This includes using words, feedback, action, body language and gestures. With effective communication service users and family will enjoy the services provided. 1.3 Explain why it is important to observe an individual reactions when communicating with them All communication has an effect on the person that you are communicating with. Interactions a two way process, it is important to watch the effects so that any problems can be identified and dealt with. In order to be effective in care and supporting service users you have to be a good communicator whether this is through speaking, body language, facial expressions or gestures.
Humans naturally form social groups and identities. These groups may have common conscious or unconscious values or morals. With this individuals are exposed and may become vulnerable to influencing factors encouraging them to conform or adopt the group values and beliefs. In the helping profession, in order for the counsellor to support the client effectively the counsellor must show and feel acceptance regardless of the issue; even if it contradicts or disagrees with their morals and values. On occasion there are self-awareness unexplored problem areas that the counsellor encounters with a client.
This environment could be achieved when being in a relationship with a person who was very understanding, accepting and genuine. Risk taking can be part of a person centred approach as we would choose to use positive and informed risk taking which would involve building a positive view of the individual, and seeking to learn what a persons skills are and what people like about them. In person centred thinking we also explore the consequences of not taking the risk so that these may be balanced against the consequences of taking the risk. Using an individuals care plan contributes to working in a person centred way as this would be constructed by the client with the support of the care worker so that the client has full control, instead of the support plan being made by the care worker so the client feels as if they have no control of their recovery. Work in a person centred way In order to find out the history, preferences, wishes and needs of an individual I would refer to any previous files held with regards to that person, as well as discussing directly with the client what the preferenes etc.
It helps to keep one’s mind fresh and with new ideas on how to deal with issues which I face during my sessions with a client. Self-awareness develops over a period of time and with experience. With time one can learn strategies to help in the development of self awareness so that personal thoughts and experiences does not affect this. Knowledge that is gained through personal experience can sometimes be a barrier when working but if one is personally aware of this, it helps to remove any barrier. It also question one’s own personal values, awareness and beliefs.
. In an idea world everyone should do this but in reality it may prove difficult for some people to participate in, this is connected to the need to be seen to do the right thing, it may also feel that you are facing criticism. Reflective practice is not criticism it is being open and honest about your strengths and areas for further development. If you are open and honest with others it can encourage others to be open and honest with you. Reflective practice in a colleague-based environment can build a work place with trust and respect as in a group you can explore and take a conscious look at emotions,
Using modality is one way we have to personalise screeds although it is beneficial to use all the senses when trying to create a safe and comfortable space for a client. Modalities play a big part in personalising inductions as assessing the client as an individual helps decide which style will best suit that person. As you begin the process of learning how to hypnotise, you’ll begin to understand that there are two basic styles of hypnotic induction, and these are the Permissive style and the Authoritative style. The permissive style is the more usual style in therapeutic situations where the client needs to feel like they are in control of the situation before they can begin to relax. Attending a hypnosis session for the first time can be a scary thing because of all the mythology that a person probably has about hypnosis.
It can be used to express the person’s needs and helps to develop trust and establish good relationships between care givers, clients and their families. Communication is also needed for negotiation and to prevent and resolve any conflict and/or misunderstanding. This is shown in Tuckman’s stages of group interaction theory (forming, storming, norming performing). 1.3 Explain why it is important to observe an individual’s reactions when communicating with them An individual’s reactions to communication can not only be shown through what they communicate verbally in the tone, pitch and even silence, but in their non-verbal responses such as in body language and gestures, facial expressions, eye contact and through touch. Also their reactions can show their emotional responses to certain information, if it has been understood and also if there needs to be any adaptations to the way in which they communicate with others.
I found that using certain skills such as paraphrasing, reflecting feelings, summarising, challenging and asking open questions to explore options were required to form a therapeutic alliance between my client and me. Despite using these skills effectively, certain situations evoked anxiety during the session. Hovarth and Symonds (1994) believe teamwork between therapists and client is the key element of a therapeutic alliance. It provides a safe environment for clients to explore themselves, a relationship where the client’s key issues are explored,
In practice, the Hypnotherapist often (but not exclusively) requires the client to be in a relaxed state, frequently enlists the power of the client’s own imagination and may utilise a wide range of techniques from story telling, metaphor or symbolism (judged to be meaningful to the individual client) to the use of direct suggestions for beneficial change. Analytical techniques may also be employed in an attempt to uncover problems deemed to lie in a client’s past (referred to as the “there and then”) or therapy may concentrate more on a client’s current life and presenting problems (referred to as the “here and now”). It is generally considered helpful if the client is personally motivated to change (rather than relying solely on the therapist's efforts) although a belief in the possibility of beneficial change may be a sufficient starting point. Regardless of the techniques employed, perhaps the most important thing is that a client should expect to feel comfortable and at ease with their therapist. This is of particular importance in Hypnotherapy, in which the value of the treatment is greatly enhanced when there is confidence in the practitioner.
Often counseling is a process that enables a person sought out times of change or crisis, as well as psychotherapy, Counseling and psychotherapy is a process that enables a person to sort out issues and reach decisions affecting their life.
