As the client may not have ever spoken about what they are about to speak about to the counsellor before. So they are putting their whole trust, feelings and courage in telling the counsellor knowing that it will never be discussed out of the counselling session. Confidentiality should be discussed
I would explain that we can keep certain things confidential such as opinions and beliefs but if information effects their received care or personal wellbeing/health then I have a duty of care to act upon this but only on a ‘needs to know’ basis. I would however explain that I am not required to discuss it with her daughter so I would respect her wishes with regards to discussing it with family members. Bii) Describe the possible tensions that may arise between telling others of Hannah’s decision and keeping this information totally confidential. Hannah could lose trust and confidence with her support staff possibly causing Hannah to keep things to herself incase all staff discuss everything. Hannah could lose confidence and trust with just myself and not feel comfortable with me supporting her.
As Ellen begins to go deeper into this debate she explains why so many women change their name. The women she asked, who have changed their names, told Ellen they changed their names because “it's what's done.” Ellen feels that this tradition of changing your name was put into place because wives used to be treated as property, and needed their name to be changed to prove their commitment to their husband. Today women are no longer treated as property. Women are able to choose their husbands, whereas in the past the girl's parents usually would choose for a man her. Even though there is no need to have a name change, no need
Women are waiting longer and longer to have children and to start a family. Men generally want to start families after marriage, so I am sure that this is a way for women to hold off on having children. As far as infedelity goes, it does not matter on marriage or cohabitation, it depends on the person. It is a personal choice on whether or not you step outside of your committd relationshop. A marriage license, a simple piece of paper does not decipher who will or will not cheat.
However, when she learns the truth about he and his Elinor’s marriage, she is torn between conflicting loyalties and desires. She finally acknowledges, that she ‘was not Elinor, after all, but Anna.’ Anna elects to leave her old life and chooses a path, ‘... away from death and towards life, from birth to birth, from seed to blossom.’ She comes to terms with the fact that she does not want to be stereotyped as a ‘widow turned witch in the common mind.’ She decides not be constrained with the confines of male authority, but fashions her own destiny to accord with her core values, of loyalty, compassion and honesty. As a result, she is ultimately rewarded with acceptance and love in a new community, with a new family of her own. ‘Year of Wonders’ charts the journey of its protagonist Anna Frith, as she discovers her true identity and sense of belonging in the world. Throughout her journey, Anna is truly tested and experiences much suffering.
To fulfill ones ethical obligation at the expense of being shunned by others and the threat of being ostracized by neighbors and citizens throughout the community demonstrates a strong and confident sense of moral duty. Once Antigone made a promise to her brother that he would be buried, it then became her moral duty to follow through with that promise. Creon thought that he possessed the authority to determine who got buried and who went to the underworld, when clearly it is not at his discretion – it is the Gods who decide. The consequences of Antigone’s actions were not anything to look forward to, but she made the right decision when she carried out her promise to her brother and fulfilled her duty to the family by burying Polynices and making sure that he made
This means that nothing harmful to Sandy should be done.Fourthly, Mary needs to think about Sandy’s and her mother’s cultural and religious background. Suspected pregnancy, for example, may be forbidden by their religion. Fifthly, One of Mary’s obligations is to promote and maintain mutual trust in the practitioner-client relationship. Revealing Sandy’s secrets to Mrs. Wilson will jeopardize this relationship, which can exerts a detrimental influence on the procedure of treatment. Lastly, Mrs. Wilson’s primary concern probably is about her daughter’s well-being, as can be seen that she is really worried about her
Edna would do anything for her children but not in the same way a mother-woman would. Edna's view on the label of a mother-woman is known when she says, “I would give up the unessential; I would my money, I would give my life for my children; but I would give myself. I cant make it more clear; its only something that I am beginning to comprehend, which is revealing itself to me” (Chopin). When Edna says she would not give up herself for her children she means she is not willing to give up her integrity. Edna is still trying to find herself as a person and I don’t think she is willing to give up the opportunity to do that.
When counselling, it is very important not to put their own beliefs onto the client. It is imperative, to have an open mind as this will enable the counsellor to truly walk in the client’s shoes. If for example a counsellor has a strong religious believe system and they believe in no sex before marriage and they have a client who wants to discuss whether to have sex with her boyfriend or not. Under no circumstances should the counsellor interfere with the client trying to discover their own belief system. Also as a counsellor it is important to accept others and have the capacity and humility to change and have an awareness of ethical moral
Given that Susan did not necessarily plan to have a child at that stage in her life would not make it fair that it be put upon her. I strongly agree with Thomson’s view that the fact that she didn’t offer her body to have a child within her, she then has no obligation to keep the fetus alive. And for her to have an abortion may be a bit selfish and inconsiderate of the baby’s potential, but it would not be unjust for her to do so. In Tammy’s case, after having decided to keep the child, to decide to get an abortion so late into the pregnancy is in fact unjust. By doing so, she taking away the fetus’ life because it would be so inconvenient for her in the short run of her life.
