Introduction Understanding the counseling session from the client’s perspective is a very important aspect in the development of a therapeutic relationship. A clinician must be an excellent listener, while being to pay attention to the client’s body language, affect and tone. The dynamics in the counseling session that is beneficial
A therapeutic relationship is a key component in the nursing profession. Without therapeutic relationships, the best possible care can never be provided. The foundation in which trust is built upon is created from the nurse’s ability to truly listen and respond appropriately. Listening creates the base in developing a strong, trusting relationship. Sometimes it is simply hearing what a patient says that makes all the difference, empowering them to open up and become more comfortable with the nurse (Hawkins-Walsh, 2000).
Therapeutic relationships and the three stages associated with relationships The whole reason for a therapeutic relationship is to facilitate a successful patient outcome. Each person is unique and has different needs.
They must be able to acknowledge their clients’ perspective and not let their client’s experience affect their own. Therapists must acquire a level of honesty, trust and authenticity in their relationship with their clients and must treat their clients with worth and dignity. These core conditions should be expertise that a therapist should possess as it set up an atmosphere of change and growth for the client (Shebib, 2014).
A STRUCTURED REFLECTION ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH A CLIENT In this essay, I am going to give a structured reflective account on the development of a therapeutic relationship with a client on one of my clinical placements as part of my training as a student nurse. I will be using a reflective model which explores the processes involved in developing and maintaining such relationships bearing in mind theoretical knowledge and how it applies to this clinical experience. Jasper (2003) describes reflective practice as one of the ways that professionals learn from experience in order to understand and develop their practice. As a trainee health care professional, I have learnt the importance of reflection in
Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Relationship The purpose of this paper is to describe the characteristics and roles of me as a counselor and the counselor’s disposition that I would like to bring as I start working in the field. The roles I will take as a counselor when
The main focus of this essay has to be on the three ‘core conditions’, as utilised by the counsellor to promote a positive movement in their client’s psychology. They are intended for maintaining a focus on the client’s personal growth, and detract from the therapist’s own outside world. The three core conditions are the professional apparatus or tool-kit of the therapist, and the use of each is a skill in itself but the combined forces of all three in an effective manner requires an abundance of skill or experience. These are, as have already been mentioned, congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy. They are separate skills but are intrinsically linked to each other. If used correctly, they can guide the client to a state of self-realisation, which could lead to the development of a healing process.
Everyone must have had a pet before, even if it was as small as a fish or as big as an elephant. We’ve all had that one pet, that we will forever remember. The loving relationship between a dog and a person is so unexplainable but very special in its own way. I’ve had a dog when I was born and it would always be there from my first time to talk to being with me my sophomore year. I had a Chinese Shar-Pei, whose name was Kane. He was the most precious pet to me and not one other pet can replace his 1,000 rolls or the two different colored eyes. Everyone thought he was ugly but he’s beautiful to me. The relationship we had was unique. In this relationship it contained us both knowing what we thought and getting in trouble together. The loving
Throughout recent years, the emphasis placed on the importance of the therapeutic relationship in counselling, coaching and mentoring has dramatically increased. The therapeutic relationship between practitioner and client during the treatment is one of trust, due to a reciprocal understanding, where practitioners and clients must actively work together to make it succeed (Ackerman and Hilsenroth, 2003). The relationship between the practitioner and client is important because it is crucial to analysing the client and their objectives, without it, the client may not feel comfortable enough to discuss themselves in the detail required for the practitioner to understand their behaviour. If there is a poor relationship from the beginning, then many clients will prematurely terminate their sessions (Horvath and Luborsky, 1993). Therefore, it is no surprise that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is a consistent predictor of intervention success (McCabe and Priebe, 2004), correlating even more highly than specialised therapies (Lambert and Barley, 2001). Overall, without a strong therapeutic relationship, the client may fail to engage in treatment, as they will unwilling to work with someone they have no rapport with.

Treating patients with dignity and respect and by encouraging participation really does contribute to safe and a higher quality of care. Acknowledging these factors and collaborating with the patients individualize their treatment, which prompts a better recovery. A therapeutic relationship with the patient ensures that the patient is treated with dignity and respect, also within the relationship by forming a bond with the patient encouraging participation and sharing information with the patient becomes a lot easier. These factors are also covered within patient centered care and in holistic care, they all work simultaneously with dignity and respect for the patient like a therapeutic relationship does.
By creating a therapeutic environment in which the client feel safe to be entirely honest and open about their thoughts and feelings we can enable the client to be
In 1979, Edward Bordin proposed that in a relationship where one seeks to make a change and another seeks to be an agent of that change, the alliance between the two is one of the keys, if not the key, to the process of change.2 Since that time, a great deal of empirical research has been conducted to identify the which elements of this relationship support therapeutic goals. Research exists that identifies both the therapist’s personal attributes and behaviors that contribute to a positive experience for the client.3 The ability to convey trust and confidence in the relationship are critical elements.3 The therapist must also be perceived as competent, interested and respectful. Making a warm connection with the client is key, as is conveying warmth, acceptance and support.3 Furthermore, if a patient believes that the
