NORMALISE EMOTIONAL STATES IN MENTAL HEALTH WELL
This can be viewed as a means of quite literally
making someone’s present plight seem normal. That is, if a client presents with
anything ranging from a trauma to everyday life crises, which are preventing
them from dealing with everyday scenarios, then by suggesting to them that this
is a perfectly normal response given their circumstances, should help to put
them at ease.
Often clients may become frightened by intense emotions that accompany their psychological state. They can feel that they are losing control and that they will end up in a psychiatric hospital. However, it is of course possible that the client may require psychiatric help, so this should not be denied. Instead it is better to recognise their fear and respond with something such as ‘you are afraid that you are going mad’.
