Loaded Remarks from the Client’s Perspective. This DVD contains twelve examples of types of response that might be made to a client: each of them is either clumsy, inappropriate, sexist, or just plain wrong! They are typical of the mistakes counsellors and therapists might make. Since discussion of each scene is likely to last at least five minutes, using all twelve scenes takes over an hour.
Directed by Michael Jacobs.
