Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    In what way can anxiety have a negative effect on a person?

    • A.

      It can make them less physically attractive

    • B.

      They can be prompted by other into making hasty decisions

    • C.

      It can make them seem guilty even when they have done nothing wrong

    Correct Answer
    B. They can be prompted by other into making hasty decisions
    Explanation
    Anxiety can have a negative effect on a person by making them susceptible to being prompted by others into making hasty decisions. When someone is anxious, they may feel overwhelmed or unsure of themselves, leading them to rely on the opinions or suggestions of others. This can result in impulsive choices that may not be well thought out or in their best interest. Anxiety can impair one's ability to think clearly and independently, making them more vulnerable to external influence and potentially regrettable decisions.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Movement through the stages is not uni-directional, and clients may pass back and forth through stages.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because the movement through stages in a process or system is not always in a linear or one-way direction. Clients or individuals can move back and forth between stages, depending on their needs, circumstances, or progress. This flexibility allows for adjustments, revisiting previous stages, or exploring different options, ensuring a more dynamic and adaptable approach to the process.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The counsellor should do which of the following? (Select 3)

    • A.

      Avoid arguing

    • B.

      Express empathy

    • C.

      Establish control

    • D.

      Maintain eye contact

    • E.

      Develop discrepancy

    • F.

      Record all proceedings

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Avoid arguing
    B. Express empathy
    E. Develop discrepancy
    Explanation
    The counsellor should avoid arguing because arguing can escalate the situation and hinder effective communication. Expressing empathy is important as it helps the client feel understood and supported. Developing discrepancy is also crucial as it helps the client recognize the difference between their current behavior and their desired goals, motivating them to make positive changes. Establishing control, maintaining eye contact, and recording all proceedings are not mentioned as necessary actions for the counsellor in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following are 'open' questions? (Select 2)

    • A.

      How are you?

    • B.

      Did you get the bus today?

    • C.

      Do you feel guilty?

    • D.

      How do you feel about the last few weeks?

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. How are you?
    D. How do you feel about the last few weeks?
    Explanation
    The two questions "How are you?" and "How do you feel about the last few weeks?" are open questions because they cannot be answered with a simple yes or no. These questions require the respondent to provide more detailed and subjective information about their feelings and experiences.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The counsellor should never use extremes, as this will frighten the client.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the counsellor should use extremes, which is not true. Using extremes can be detrimental to the client as it may cause fear and anxiety. Counsellors should aim to create a safe and supportive environment for their clients, where they can explore their thoughts and feelings without being overwhelmed. Using extremes can hinder the therapeutic process and potentially harm the client's well-being. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of these would qualify as 'looking forward'?

    • A.

      "What effect do you see these changes having?"

    • B.

      "Do you regret the changes you have made?"

    • C.

      "Is there anything you wish you could have done differently?"

    Correct Answer
    A. "What effect do you see these changes having?"
    Explanation
    The question "What effect do you see these changes having?" qualifies as 'looking forward' because it focuses on the potential outcomes or consequences of the changes. It implies that the person is considering the future impact of the changes and is interested in understanding how they will affect the situation. This question demonstrates a forward-thinking mindset and a willingness to anticipate and plan for the future.
