The counselors should also check their counter transference responses and not to force the clients to quit societal interactions; whilst it can be personally disturbing when a client opts to remain in a violent relationship, the counselor must endorse the decision to stay or quit the association. The major worry for the counselors working with the clients in the societal environment should be promotion of their safety. The counselors can be useful in authorizing the clients to deliberately plan how they want to proceed in managing such relationships. The clients can establish how they will choose to deal with the risks of violence. One of the most useful methods the counselors can apply in supporting client safety is a detailed safety plan-a concrete plan that can assist in preparing clients to deal successfully with the family violence.

The Counseling Profession A counselor is defined as a person trained to give guidance on personal, social, or psychological problems. Professional counselors help to identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional or social interruptions. Counseling also improves communication, strengthens self-esteem, and promotes behavior change in relations to mental health. Counseling enables us to appreciate how we are in healthy relationships and safe environments due to some of the bad things others experience. Counseling helps clients understand and clarify their views on life and learn to reach their goals through making wise choices.
Chapter one Purpose The purpose of this project is to introduce a brochure, based on current evidence, that can help rape victims find a healthy approach to recovery. It is important to provide victims with support, contact numbers, counselors and self help strategies in case they do not follow up with a medical professional. If victims refuse to talk it is important to teach them about therapeutic poetry and journaling which are optimal ways of expressing emotions. Holding in feelings over time can lead to self directed violence, nightmares, trust issues, and changes in relationships. Victims are at risk for re-victimization by society and the justice system.
It is the psychiatrist’s job to ensure the patient can maintain a healthy attitude and continue to provide for themselves. A Psychiatrist may choose to specialize in many sub classes of mental health including children and adolescents, geriatric psychiatry, addiction, and pain management. While requiring an intense and difficult education, the occupation in psychiatry is one that offers meaningful, fulfilling work and a high-end salary. Psychiatrists provide treatment to patients is different than that of most other physicians. They must not only diagnose and treat their patients medically, but must also make sure that the patient is not a threat to themselves or anyone else.
In some cases, they can also prevent disorders. Psychiatrists counsel patients. Some other job duties include analyzing patient data to diagnose disorders, as well as prescribing medications to treat patient disorders. They design care plans to help the patients overcome disorders and inform the patients family about the treatments (Psychiatrists, n.d.). Psychiatry requires a lot of schooling.
Often times, people find it hard to fully recognize the trauma that has gone on in their life causing a greater resistance to impact of the trauma. According to Lamothe (2001) the therapy process that is often provided to the victims of severe trauma involves evaluating, providing affirmation. In providing this to victims of trauma it gives them a secure environment to be able to express themselves to the counselors more freely. They need to know that what they feel is valid and that feelings such as restfulness, anger, hopelessness, guilt; should not engulf their life after a disaster has occurred.
When there is a problem with a patient the nursing staff needs to try and resolve it to make all parties satisfied. When trying to solve a problem, keep in mind about the core attribute safeguarding patients autonomy. In this core attribute, it involves the patient wanting to be involved in their health care plan, as well as make their own decisions as long as they are competent. (Bu & Jezewski, 2006) Once the problem is identified the nursing staff along with the patient, need to form a plan or possible goals that will help solve the problem.

One must have attending behaviors this includes eye contact, attentive listening, body posture, overall empathy and warmth. In order to be a successful counselor when using the ABC model, it is important to have knowledge of cultural sensitivity (Kanel, 2007). According to Kanel crisis workers must remember that the attending behavior of different cultural and ethnic groups may vary in style, and as a clinician one may need to adapt when working with certain cultures (Kanel, 2007). Another important skill a clinician must possess is the skill ask questions properly without seeming judgmental. Most often in this model, it is important to use open ended questions in order to learn more information about the precipitating event.
Even with the given safety and security procedures for contraband removal, contraband continues to still be a problem. Several interventions have been used like acknowledgement forms for staff to sign related to the contraband policy, safety checks done on first and second shift, removal of contraband upon admission and signature of two staff members, and educating patients and sometimes family on what is permissible for the patient to have. This has helped to reduce contraband some but something needs to be done to reduce it more. In this paper, we will discuss the theory of shared leadership. Shared leadership is a good theory to use in health care because it” enables nurses exercise control over decisions that affected their practice” (Barden, Quinn, Donahue, & Fitzpatrick, 2011, p. 293).
