This week I assisted someone with filling out an application for the counseling center. I thought the experience went well. When I assisted the patient with filling out the application I noticed that the application was long and tedious. I think being able to assist patients with completing an application is beneficial for patients who cannot read or understand the questions. I also communicated with a person that was experiencing anxiety. The patient was crying in my office because she was experiencing anxiety about her diabetes. I discussed with the patient some of the challenges that she was experiencing in her life. I felt that I did a good job with assisting the person and calming her down. I also walked the patient up to the counseling center because she was interested in communicating with someone on a long term basis. At the counseling center the patient picked up an application which I thought was a good solution to her problem. I think I am getting more comfortable with communicating with patients on my own.
Evidence Based Practice Shallan Jones Walden University Evidenced Based Practices Counseling and delivering services under the “best practice” should always be the goal of a practitioner. In a field such as counseling, where the lives of others are being impacted, making specific choices on how to deliver services, and making a choice to choose one form of therapy over another is pertinent to not only the successful rehabilitation of a client, but to also ensure the longevity of yourself as a practitioner and as a counselor. Practicing techniques or alternative forms of therapy which are based off of literature which is not evidenced-based can lead a practitioner to unethical practices which can eventually mean revocation of
The Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH) oversees a comprehensive, practice-research network, designed to help directors of university and college counseling centers (UCC) monitor clinical trends, enhance treatment effectiveness, and advocate for additional resources (McAleavey, Castonguay, Hayes, & Locke, 2014). Through this initiative, standardized measures are used to collect data from UCCs across the United States. One of these, the Counseling Center Assessment for Psychological Symptoms - 34 (CCAPS-34; Locke et al, 2012), was constructed as a brief multidimensional outcome measure, assessing seven clinical subscales including depression, eating concerns, alcohol abuse, generalized anxiety, hostility, social anxiety, and academic

3. What are your personal results after taking the Career Decision-Making Styles That I collect information about different alternative and go over them. It said that my decisions seem analytical; I evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each option. It said that I take a long time to make a decision, which is true in many circumstances. I feel that I can be an indecisive person sometimes. It also identified that I want to be the one responsible for my decisions and don’t try to transfer the decisions to others. I do like to consult family about my career decisions but I feel that I don’t let them make the decision and I take responsibility for the decision I make. Additionally it identified that I do not feel the need to please others and don’t make decisions based on others expectations. Furthermore it said that I am willing to compromise and that I seem ot understand the limitations of reality and I am not be able to have all of what I want. In summary it say that I should collect information and invest time and energy into the decision making process. I should consult those closest to me when making a decision, along with, consulting with professionals already in the field. I need to be aware of how my decisions can impact others. Remembering these will help me during the career decisions making process in the
In the state of Illinois, a counseling student will need education at the Master’s or Doctorate level. Illinois does not require counselors to graduate from programs of a particular accreditation, but the process of getting licensed is easier, if a person chooses to do so. If the student is in a program that is CACREP or CORE-accredited, the student has met the requirements. The students are required to complete 24 semester hours that can be taken either full of part-time (Counselor-License, 2017).
As mentioned earlier, my field agency does not provide family counseling services to the fox valley area. I believe that this organization is in need of more programs on behalf of families/caregivers. Offering respite services to these individuals may give them only temporary relief. Caring for an individual with a developmental disability may cause a family member or caretaker psychological and emotional distress. Family counseling services could enhance the self-advocacy skills of family members or caregivers. It could enhance their self-advocacy skills in relation to how they take care of their selves and others in their families. Social workers use research evidence to inform practice.
