Until emotions are dealt with… Speech and language Emotional issues
DiLollo & Naimeyer, 2014: ** • World Health Organization (WHO) has a health classification system: • International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF)
Haynes & Pindzola, 2012, pp. 45-46:** • There is an unfortunate tradition of “sweetness and light” in client counseling. A person has a problem. The person is sad and depressed, and we try to cheer that person up. Sometimes this degenerates into a debate, with the interviewer trying to persuade the person not to feel miserable. A person who feels depressed, anxious, and fearful does not want to count his or her blessings.
Haynes & Pindzola (2012; continued)** • That person wants you to feel miserable too, and to share and identify with him or her on the same level. Thus, you are given a basis for communication…start with where the person is…and agree that it is a sad state of affairs that would make anyone sad and depressed. Then, using this bond…you can assist in solving the problem. The main ingredient is empathy.
B. Counseling by:** • 1. Informing • 2. Persuading • 3. Listening and Valuing—help clients become congruent
II. OBTAINING INFORMATION** A. Case History Questionnaires Ideally, we can read these and think about clients before they come Saves time during the first interview; makes you seem prepared “I understand from this form that...can you tell me more about that?”
Some limitations—people may not fill out the form accurately because they don’t:
C. Interviews** 1. Introduction An interview is a serious conversation between two parties conducted for one or more important purposes. There is 1) a purpose, and 2) a plan of action, and 3) good communication
In addition…** Make recommendations specific rather than general E.g. “Have your child read a list of 10 /r/ words once a day” instead of “have your child practice at home” Say to the person “If you were to explain this to ****, what would you say?”
IV. TERMINATING THERAPY 1. 2.
3. Say something like: ** I’m glad we’ve been able to work together. I think that perhaps, at this time, due to ZYZ reason, continued therapy is not the best use of your time and money. I think you might be happier/better served by ------ person/facility.
In conclusion… *** • No matter how much we want to stay clinical and fact-based…. • It is important to address the emotional, human side for our clients and their families • Big Bang Theory—Sheldon and Penny at the Hospital
