Example text

As she puts it; Often teenagers do not experience their symptoms as painful. When their self-injurious or maladaptive behaviors are egosyntonic, rather than ego-dystonic, they do not experience anguish or anxiety. Rather the adults (namely, parents and teachers) suffer and commonly forcibly refer the adolescent for therapy. (Marks Mishne, 1986, p. 328) Children and young people may potentially feel some hostility toward the therapist whom they perceive will be on the side of the parent who disapproves of their behaviour and wants to “take it away” from them.

It is only after the counsellor has been seeing Maisie for several weeks that Karen mentions, again via email, that her husband has been having an affair and that they are in the process of separating. She is telling the counsellor this, she says, so she is aware that there might be “some awkwardness” between her and her husband at the next review. Maisie and her younger brother, she says, don’t yet know that anything is going on. During the initial assessment, when the therapist meets with the parent or carer of a pre-“Gillick” competent child and asks them for background information and family history they are asking them to “stand-in” for the client, who themselves is too young to have access to all the relevant information.

Assess where the client is developmentally in relation to their chronological age using appropriate theoretical models before deciding on treatment plan. – Discuss confidentiality with both client and parent(s) in age and developmentally appropriate ways. CHAPTER TWO Contracting and establishing the therapeutic frame C ontracting and establishing a framework within which therapy can take place are integral parts of the counselling and psychotherapy process. The therapeutic frame allows the therapist to define the therapeutic relationship; its terms and limitations.
