Duffy and Chenail (2008) stated when using a research approach in counseling, the counselor needs to make sure they understand the value and the purpose of the research study. The research needs to be appropriate to the client needs. Therefore, the counselor should be aware of the role and the responsibilities when using research for their client that they might not be any biases or cultural sensitive towards the client, if the counselor does not feel comfortable using the research the counselor can also reference “The Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association”. Sherpis and Daniels (2017) specified when a counselor is conducting a research study or using a research they should consider the dignity and welfare of the client. The counselor needs to make sure to respect clients at all times.
To serve others you need a favorable character, which I believe I posses. Participating in social services for orphanages and homes for elders have been experiences that build my character. By helping others I help myself be a better person, and get new prespectives of life. Being part of the National Honor Society comes with its benefits and responsibilities. I am prepared to take both and fulfill them as best as I can.
Introduction Therapists carry considerable responsibility for the effectiveness and good reputation of their practise. As professionals, we are expected to make reasonable and informed decisions in the best interest of our clients that meet the standard relevant to our practise. Dryden & Branch (2012). In this assignment I will be showing my knowledge and overall awareness of how professional issues impact on the work of a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT).The four main issues I will be exploring are; supervision, ethical issues in therapy, contextual issues and monitoring your own effectiveness as a therapist. This assignment will also look at any organisational factors in the place of work, such as the availability of resources and
Counseling is a process of empowering persons so that they can find the strength to deal with conflicting issue(s). It is the process of helping them understand how their current thoughts or behaviors are interfering with their present and future goals. Finally, it is about helping them create strategies to regain a path to the desired goal, and how they can maintain that pathway. Before a treatment plan can be developed, counselor’s need to conduct an initial interview of the clients’ social, physical and psychological world. Clients come seeking counseling from all spheres of live and from different purposes (court ordered, to please relatives, or seeking self-help).
Treatment services are provided by Masters and Licensed Level Clinicians. TeamUP Counseling adopts a strengths-based, wraparound approach when working with youth and families. The TeamUP approach is to work together to unlock your UNLIMITED POTENTIAL (TeamUp).” Ms. Smallwood explain to me that every employee must keep an open mind and provide the best potential services to empower their client so that they can be and do all that they can
(2011) stated that relationship-based practice is important because it encourages a practitioner to act in the service user’s best interests by “holistically understanding the service user’s response to a certain situation.” This includes understanding their cultural backgrounds, needs and values so that their response is supported and understood. Wilson et al. (2011) suggests that relationship-based practice is important in a social work setting as it understands that human behaviour and the professional relationship is an essential component on any professional intervention. The relationship based practise emphases the importance of the ‘use of self’ in interventions as it contributes to a professional’s experiences (Ruch, et al., 2010). This is supported by the professional capabilities framework (PCF) domain one (Professionalism) as it states the importance of making skilled use of self as part of interventions that aim to help clients and being able to maintain awareness of own professional limitations and knowledge
For this interview assignment, I got the opportunity to interview Jeff Gatlin, MS, LPC, Senior Clinician and Assistant Director at UTSA Counseling Services. Additionally, Jeff recently earned his supervisor title and is now an LPC-S. Jeff talked about becoming interested in counseling first and foremost because he needed a career, and he desired a profession that allowed him to have financial stability, independence, and professional flexibility. Other deciding factors were more personal and included Jeff’s interest and desire to talk with others about subjects that are truly meaningful in life and listening to people’s life stories. This interest stems from early in Jeff’s life when he often received feedback from his peers that he was easy to talk to, receptive, and trustworthy. Jeff completed a one-year internship at the beginning of his career,
Mentoring not only serves in nursing, but in careers such as business and education. The purpose of mentoring is to “promote the newcomer’s career advancement, educational and personal development (Hayes, 2005). I think some qualities I would need as a mentor is communicate clearly, to practice openness and sincerity, be alert for mentor’s nonverbal communication, and listening to the whole message (Zerwekh & Garneau,
Motivation leads to achievements, most of the time when we have a zeal or goal to a life time career, we need a motivational force to achieve that goal. In this assignment I will be looking into what motivated me in studying social care practice. I will also highlight some theories that apply to my interest. I will also discuss how my beliefs and values have sharpened my personal and professional development and how this belief system fit with the ethical framework in social care practice. Motivation is a drive and wants that direct behaviour toward a goal.
Using different strategies will encourage excellence in all we do in my subordinates. By varying my emotional approachs I will demonstrate the core value of integrity and enable my peers to cope with their own emotions. Remaining optimistic and realistic will show service before self to my leadership, a necessary skill in a well rounded transformational leader. Finally, the concept I believe is vital to not only incorporate, but also demonstrate to become an effective transformational leader is the five styles of effective negotiation. Leaders must know when and how to use each style appropriately for any given situation.
