For example, in an article of Academy of Choice a Spring Branch high school by Laura Isensee uses healing circle programs as a new way to discipline students. The healing circle is used to understand the people that were involved in the issue and understand the situation. The healing circle is a way to solve the issues that occurred and have a suitable way of fixing the offense committed. In Academy of Choice they have leadership classes in which they do simulations of the healing circle with students to teach them how a healing circle is processed and finished. Laura Isenesee states, “Students and teachers here have used circles to deal with other problems, like heading off gang fights before they happen or making nasty rumors disappear.”

I am most interested in neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer 's, and their effects on cognition. However, I would also be interested in examining cognitive control in relationship with substance abuse, the effects of substance abuse on the mesolimbic dopaminergic reward pathway, and memory consolidation across the lifespan. I am enthusiastic about the possibility of performing the dual-role of a teacher and a research, however, I will always remember how hard it was to get where I am. Thus, another big goal of mine is to mentor underrepresented college students in their pursuit of a Ph.D. I feel it is my job as a minority individual to help reconcile the racial representation inequities in research.

In William Zinsser’s article, “College Pressures”, he discusses how college students are growing up in a brutal environment that is caused by numerous pressures they are going through. He states that there are four major pressures that effect students. These pressures include economic, parental, peer, and self-induced.

This is merely an attempt to create a more diverse student body, and assure that discrimination not occur. Although there is evidence to support that Affirmative Action is beneficial to the college and its student body, it should not exists in admissions because it limits the number of qualified non-minority students admitted.

I will be straight forward with the client in regards to understanding and know their current spiritual beliefs. In a counseling session with a client that is confronting their issue of depression or anxiety, probing them to elaborate on their answers may result in an undesirable session. Setting boundaries and expectations would be established for the benefits of the counselor and the counselee.
