Also, the goal is to help to understand which approach might suit best the client depending on their needs and specific situations.

Reasons for staying in such a relationship are usually all psychological (Battered Child/Spouse Syndrome).

Acute Stress Reaction, Acute Stress Disorder, and Parents of Children with Cancer Liberty University Abstract Research has shown that traumatic stress can be caused by many different factors and how people react to stress can differ from person to person. Factors such as spirituality, religion, personality, temperament, a strong support system and how a person has handled trauma in the past play a role in how a person copes with stress. What may be a minor stressor to one person could cause a stress reaction or acute stress disorder in another (Yeager & Roberts, 2003). Acute stress disorder can be caused by the threat of or perceived threat of death to oneself or to another person (Patino-Fernandez, Pai, Alderfer, Hwang, Reilly, & Kazak, 2008).

My Understanding of Counselling After undertaking my studies in counselling skills I have gained a basic understanding in the broad psychosocial arena. I have learned that counselling is defined as a set of psychological techniques intended to improve mental health, emotional or behavioural issues in individuals (who on a formal basis, would be called ‘clients’). These deleterious issues often make it hard for people to manage their lives and achieve their goals. Counselling (or the more professional term, Psychotherapy) is aimed at easing these problems, and attempts to solve them via the application of varying approaches - Merely being a listening ear for someone and their issues can often allow them to gain a clearer insight into the truth of their internal grievance, and so self-actualize a newfound clarity of awareness.Before counselling therapy can take place, the counsellor must deal with their own feelings as this will in turn help their ability to listen, to respond, and the enhance quality of attention given to the client. This attention will radiate reassurances for the client.
