Unit 1: Using counselling skills (K/502/6966) The learner will: 2. Know how to establish a helping relationship Reflect on classroom discussion and respond to the following statement. Describe the boundaries that need to be taken into account when starting a new helping relationship (2.1) When a practitioner first meets a new client, they should set the boundaries in the first session.

I planned that in my role in |9 | |the session would be to praise and encourage but to mainly take a back seat once V was reading so he could feel in charge of the reading | | |session. I also was going to benchmark V at this time to assess whether the level he was on was appropriate and to evaluate his progress. |18 | | |
Discuss it with colleagues - have a meeting on it. Chart the key issues - using a white board or flip-chart. This enables you to stand back from the situation. Everyone in the group can "see" what has been covered. Keep your objective in mind - ie the case study will be preparation for a class discussion, an assignment or the focus of a presentation you must make.
By doing this, I have also learnt what plagiarism is and how I must avoid it. All work must be referenced and quoted to credit the authors and researches. This has taught me to be honest and sincere in my work which I will maintain right through my degree. The first tasks that we did on this module were a group work where the class was split into two and we were given clues to find out
Talking quietly may help to create a calmer situation as the child may stop shouting to listen to what you are saying. I would use difusion and deflection techniques in an attempt to diffuse the situation. At all times I would do my best to ensure that the child, myself and others in the house or surrounding area were all safe. If a child or young person was lying on the floor and refusing to move, as long as they were not putting themselves or others at risk of any harm I would allow them to do so. I would try to engage the young person in conversation and gain an understanding of why they did not want to leave the floor and I may even lay on the floor with them myself so then I would be at the same level as them when I was speaking to them.
My old counselor and I are very good friends now. We started becoming friends while I was in counseling after I had told him that I wasn’t worthy enough to have friends. When I left counseling, he suggested that I not call him for a while, so I could continue to grow. He explained the code of ethics and said he wouldn’t be a good friend if he broke them. I will say in one way it hurt, but I also understood.
These boot camps, sometimes called ‘shock camps’, are an alternative to regular incarceration that focuses directly on rehabilitation and deterring any future conduct that could land a person back in jail and trouble. It uses a combination of military-style physical training along with psychotherapeutic counseling. In some areas, the inmate is given a choice of volunteering for the boot camp instead of incarceration. However, the inmate may voluntarily drop out of boot camp if they feel that it is too difficult at which point they are transferred to a regular incarceration
Work with the individual and others to agree learning or development activities that will suit the individual. 2.1 When support the individual to communicate their goals, needs and preferences about learning or development activities. I would organise a sit down meeting where we can discuss their need and the goals in life. We would talk about the thing they would like to learn and develop their own personal skills weather they are life skills of fun activities that want to take part in. you should also put in to place that the person will have monthly meeting to re-discuss their goal and needs
Am I a good communicator? In my own opinion I am a not a great or good communicator but I do alright with being heard and getting my point across. Whenever something is bothering me I am quick to go to the source of the problem to have the issue resolved, whether it is a person, place or thing. For example; when my kids are having an issue in school or home and they come to me about it. I allow them to talk to find out all the details before asking them questions and allowing them to respond.
I would also prepare for the interview by creating a list of questions and situational questions and a scoring mechanism to be used for all candidates (structured format) and I would have help a pre-meeting with the panel to discuss the format of how the interview would be structured. Each panelist would ask the questions from their area of expertise. I would make sure most questions were open ended and not a yes/no format. If the panel was not very experienced in interviewing, I would have given them a list of questions and topics that we were not allowed to
