Role-play a mock session with a volunteer “client.” In this session, strive to apply what you’ve learned from the readings this week as you conceptualize the client’s issues and help the client set goals. You will still need to use all the basic counseling skills and attending skills and add to those the more complex skills of case conceptualization and goal setting. How well did you do in your skills practice this week? Were you able to understand what your client’s issues were and help your client develop appropriate goals? What do you still need to learn to be able to even more effectively build a good working alliance and help clients set desirable goals for their counseling?
