My placements consisted of hematology, clinical neuroscience, acute mental health, complex care and a medicine unit. In looking back over my assessments for these placements I have been able to put together a list of my strengths and areas for growth and from this list I have created my learning plan for my first year of practice. Strengths. Upon reviewing past reflections and feedback from tutors and peers, my strengths include “effective communication with all appropriate parties.” I am reflective and therefore identify areas of strengths and limitations and areas that need improvement; I also seek out constructive feedback regarding my practice (A. Ilic, personal communication, DATE) According to my preceptor last semester I demonstrates a sound understanding of self-care, self-reflection and work life balance. I also have an “understanding of the components of the nurse patient relationship, by maintaining an open and professional relationship with the patients.” I am also “demonstrated self-direction and initiative” (B. Mahy, personal communication, DATE).

As stated by Trotter (2013), “The Collaborative Family Work model draws particularly on three key principles: problem-solving…pro-social modelling…and role clarification” (p. 54). Skilled welfare practitioners can provide assistance to clients experiencing difficulties within their family dynamic. Trotter’s (2013) Collaborative Family Work model offers strategies working with families and involuntary clients, with the emphasis of collaboration between practitioner and family members in developing strategies for learning new skills to improve their lives and situation. The model also prioritises the choice of goals which are set by the family members to resolve issues through therapy using strategies such as Trotter’s (2013) RIDGES process which
I am in my third year of nursing and I am currently working in a hospital on an Orthopedic Neurological Trauma Unit. I collaborate with patients to identify the prominent health issues they are experiencing and advocate to ensure the care they receive is the most effective for their healing process. Patient interaction, learning new skills and evidence based practice, and being hands on with patient care are the benefits of my job that I enjoy the most. I form a bond with these patients and listen to their personal story to ensure that I give care individualized for each patient. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I can connect with patients of various age ranges and diagnoses by applying these

I realized that leaderships is what I like, and what I'd like to keep doing. I want to be able to combine my current leadership skills with the lessons I've learned from the challenges I've overcome, to grow and be of something greater than my past. A big part of my life was raising myself basically in DSS. Having to jump from home to home and learning to adapt to different environments, and personalities. My first semi stable environment being Epworth's children's home, where I stayed for about 3 years.
Over the past one and half month, the class of PDE 502 (Counselling and Career Education) has taught me some major lessons for life in dealing with the clients in response to their emotional needs. The role of a counsellor is not unlike that of a friend where by it is nurtured by being in each other’s company, talking over everyday issues and sharing feelings. However, what sets a counsellor apart is their experience and the ability to apply counselling theories and techniques to assist people in gaining awareness, insight and explore ways of solving their own issues. The purpose of this reflection is to reflect upon the use of counselling skills, which I have applied in the role-play with the goal of establishing healthy rapport building.
I had to re-evaluate myself, as well as my career, and that is when I came across social work. As a social worker, I was going to be able to work with kids in every different type of environment, as well as impact the kids which is what I always wanted to do. As a career goal in social work for the five years following graduation would be to work in an agency where I will be most needed and most productive. As a social worker, I not only want to help children I also want to make a difference in their lives, homes, and the system in general. I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering.
As a first year student nurse I understood the importance of communication within practice placement and in our day-to-day lives. As a second year student I feel that I have more awareness on the significance of communication. Metaphorically I see communication as the root of a tree and from it springs essential skills that without communication one would not be able to achieve; for example, compassion, empathy, unconditional positive regard, congruence, self-awareness and it maintains professionalism. When we amalgamate all of these we create a specialist service for those who we care for (Baughan & Smith, 2008). I believe that people can pick up on how people are feeling without having to say a word, Egan (1998) and Rogers (1995) concur.
