Title and brief description
Case Scenarios Series: Trauma and Stress Related Disorders:Post Traumatic Stress Disorder-Post Traumatic stress disorder: Sexual assault (2012)
The video I selected details the experience of Kristina who was sexually assaulted and raped. This attack has left Kristina feeling unsure about seeing her doctor. Kristina is experiencing nightmares, frightened to go to public places and she is having problems in her relationship with her boyfriend Josh. Kristina states in the video that she relives the sexual assault in her mind over and over and is fearful that it could happen again (Walden Library, 2012).
Explain client issue and population
Kristina is experiencing trauma associated with her sexual assault and rape. As a result of this traumatic attack Kristina is fearful which has affected her ability to operate in her normal environment. Kristina feels safe when she is in the presence of her family but does not feel safe anywhere else. Kristina has it in her mind that the attack can and will happen again so to distance herself she stays at home. This population of individuals interests me because of the impact it has on lives. Trauma can keep an individual held hostage for so long that it can become incapacitating. I want to work with this population so that I am able to provide coping skills that will get them back to normalcy. Kristina would be categorized as being in early adulthood. In early adulthood individuals will assume more responsibility as young adults and will have to identify with healthy coping strategies (Erford, 2018).
Explain any insights
One insight that I gained is that the counselor went at the pace of the client. When Kristina stated she did not want to talk about the attack the counselor relented and moved on (Walden Library, 2012). The counselor asked questions in such a way that it eventually brought the conversation back to the attack. At that moment Kristina was able to talk about the attack more and I did not feel she was pressured. Once she began to talk and feel in the moment the counselor still continued to ask questions in an appropriate manner. I concluded that when working with an individual who has experienced trauma that the session should be paced by the reaction and responses of the client. The counselor should never push or force the client to talk about what is uncomfortable to them. The tone of voice is also important during a session of this sort.
Explain confirm or challenged
After viewing this video my interest is still piqued to work with this population. I think at some point in all of our lives we have dealt with trauma to a certain extent. My hopes for working with this population is to get that person back to a state of wholeness or a semblance of that. I am passionate about not letting the things of your past control your future. I am optimistic that doing the required work for a person that has experienced trauma can be rewarding and fulfilling both for the counselor and client. I feel like all of us have a purpose in life and if we can deal and cope with the traumatic events that we face, on the other side of trauma we have the potential of coming out better than before. There are developmental tasks individual will be faced with at each stage of life (Erford, 2018). It i what you do with these tasks that counts.
