I would perform group and individual therapy sessions weekly, as well as, work with other professionals such as psychologists, teachers, or social workers. This path has more stress and a tendency to overload the workloads, so I would have to learn to manage my stress and workload to avoid future problems. Burnout is common in social work, and being poorly paid will not help motivate workers. So, although this career path requires fewer steps academically, it requires more durability emotionally and mentally. However, I love helping the youth and feel that internal motivation is sufficient enough for
As I grew older I realized that she needed my parents’ attention more than I did and maybe if I had a psychologist to talk to, I would have been able to get through that difficult time in my life. My interest in psychology led me to seek a job at Applied Behavioral Intervention (ABI), where I started working with a child who had autism. I saw firsthand the effects of attitudes and behaviors and how they can impact a situation. This was eye opening and mind blowing. This made me have a greater appreciation for all that my psychology classes were trying to teach me.
As an undergraduate student, I am still a novice in the field of psychology. To improve and become more accomplished in the Teaching and Training pathway, such as the position of a psychology teacher, I could read more journal articles and expand my knowledge of studies, treatment, and terminology. Additionally, an area of needed improvement is my public speaking skill. While I am most comfortable communicating in a one-on-one or group setting, I find my limited experience with public speaking to be a detriment. As a result, I speak quickly and may communicate ineffectively.
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
Most of the time, students blow it off because it seems useless, but in reality it is one of the best ways to transition into college life. Your instructor is someone who knows the university and knows how to get around. You learn information that you will use for the next four years of your life, whether it’s study tips, where to go if you want to change your major, or who to call in case of different incidents on campus, GEP is a class that seems dumb, but I actually had a lot of fun. It was my one class during my freshman year that I looked forward to going to. My favorite
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
I was inspired also by my high school psychology teacher, to become a Doctor in Psychology. I have realized that my dream, is to open up my own practice, and to help other "troubled youth" whom were given up on by everyone else, and to give them a chance as well. I want to be the person to be able to give that help, especially when no one gave it to me. I want to be able to help people who are not fully understood, and to educate others whom do not believe mental illness to be a "real thing". Overall, I believe a Rutgers education would give me the ability to achieve my overall dream in the end, which is of course as stated above, to open up my own practice and to help other troubled youth whom have been given up on.
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
Besides viewing this process as a foundation for future knowledge and abilities, I have been anticipating this stage of gaining deeper and professional knowledge in psychology for a long time. To summarize, this goal is elicited from my passion and enthusiasm for psychology, to remain focused throughout these three years, instead of gaining fame or impress others. After graduation, I want to engage in a job related to psychology, allowing me to serve others by applying the knowledge learnt. It may not need to be anything very great; I just hope to contribute to the society’s wellbeing, whether it is in the clinical setting, corporate world or any other aspects. Most importantly, I hope to raise awareness and acceptance towards mental disorders.
Education is my number one important value in my life at this moment. I realized without my education it will be harder for me to get by in life. For example just to get a bottom level entry job most place require a high school diploma and that is minimum while others require a associates degree. For me to reach my dream job of becoming a child advocate attorney I need to have a 4 year degree with junior doctorate degree on top of that. The reason my dream job is to be a child advocate attorney is because I was once in the foster care system with many good child advocate attorneys and many other not so good child advocate attorneys.
This was one of my fears be for going into college was that I was going to be in debt after. ECC has helped my accomplish at least two of my goals while I was here, get a good education and not have to take out a student loan. The college has also giving me the opportunity to meet some of my best friends and mentors while in attendants
Recently, I began a mission to find a great college to attend. After careful consideration and several reasons, I chose to start my process at Suny Empire State College. I majored in psychology fifteen years ago while attending Long Island University Brooklyn Campus but unfortunately, I did not complete. Instead, I chose to begin a beautiful family. Needless to say, I am not the typical age of a college student.
With the classes I am taking in college, I will be preparing for my future job. In my job, I will be required to write reports and solve many problems/ cases. In college I will be improving my high school education, which will improve my skills for my future job, this meaning, I will he helping improve my community. Now, to discuss money. I do not have a source of income, currently, my parents are paying for my college education.
Psychology was one of my earliest career interests dating back to high school. I would eventually follow my interest and pursue a college degree in this line of study where I obtained a 4.0 in all the courses that were in my major. I also was heavily involved in PSI Chi (The International Honors Society of Psychology) where I served as our chapter’s Vice President. It was due to this passion and success that I was offered a position as an undergraduate Teaching Assistant at SIU. I believe my success and experiences in psychology would allow me to be knowledgeable about the course content and the ability to be seen as a credible source of information to my
The examples shared in class often trigger my self-reflection about my work with patients. I could not agree more with the concepts of suffering and power. I often feel that there is a part of me that wanted to help people because it is often easier to offer help than accepting help. Even though I do not agree with the illustration of mindfulness being broad light while meditation is spotlight, I like other illustrations used in the class. Instead of saying mindfulness as broad light, I would say that mindfulness is a sequence of actions that happen in a snap second, it happens so fast that one is not aware of the serial actions.
