Reviewing The Working Agreement In Counselling
Most consulting courses require advice from students to implement a professional development protocol. Such a protocol could contain details of training, aspects that arise from supervision or practice, which the counsellor considered important. A professional development protocol helps the advisor focus on the experience of individual practitioners (Wilkins, 1997). In addition, some consultants use audio or video recordings of sessions that adapt the principles of the Interpersonal Process Recall (IPR) (Dryden, W, Thorne, B, 1991). The RRI helps to stop the tape so that moments of particular importance can be dealt with in terms of thoughts, feelings and subsequent actions. Type of consulting work – it`s a very short paragraph (small introductory paragraph on how you work). (That is, write down all the terms used; that you perform regular progress checks; that you are working on an agreed-upon end of consulting work; that the client may feel “less well before they feel better,” etc. As a general rule, an advisor will present orally the main points of the consulting contract before the start of the meetings to ensure that his client is satisfied with the conditions of the work done. This first oral presentation allows clients to ask questions and clarify all points of the contract on which they are unclear.
The advisor can then provide the details discussed in a written document signed by both the advisor and the client. The reasons why deliberations cannot be continued (except on the basis of an agreed meeting conclusion), i.e. all contraindications that could lead to conflicts of interest or affect ethical limits. (Ref: NCS Code of Ethics www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org/about-us/code-of-ethics/.) Consultants from other therapeutic beliefs may consider such a structured approach to be detrimental to the nature of the therapeutic relationship and therefore wish to base it on a less frequent or even less frequent or even less frequent basis. Indeed, some advisors see this approach as “performance rather than quality” (House, 1998). A review can be oral, with the advisor asking the client to assess where he started (regarding how he felt at the beginning of the consultation in relation to their initial problems), where he now feels (progress to date) and where he wants to be (future centre of gravity).
