1 Understand the process of a counselling skills session. 1.1 Identify three stages in the counselling skills session. See appendix 1 for table. For Egan stage one of the helping model is the Exploration of the clients situation. The main purpose of stage one is to build a non-threatening counselling relationship, help the client explore their situation and then be able to focus on chose issues.
3. Write a short ‘Summary’: Summarize the text by stating the writer’s purpose and the main ideas, only. (Remember, you must also paraphrase when you are summarizing to AVOID PLAGIARISM). 4. Write an ‘Analysis’: Analyze the TECHNIQUES used by the author (‘Language’, ‘Purpose’, ‘Audience’, ‘Mode of Development', etc).
Professional Discussion Professional discussion is a single, or series of structured, planned and in depth discussions recorded by the assessor. It is a two way conversation with the learner as opposed to a question and answer session. A professional discussion provides an opportunity for an assessor to gather further information regarding a learner’s understanding and knowledge. The assessor must consider existing evidence before planning for the discussion and agree the plan and process in advance with the learner. The assessor would ensure that the use of a professional discussion, as an assessment tool, reflects the unit aims and objectives and ensures that the methods used for evidence are approved by the centre and awarding body.
My practice partner\client was issued a client\interviewee consent form. Within the session I was asked to demonstrate the following, establish and maintain report with my client, allow my client to speak freely and tell his story by listening and using appropriate questions when nessasery. Respond in a respectful manner towards my client, provide the correct judgment on when and how to explore options, display appropriate body language to show that I have both non-verbal and verbal skills as a counsellor, show ability to apply open and closed question when needed in conjunction with other skills appropriate to my client’s situation. This essay will provide a brief summary of the session and give an accurate reflection based on how well the above skills were applied by myself and the impact they had on my client. By presenting verbitamin examples of skills used as evidence I will discuss the effects of the skills in question and discuss how well they may or may not have been executed.
That day when the women came to speak, and class was over, I put myself in her shoes see what she went thru; it is hard to try to talk over like 30 kids in one room. I felted so bad I wanted to apologize to the woman but I was too late. I was paying attention; I wanted to tell her that I am sorry for how my classmates acted with no self-control. That we mad the LPP program have a bad name. I bet now she does not want to come back because of our behavior, and the way we acted like
1.1 Explain what is meant by reflective practice Reflection is a process that one replays an experience over in their mind and they actively and carefully evaluate it. It is suggested that reflection involves three aspects; returning to the experience in your mind, connecting to feelings (helpful ones to be used, unhelpful to be removed or contained) and evaluating and re-examining through the eyes of knowledge and desired goals. Edgar Schon who studied and wrote much on reflection described two main ways of reflecting, one whilst in action and one whilst after the event has occurred. Reflection in action allows the practitioner to evaluate and change what he/she is doing whilst they are doing it, highly effective but many do not possess the skill to do this. Reflection on action is as described above where one contemplates in retrospect.
She was upset because this fight shouldn’t have happened like this. Miss Hilly said she was only expressing herself that she had heard enough but Mister Jeffrey over reacted about this whole situation and now she may be losing him. I tried to keep Miss Hilly calm and tell her everything was going to be ok. After a half an hour of talking to Miss Hilly, I went down stairs to the
(p.16) My primary aim was to learn but I also achieved a measure of resolve with my problem. My feelings before, during and after the session are analysed and discussed, the session is summarised, the key skills used by Annie and their impact on me are identified and challenges for the counsellor and the client are identified with suggestions for strategies to best manage these challenges. Verbatim dialogue from the session is provided throughout the essay as examples and, finally, the overall experience is considered I had
The Other Side of the Rainbow Sophie Johnson is the neighborhood’s head mom and chief bitch. My entire middle school staff is in the habit of disappearing whenever she has an appointment and I even had a secretary once who called in sick on the days of Sophie’s scheduled visits. When I fired her she unrepentantly informed me that her job description didn’t include sucking up to a know-it-all, ex-Homecoming Queen with a Napoleon complex. Since I couldn’t argue with her logic, I wrote her a glowing recommendation but had to let her go just the same. Sophie has a furious tick in her left eye when she gets angry that slows down or speeds up to match the level of her outrage – it’s a dead giveaway.
I offered my client empathy, understanding and respect. Used open ended questions, actively listened and gently challenged my client when appropriate, remaining aware of boundaries. (2013, BACP) I recorded information to use in supervision, how one response led to another, the nonverbal communication used by my client and my own thoughts as the session proceeded. Supervision was able to give me space to look at my work I had supervision which allowed me to reflect on relating to my client and to gain insights from the perspective of another therapist. (Jacobs, 1998)Supervision offered me three main functions.
