01/27/2016 PSY 337— Introduction to Psychological Counseling Prof. Samantha Lee • Being in a professional counseling professional relationship can be friendly, but does not mean you are a friend. Although, traits do transfer. • To counsel: understand yourself first. Strengths/weaknesses? Build on strengths, work on weaknesses. • You will be face to face with your feelings towards your clients. Personal prejudices, attraction, repulsion, frustration, fear, etc. • Self doubt: can I help this person? • Transference & Countertransference: defined by Freud— form of projection. • Transference: client redirects feelings onto the therapist. • ex. feeling unresolved anger towards someone, client may direct their anger onto the therapist instead. (unconscious) • Countertransference: when therapist/counselor projects unresolved feelings onto their client/ patient. • Freud sees countertransference as a purely personal problem for the analyst, whom he believed he must recognize this countertransference in himself and master/cope with it. • It CAN exist without interfering for you— acknowledge it to yourself. • Before speaking to your client— ask for yourself, “is this question/statement designed to benefit my client?” • You may curious about them, but your curiosity should remain to yourself if it does not benefit your client/patient. • Reflective Practitioner: commitment to personal awareness of your automatic reactions by taking time to think. Consciously review and have a plan. • Building Rapport: how do you make someone comfortable in your first counseling session? • other techniques: 1. Introducing perspective without minimizing 2. Acknowledging without exacerbating • Leading questions: • ex. Alcohol related questions: Do you drink a lot? vs. How often/much? — (everyone’s interpretation of “a lot” differs. Be specific when needed) • another ex. “Did you have a crazy day?”— and they might have not, but they’ll begin to question themselves and convince themselves that they probably did. • Client responses to the process: uncooperative or hostile • consider: supervision, support with fellow learners, become a client, keep a journal • Perry’s Stages: How a helper develops • Dualistic or right/wrong: in how the counselor responds to client • Multiplistic: there are many possible responses • Relativistic: some responses are better than others • 3 options: 1. Question 2. Reflection 3. Confrontation challenging • ex. about relationships • consider your tone, delivery and body language when you either ask a question, reflect of confront. •
