I critically reflected on the practical working arrangement during the placement, which looked in to the caseload the student can have and the complexity of the work which will be subject to review. We (Practice Assessor and the student) discussed our ethical responsibilities and statutory duties to maintain confidentiality, accountability. We also committed to recording information per statutory data protection and agency data management procedures and protocols as well as to critically reflect on the practice
Explain the importance to children’s holistic development of Speech, language and communication This development is important for children’s holistic development as this will help the children to socialise and help them express what they like and need, this will get them to have more sense about the world. If the child can communicate this will help them with their confident and self-esteem levels as they can talk about how they feel.it is important for children to use their own language skills and not to listen to other all the time and this could put their development back. Adults should praise children a lot so they have the encouragement try new things but it is important you adults to give them feedback so that they can learn from right and wrong. If some
Furthermore, following both Bruffee’s and Dewey’s beliefs, I have gained further appreciation for the group work I had done in the past. Group learning was imperative for my growth as an individual in a society where working with others is inevitable, and an essential ability. Knowing this, I am going to communicate this as much as I can to any students I encounter who are anti-group
In order to accomplish group competency, I will need to continue psychoeducation in counseling, attend conferences, and experience group counseling first hand. Keeping my education current and relevant will guide me to new understandings and the competency needed to be a therapeutic counselor. Attending conferences will lead me to further education and new findings. The art of practicing group counseling will allow me to learn from my experiences. All of these ways to accomplish competency will strengthen my appreciation for group counseling (Killacky & Hulse-Killacky, 2004).
Part of the play and art therapy sessions would consist of drawings, clay works and playing with toys to determine the cause of disturbed behaviours. Parent- child bonding would also be encourage during sessions this is to improve family communication and to allow parents to understand why children exhibits behavioural issues. It is also important to that during sessions parents discuss their thoughts that they see in their children to understand the importance of play in children and parents to be able to spend quality time with their children.

In addition to teaching empathy, it also teaches children how to overcome peer challenges and solve problems in a healthy and peaceful way. This is a skill children will use throughout their education and well into their adulthood as the enter into careers working with colleagues. After reading this story, children may be able to reflect on how each crayon felt and why to better understand where that character was coming
Eliana Gil was an excellent example of the use of play therapy. The case examined the benefits of using play when working with children for the entire family. The approach that Dr. Gil used was so effective that it is clear that it would be beneficial for many families looking for counselling in the future. I liked Dr. Gil’s approach, but if I had to change one thing I would likely just change the type of play to give it more direction toward the anger management and behavioural issues that Sharon was describing as the concerns for her son in the
I can also compare my strengths and weaknesses to make a personal development plan to provide myself with motivation but this can also allow me to deliver a high quality service to the children and their parents during transitions, such as; delivering empathy, coping mechanisms and education. Consistency is key and I will be consistent with my behaviours and delivery to help the children progress and reach their full potential therefore I will continue carrying out observations to keep parents informed of their child’s progress when beginning school and throughout the year. I believe I have learned from my chosen theme on transitions. Beginning my essay I was nervous writing about transitions and this scared me from investigating different transitions that occur for children and how to support them. When I began to think of my own practice and investigate websites it give me a foundation to complete the essay but to also apply changes to my own
Throughout play adults can support children in various ways for example by looking at their interests while playing and also recognising their needs. While watching the children adults look at various tips to understand each child individually. Firstly they look at whether the child is interested in the play for example looking at whether they seem ‘away with the fairies or engaged’. This is important for a child to improve throughout their child hood. Therefore if they are not engaged then the adults have to come up with another way for child to learn the same skills as other children without separating them from everyone to make them feel different.
I have made a promise to myself that I would work hard when I can, keep my grades up in school, practice hard topics, and study daily. Whenever I have an idea, or imagine something in my mind, I write it down or change it. As a person, I chose this path because I really wanted to go through it. I am proud to have accomplished many of my goals. I hope to learn more about the career I want and fulfill many of my goals.
