Areas that Were Done Well by the Practitioner
           The  practitioner started the session in an outstanding way by notifying the  client that he has a confidentiality and privacy right and promised the  client that every information discussed will be between both of them  but can only be released with informed consent (American Psychological Association, 2013). The practitioner also  notified that client that the confidentiality agreement can only be  broken if he is likely to hurt himself or others. It was observed that  the provider kept an eye contact with the client while the interview was  going on which is a good communication strategy during counseling. 
             Initially, the client would not open up, but the practitioner had a  great skill that retrieved the needed answers from the client. He  specifically occupied the client with questions concerning what he loves  doing when he is not in school and also regarding school life. The  practitioner gave the client the opportunity to verbalize how he feels  about his anger problems. The practitioner joked about teenagers not  liking to communicate much with their mothers which the client agreed to  and it enhanced the bond between both client and practitioner. The  practitioner summed up the client’s issue as needing someone with a  listening ear and not nagging at him to take their advice. This proves  that the client and the practitioner were both focused on one another  during the interview session ((Sadock, Sadock & Ruiz, 2014).
Areas Which Need Improvement
             The practitioner did not introduce himself to the client formally at  the beginning of the session or describe what he was about to do.  Clients generally feel safe and easily opens up if they know what who  they are talking to. Avoiding negative statements during an interview  such as “that must have been kind of confusing” is important. Such  statements could make some clients uncomfortable instead of empathizing  with them and it can also increase their anger issues (YMH Boston, 2013). Negative  statements can lead to the client displaying negative attitude mostly  when it has to do with his mother whom the client already have anger  issues with (Sadock, Sadock & Ruiz, 2014). The  sitting position of the provider with one leg crossed on top of the  other was not professional. Siting upright and leaning forward towards  the client reveals that he is very interested on what the client is  about to say. 
Compelling Concerns
             The client verbalized that he comfortably talks about how he feels with  his coach and a girlfriend. Although it is common with some teenagers,  it is concerning that he cannot relate with any family member or close  friend. The client made it clear that he hates when his mother nags at  him to discuss things which he would not want to and it is viewed as a  family and developmental issue. Adolescents deals with physical and  psychological metamorphosis as well as trying to be independent, make  impression on parents, and these issues could influence his emotions and  conflict leading to his anger (Wheeler, 2014). It is obvious that not liking school could be the main trigger of his anger. 
Next Question and Why
             The next question would be finding out if the client has ever thought  or planned hurting himself or anyone else since he is still faced with  what he hates doing which is school and facing mum daily.  Finding out  if the client has used any substance in the past or currently is another  important question. Substance use is one of the occurrences that  changes the behavior of teenagers in their environment. My last question  will be to find out why he did not like school.  He could have been  going through some academic challenges, feeling swamped, or oppressed in  school which could lead to feelings of depression, suicide and or  anxiety (Sadock, Sadock & Ruiz, 2014).
