Career Counseling Skills and Interventions
As I viewed the counseling video this week with Dr. Warren, I noticed an abundance of basic counseling skills that she demonstrated during her time with her client, Erika. First, Dr. Warren was validating her stories by nodding and affirming with “um, humms”. This helps build the therapeutic relationship with Erika showing her that Dr. Warren is active listening. Secondly, Dr. Warren, used minimal encourages asking the client to “tell me more about…” which is allowing the client to home in on specific areas that the counselor feels may provide more information. Dr. Warren also does a good job of summarizing back to Erika what she explains. Summarizing also helps therapists build rapport by allowing the client to truly know that they are being heard. Erika and Dr. Warren uncover multiple gender and cultural influences that could affect her future career choices. This is in line with all of the ethical considerations we must take when we work with clients. Overall, I noticed that one of the main skills we learned in COSC 505 was reflection of feelings and meanings. I noticed that the reflection of feeling was missing until the end of the session. She did a large summary where Dr. Warren reflected meaning and feeling all in one. While this doesn’t necessarily follow the non-judgmental listening cycle, it did seem natural and like it fit the session.
