Assignment No. 02
Due Date: 29.07.15 Marks: 20
Upon the completion of this assignment, students will:
Have an in-depth grip on client- centered approach
Learn how to plan a counselling session based on client- centered approach
Read the following case scenario carefully and with full concentration.
Aleena is a 22 year-old university student. She has a very demanding, high stress studies as a
second year medical student in a prestigious institute of the country. Aleena has always been a
high achiever. She passed high-school with top honors in both college and school. She has very
high standards for herself and can be very self-critical when she fails to meet them. Lately, she
has struggled with significant feelings of worthlessness and shame due to her inability to perform
as well as she always has in the past.
For the past few weeks Aleena has felt unusually fatigued and found it increasingly difficult to
concentrate at work. Her class-fellows have noticed that she is often irritable and withdrawn,
which is quite different from her typically upbeat and friendly disposition. She has called in sick
on several times, which is completely unlike her. On those days she stays in bed all day,
watching TV or sleeping.
At home, Aleena’s mother has noticed changes as well. She’s shown little interest in home
affairs and has had difficulties falling asleep at night. Her insomnia has been keeping her mother
disturb. She’s overheard her having frequent tearful phone conversations with her closest friend,
which have her mother worried. When her mother tries to get her to open up about what’s
bothering her, she pushes her away with an abrupt “everything’s fine”.
Although she hasn’t ever considered suicide, Aleena has found herself increasingly dissatisfied
with her life. She’s been having frequent thoughts of wishing she was dead. She gets frustrated
with herself because she feels like she has every reason to be happy, yet can’t seem to shake the
sense of worthlessness and gloominess.
Now you have to give answers of following questions keeping in mind that your counseling
with Aleena will be based on client- centered approach
1. What will be your role as a counselor? (3)
2. What will be your goals of the counseling? (3)
3. Which technique will you use for counseling?(4)
4. While counseling Aleena what will be your emphases within the frame work of Client-Centered Approach? (10)
