How did the counselor apply the information-giving responses?

Watch the “Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy” video found in this week’s Electronic Reserve Readings. You do not need to watch the entire video. At a minimum, watch from the 33-minute mark until the 51- minute mark.

Write a 1,400- to 2,100-word paper about information-giving responses and the characteristics of interview phases. Include examples from the video that demonstrate the following topics:

  • The counselor’s nonverbal and verbal skills
  • Did certain questions or comments create a change in nonverbal or verbal actions for the clients?
  • What open- and closed-ended questions did the counselor use?
  • What techniques did the counselor use to paraphrase and summarize the words of the clients? Was this effective?
  • How did the counselor apply the information-giving responses?
  • Identify the exploration, clarification, and action stages of the interview.
  • What are examples of reflective feeling?
  • How did the counselor encourage the clients to self-disclose? Was she successful?
  • Provide your thoughts on the overall interview structure. Was it a comfortable setting? How could it be improved?

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
