Identifying underlying feelings that your clients might be experiencing, yet unable to identify for themselves, can be a challenge. But it is an important part of the counseling process. Assisting the clients to process their emotional connections to their stories can be the therapeutic key to healing. This also connects with the counselor’s holistic work with clients. For this reason, the first part of this module’s assignment begins with identifying emotional (i.e., feeling) words that can be grounded in five core feeling words: angry, sad, lonely, scared, and happy.

The second part of this module’s assignment is designed for you to refine your understanding of encouragement.
