Open in a separate window The exception to this pattern was an year-old woman with a MMSE score of 6, but considerable communicative ability who actively rejected the nurse at weeks 1, 8, and In week 16, she continued to express negativity and distrust.
I have found that I have needed to be aware of myself within triads, in particular when I have had a client who has detached from the emotion of their story; I have found that, as I am receptive to feeling, it has come at me with full force and as yet I have been unable to let that energy pass through me.
This is something I have taken to my therapist to process, and to find methods with which to take care of myself when this occurs. To summarise, the Codes of Ethics aim is to protect the potentially vulnerable client from being exploited by their practitioner, in addition to highlighting the impact of this work on the counsellor and how continued supervision and personal therapy will help aid the nature of this work.
I have understood that when the points above are not adhered to there are major consequences; exploitation will result in the inability to practice and that this would be formally published within a number of publications.
In terms of care of the practitioner, when these guidelines are not followed, it seems that often those therapists end up with mental unrest of their own and in some cases suicide.
The Code is in place to protect both parties and in addition to personal qualities of the practitioner will allow for an effective and supportive therapeutic relationship. When thinking about what it is to have successful interpersonal skills, in any context, the ability to build rapport with a relative stranger is a life lesson.
Encouraging your client to talk may seem simple, but to have the right setting and relationship for therapeutic enlightenment is far from straightforward. It is important to understand when and how to use verbals and non-verbals, and most importantly when silence is key.
This has been the case a number of times within triads and I find myself becoming more intuitive to it. Understanding this and how best to achieve it has been our starting block; this skill set has developed and changed throughout my triads and has been reflected upon within my learning journal.
This is a skill, which is embodied in Person-centred theory.
The Person-Centred approach is all about the therapeutic relationship and its importance above all else. Becoming a person p Meaning that the practitioner need only embody certain conditions, to promote growth and actualisation within their client. It allows us to be alongside the client as they process and understand their thoughts and feelings; Empathy is in itself therapeutic.
Last of the core conditions is Congruence, is a state of being where outward responses to the client are in line with inner feelings and sensations.
To be truly congruent and for the client to be receptive is no mean feat; one must embody a sense of self-awareness, acceptance and honesty about the limits of ones own ability.
Congruence and self-awareness are ever evolving; they will be contested, altered and better understood through experience. Equipped with an understanding of the core conditions I went into my first triad trying to harness all that I had learnt. I was aware of my frustration with myself and in quick succession my desire to suppress it, leading me to wonder about my level of congruence and fleetingly, my own unconditional self-regard.
Interestingly, both the observer and the client felt that my success at building rapport had prevented my questions from being received uncomfortably. On reflection my frustration had been because I had wanted to learn how to find and then explore the presented emotion.
Something to focus on, in future triads. As with UPR this is not conditional of how you behave, but instead of what you are.
With exception of the severely brain-damaged we are all responsible for the decisions we make and must live with the consequences.
Whereas the treatment contract will be about goal orientation and is more malleable depending on the progress made, it will be referred to within session and requires both the client and the counselor to make an effort towards change.
Questions have their place in TA, however although there is an end goal each meeting will still be an exploration of self rather than surface level behavioral changes. With this in mind I took my role as counselor with a little more ease than I had done previously, I was still aware that the situation itself raised my anxiety.
I spent the first little while really trying to tune in to my client, mirroring body language, hearing what was said and moreover really feeling the words of the client come at me, before summarizing and clarifying what I had heard. My summary was greeted with relief from the client that I had understood and they had felt listened to; I was still trying to maintain my composure.
Unfortunately, once I had the ease in rapport with my client, I began once again to try and problem solve; whilst there is more emphasis on change in TA, being overtly suggestive and solutions focused was still not the aim of the triad. It is the for the counsellor to work with this and help the client become familiar with the therapeutic process and the shared responsibility of this relationship.
When both parties have understood and are truly committed and understood by one another it will encourage growth and change. My learning and experiences to date, has brought the value of the Therapeutic relationship to the forefront of my mind as a constant.
It is something that I want to promote and grow into, in my own practice over the coming months and years. Having demonstrated an understanding of the theories, as well my reflections of my own experiences in the practice triads; I hope to concentrate on being congruent and organic in my practice, to allow the clients emotions to appear, be processed and then subside, to make space for a tighter technical understanding in supervision.
In time the combination of these three schools of thought will allow me to grow into an effective integrative counsellor.
