Your human services counseling clients will come to you suffering at one level or another. The Learn materials from the last two modules discuss the concept of suffering and factors guiding how to counsel those who are suffering. In fact, a careful analysis of the Learn materials indicates numerous concepts and principles that could apply in counseling those who are hurting.

1. As you counsel your hurting clients, what you say to them will be guided by your own beliefs about the role of suffering in human experience (part of your own “theoretical map” as discussed in the lecture). Considering the numerous points that were made in the course, make a list of at least 5 concepts (“questions to ask myself as I counsel those who are suffering. . . “) that you found particularly 
helpful, insightful, unique, or 
had not thought about before. What guidelines would you particularly emphasize as you counsel hurting people? The five concepts you list should be based on the course materials, so make sure you cite the source you use.

2. Then consider the following scenario. What suggestions from the course materials would you want to apply to this hurting client? Why did you choose those suggestions as most important?


Scenario

You work primarily for an adoption agency but on some evenings, you volunteer your time at your church’s free counseling clinic. Your client in that setting, Jamie, was recently divorced, and expresses that she “has no direction” in life. She feels very rejected and alone. She often cries in session and in her latest session, lashed out at you, her therapist, since she was “not feeling better.” She questioned whether you were really helping her since she is still “feeling all this pain.” She left asking, “Why can’t you help remove this needless suffering?”

The student will post one thread of at least 400 words in addition to supporting your initial comments from course materials (with proper, current APA citation), the integration of a Christian worldview is always
appropriate.
