It has an influence on social care work, because we need to make sure that we are communicating well, and listening to the individual's wishes and preferences, and we need to remember not to dothings without discussing it with service user. Rights Every service user has rights and these must be respected. However, it need to be understood that rights and responsibilities have to be balanced. Some tensions between what the service user perceives as their right and what we can offer as a part of the service might be encountered. Examples of rights: dignity,privacy, choice of diet, choice of dress, the chance to say own opinion, etc.
Unit 207 Implement Person Centred Approaches in Heath and Social Care Outcome 1 Understand person centred approaches for care and support What are person centred values? These are the standards of care working which put a person’s life choices first. They include: • promoting someone’s independence and individuality • respecting their privacy • preserving their dignity • working in partnership with them and respecting their right to make choices. Why is it important to work in ways that embed person centred values? When you work in a way that embeds person-centred values you are supporting the people you work with so that they can live the life that they choose to.
This is the ability to be you without pretence or façade. This is also called genuineness; it is the most important attribute in counselling according to Rogers, in this the counsellor is keen to allow the client to experience them as they really are, the therapist being authentic. Unconditional Positive Regard: (UPR) this is a non-judgemental, Respecting and accepting the other person as they are, Rogers believed that for people to grow and fulfil their potential it is important that they are valued as themselves. The counsellor has a genuine regard for the client, they may not approve of some of the client’s actions, but the therapist does approve of the client. The therapist needs an attitude of “I’ll accept you as you are.” The therapist must always maintain a positive attitude to the client at all times.
It enables individual's to receive the care and support they need, in a person centred way and to be part of deciding the care that they will receive. Person centred care is good practice and helps to ensure that the correct and agreed care and support is given to each individual. No individual is the same and by having a person centred approach, it ensures that everyone is not treated the same, but in a way that respects their needs, wishes, preferences and values. Working to a person centred approach is essential in dementia care. It will help to maintain the individual's self-identity, self-respect and dignity.
Ai Definition of person-centred values - The purpose of person-centred values is to ensure that the individual needing care is placed at the very centre of the decision making process about their life, the services and support they want and need. It is treating people as individuals, making sure they have their privacy, making sure they have access to their rights, treating people with dignity and respect and supporting people to be as independent as possible. Aii Why it is important social care workers work in a way that promotes person centred values - It is important to promote person centred values so that the individual will feel empowered and in control of their lives, be more confident about making decisions and so that they will feel valued and respected. Aiii Definition of the term ''consent'' in adult social care - Consent is the informed agreement to an action or decision. To establish consent would be to be given permission or approval on such actions or decisions.
Being able to identify one self and having a positive self image leads to good self esteem therefore leading to a healthy well being. We as carers it’s our responsibility to accept everyone is different and respect the identity of the person and to treat them as they wish to be treated .When the individual is happy with the way they see themselves as a carer it’s our duty to make sure we respect their self image and help maintain
If the person centered value are all being followed correctly then the clients should feel happy and content. Aiii) Consent means asking someone for there permission to do something e.g. would you like help with personal care. We need to be careful because the client might lack capacity in some areas, but not in others this is known as implied consent. You MUST always gain consent.
Active participation means that they are not just recipients of care but involved in it and supported to be as independent as possible. Again this is empowering and it encourages them to be more aware of potential dangers. Promoting choices and rights shows that carers respect individuals. It might mean acknowledged individuals rights to take risks, accepting choices that the carers might not make for themselves, checking that the individual has full information to make choices etc. It also means understanding your duty of care, maintaining confidentiality etc.
Additionally, developing self-awareness helps the client to rediscover meaning in life. Some clients will, however, need a more structured therapy than is typical in a humanistic person-centered approach. One of the strengths of using a humanistic/person-centered approach when working with clients is the warmth and caring of the relationship that (hopefully) develops between counsellor and client. The counsellors active listening and full emotional availability will provide them with a healing environment within which they can explore their emotional experiences safely and without judgment. Central to the therapist's role in client-centred therapy is respecting the clients values as well as maintaining a therapeutic nonjudgmental attitude.
I believe that listening to others and being able to put yourself in their shoes in order to understand what they might be feeling is very critical. It then becomes easier to help them manage those feelings and their experiences. It is also important to understand what is happening in that person's life, so it is good to be perceptive in order to notice patterns, dynamics, and other things that serve as clues for helping that person. I believe that I am very perceptive in my relationships with other people. In my opinion, it is also essential to have a sense of humility and I truly strive to always remain humble.
