    The statement is true because effective counselors aim to establish a strong and meaningful connection with their clients. This connection is characterized by emotions, trust, respect, and confidence.

    Research would also suggest that multiple sessions of counselling will have profound impact.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that research supports the idea that multiple counseling sessions will have a significant impact. However, the correct answer is False. The reason for this is not provided, but it could be because research may not always indicate that multiple counseling sessions are necessary or effective for every individual or every situation. Additionally, the statement does not specify the type of research or provide any evidence to support the claim.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Motivation belongs to the individual, but can be influenced by discussions between the counsellor and his/her client.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Motivation is indeed a personal and internal drive that comes from within an individual. However, discussions between a counselor and their client can play a significant role in influencing and enhancing motivation. Through these discussions, the counselor can provide guidance, support, and encouragement, which can help the client find their own motivation and work towards their goals. Therefore, it is true that motivation belongs to the individual but can be influenced by discussions with a counselor.

  • 6. 

    An effective session between the client and the counsellor is the sine qua non of therapy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement states that an effective session between the client and the counselor is an essential requirement for therapy. The correct answer is False because while an effective session is important, it is not the sole determinant of the success of therapy. Other factors such as the client's commitment, the counselor's expertise, and the therapeutic approach used also play a significant role in the effectiveness of therapy.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Sympathy is crucial to good counselling.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Sympathy is not crucial to good counseling. While empathy, understanding, and compassion are important qualities for a counselor to possess, sympathy involves personally identifying with and feeling sorry for a client's situation, which can hinder the counselor's ability to provide objective and unbiased support. Instead, counselors strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their feelings and thoughts, focusing on empathy and understanding rather than sympathy.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The best counsellors control the tone of the proceedings from the second session to the last.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it states that the best counsellors control the tone of the proceedings from the second session to the last. However, there is no evidence or explanation provided to support this claim. It is not necessarily true that the best counsellors always control the tone of the proceedings. The tone of the sessions can be influenced by various factors, including the participants' attitudes, emotions, and the nature of the issues being discussed. Therefore, it cannot be concluded that the best counsellors always have control over the tone of the proceedings.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that counselling models, theories, and techniques are based on looking back at what successful counsellors have done in the past. This implies that these models are developed by analyzing the practices and approaches of experienced counsellors and determining what has worked effectively. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Empathy and respect seem to allow licence for minimal leverage to be applied in order to motivate the client into recovery.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Empathy and respect alone do not provide license for minimal leverage to be applied in order to motivate the client into recovery. While empathy and respect are important in building a therapeutic relationship, motivation for recovery often requires more than just these qualities. Effective treatment often involves a combination of empathy, respect, support, guidance, and sometimes even firmness or setting boundaries. Therefore, the statement is false.
