Therapists used silence primarily to facilitate reflection, encourage responsibility, facilitate expression of feelings, not interrupt session flow, and convey empathy. During silence, therapists observed the client, thought about the therapy, and conveyed interest. In general, therapists indicated that they would use silence with clients who were actively problem solving, but they would not use silence with very disturbed clients. Therapists learned about using silence mostly through clinical experience. Piaget’s Cognitive Stages (Developmental Counseling version) A client who is in a sensorimotor stage of cognitive development will express his or her emotions through behavioral and physical means. A client in the concrete stage of cognitive development will be able to name feelings but be unable to reflect on those feelings. A client in the Formal stage of cognitive development will be able to talk abstractly about their feelings and recognize patterns. A client in the dialectic stage is able to integrate all their personal reflections and multiple perspectives to devise a plan that will address any dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, or behaviors.
