The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate the application of appropriate counselling skills and techniques that you have been exposed to in this unit.

Make a recording of a face-to-face counselling session of 30 minutes in duration. Transcribe 10 minutes of the recording and submit as an appendix to the assessment. Appendices are not included in the word limit. You will need to ensure that the transcription provides adequate material to answer this part of the question. The transcription does not need to be consecutive. Please record the starting time and ending time of each element of the transcription.

While this may be a real life situation or a role-play scenario, the client should not be a member of your family nor a very close friend.

Part B: Written reflection on your counselling skills/techniques base on the transcript

Word length: 2000

The purpose of this part of the assignment is to demonstrate an ability to reflect on and assess your counselling skills and yourself as a therapist, including the ability to identify areas for improvement. Using examples drawn from a transcript of your counselling session you must demonstrate the use of generic skills in combination with one of the therapies studied in this unit. Please ensure that:

? The ability to open the interview is demonstrated

? The ability to assist client to explore the issue, set goals and determine course of action is demonstrated

? The ability to apply person-centred skills demonstrated

In addition, this assessment requires you to critically evaluate your skills by addressing the following:

? Where, in hindsight, do you feel you could have done or said something differently to be more effective, with examples of what you might have said or done differently?

? Provide a brief outline of how you might continue to work with this client in future sessions.

The 2000-word reflection needs to be in academic essay form and fully referenced (see below). It should include references to theories that you translated into practice in the session. Assessment Brief

What we want to see:
This assignment will incorporate a formal introduction, main points, section heading and a
conclusion.
The work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We
recommend you work with your Academic Writing Guide to ensure that you reference correctly. You
will find a link to this document on the main page of every unit, under the ‘Assessments’ section.
Correct academic writing and referencing are essential tasks that you need to learn. We
recommend a minimum of four references.
Referencing: References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic
sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a
reference, but not the Study Guide and lecture notes. We want to see evidence that you are capable
of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determine students’ understanding
of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page
number/s if shown in the original.
Researching: You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online
journal databases and which can be accessed from the library homepage. Reputable news sites
such as The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/au/health), online dictionaries and online
encyclopedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic. Government
departments, research institutes such as the National Health and Medical Research Council
(NHMRC), international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local not
for profit organisations such as the Cancer Council are also good resources.
Formatting: The assessment MUST be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format. Other
formats may not be readable by markers. Please be aware that any assessments submitted in other
formats will be considered LATE and will lose marks until it is presented in Word.
What w e don’t w ant to see:
Plagiarism: All sources of information need to properly be acknowledged. Please refer to the
plagiarism website on blackboardi. By clicking the ‘Upload this file’ button you acknowledge that you
have read, understood and can confirm that the work you are about to submit complies with the
Flexible and Online plagiarism policy as shown in the JNI Student Handbook. Like other forms of
cheating plagiarism is treated seriously. Plagiarising students will be referred to the Program
Manager.
Word Count: Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count – as a general rule you
may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
Late Submissions: Students are advised that any submissions past the due date incur a 10%
penalty per day, calculated from the total mark e.g., a task marked out of 30 will incur 3 marks
penalty per day.
No submission: Students must attempt all tasks to be eligible to pass the subject.
More information can be found in Think Education Assessment Policy document on the Think
Education website.
