    Right. The key to building trust and empathy is to really listen to the client.

    Danielle is a 21 year old white female; who is expecting her third child. Danielle is addicted to pain medication and has been in jail several times, due to drug chargers. Danielle’s mother has been the prime care giver for her two small children, since they were born. Danielle’s children are only three years old and 14 months old and are biracial. Danielle comes from a single parent family; where her mother worked many long hours to provide for the family. Danielle’s father has not played a role in her life, since she was ten years old.
    Danielle is considering given the unborn child up for adoption and seeks information on her options. Danielle also wants help with her addiction to pain medication and help with becoming a more productive loving parent.

    I will use the person centered approach to establish communication with Danielle. This style of communication will provide a comfortable non judgmental environment; which will include open communication, genuineness empathy and conditional positive regard toward Danielle. I will also use a non- direct approach. This approach will help Danielle to find her own solutions to her problems. I will encourage Danielle to talk about her experiences and express how she feels. To show empathy and to show that I have listened to everything she has said, I will repeat emotional significant statements back to her.
