This is a completely new series with relevant and important options for your classroom. Students will observe the specifics of influencing skills in reality based demonstrations with many subscripts and discussion questions.
Here is what you'll find on the new Basic Influencing Skills DVD:
- Listening Skills. Mary demonstrates the danger of listening skills that move the client in her direction. She then contrasts this with a positive example illustrating a more open style for drawing out the client's story with a focus on multicultural sensitivity. The client is from South America.
- Client Change Scale: Assessing Client Change in the Interview. A series of practice exercises show students how to determine if their interventions are meaningful, both in the here and now of the interview and over a series of sessions.
- Confrontation. Norma shows how to challenge a difficult client through the skills of listening and confrontation. The client is a White male.
- Focusing. Carlos demonstrates the power of focusing in building client awareness of the multiple issues surrounding any client issue or problem. The client is an African-American female.
- Reflection of Meaning/The Community Genogram. Allen uses the popular community genogram to draw out the social and cultural context of a Cuban-American client. By using the genogram, Ivey draws out several stories and helps the client reflect on their meaning for now and the future.
- Reframing/Interpretation. Kent works with an African American client who has difficulty with her supervisor's performance review in practicum. Through reframing, the review is viewed in a more positive and useful manner.
- Feedback/Self Disclosure. Norma first shows how not to use these important skills with a White woman. This is following by a session in which women's issues are explored with more sensitivity.
- Logical Consequences. Kent, working with a difficult and challenging White client, shows how to deal with resistance and help the client see the consequences of his actions.
- Directives/Psychoeducation. Mary works with an African American male and demonstrates the skill of providing directives plus teaching some specifics around the importance of exercise for stress management.
- Integration of Skills. Allen works with a Cuban-American woman who has experienced discrimination. You will see the woman move from a beginning understanding of oppression to a level 4 or 5 cultural identity, where she is changing her cognitions and emotions and moving to an action stance.
