Baseball or Bat, which one are you?

2 Answers

I am the Bat, the ball is my destiny. I control how far I hit my "ball"

On the other hand a bat has only one purpose. The ball can be hit by the bat, but also thrown, and caught. When the baseball is managed correctly, it will produce outs, and home runs. I might rather be the ball. Less

How would you react if a client mentioned suicidal ideation and asked whether you experience such thoughts?

2 Answers

If someone asked me have I ever had suicidal thoughts, I would tell them yes I have. I am a very honest person, and although it is advised not to do so, I strongly feel that being open, honest and relatable helps a person to not only understand that those type of thoughts are in fact normal but also that he or she is not alone in feeling such emotions. I would explain that even though the thoughts are normal, they are also destructive to an individual's mental, psychological, emotional, spiritual and finally, physical well being. I know how it is to feel that no one understands how you feel inside. When people self harm, they are simply trying to release the internal pain or see if the external pain feels as bad as the internal pain. Using unconditional love, compassion, understanding and spiritual knowledge, I will work towards healing the individual. Less

I d say that sometimes death thoughts are normal, and also suicidal ideations could be a symptom or simply thoughts; it depends on how do they fit into the patient’s history; in his her everyday life. I’d replay, and I’d say: no, personally I don’t. I think that it could be an important moment into the terapeutic relation and I’d be honest. He’s speaking of suicidal ideation and it could represent a clear help request that I don’t want to deny or not accept. I would try to go with the patient into the suicidal ideation, and i’d try to help the patient to give it a sense. Less

Give an example of how you worked with someone with challenging behaviour.

1 Answers

There have been several times when l have worked with a client displaying challenging behaviour. on one occasion a young woman whom l was working with became highly distressed and angry following a meeting with the psychiatrist. whilst escorting her back to her room she proceeded to repeatedly bang he head on the door. I pulled my alarm and spoke calmly to her asking her to take some breaths. Once she stopped she asked if l would speak to her in her room. As we had spent many sessions prior on emotion regulation and distress tolerance l was able to help her calm and rationalise her experience. Less
