“A personalised induction will always be more effective”. Discuss. Base your answer on theoretical concepts and techniques presented in class. (1972 words) When undergoing hypnosis, an induction is required to ensure that the client is relaxed enough to experience the process fully. There are several types of inductions, varying in approach, length of time and tone.
When referring to modalities we are actually talking about our primary senses such as sight, hearing, feeling, smell and taste and are often classed as secondary senses. During hypnosis we are working with the subconscious mind so, in order to achieve a successful outcome, we need to assist the client into the most beneficial state possible. When we communicate with others there are several techniques that can be used to alter the language we use to suit the needs of the client, body language, tone, and volume and far more important than the words used. Words only make up 7% of our communication, tone and volume 38% and body language 55%, so it is very important to choose carefully the wording used in hypnotic scripts when trying to bring about change in the client. (Chrysalis notes) In
Such ability is considered at the essence of all effective therapeutic relationships. Clearly if the therapist holds certain judgements for the client which for whatever reason cannot be put aside for the benefit of the client there is an immediate barrier to effective rapport building. At the very least the client may detect in some intangible way such a barrier and sense it as the therapists’ ‘dislike’ of them which would immediately hinder their susceptibility to relaxing and engaging honestly with the therapist. ‘If your belief system gets in the way of working with a particular client, then you must refer that client to someone else who would be comfortable with them’ Ericksonian Approaches A Comprehensive Manual Battino & South Crown House Publishing 1999. Building a positive regard with your client however, goes beyond your own personal beliefs.
In addition to the words we speak, our body language, tone and volume are far more important actions we use rather than words alone. We may not even realise how much our body works whilst we are speaking at times. It has been stated that in fact only 7% of our words are used in communication, tone and volume make up 38% and body language is 55% (II). In hypnosis, we do not have the ability to use our body language as our clients have their eyes closed so it is important that the correct wording is used to strengthen our messages and suggestions. To suit a client’s preferences and personality in a personalised induction we may have to adjust the words we use, the tone, the volume or our pace in order for the desired effects to be reinforced.
I am now able to understand why I make the choices that affect my life, such as relationships and the career that I am pursuing. My personality type, ISFJ, also dictates every decision that I make regarding my children’s lives. Being an introvert means that I appreciate my own space and I need time to regroup after being in groups of people. According to the Meyers-Briggs test, “Introverts often prefer solitary activities or spending time with one or two others with whom they feel an affinity, and they often have a calming effect on those around them” (MBTI). All of the women on my mother’s side of the family exhibit this same trait, so it’s no wonder that I exhibit it as well.
In case there’s any safeguard issue, we should follow the safeguarding procedures which may involve breaching confidentiality but then again only if/ when necessary and only the people who need to have information will do so. * Children’s wishes and feelings: There will be times when it won’t be appropriate to observe a child, and during these times the best thing to do is to step aside and carry on with it on another opportunity. If a child is upset, if a child doesn’t want to be assessed for any reason, or basically if a child is not on a good mood, then the observation would be pointless anyway as it won’t be accurate, and we obviously aim for the welfare and wellbeing of children and we won’t want to be a negative factor by pushing a child or forcing a situation that is unsettling for them. * Ethnic, linguistic and cultural background/ disability or specific requirements: Obviously if we want to get an accurate idea of a child’s development we need to take into account the child as an individual, and every individual has a background and has their own specificities which
Within this assignment there will be strong views and contrasts of two theorists, being David Kolb and Donald Schon. Both Schon and Kolb are completely the same within thinking that reflective practice is the key to effective learning, but yet have two different ways around it. Formally both theories are approachable within workplace learning. Kolb is an American theorist who feels people learn best from their experiences, and from these experiences be it good or bad they reflect from this, calling this experimental learning, learning whilst we are doing. In reflection to this people within the workplace maybe learning and not yet know it.
Make sure you know which language a person is comfortable communicating with, a written translation or interpreter may be required especially in serious discussions or communication. You should always use a professional interpreter where possible as it is not always appropriate to use a friend or family member in private matters. Interpreters can be sought through Adult services or the police. You should try and learn essential words in their language or use flashcards to help. Non-verbal communication can help but be careful when using hand gestures as they may be the same in a lot of cultures but may be very offensive in another always research.
Some thoughts and behaviors may cause a person some discomfort and are suppressed into the unconscious as not to cause anxious feels when they are recalled to the conscious mind. We try not to dwell on thought that cause us anxiety or discomfort so we try to put unhealthy thoughts somewhere where we do not have to think about them. The conscious mind is where we are now. Awake, alert and communicating with others and we are aware of what we are doing and why. The two types of consciousness our text discusses; are the perceptual consciousness and the mental structure of our brain.
After reading the article I understand that content integration in the curriculum is only the first dimension of multicultural education. Students come to school with prejudices toward different groups and that is why all teachers, whether you teach math or social studies, should be sensitive to that matter and work towards reduce prejudice in their classrooms and school and create a more positive racial attitude among the students. It is in the hands of educators to encourage students to become more critical readers and thinkers, and help them understand the values that underline knowledge. Students need construct their own knowledge and think for themselves. Teachers need to help students understand the implicit cultural assumptions and perspectives of the discipline they’re teaching.
