Listen to the client's concerns, help them understand their options, empower them to make a decision.
I do not have any experience with being on one on one as a VR counselor however. During my practicum and internship I have been able to work with clients. Recently with a few clients one on one without anyone begin there. For example I was working with a client during my first intake by myself and I had a plan of how I was going to approach the client. . The client was shy and quite and he was younger so certain things he didn't know so I had to simplify them and break them down for the client. I think that experience right there has definitely helped prepare for this experience because it showed me that not every client is going to be outspoken and you might have to change your approach with the client so that they can better understand you and comprehend what's going on. In the MR DD caseload I may have to do that quite often and I may have to take a different approach and that's ok. You have to be willing to do what's best for the client but that's just one example that has prepared me for this position.
