How a Helper Develops
The Dualistic or Right/Wrong Stage
The Multiplistic Stage
The Relativistic Stage
I must help clients solve all their problems.
If the client were not motivated, it is my fault.
If I care about my clients or have good practical experience, that is enough.
If I were a good helper, my client will never need help again.
If I wew effective with one client, I will be effective with every client.
There will be many times in my training and work as a helper when I feel incompetent.
I will not be the best match for every client.
If I were succesful, the client may consult me again when a similar problem arises
Although I can stimulate clients to consider making changes, I cannot force them
Besides caring and practical experience in the helping field, I must learn all the skills I can.
