WORD COUNT: 2,000 (+/- 10%)
LO1. Understand the meaning of discrimination.
LO2. Understand issues of diversity.
LO3. Understand power issues within the counselling process.
1. You are required to create a fictitious client from a community that is different from your own (such as LGBT, Deaf Community, Asian/Indian, African/Afro-Caribbean, Disabled, Transgender, Travelling Community or Syrian immigrant).
2. Use this as a platform from which you can address the assessment criteria in your essay. Highlight the issues that pertain to diversity and discrimination within counselling. In your work, you may identify common denominators with the client; and/or the polar opposite where you cannot relate to the client’s experiences. Support your work with appropriate theory, then summarise by identifying the power or perception of power that is present for you; and how you would demonstrate anti-discriminatory practice.
