[SOLVED] Tech and Counseling

You are a counselor who just received an outpatient client for therapy named Destiny Leighton. During your review of her background information and your first information-gathering session, you learn the following information: Destiny is a 41 year old African American female. She lives locally in the area in a part of town that is considered safe but very low SES. She has a part time job as a cashier at the local Food Lion, but is unhappy there and would prefer to find a full-time job. However, she doesn’t seek out other jobs as she states that she is afraid of being rejected. She has her GED but has never received any post-secondary education. Destiny has never been in a long-term relationship, though she indicates that she would like to. She tends to shy away from men because she states that she is afraid of getting hurt. This also tends to affect her relationships with friends as well. She tends to keep people at arm’s length. Destiny reports that she had an emotionally and physically abusive father while growing up. He died when she was ten, and she has a large amount of anger that she still carries towards him. Her mother remarried to a man who was a fairly detached step-father. She reports that they have a “fine” relationship, though fairly distant. Destiny states that she has a tumultuous relationship with her mother. They talk often, but Destiny often reports feeling like she needs to set more consistent boundaries with her mother. They will often have conversations that Destiny feels “don’t go her way”, and feels like she is still treated like a child even though she is an adult. She loves her mom but has a hard time forgiving her for remaining married to Destiny’s abusive father for so long, and for not stepping in to protect Destiny during this time. These interpersonal difficulties are what Destiny states she wants to work on in therapy. First, what additional information you want to know? If so, how might this information help you better understand the client in front of you and impact the goals for therapy? If there are things you want to know, answer them. For example, if a question you would want answered is whether he has the support of family in the area, then you can say how she responds to that question and base some of your additional therapy strategies on this response. Now, work your way through how you will work with Destiny. What errors of communication are you afraid might occur between you? What might you do to reduce the chances of these errors? What proximal/distal goals might you set for Destiny in counseling? Why? What do you see as being the biggest challenges for working with Destiny? How could you overcome or work with these challenges? What will you have to remember for yourself in order to continue to be an effective and helpful counselor for Destiny? And, of course, what techniques will you use with Destiny? How will you conceptualize him? Why do you believe these specific techniques will be effective? (this will likely be the longest portion of your paper)
