Cancer Staging and Skilled Helper Model
OVERVIEW OF THE SKILLED HELPER MODEL Gerard Egan described 3 stages in his helping model, which he sees as a Ã¢â¬Å"map that helps . . . in your interactions with clientsÃ¢â¬ . Ã¢â¬ Each stage can support the helpee in asking a question of themselves. Stage 1: Current scenario: Ã¢â¬Å"What is here? Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬ ¢ This is about building a trusting relationship with the helpee and helping them to explore and clarify their problem situation. Ã¢â¬ ¢ It deals with what is happening now for the helpee. Stage II: Preferred scenario: Ã¢â¬Å"What do I want here? Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬ ¢ This is about helping the helpee to identify what they want. Ã¢â¬ ¢ It is about identifying what options are open to the helpee. Stage III: Action: Ã¢â¬Å"How might I help this to happen? Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬ ¢ This is about supporting the helpee to look at how they might help themselves. Ã¢â¬ ¢ It is about looking at possible outcomes Note: The stages do not necessarily follow this order Ã¢â¬â helping relationshi ps do not move in a straight line! Client-centred helping is fluid and flexible Ã¢â¬â and follows the helpee Ã¢â¬â perhaps moving in a spiral, round and down. This model is useful in helping us to look at the different Ã¢â¬ËstagesÃ¢â¬â¢ that we might experience with a helpee as our relationship develops. Ã¢â¬ Egan, G.
