This approach allows for a close relationship, which will foster trust, and will ensure that there is mutual understanding of the problem, and the best interventions in order to solve the problem (Henonin, 2010). This approach allows for the client to practice self-autonomy, by giving the client power over what interventions they believe will comprehensively solve the problem that is evident in their life (Henonin, 2010). Furthermore, the client and the social worker may have different understandings of the problem or circumstances that are taking place. Therefore, the first steps of the problem solving approach are crucial in fostering mutual understanding, in order to ensure that both the social worker and the client are on the same page before a proper intervention can be formulated (Henonin, 2010). Additionally, it is incredibly important that throughout the intervention, the social worker garners feedback, and performs “check-ups” with the client in order to ensure that the intervention is having a positive impact (Henonin, 2010). Performing routine check ups, ensures that interventions are working properly, and the client’s voice remains heard. Furthermore, routine check ups ensure that the social worker completely understands the problem at hand, and can be privy to any new information regarding the circumstances of the

All counselors have the ability to bring new perspectives and research into the field. It is an expectation that new counselors will continue to improve mental health counseling. “Some emergent theories were developed for specific purposes. For example, motiva-tional interviewing is an approach designed to work with individuals struggling with chem-ical dependency. Brief and solution- focused counseling provides a framework for working in a time- limited, perhaps managed care, counseling environment” (Erford, 2010). I would first review the data behind a new theory. Careful review of a theory would allow me to understand its purpose in my practice. I would also ensure that the new theory would benefit my client without creating further distress in his or her life. My goal would be to keep my client informed and involved in their therapy. While new theories are important a counselor has to closely evaluate the effectiveness of that theory.

It is critical to identify the client’s perception of the event in order to help them. This is what will tell you what the problem at hand truly is. By doing so, the counselor can help the client identify the problem and overcome their issues. I like to use the Cognitive Tree as a metaphor rather than as a guideline of sorts. You need to get to the root of the problem in order to determine how to fix it. If your roots are healthy, your branches will blossom. But if your roots are damaged and aren’t dealt with in a constructive and healthy manner, your branches will wither and perish.
There are 4 aspects of motivational interviewing (MI) spirts that practitioners need to consider when working with clients, these aspects include partnership, acceptance, compassion, and evocation. Partnership has to do with the practitioner functioning as the partner for the client and working with the client’s own knowledge to help them. Acceptance has to do with communicating absolute worth, accurate empathy, affirmation, and autonomy support. Compassion is the aspect of sincerely caring about the suffering of your clients and promoting the welfare of clients, giving priority to their needs. Lastly, evocation involves drawing out the client’s personal motivation for changing (Clifford, Curtis, 2015) Out of all 4 aspects of MI spirts, the

Clarification and agreement around the client’s goals represents a starting point for collaborative exploration of multiple ways in which these goals can be attained. Goal setting offers a platform for both therapist and client to resolve any differences through collaborative dialogue which reflects their mutual intentions and understandings (Clark, 1996) Goals can be defined as immediate, those which help to achieve longer term goals, goals to be worked on in therapy and long term or life goals (Hanley, Sefi & Ersahin, 2016) A client may formulate life goals including non-specific, contradictory, avoidant, unattainable or no life goals, which can then be broken down into therapeutic goals and the therapist will have her own goals as well
