Description

This chapter describes how to identify client solutions to the problems they pose in their early recollections. With a client's perspective and preoccupations in mind, practitioners begin to consider responses to the question about role models. Models are selected because they portray tentative solutions to the client's predicament in life. How clients describe their role models reveals core elements in their own self-concepts. The systematic reconstruction of a client's 'self' in the life portrait encourages clients to substantiate their self-concepts and highlight their characteristics. To investigate how a person conceptualizes the self, practitioners look to the models as blueprints used by clients early in the process of self-construction. From this perspective, practitioners view role models as the first career choice. When inquiring about role models, it is best to elicit three models because a client's self and self-concept are a complex amalgam of influences and identifications.
