    The answer "All of the above" suggests that therapists do not manipulate their clients, do not use self-disclosure excessively, do not ignore the problem, and do not act too soon.

    Correct Answer
    D. Empathetic
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Indicators of active listening are:

    • A.

      Paraphrasing

    • B.

      Summarising

    • C.

      Reflecting

    • D.

      A and b

    • E.

      B and c

    Correct Answer
    D. A and b
    Explanation
    The indicators of active listening are paraphrasing and summarizing. Paraphrasing involves restating or rephrasing what the speaker has said in your own words, while summarizing involves giving a brief overview of the main points or ideas expressed by the speaker. These two techniques demonstrate that the listener is actively engaged in understanding and processing the information being communicated. Reflecting, on the other hand, is not an indicator of active listening and therefore not included in the correct answer.

    In which therapy are collaborative empiricism, guided discovery, and Socratic questioning core elements of the therapeutic relationship in which therapy?

    • A.

      CBT

    • B.

      BT

    • C.

      IPT

    • D.

      NT

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. CBT
    Explanation
    Collaborative empiricism, guided discovery, and Socratic questioning are core elements of the therapeutic relationship in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In CBT, the therapist and client work together to identify and challenge negative thoughts and beliefs, and to develop more adaptive ways of thinking and behaving. Collaborative empiricism refers to the therapist and client working together to gather evidence and test the validity of the client's thoughts and beliefs. Guided discovery involves the therapist helping the client explore and uncover their own insights and solutions. Socratic questioning is a method of inquiry used by the therapist to challenge and examine the client's thoughts and beliefs.

  • 6. 

    Choose the FALSE one.

    • A.

      Collaboration = empiricism

    • B.

      Collaborative empiricism means sharing the work and testing the ideas.

    • C.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A and B
    Explanation
    The given statement "Both A and B" is false because collaboration does not necessarily equate to empiricism. While collaborative empiricism does involve sharing work and testing ideas, collaboration can also occur in other contexts that do not involve empiricism. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that both A (Collaboration) and B (Empiricism) are false.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Empathy
    Explanation
    A therapist must have empathy because it is a crucial quality for building a strong therapeutic relationship with clients. Empathy allows the therapist to understand and share the feelings and experiences of their clients, creating a safe and supportive environment for them to explore their emotions. It helps the therapist to connect with clients on a deeper level, demonstrating understanding and compassion, which is essential for effective therapy. Empathy also enables the therapist to provide appropriate and personalized interventions, tailoring their approach to meet the unique needs of each individual.

      A & B

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The principles of guided discovery depend on the ability of the client to reason, the need of the client to analyze, and the ability of the client to compare. These principles involve guiding the client to discover solutions and insights through their own reasoning and analytical skills.
