After you have developed two open-ended questions, look at the
statement again and develop a brief scenario for the situation. Then
identify strength in the client and one affirmation statement a
counselor could use in therapy.
Example: Statement: I love my kids, but sometimes they push me to the edge, and then I do things I shouldn’t.
Open-ended Questions: Tell me about a time recently
when you did something and then afterward felt like you shouldn’t have
done it. What are the feelings like after one of these episodes when
you’ve felt pushed and then reacted in a way you didn’t like?
Scenario: A mother recently got so frustrated with
her six-year-old daughter for leaving her toys out after repeated
requests to clean her room. She opened the window, started throwing the
toy out onto the lawn, and screaming at her daughter that she did not

Strength: Mom is vested in teaching her daughter the importance of taking responsibility and learning to care for her belongings.
Affirmation: You are attempting to instill a sense of responsibility in your daughter from a young age.
Expand and integrate into the discussion a challenge, refute, or accept the other students’ responses.
Explain and justify why you did refute, challenge, and modify, or accept their ideas.
