is a chance for us to choose the best from what the masses do as well as lead us to make right choices in life. To minimize the bad effects of peer pressure, parential involvement plays a very important part – it promote healthy behaviors and decrease the chance to engage in risky behavior.
I can also compare my strengths and weaknesses to make a personal development plan to provide myself with motivation but this can also allow me to deliver a high quality service to the children and their parents during transitions, such as; delivering empathy, coping mechanisms and education. Consistency is key and I will be consistent with my behaviours and delivery to help the children progress and reach their full potential therefore I will continue carrying out observations to keep parents informed of their child’s progress when beginning school and throughout the year. I believe I have learned from my chosen theme on transitions. Beginning my essay I was nervous writing about transitions and this scared me from investigating different transitions that occur for children and how to support them. When I began to think of my own practice and investigate websites it give me a foundation to complete the essay but to also apply changes to my own
Working as a teacher assistant means displaying a modelling behaviour towards children, young people and adults. Modelling behaviour can be reflected by several ways but our behaviour and communication are the first reflection of our personality and image. School are the first institutes children come to meet new friends and skills to tackle them individually. Effective communication is a two way process, it involves how we say and how considerately we listen to the other person. It is very important to listen to the child even though it doesn 't make sense because that 's how you are building confidence and self esteem in him or her which will help him later with other peers.
My development of soft skills started with having a sense respect for the position I was in, and for the individuals I came into contact with. Although I think soft skills are natural, the skills can further be nurtured by having confidence in oneself and abilities through hard work. For example, a nurse will come across someone who is facing adversity each day. It is important to be calm, and know the best way to handle the situation. Not only does the nurse need hard knowledge of how to solve the issue, the nurse must also display soft skills which will instill confidence inside the patient.
Being confident shows your audience you are comfortable talking about your topic and that you are well informed on what you are specking of. Another thing that I can improve on is relaxing, for example, to not be so nervous. If I can think two steps ahead before I speak it would prepare me for what I am about to say which will allow my words to flow out smoothly and correctly. I plan on improving these skills by practicing more speeches in front of people and doing some relaxation exercises before my speech. I believe by implementing more speeches and doing some of the exercises, it will have me more relaxed, keep my mind focused and boost up my confidence so that I may present my speech flawlessly for an A plus grade.
Moreover, exercise can also improve the mental health as it improves memory, helps to sleep better, and alleviate stress. In the article “The Mental Health Benefits of Exercise,” (n.d) the author indicates that doing simple exercise can make a difference, regardless the age or fitness level, one should learn to make the exercise as a tool to feel much better. Thus, everyone has to take the exercises as a daily routine in order to enjoy good
(Corey & California State University, 2013). In most of my sessions as an upcoming vocational rehabilitation counselor you will find me using CBT because it has a specific agenda. It is a directive approach in the sense that we show we model positive behavior to our clients which can help them obtain their goal. It is a process were we as therapist we teach our clients how work through negative situations and turn them into a positive experience for our clients. All of us find ourselves upset about things when, in fact the situation isn’t like we think it is and being aware of this issue would help us not waste our time upsetting ourselves.
Being taught the proper way to speak about disabilities really helps, I am now trying to speak in “ Person first” so as not to discriminate or place a stigma upon a person’s shoulders. When I eventually become a teacher all the new information I learned about diversity and disabilities in SED 125 such as knowing that not all children learn the same way or that some children may have a bigger struggle than others, and how to build healthy positive relationships with my future student. I will try to apply all the new information to my classroom
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
The scenario examples would make me feel comfortable and confident in the client during any instance of pressure to use; hopefully, the client would feel confident in himself from my judgment. The method that seems described from my last sentence is motivational interviewing. When the client has worked with the counselor to set goals for themselves, the motivation possibly is then increased for change. The client did not show any signs of resistance during the session and became aware of identifying alternative activities in reducing excessive caffeine use. I was impressed with how the counselor allowed the client progress at his own speed with implementing the behavior changes.
I am less able to change the subject from me to her in order to avoid the hard work I need to do. And Marci challenges me no doubt! I am constantly having the kind of “aha!” moments that help remind me that there is progress and these moments keep me going. Marci is great in group therapy too. She encourages participation and keeps the group safe and respectful.
