Active participation in developing life skills can help people to become independent as learning in a safe environment and knowing that there is support at hand just in case it is needed will give a person conﬁdence and reassurance, this is because we as people do sometimes make mistakes but this can be positive experience as long as it is handled properly and the person is given

Assessing My Self-Awareness Self awareness is an essential key to improve one’s personal and interpersonal functions. It includes the recognition of one’s own personality, knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses and what they like and dislike. Improving and developing our self awareness can help us manage stress and pressuring situations. Self disclosure is the key to the improvement of self awareness: without it, we cannot know ourselves. The support and feedback received during this process contributes to greater self awareness as long as it does not cross the sensitive line.
The purpose of person-centred approach during counselling is to increase ones self –esteem, whilst being open about new experiences allowing one to find out where they belong and to be contented with life. Where as the mindfulness approach is to gradually build a foundation of equanimity and clarity on a day-to-day basis. Both the person centred and mindfulness approaches to counselling are designed to help individuals who are suffering with problems such as fear and sadness. They both work around the concept of dealing with feelings whilst in the here and now instead of dwelling on them at a later date. Person-centred approach The person centred approach to counselling falls under the category of humanistic psychology, which was founded by American psychologist Abraham Maslow (1908 – 1970) (cited Dykes 2010).
Social Rejection Social interaction is an essential part of every person’s life. Many people know that when someone receives positive feedback they are likely to feel better about themselves than when they receive negative social feedback. Likewise, psychological research has shown that social acceptance versus social rejection differentially affect mood, self-esteem, behavior, and physiology (Crocker, Cornwell, & Major, 1993; Dickerson, Gruenewald, & Kemeny, 2004; Leary et al.,2003). Social acceptance is so central to society that the need to belong to some social group is recognized as an important social motive in humans. The experiment that was conducted by Roy Baumeister proves that social rejection has negative effects not only on physical but also mental health.
Introductory awareness of sensory loss (SS MU 2.1) Outcome 1 – Understand the factors that impact on an individual with sensory loss and steps that can be taken to overcome these 1.1 – Describe how a range of factors have a negative and positive impact on individuals with sensory loss There are many ways that can have a negative and positive impact on individuals with sensory loss. To carry out our day to day living requirements we rely on our sight and hearing senses. Being unable to communicate can prevent an individual from expressing themselves, making it impossible to gain the required needs and choices for everyday living requirements, if an individual cannot communicate they may be unable to receive the appropriate level of care that they need. There are various ways that hearing impaired people can communicate well such as sign language, lip reading, body language and pictures. Some methods rely on the cooperation of others e.g., learning to sign, facing individuals when speaking, speaking clearly, not treating them with respect that all individuals deserve regardless of their disability.
Describe how a range of factors have a negative and positive impact on individuals with sensory loss: A person with sensory loss will experience problems with receiving or interpreting information coming to them from one of their five senses which are Smell, Touch, Taste, Hearing and Sight. If someone experiences a loss of one of these senses then sometimes one of their other senses will compensate for the loss, there are many negative factors to a person with sensory loss and these can impact on the individual’s wellbeing and their everyday activities. By preparing the individual for any tests or choices that can be made rather than imposing them on the individual. An individual may feel that they are too old to adapt to new products such as hearing aids or glasses, if they have had the problem for years then they will think why bother to change things, and they may feel that they are not clever enough or too old to try new things like braille. By providing help and support for the individual and further deterioration may be minimised.
The first step is control: a sense of autonomy and an ability to influence what happens around you in your environment. Next step is cohesion: connecting or belonging with concerned others who care about you, your feelings and you experiences. Then there is communication: expressing positive self-discovery and growth with others through words and writings. Next challenge: using stressors events as opportunities for growth and development and seeing hardships as something to overcome or change in some way (however small). Commitment: remaining active in the pursuit of meaning.
There are times in life when we face difficulties maybe the loss of a loved one or a negative report by a doctor, having positive emotions can allow us to be optimistic about the situation and our future. It’s important that we have the ability to cope in certain situations and offset the negative emotion with positive emotions. If we can look at negative emotions as a downward spiral such as: fear, anger, stress, anxiety. Then look at positive emotions as an upward spiral such as: joy, love, happiness, and confidence we can then see how our positive emotions broadened our outlook on life, which leads to an overall better physical and mental health. The idea of negative emotions in our lives do change when we think of women and men.
