Defence School News School Counsellor Dear Bakewell Students, Family and Community, Recently I engaged in reflective practiced focused on why therapy has not worked and thought it would be helpful to share. As teachers, carers, parents and community members, it can be frustrating to seek help with an emotional issue and not obtain the desired outcome or goals. The therapeutic process is a challenging activity for everyone, it often explores personal and intimate topics that people would not readily talk about with their loved ones. Studies show over and over again that the relationship between the therapist and client is the biggest predictor of a meaningful and positive outcome, more so than the type of intervention used. If a client doesnt connect with their therapist they are unlikely to engage in meaningful exploration of their feelings and process their tangled emotions. Therapy itself is an activity, it is designed to obtain resolution of an issue but not resolve the issue itself. The client is the expert in their life and if you sit down with someone who makes you feel ashamed, disempowered or wrong then it is unlikely you will share your inner feelings and make successful gains. Other reasons therapy may not work are clients may not be quiet ready to go there, a cognitive approach was used which only supports cortex processing and a lot of emotional trauma sits below the cortex meaning that non-verbal therapies could be more affective. Whilst I strongly support and advocate for people to be kind and care for one another and ask each other R U OK? sometime counselling is not the answer. Being attentive and attune to our students/ children will help us identify the best way we can support and grow strong, successful children. Annette Murphy School Counsellor Community News ROAD SAFETY - Students please take care when crossing the road. STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK, even when using the childrens crossing. Wet weather procedures were sent home recently. Please remember that the school will not automatically dismiss students at 2:30pm if there is an electrical storm or it is raining too heavily. Students will remain in classes under teacher supervision until we consider the weather okay for them to make their way home safely. Parents wishing to collect their children from the classroom may do so. Older siblings should not be sent to collect younger siblings. Please have a plan and make sure your child/ren know the plan.
