Encouragers are different verbal and nonverbal means used by the counselor to persuade the client to continue talking. Encouragers include head nods, openhanded gestures, phrases such as “uh-huh” and “I see”. Restating what the client has said by using two or more words exactly as they did are a helpful way to encourage them to elaborate their story. Paraphrasing what the client has just
His person-centered approach to psychotherapy entailed an unconditional acceptance between client and counselor. And with all this said I still find it phenomenal that a therapist can listen to an individual without interrupting or judging and still assists in improving the individual by making them a person. Rogers felt that the role of the counselor, instructor or any other individual who was responsible for the developing personal maturity in another, was to help that person become fully-functional. He always started off with the client on the same level. The therapist does this by using techniques that keep the client active in conversation without making them feel as though they have been questioned.
The theoretical orientation that is a foundation for this writer is the Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. This writer will discuss Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy as her primary approach in terms of techniques, goals, therapist/client relationships and concepts. Other concepts, such as Carl Roger’s Person Centered Therapy will be blended into this writer’s orientation. This writer recognizes client’s are more likely to cooperate with therapy interventions if they feel they are in control of their direction of treatment and the therapist is genuinely interesting in their
Dina Jones 02/15/2014 When it comes to the postmodern therapy this focuses on the critical analysis and common beliefs and checking on the value in a person’s life. The therapist has questions in the mental health. When it comes to a relationship between their therapist and a patient it is more of collaborative than authoritative and the change come through and opens the dialogue. There are three main types of postmodern therapy and these are: Narrative Therapy, solution-focused Therapy, and collaborative language systems and they are all have to do with solving problems, going through a person’s thoughts and behaviors and the short-term approach. When it comes to the postmodern therapy they use the training videotapes and writing of three prominent postmodern therapists: Michael White, Bill O'Hanlon, and Harlene Anderson.
Evaluate the claim that Person-Centred Therapy offers the therapist all that he/she will need to treat clients. When offering therapy to clients, there are a number of different models of practise that a therapist can adopt. The way in which a therapist chooses to proceed may be dependent upon their own skills and beliefs, and also the needs of the client that they are working with. Person Centred therapy is an approach developed over a number of years by Carl Rogers. In this technique, the therapist creates a comfortable, non-judgmental environment by demonstrating congruence, empathy, and unconditional positive regard toward their patients while using a non-directive approach.
In the mini-lecture by Dr. Sue he states, “MCT can be defined as both a helping role and process that uses modalities and defines goals, consistent with the life experiences and cultural values of clients.” He also states that MCT involves broadening the role that counselors plays and therefore need to play multiple roles that involve not only the traditional role but systems intervention as well. It is important to avoid a blind application of techniques to all situations and all populations. Another important role is building a therapeutic alliance using empathy, positive regard, respect, warmth and genuineness, self-disclosure, management of counter transference and agreement on goals between the counselor and client (Sue & Sue, 2013) What is the significance of a client's social and cultural context within MCT? Multicultural therapy balances the individualism approach with the collective approach and acknowledges families, significant others, communities and cultures (Sue & Sue, 2013). In MCT the client’s social and cultural background is of importance.
Multicultural Counseling I. Professional counseling is a process during which the counselor and client develop an effective relationship, one that enables the client to work through difficulties. Being in the counseling field I think my working style of counseling is collaborative. I would like to empower clients to explore their inner wisdom, strengths and passions. It is my desire to support clients' efforts to gain insight and identify solutions for their areas of concern and believe that most of the answers lie within.
1. In what ways did the counselor's use of ADLER'S INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOLOGY demonstrate the listening and communication skills described by Nystul and Waldo? How might the counselors' listening and communication skills be improved? Please offer EXAMPLES from the video of both strengths and areas for improvement. Dr. Carlson used Adler’s individual psychology during his session by asking the client about her and how was everything in her life was.
Rogers introduced this type of therapy in the 1940’s and 1950’s, and is generally used by psychotherapists around the world due to its humanistic approach towards treating the patient. Rogers attempted to assert that each individual’s personal familiarity is is essentially the foundation and standard for their private living and remedial effects, and identified by himself 6 conditions that he believed could bring forth fundamental character changes in clients: affiliations, susceptibility to uneasiness and paranoia, authenticity of their own character, client's own perception of the therapist's character’s authenticity, the therapist themselves holding unreserved optimistic regard for the client, and precise compassion for the clients situation. Person centred therapy differs from others as there is a definite disregard for the surrounding environment in which clients are treated through other therapies. Behavioural therapies in particular are regarded as somewhat
In this assignment, I will compare and contrast the usefulness of Person-Centred Approach and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. (A) The main features of the Person-Centred Approach PCA is an approach in which the relationship between the client and the counsellor is used to assist in the development of the client. Roger’s outlined the relationship qualities that remain the hallmark of the PCA as the ‘core conditions’ (Brammer and MacDonald 2003). The purpose of PCA is therefore to help the client regain an awareness of the ‘organismic self’ (i.e. what the person feels and the idea that the client has of what he or she should be) and learn to accept and value their inner processes.
