Person-centered also means focusing on the best in someone, their strengths rather than their difficulties, responding to their feelings even when we do not understand their behaviour. 1.2 Outline the benefits of working with an individual with dementia in a person-centred manner The benefits are that the individual and their families will feel empowered and safe within the care being provided. If everyone within the care setting is carrying out a person centred approach and recording and passing on relevant information to other staff members everyone will become familiar with the individual and their requirements, which in turn will make them feel empowered too, this will go a long way to promoting good communication. 2.1 Describe the role that carers can have in the care and support of individuals with dementia Carers can support individuals with dementia by: Being understanding, caring, compassionate, and having patience .

Clients were pretty much instructed to do as they were told. People today for whatever reason, consider hypnosis for a variety of problems - weight loss ,confidence issues, addiction treatment etc... and will not accept this type of behavior from a therapist - they need and expect to be treated with respect.

People can live lives they always value if they can learn to do things for themselves and FBOs can support because they always there when needed. Self-reliance and self-sufficiency is important because people will always be able to do something about their situation even if the state does nothing as it always do. Burchardt (2013:15) states availability of hospitals owned by FBOs plays a huge role in supporting and ensuring better health services for people living with HIV and AIDS even when government hospitals run out of necessary facilities and medication.
When the therapist is able to show an empathetic understanding of what the client is experiencing, it helps the client have a better inner understanding as well. • Unconditional positive regard – Therapists must always maintain a positive and non-judgmental view of their clients. Rogers’ believed that conditional regard and support from others lead to some of the problems clients mostly experienced.
