I identified that I had to refocus discussions because the service user I was working with tended to digress. It proved to be a testing experience because I was not always sure exactly when to or how to draw in the conversation without causing offence to the service user or appearing to be in a rush. On reflection, I realized that being honest and upfront with the service user would have been a more professional way of dealing with the situation as stated by the GSCC Codes of Practice (2002, 2.1; 2.2) There was a need for empathic communication during the interview. Using appropriate reactions and facial expressions facilitate this. Given the importance of the housing issue to the service user, I had to be aware of how I spoke with him by using sensitive language and showing concern but also through trying to get the important issues across (Thompson, 2002).
Linda Potter A Personalised Induction Will Always Be More Effective Discuss This essay will explore the statement in the title that a personalised induction will always be more effective when used in the context of a Hypnotherapy session between Therapist and client. I will explore within this essay my own personal belief that personalising an induction is vitally important for the client. My reason for this belief is that I believe each person is unique and different in their own way. Therefore it is imperative to treat each person in an holistic or all round way. I will also discuss modalities, or the process that occurs when the brain receives information from our senses and how this represents itself internally.
Nathan Prince GS 1145 5-11-15 Unit 9 Assignment 1: Adding to My Self-Knowledge In taking the various personality tests to see where my strengths and weakness lay, some introspection on improvement has been able to take place. Many of my strengths seem to be based on leadership skills and keeping true to standards and traditions. These are good qualities to have but can also get in the way of outside opinions and accepting of new ideas. Finding a balance between the two spectrums will really help develop a more balanced person in my opinion. The test that examines more in depth of leadership styles produced a somewhat predicted outcome.
It is important to use the correct approach with a client because you need the client to fully engage in what you are saying. This is because if you are using the wrong approach they may find it difficult to concentrate. For example, the permissive approach uses a lot of imagery. If you have a client who is more suited to the Authoritarian approach they may struggle to embrace the imagery and therefore would not be able to engage fully with the
Rogers also believed that people are inherently good and creative. However, he thought that people could become destructive when a poor self concept (how one sees oneself in comparison to others) or external constraints override the valuing process. Rogers thought that for a client to experience therapeutic change, certain conditions had to be present within the relationship. These conditions he called “The Core Conditions”, which were empathy, congruence (genuineness) and unconditional positive regard (respect). When Rogers talked about empathy, he meant the therapist should continually try to understand the client from their point of view (enter into their world to get a sense of how it feels)
In exploring the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Immanuel Kant, there is a distinct parallelism running through their philosophical theories, the need to break free from immaturity or self-doubt in order to achieve enlightenment or self-reliance. The will to break free is an important function in developing self-trust. Self-consciousness is not simply a special kind of awareness each person possesses. Rather, the authority over the mind must be described as a kind of responsibility taken by the individual. To remain receptive to the intuitive process, an individual must trust in himself.
It has an influence on social care work, because we need to make sure that we are communicating well, and listening to the individual's wishes and preferences, and we need to remember not to dothings without discussing it with service user. Rights Every service user has rights and these must be respected. However, it need to be understood that rights and responsibilities have to be balanced. Some tensions between what the service user perceives as their right and what we can offer as a part of the service might be encountered. Examples of rights: dignity,privacy, choice of diet, choice of dress, the chance to say own opinion, etc.
Such ability is considered at the essence of all effective therapeutic relationships. Clearly if the therapist holds certain judgements for the client which for whatever reason cannot be put aside for the benefit of the client there is an immediate barrier to effective rapport building. At the very least the client may detect in some intangible way such a barrier and sense it as the therapists’ ‘dislike’ of them which would immediately hinder their susceptibility to relaxing and engaging honestly with the therapist. ‘If your belief system gets in the way of working with a particular client, then you must refer that client to someone else who would be comfortable with them’ Ericksonian Approaches A Comprehensive Manual Battino & South Crown House Publishing 1999. Building a positive regard with your client however, goes beyond your own personal beliefs.
The bottom line in this kind of assessment is to find out if the client would respond to more of an authoritarian approach or a gentle passive approach. There are other incites that are learned about the client here which help determine what kind of language it to be used wether that be colorful, flamboyant, descriptive, thought provoking and so on. Combinations of different choices of words and language are decided on the scoring system effectively tailoring the session for the individuals personality. I would agree that these steps are valuable in gaining the insite you need before venturing into a therapeutic session with a client. If PMR was attempted without any kind of background research on the client the outcome would most likely be unsuccessful or contrived.
