Dealing in Deception

Welcome to Edition 320 of Institute Inbrief. In our previous article (Edition 319), we acknowledged that engaging in deception can have cognitive, emotional, and social benefits. In this edition, we examine the different types of deception, see how it creates relational fallout, and examine the question of gullibility: that is, are we hardwired to be suspicious, or to trust, and how might habitual lying change things?

  3. A Case Using Equine-Assisted Therapy Counselling: From Resistance to Acceptance

Conflict resolution skills, Part 2; a Case of Low Self-Esteem

View

Welcome to this edition of Institute Inbrief.

 

Before we focus on what is included in this edition, we would like to extend our support and condolences to all affected by the bushfires in Victoria. The public support and donations have been overwhelming. It shows us what can really be achieved when we put our minds to it.

 

News reports tell us daily about our economic crisis yet Australians have cast that aside to help their neighbours in Victoria and have given millions of dollars of their own money.  The resilience, generosity and kind-heartedness of the Australian community should be applauded.

 

In this edition of Inbrief we continue with Part 2 of our Conflict Resolution Skills series. In Part 2 we look at client values a counsellor should consider, and the different degrees of conflict.  We also have a case study focusing on a client with low self-esteem and an article on the Solution Focused approach.

 

Enjoy your reading and we will see you next edition.
