Core facilitative conditions depiction in Carl Rogers’ client-centered therapy

Please choose a film, listed below, that addresses the life of a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer, questioning or intersex person (LGBTQQI). Then, research information related to the core facilitative conditions as depicted in Carl Rogers’ client-centered therapy, discuss how you would approach your work if the person in the film were your client. Choose, and also identify in your paper, the point in the narrative of the film at which you, as the social worker, would enter the client’s life. Basic information about the core facilitative conditions will be discussed in class and also can be found in the course textbook.

Please use APA style and at least three scholarly references:

1. Firstly, present a detailed description of the core conditions based on your research. State why knowledge of each core condition, and the associated practice skills, are fundamental to the practice of social work. (20 points)

2. Secondly, present a 3-page narrative of the client, their situation, and possible issues, and circumstances surrounding your entry, as the social worker, into the client’s life. This is not an overview of the film. (30 points)

3. Thirdly, give two specific and dialogic examples of each core condition in the work with your client from the film. For example, describe how an overall empathic approach would help the client, and then give two specific dialogic examples of your attempt to convey empathy to the client through language as illustrated by examples below. (30 points)

4. Fourthly, discuss how the developmental presence and/or absence of the core relational conditions in your life experience might affect your ability to communicate them to the client. (20 points)

Examples of a specific, dialogic example of a core condition in work with a client:

Genuineness: Client says: “I don’t know where to look to find a job right now.”
SW response: “I’m not an expert in employment counseling, but I know that many people consider the internet a good resource when looking for a job.”

Empathy: Client says: “I can’t deal with the kids and all their activities. I have been leaving work early most days of the week to get everyone where they need to go.”
SW response: “It sounds like you are completely overwhelmed and also stressed out with all of your responsibilities with your family right now.”

Unconditional Positive Regard:
Client says: “There are a lot of changes that happened in the world while I was locked up. I’m not sure where I go from here.”
SW response: “My guess is all those years in prison were hard on you, and also served you well by teaching you about persistence and survival.
