The tone of the group leader was calming and encouraging; his voice felt reassuring and affirming that ultimately empowering by simply sharing his stories. The open format felt genuine in nature and the group appeared cohesive. Reoccurring themes for most speakers were difficulties in identifying their feelings, perceive themselves as completely unselfish and dedicated to the well-being of others. Listening to others sharing their struggles, I began to access my life and codependent tendency that I may exhibit. There is codependency in every relationship; however, my focus was on my relationship with my husband. After some thought, I realized that the relationship with my husband mutually satisfying relationship.

In today’s education world, an essentialist viewpoint is most prominent. This means that student learning should be focused on certain crucial subjects and they should be taught the same way in every classroom in our country. This view has led to the prevalence of standardized testing as a focus of teachers and the Common Core State Standards. Whether or not this is the correct way to teach youth, America agrees that everyone deserves an appropriate education. This is expressed in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Included in ‘everyone’ are students who have been placed in foster care. These students struggle in the world of academics. Sanchez (2004), Goemans (2015), Stone (2007). Before introducing ways that teachers can help
Once the treatment is applied, the chances of the situation ever getting better are terminated completely. Many are not understanding that this is a permanent decision. (Winters1) Though this method eliminates pain and suffering, it also eliminates the individual as well. (To Live Each Day with Dignity4) There are various reasons why one would request this option. Some fear that they are a burden to others, suffer in the future, or will experience a loss of control. Others request this to get away from the physical suffering, spiritual suffering, and psychological suffering. In fact, psychological suffering is the most common request from patients. (Endlink1,2) However, if the idea is somehow vanished from the patient’s mind, the chance of the situation getting better could be increased
Starting college can be one of the best times in young person’s life. However, it may be one filled with apprehension, angst, and confusion. Adjustment to college life is vital for all students, though the manner and amount of adjustment faced by each undergraduate will fluctuate contingent on a student’s upbringing, life-experience, and former education. Consequently, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) community knows this all too well. Therefore, the college counseling center will be offering a series of therapy groups for the incoming freshman that identify as part of the LGBTQ community in order to help them adjust to college life, the separation from home, and the stress of classes.
“Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be” (Pickson n.d.).

A personal goal of mine, as a future counselor, is to become a diverse group leader. I desire to lead groups with cultural sensitivity and not limit members because of ethnicity, gender, religion, class, etc. My goal is to pursue a considerable amount of information on culture and the issues surrounding it, while conducting a therapeutic group. According to The Association for Specialists in Group Work (ASGW), section B.7, Best Practice In Performing, It is the group counselors responsibility to practice cultural sensitivity and seek information regarding diverse and cultural issues by working with group members and actively seeking outside sources (Thomas & Pander, 2008).

Albrecht and Adelman’s study (as cited in Kendall Hunt Publishing Co., 2011) provided a definition of social support as “verbal and non-verbal communication between recipients and providers that reduces uncertainty about the situation, the self, the other, or the relationship, and functions to enhance a perception of personal control in one’s life experience”. Social support is any type of communication that helps an individual feel more secure or certain about a situation and therefore being able to feel that they have control over a situation (2011, Kendall Hunt Publishing Co.). According to Hunt, social support emphasizes the availability of the network of people that provides support, therefore, the presence
In 1991 Norman Garmezy developed a theoretical framework for resiliency. Garmezy (1991) proposed three types of protective factors that make up his theoretical framework, which includes individual characteristics of the individual, a close-knit relationship with the family and lastly, social support and structure outside their immediate family. The primary factor in developing resiliency relates to the person's intelligence and character, and Garmezy (1991) states that resilient youth have above average intelligence. Garmezy (1991) defines the second factor in developing resiliency as one that includes the support of family to help with difficult conditions. The third common factor of resilient youth is external support from institutions (Garmezy, 1991). According to Masten (2001) “resiliency refers to a class of phenomena characterized by good outcomes in spite of serious threats to adaptation or development” (p. 228). Garmezy (1991) considers the intelligence level of an individual and ability to possess the mind power to tackle an adverse situation as one pleases as the core characteristics of a resilient individual. Garmezy (1991) resiliency framework allows student affairs professionals is to examine the strengths of disadvantaged students who are faced with various life stressors, but
Resilience is known as bouncing back from the adversities and bringing in strength to cope to difficulties. Adversities happen at personal, community and organisational level. Resilience allows the person to come out of the adversity, rather than staying with it and to move forward further. This is a way of maintaining positive mental health and maintaining one’s own well being in the midst of adverse conditions. It enables a person to maintain positive health in the midst of challenges (Mowbray, 2011). It is the way of mobilising one’s own personal and community resources in a way to prevent, control or tolerate the adversity and be enhanced by it. It allows for a good performance in the presence of debilitating factors and risks and exploits
