    Explanation
    Good objective listening is the basis of all counseling because it involves actively and attentively listening to the client without any personal biases or judgments. It allows the counselor to understand the client's perspective and feelings, creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for them to express themselves. By practicing good objective listening, the counselor can build trust with the client and demonstrate empathy, which are crucial elements in effective counseling.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A counsellor should not minimize the client's problems. Instead, they should provide a safe and supportive space for the client to explore and understand their problems. The role of a counsellor is to help the client gain insight, develop coping strategies, and make positive changes in their life. Minimizing the client's problems would undermine their experiences and emotions, and hinder the therapeutic process.

    C. The ability to be patient and allowing the client to set the pace.
    D. Being honest and responding in a manner which reflects your feelings.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is accepting the client for what he is, and where he is and taking a non-judgmental stance. This is important because it creates a safe and supportive environment for the client to open up and share their thoughts and feelings without fear of being judged. The ability to be patient and allowing the client to set the pace is also crucial as it shows respect for their individual needs and allows them to feel in control of their own progress. Being honest and responding in a manner which reflects your feelings promotes open and authentic communication between the client and the listener.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The task of counselling is to give the client an opportunity  to explore, discover and clarify ways of living more ________ and towards greater well-being.

    • A.

      Resourcefully

    • B.

      Creativeness

    Correct Answer
    A. Resourcefully
    Explanation
    Counselling aims to provide clients with the chance to investigate, uncover, and define ways of living that are more resourceful and lead to greater well-being. By using resources effectively, individuals can find solutions to their problems and make positive changes in their lives. This approach encourages clients to tap into their own strengths and abilities to overcome challenges and find fulfillment. Creativeness, on the other hand, refers more to the ability to think imaginatively and come up with new ideas, which may not be the primary focus of counselling.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Listening prepares the counsellor for emphatic response to the client.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Listening is an essential skill for a counselor as it allows them to fully understand and empathize with the client's concerns and emotions. By actively listening, the counselor can gather important information, identify underlying issues, and demonstrate genuine care and support. This enables them to provide a more effective and empathetic response, ultimately enhancing the therapeutic relationship and facilitating the client's personal growth and development. Therefore, the statement that listening prepares the counselor for an empathic response to the client is true.
