Norton states, “In the social services sector, where there are often too few resources and too many people in need, leaders constantly struggle with decisions that test their values.” (Northouse, Introduction to Leadership, 2012) In my role, I would be setting an example for everyone, and that includes my employees and the people that you serve. I would be just one face in the company and want to ensure that it is a positive one such as by being just, fair, respectful and honest. I believe one should not only do what feels right, but what is right. I think by having the desire to do good would be a guiding force to lead me into a field that wants to help others, and you are not helping others if you are not making choices that will ultimately help
Introduction: In the growing field of occupational therapy, there are many issues that come about that are of ethical concern. Occupational therapists work to help patients achieve a self-sufficient and satisfying life through the use of assessment and treatment. They help patients who may be suffering from a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder and work to help develop, recover, and maintain skills of daily living. Since this field is very hands on and patient oriented, there are ethical concerns that are brought about in almost all areas of practice. One of the most concerning ethical issues is working on a skill that is outside the OT scope of practice.
As a social worker, values are important for us to fully engage with our clients. Building rapport may not as easy if we did not apply any values that are suitable or accepted by our clients. Cynthia (2014) agreed that knowledge and skills are not enough if there are no values and moral as those three elements are crucial for the profession itself. There are many values that social worker could
This condition helps people get the most out of their counselling session and in turn this helps them reach their full potential as they feel valued as the counsellor accepts them for who they are. Congruence is also known as genuineness and according to Rogers “it is the most important attribute in counselling due to the way that it underpins the experiencing of unconditional positive regard and empathy”. Seligman (2006) states that if a counsellor’s body language does not reflect what they are saying, clients will pick up on this and it will reflective on the counsellor client relationship as trust could be lost. Congruence means the counsellor needs to be real and
This process is important because counselor advocacy extends itself by influencing policy at various levels and enhances components that affect the practice of clinical mental health counseling. Advocacy is important because it works to remove barriers and challenge social injustices that impede the wellness for clients and society (Kiselica & Robinson, 2001). For example, supporting counselor advocacy is important because counselors can benefit by acknowledging and understanding that there must be a multiple systems approach to counseling. At the local level, counselor advocacy is both necessary and important for the purpose of building coalitions and collaborating to inform various societal entities about the benefits of mental health services and its impact. At the state and national level, counselor advocacy work can inform particular legislative bodies about the particular types of impacts that would occur if there is limited or a lack of mental health resources available to particular populations (Kiselica & Robinson,

I am passionate about social work simply because I want to help people. Social work is an excellent profession for coming in contact with many different types of people and helping them to overcome their adversities. Specifically I am interested in the mental health field of social work. Why social work in the mental health field is important to me, the definition of mental illness, the history of mental health in social work, and what it means to be a social worker in the mental health field are the topics I will discuss in my paper. Mental health in social work is important to me because it is something I can closely relate to, although I did not always see it that way.
