Sometimes clients come to therapy were the counsellor will know little or nothing about the condition the client has. Research in this case may be a form of invaluable guidance to the counsellor in terms of providing a “default therapeutic stance” upon on the initial encounter. Although research in counselling can only tell us possibility of something happening, Cooper (2008) points out that this knowledge can be priceless when there is nothing else to refer to. Research in counselling can also be beneficial to the counsellor in terms of helping the counsellor to gain an understanding of therapy from the client’s perspective. Cooper (2008) points out that research gathered on the clients experience of counselling may challenge the “assumptions and expectations” that counsellors possess on
Central to the therapist's role in client-centred therapy is respecting the clients values as well as maintaining a therapeutic nonjudgmental attitude. This relationship can be even be more important, especially if the client doesn't have any family or friends. Because most clients seems to have lost a sense of value within themselves, having someone perceive them as a valuable person, capable of personal growth, should have an encouraging affect. The goals of the client-centered therapist are congruence, unconditional
Kolby Blaine Williams Ellafaye Jones Family and Marriage June 8, 2014 Family Life of Today vs. Family Life of the 50’s The average family of the 50’s is now considered the model family. Typically the father provided the income while the mother stayed home with the many children. Family life of today has greatly changed in almost every aspect over the last 64 years.

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.
This was introduced by the Labour party, who Lewis argues have taken on the idea of ‘social investment in children’ seriously and have realised family forms are changing. The Labour party have introduced a number of laws, attempting to strengthen the family unit. They were mainly concerned on helping the social and economic position of women, for example, marital rape was made illegal in 1991 by the Labour party. The rights of children have also been improved by the labour party due to the children’s act of 1989. New right thinkers however; believe that these laws undermine the traditional male dominance in families, but many believe these new policies for women and children strengthen the family rather than weaken it.
Second the therapist must convey unconditional positive regard for the client, this means that the therapist accepts everything the client say without passing judgment on the client.

The client must feel that the therapist understands him or her.
A personalised induction will always be more effective. Why a personalised induction is always more effective. When meeting a client for a personalised induction for the first time it is critical to build up a good rapport, because if you have rapport with your clients, they are more likely to trust you, listen to you and communicate openly with you, and when someone trusts you, you can ask more of them. A relationship of warmth, trust and mutual positive regard is also essential. As a hypnotherapist it is important to try and find the most effective way to communicate with your client so they can get the most benefit from the session in order to achieve effective results and this can be done quite easily by chatting, observation and general
As it was defined, social intelligence is “the ability to understand others, expressions and feelings easily, especially with others showing sensibility” (Hiremath & Chandrappa, 2013, p. 1). Leadership nowadays is an inevitable process which takes part in our lives. It occurs everywhere – at work, at school or university, among friends and relatives. Researchers confirm that leaders “should possess a strong foundation of personal values, principles, or ethics” (Baloglu, n.d., p. 2). Although social intelligence and leadership suppose only positive traits of character, there is no guaranty that these people will always avoid interpersonal challenge.
The two-parent nuclear family has become less prevalent, and alternative family forms have become more common. These include homosexual relationships, single-parent households, and adopting individuals. The nuclear family is also choosing to have fewer children then in the past.

Changes in the Institution of Family over the past 50 years. If there is one thing that I have learned in my twenty- two years of living it is that change is inevitable. Be it the weather, the climate, the economy, your hair color, even your spouse, change is consistently happening all around us. While our society strives to influence and manipulate these changes so that they are positive and better our culture and society, this is not always the case. The cause of social change is rooted deep within the major institutions that are the make up of our culture and society.
