Learning Goal: I’m working on a humanities discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
For this discussion, we consider how to counsel suffering clients. The class lectures, your textbooks, such as Neff & McMinn Chapter 1, all discuss the concept of suffering, lament, and factors guiding how we counsel those who are struggling with trauma and pain. In fact, a careful review of the materials in the Learn section indicates numerous concepts and principles that we could apply as we counsel those who are hurting.
Considering the numerous points that were made, make a list of at least 5 concepts (“questions to ask myself as I counsel those who are suffering. . . “) that you found particularly helpful, insightful, unique, or had not thought about before. What guidelines would you particularly emphasize as you counsel hurting people?
Then consider this client’s statement: Client: “Dr. Counselor, I have been coming to you now for six weeks. I am not sure that counseling is working. I don’t feel any better now than when we started talking. Why are you not helping to remove this pain that I am feeling?” If your client expects that you help to remove the suffering, how would you respond, based on what you learned from your study for the week?
Make sure to integrate appropriate concepts from the class sources, previous courses you may have taken, passages of Scripture that directly relate to the concept, or ethical considerations from the ACA Code of Ethics (2014) and cite correctly, per current APA format.
