With this method, counselors ask the client to assess their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors when not in session (Sharf, 2012, p. 382). Clients note things that happen and then bring it into sessions. I believe that self-monitoring is a very useful tool that allows the client to practice helpful techniques and even monitor their own progress. There is also the technique of guided discovery.…

    As mentioned in class, the ability to pick up on verbal and nonverbal cues can help a healthcare professional confirm whether or not the patient’s cues are congruent with their mental/ physical state. Nurse Jackie must have picked up on Alyssa’s cues and decided initiate a relationship with both Alyssa and Lauren by lightly joking with them and complimenting Lauren’s gauze work.

The combination lead Alyssa to feel cared for and help take a step towards…

    But, it seemed like my nurse always knew what to do. She would tell the clients no when they cursed and tell them to use different words.

    because I employed a technique with little inconsistency. During the session I asked question with intentionality and anticipated an outcome. When asking the client about her goals, techniques and solutions I did this to gather information about her wants and strengths. I understood that some information may be difficult for the client to share during the early stages of the client- counselor relationship. I believe I did a good job at initiating and structuring the relationship by being welcoming and attentive.…

Following, her decisions, thus made her mother very skeptical about if she got raped because nothing seems to change with her behavior. Besides Marie is doing what she did before she got raped when her mother questioned her about getting the same bed spread this made Marie anger. According to studies “Victims of acquaintance rape often do not report their ordeal to the authorities.
