OF THIS
TRAINING?
Defining what counseling is
OPERATIONAL DEFINITION

is a short-term, theory-based, non-directive, non-judgmental process.
During this process, a person (client) who is basically facing adjustment or situational problems is empowered to gain awareness of him/herself and of his/her situation and to make decisions through the support and assistance offered by another person (counselor) through their relationship.
Handling child sexual abuse cases is demanding.
This is a fact.

The process involved is complex and it requires direct service providers three levels:

Practically - it requires you to collaborate with a variety of professionals and clients in your efforts to do what is best for the child

Emotionally - it challenges you to remain objectives amidst a highly charged case

Intellectually - it demands that you understand the impacts of abuse on the child and family and sources of the problem;
The role of the direct service provider is crucial and important in helping victims of CSA cases.
It is important to be aware and deal with your own issues so they do not get in the way of helping children
Direct service providers who are burdened with personal issues can operate in the manner of counter-transference functions and can cause harm to children
Otherwise, you'll end up having
COUNTER-TRANSFERENCE
.
Counter-transference is when feelings of the counselor from the past or present unconsciously transfer to the client.
Handling sexual abuse cases is a demanding task
A process wherein a person is helped to help himself

Principles of Counseling
Do not
judge…
You are a sinful woman!
Do not
blame the victim…
I told you not to go out wearing such a short dress. You deserve what happened to you!
Do not
warn…
If you do that, you will regret it in the end!
What do you think?
Do not
deny feelings…
Why should you feel angry? Kasalanan yan sa Diyos
Do not
make promises…
Allen Ivey, 1988
