Question Description

Details:

Hector is a 35-year-old Hispanic male. Hector was seriously injured in an auto accident 5 months ago. He spent 4 months in the hospital. One leg and hip suffered permanent damage. He will probably always need a cane and walk with a limp. He also has limited mobility in his right arm and shoulder and cannot lift anything heavy.

Hector grew up in a family with a construction business. He has been working in construction since high school. Social work at the rehab hospital referred Hector to counseling because he is not adjusting well to his injuries. He is very depressed and angry because he cannot continue to work in his chosen occupation. Hector says, “What use am I now? I am the man in the family. I should be strong. I need to support the family. I don’t want my wife to work. I don’t know what I am going to do to make a living.”

Hector still experiences severe pain in his shoulder and his leg. He spends a lot of time watching TV and drinking. At this point, he is not looking for work. His family has reached out to him but he avoids interaction with his siblings and his parents because they remind him of what he no longer can do. He feels shame when he is around family members because of his disability. His relationship with his wife is tense because he is often angry and withdrawn.

You are meeting with Hector for the first time and want to get the story.

As we meet with a new client we develop some hypotheses to explore, as well as listening to what the client says about himself.

Write a 750-1,000-word paper addressing the following:

  1. What are some of primary issues that Hector is addressing?
  2. What are some of Hector’s feelings?
  3. What are Hector’s behaviors and how are these impacting his adjustment?
  4. How might Hector’s cultural heritage be impacting his adjustment to his injury?
  5. What are some beliefs that may be impacting Hector’s adjustment?
  6. How might Hector’s family background be impacting his adjustment?
  7. What might be some issues that will need to be addressed in counseling?
  8. What are the stages of change the counselor will help Hector through? Provide a brief definition of each stage.
  9. What steps can a counselor take to help Hector explore his problems?
  10. Consider the following counselor skills: eye contact, closed and open-ended questions, paraphrasing and summarizing, reflection, body language, tone, listening, empathy, genuineness, unconditional positive regard, interpretation, tracking, reflecting emotion, active presence, structuring sessions, encouragement, questioning and clarifying, counselor self-awareness, tolerating intensity, validating, challenging, multicultural awareness/acceptance, probing and questioning, posture. Pick one skill and discuss how a counselor should use this in their sessions with Hector.

Include at three scholarly references in your paper. At least two resources should identify issues that need to be addressed when you are working with someone who is being rehabilitated from a serious injury.

After the meeting with Hector; some of the issues that he is addressing after the accident
are: coming to terms with the state that the accident has put him. This is because his leg and hip
have permanent damage and his arm is also injured meaning that he cannot lift anything heavy.

Because of this he is also dealing with the issue of working and he is afraid that he is never going
to be able to work and so he will not be able to provide for his family anymore. He is also
dealing with an issue of self-esteem due to the state he is currently in. another primary issue that
he is currently dealing with is his continued damaging of the relationships in his life especially
with his wife and family.
Hector is feeling that he is no longer deserving of the title Man because he can no longer
be a provider for the family due to his injuries that affect his line of work, he therefore feels that
he has let down his family. For this reason he is feeling very angry and he seems to be depressed...
