Submit your final project. For this project, write a mock dialogue with a suicidal client. You may use the same client scenario that you used in the Unit 5 assignment, or you may create a new scenario.
In your dialogue, demonstrate basic counseling skills, including reflective listening, empathy, and summarizing, as well as advanced skills like problem solving and goal setting. You will also need to demonstrate your sensitivity to the diversity characteristics of your client. Once you have agreed on a safety plan with your client, you will go on to develop goals and a treatment plan for future therapy sessions in collaboration with your client.
The dialogue portion of your project should be approximately half of the total length of your final paper. The rest of the paper should explain why you did what you did in the session based on empirical evidence from at least 20 references. Be sure to read the grading criteria in the rubric associated with this assignment carefully, and cover all aspects of the grading criteria in your project to earn the grade you desire.
