Consideration of Attitudes and Skills of a Counselor from the point of view of Confirmative Response

(written in Japanese language)

Yoshio ASANO

Abstract:


The purpose of this study is to compare the concept of gDialogue methodh proposed by Asano with that of the traditional theory of counseling.

The principle of gDialogue methodh is gBefore telling your own thoughts and feelings, confirm in your own words the point the speaker wants to say.h

This method suggests classifying all responses in verbal communications into gconfirmative responseh and greactive response.h

These new simple concepts and skills are effective in understanding the theory and skills of counseling. gConfirmative responseh decreases weak points of greflection of feelingsh and grepeating mechanically.h

And the traditional classification of counselor's responses is simplified by the new classification.

Key Words:

dialogue method, confirmative response, reactive response, counseling, empathy
