Personal Reflection On Disrespectful Relationship

Improved Essays
The hardest thing about this session was that the client was a classmate. When she was sharing information about her family and her relationship I wanted her to feel that it was a safe environment, but I understood how hard that would be while knowing our class would view the session. She was open and honest and I was grateful for that but I feel that she had more to share about the situation. I felt that it was hard being 23 with overbearing parents but you can see her love for her parents as she talks. From the examples giving during the session I didn’t view any disrespectful behavior which tells me that she respects her parents.
I could tell that this situation was uncomfortable and I could relate to her situation so I had to remind myself

I was more worried about if I use certain techniques and if it was effective. Over the duration of the course I became more relax about supervision. I started to see it as a time of learning and a place where I can make mistakes. After reviewing everyone’s session analysis, I became familiar with the mistakes I created. Simple mistakes became a theme for the class. I realized I was not the only one trying to help the client solve their problems in one session. This may be due to the nature of the assignment or our eagerness to help. I quickly learned that some things need to be explored more …show more content…
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. The point of this session was to prepare my client to have a difficult conversation with her mother. I think this was achieved through the exploration of possible outcomes therefore I believe I met the standard for the performance standard D.1.
I was culturally responsive during the session with my client which exceeds the standard for the performance standard D.5. I noticed that her culture is defined by her father’s profession. He is a dairy farmer and that has a impact on her family dynamic. Being aware of the differences because of her family make up, allowed me to respect the difficulties she was going through with her

I had issues with the timing and being hyper aware of the time I had spend with the client. Knowing that I will get evaluated on the content recorded, and this created anxiety the was clear for all the parties involved in the session. Feedback from the class was helpful, and helped me to be at ease during the session.…

Before, I was about to leave, she handed me information about her beliefs and I accepted them because in order to make her comfortable with me, I wanted to start the relationship on easy terms.

    After being the facilitator the group went from the "transition to middle" phase to the "middle" phase. I felt a slight relief after speaking about what makes me stressed, as well as hearing solutions for my problems and hearing the possible solutions for the rest of the group. While it is good that they responded well to my facilitation, I need to push myself and work on managing the group better. I noticed I didn't interact a lot with the group so I need to make sure I interact with them more next time. The style I used was that of a democratic structure.…

    I just learned that I need to be more patient and give my group members some consideration that they are responsible college students who would complete their task on time. But, at the same time, I also believe that if I would not have reminded them on each turn maybe they would have forgotten about it. Anyways, I need to learn to trust my group members and not just myself. Overall, it was a good experience working in a team. I would just make a request to the teacher that, there should be peer review for this writing assignment as well because peer review actually helps in finding one’s own mistakes as the person is evaluating his or her peer’s written work.…

Furthermore, maintaining confidentiality is an essential factor to build trusting relationships with the clients. During the interview, confidentiality was well-informed to the client. By additionally mentioning the limitations of the confidentiality, I provided a safe interviewing environment and the client was more relieved to discuss her concerns.…
