At a minimum, female clients should receive nonsexist counseling; that is, they should receive the same type of counseling as males, at least in terms of avoiding bias (Helms, 1979). Specifically, counselors should avoid fostering traditional sex roles, devaluing women, or responding to women as sex objects (compare to Fouad & Chan, 1999; Paniagua, 2005). At the same time, counselors should be familiar with issues that specifically impact female 40 CHAPTER 4 clients (Brown, 1994; Lijtmaer, 1998; Worell & Remer, 2002).

Clients have a right to their personal values. 27 DO NOT ASSUME THAT YOU KNOW CLIENTS’ FEELINGS, THOUGHTS, AND BEHAVIORS When we talk with other people, ordinarily we assume that we know what they are feeling or thinking. Experience in counseling demonstrates the fallacy of this assumption. CLIENT: So I just left after we started to argue. COUNSELOR: You were very angry. CLIENT: No, I had to leave for work in 10 minutes, and I knew we’d never resolve anything in that amount of time. In this example, the client corrected the counselor’s misperception.

COUNSELOR: I’m delighted. You worked very hard to sort things out with yourself and your family. CLIENT: I certainly appreciate your help and listening to me while I was so confused about what to do. COUNSELOR: Well, I enjoyed listening to you. I’m glad you’re ready to go, but sad we won’t be meeting anymore. CLIENT: Me too . . but I know I can talk things out with my parents in the future. Client issues may also appear or reappear during the termination process. Past grief may surface, or the client may bring up a major event that was never previously mentioned (for example, sexual abuse).
