I learned that Occupational Therapy is not a career path I wanted to pursue because the responsibilities and are involved with Occupational Therapy does not seem like something that I would enjoy doing everyday. The variety of customers that came in was interesting and sometimes was very enjoyable, but for the most part I thought the job was very quiet and tamed for me. I found out I might enjoy a career that is mostly predictive, but something new happens every once in a while to keep things interesting. This contributed to the advancement of my career goals by helping me realize the type of work environment I feel would fit me the best and the job shadow also helped me figure out that even though Occupational Therapy can be rewarding and you are helping a wide variety of people, this career path does not suit me. There are other jobs out there that give me the opportunity to help people in other ways, as well as suiting my needs environmentally as well.
The part of the article that supports occupational therapy is the entire part. The article really encompasses all the aspects of occupational therapy in the setting of home health. The study from their method (from the participants, the instruments, the design, the procedure) shows that therapy in the home have benefits in cognitive abilities and in their ADL’s for people who had a stroke. The benefits are not just towards the patients, but they also improve the quality of life for the caregivers, which means decreased healthcare costs.
However, I thoroughly enjoyed the read because it was both short and informative. The theme and overall idea of the book was straightforward and easy to understand. Anyone willing to make his or her workplace more successful, have more positive interactions, increase the strength of personal relationships, or working on bettering their health should read this book. Specifically, I recommend this book to teachers, leaders of companies, managers, and those having trouble in their marriage. How Full Is Your Bucket serves as a motivational and informative read on how to better not only your health, but your job satisfaction and personal
This paper explains different lessons that I have learned throughout the course. Currently, I am better knowledge-wise than I was before undertaking this course especially the Grantham experience. One aspect that I have learned is how people behave around the world. Human beings tend to have a natural fear of failure (Rippin, 2015).
The two essays I chose to revise were my rhetorical analysis and my position essay. I chose the rhetorical analysis for the polished revision and the position essay for the strategic revision. I chose both of these works because I thought they were two that could be most improved upon and would then be my best work from this course. I think my rhetorical analysis was the most enjoyable essay for me to write, and the one I put the most effort into, although it did have some flaws. Because of this, I didn’t make any major changes to it, just a few changes to make it more sharper and flow better.
Alongside with PE, I am studying Applied Science. These subjects are very similar in the first AS year, and they complement each other very much. This is because a big part of AS PE is Physiology and Anatomy. I understand that anatomy is the sector of science concerned with the bodily structure of humans, and other living organisms. But this would mostly be in relation to humans and their bodily structures, as a sports therapist I would use this knowledge to help improve your client/patients’ physical fitness and health.
This week I had the opportunity to spend some time in both the OR and Endoscopy unit. Going into the practice days I was excited and optimistic about what I was going to take away from the experience, as I considered my possible future in working in the operative setting. However, by the second day of practice, I realized that I wasn’t overly excited about either of the units and that the expectations I had set out, didn’t quite match up like I had hoped. Even though I don’t feel as though nursing in either of the units is for me, I was able to take away new knowledge that I believe has enhanced my overall nursing practice.
It is a task that perhaps people are not comfortable with from the beginning, yet as one progresses, so will their writing. In order for me to have developed the few strengths I acquired in my writing took quite some time, but there is still plenty of improvement I need in order to become a better writer. The same also applies to the challenges that I have yet to convert into strengths, but with the proper mindset and dedication I know that I can and will better the difficulties I face in writing. The CAPS method is one that I know for a fact will help better my skills, and will be a method that I will use in any future writing assignments. This method will truly help in the manner in which I can further organize and review any
Despite the fact that those readings do give them the wisdom upon things they would never think of, it doesn’t interest them enough to think deeply about. Topics such as sports, fashion, will attract the young minds because “they satisfy an intellectual thirst more thoroughly than school culture, which is pale and unreal” (Graff 248). Talking about something a person has a strong passion about will help them create better arguments which is a skill. However, how is that possible if schools find it better to focus on subjects that interest them rather interest the students who are learning it (Graff 245). To do something like that is pointless because time and resource is being wasted on a group of people who have no fascination with what is being taught.
I do not know a lot about these Halfway Houses, but I did get a basic understanding of what their purpose is. Just from doing some basic preliminary research I am finding more negatives than positives because halfway houses are only effective if they are ran the correct way. Furthermore, it takes a lot of self-discipline from the owner and the people participating. Hopefully, I can find more statistics about people who have gone through these halfway houses and read about their personal experiences. Also, I want to find out more is the cost examples being does it cost more in the beginning and pay off in the long run?
The ongoing process of striking a balance between one’s work and demands of life, including marital status have become a challenge for most professionals. So, in the spirit of being part of the solution, I took some time to compile some of the fundamental lessons I’ve learned to date as well as the best of the advice I’ve gotten from experts. These lessons are not rules or absolutes they’re a snapshot of what’s worked for me so far and food for thought. However, the two op-ed pieces by David Brooks and the Young Money chapters caution us to the value in maintaining a work and life balance.
The myer-briggs assessment was fairly accurate and taught me many things I did not know about myself. I was very surprised to read how detailed each trait was described and how it fit my personality in real life. I could relate to many things mentioned about the people with ISFJ personalities. I learned that although I am an introvert, I can connect well with other people much better than other introverts. The type of friend I am considered to be is very loyal and although I may be closed off and protective in the beginning after I can trust you I can be a very trustworthy.
“I’ve been affected in a positive way by people outside of my culture because they not only accept me for me, but to go as far by teaching me about different cultures. More importantly, I have grown to value my culture and for the people that are in my life and how I as an individual am a great representation of my culture. As far as being affect adversely, I haven’t been. All in all, I enjoyed this interview simply because I went in not knowing much of the Hispanic culture, while leaving out I am knowledgeable of the Hispanics. Not only learning new things
