2.2-2.3 Certain attitudes towards a person with dementia can affect the way in which they are cared for. Some carers may not feel they can approach the person because the assume they are violent. If a person gets violent it is due to frustration and not being able to express themselves. It helps if you know how to approach the person so they don't get agitated. You should always try to form positive relationships with clients.
The client may ask to be referred themselves, or may be moving to a new area. The client may need specialist health due to a mental health condition they may need some additional support that you cannot offer them. The client may be taking part in illegal activity that may be harmful to themselves or others, and as stated in the opening to a session you have to take these issues further. There could be a lack of process and another counselor or helping service may be more useful. As a counselor you may have issues with what the client is sharing as it may trigger personal issues, which are outside of your comfort zone.
Communicating can also build bonds and relationships between people, for example if a service user is feeling lonely and they're trying to communicate with you and you don't show any interest or patience they become resentful and will refrain from communicating with you in the future which could effect your knowledge of their needs and feelings. However, taking time to communicate and listen to your service users reassures them that you are there to listen and respond to any needs. Reassurance can also be given if a service user is feeling low or wants questions answering and it also allows people to share experiences. 1.2 Explain how communication affects relationships in the work setting. Communication affects relationships at work as it helps to build trust whether it be between colleagues, service users, their families or other professionals involved.
Barriers to Critical Thinking One of the major barriers that influence my ability to be a critical thinker is the many perceptual barriers to clear thinking. Among these barriers there are egotism, assumptions, and defensiveness (Elder, & Paul, 2006). Egotism is a problem because it is difficult to be honest about one’s flaws or errors in thought. Egotism is most likely a form of self-protection that is often taken too far. For myself, I find that I am often unwilling to change my mind on a topic in certain situations.
Repeated failures in one’s past can sometimes lead to a person to give up any expectations that he can have any influence over his future. There is a sense of futility that no matter what actions a person takes he is too incompetent to change the outcome. This learned helplessness can become pervasive and perpetuate the belief that there is no escape from a bad situation no matter what actions are taken. There may be rationalization that any change will be negative and the situation will be worse than before or that he does not deserve anything better. Once this person has established a certain acceptance of a situation, it becomes difficult for them to change or deviate from this path.
Talking to someone about what’s going on can help you make sense of your feelings because chances are your feeling as if this is all your fault your feeling lonely and helpless talking to someone will help you see that none of what your feeling is true. Verbalizing your emotions will help you gain confidence and give you courage to address your significant other about the situation. Confronting your significant other about what happened is essential, address your significant other for your own reasons, not because there’s certain reaction your expecting No amount of planning can predict the reaction your abuser/significant other will have. When confronting this person you have to ensure you’re in a safe environment. Never met with this person in a secluded area where there are no people around.
Everything happens after that. Sometimes people are scare to say what they really want to say because of how the other person may feel. I believe that communication is very important in a relationship. You cannot have a successful relationship if you do not
Some negative outcomes of working in partnership may be: i) Staff can discuss about the matter of service users with anyone who is their partner. But the clients may not know whom are they discussing with about their problems. This is in violation of the service user’s privacy. ii) Misunderstanding can occur at any time, causing the client to feel insecure. iii) Service users may be left waiting for long periods sometimes and/or may face difficulty getting service should either of the partner organizations be unable to respond for any reason.
People who have the self-limiting beliefs and thoughts about themselves are trapped in a negative self-image and are preventing them to be who they are. Often they feel inhibited by their own perception of how others see them, such as feeling unworthy or undesirable and send themselves the message like “Something is wrong with me.” This thought continues to say: • I’m not good enough./smart enough./talented enough. • I don't think I can do it. • I don't deserve it. • It might all go wrong.
A Players are irritated with those people whom they see as less talented. They don’t want to work with them and find ways to get rid of their presence. These complicated A Players are really difficult to cope with. You just need to simply recognize their hidden vulnerabilities, for you to apply some tactics to help them overcome their frustrations. First, “let them triumph”;
