My short-term career goals are to complete my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, become a Licensed Professional Counselor, and provide trauma counseling in either a private practice or community-based setting. As a graduate student, my primary goal is to learn a wide range of techniques so that I can develop a therapeutic style that is effective, meaningful, and empirically supported. Counseling approaches such as Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy were all compelling to me when I completed Theories of Counseling as part of my Psychology degree. Elective courses offered through the CMHC program such as Theory and Practice of Reality Therapy and Body/Mind seem fascinating and I would love to learn to incorporate these concepts into my future practice. Additionally, counseling techniques such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy are areas I plan to learn more about as I progress through my education. Additionally, I am curious about learning to work with a therapy dog to help my future clients feel more comfortable
I’m applying to this program because I want to pursue a career in college student development in a program that gives its students a wide variety of hands on experiences. I’m looking for a program that combines traditional classroom teaching with the opportunity for multiple internships and practicums. Additionally, I have grown to find a home at Appalachian State and I would like to continue my education at this university.
I am intrested in gaining my Masters (MS) in Psychology to extend my knowledge within this field and make an impact in society. Graduate school will llow me to understand the human mind and how they all function individually. I aim to teach Psychology and become a Academic advisor at a collegiate level. While choosing a path during my undergraduate studies, I knew that anything I decided to do would make a impact in society and that has become my passion. While taking a few Psychology classes during my undergraduate studies, I was very intrigued with my class Social Psychology as it seemed to involve both Sociology being my major and Psychology. I m intrested in helping the community
People always say, New year, New me, but they never have actual goals that they achieve. I want to achieve three things this year, not changing me but changing what I do. I want to become a top pitcher in my 14u comp. league. I want to be able to bench at least 120+, by the very end of the year. I also want to achieve a higher GPA from the next few quarters throughout the year. I want a 4.0. I feel like these are very achievable goals and I am ready to go through 2017 with an open mind on achieving them.
What are your occupational goals? Have you ever thought about how you are going to achieve those goals? Did you create a documented strategy? I have, and I would like to take this opportunity to trace out my path to achieve that dream job. Since I was a young boy, I knew that I wanted to work with computers. I have always been able to adapt quickly to new technology and troubleshoot technical issues. The Information Technology (IT) field like so many others require a College degree, but that is not all it takes to achieve that dream job. You must also possess professional skills and strengths beyond your degree. In addition, to enjoy that dream job you must like who you work for. Planning my career can be summed up into three different
It has been 10 years passed since last time I entered in college as a freshman, and now, at the end of 2017, I decide to go back to college for pursuing a new major and reaching a new objective of career path. All of these will start from Fullerton College.
“Sport is the force that unites and empowers us to be better, no matter how you look, what you believe or what language you speak.” These words of Olympian Simone Biles illustrate my life-long passion for sports and the science behind it. I had been an athlete all my life and planned on continuing my track and field career at the collegiate level before a critical injury switched my focus from athletics to academics. When I began my studies at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, I knew my future would involve helping athletes grow to their fullest potential in strength, athleticism, and overall health. Having majored in Health Science with a focus in Health and Wellness Promotion and a minor in Nutrition, I would now like to concentrate on Strength and Conditioning.
My primary goal is to help make the UCF student body experience an excellent one by protecting students’ rights. College is some of the best times of our lives and it is important that everyone get to enjoy their time here at UCF. Some of us will need guidance on how to navigate the college experience here at UCF and our student body is one of a kind where we make a large university feel like a close knit community. I want to make sure that we all get to experience the best of UCF by making sure student rights are protected and that students understand those rights.
My short-term career goals are to complete nursing school, pass the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX), and become a registered nurse. I start at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing this fall; I am expected to graduate in the spring of 2018. I am interested in becoming a pediatric nurse at first. My long-term career goals would be to specialize in either pediatrics or neonatal nursing.
My mother battled mental illness during her life. Unfortunately she lost her battle in September 2013. Since her surprising death I have soul-searched and researched ways to help others like my mother.That introspection has brought me to your program, Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling.
I know that the sky is the limit when it comes to nursing fields but I have a sincere interest in mental health. I thoroughly enjoyed my clinical day at the Pavilion although I did recognize that the Nurses spend a lot of time charting which depleted my interest a bit. However, I do know that you can work in other settings I can work in especially if I continue my education to a master’s or doctoral level. Becoming a Psychiatric Mental Health Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (PMH-APRN) would allow me to prescribe certain medications (depending on the state’s law I live in) and administering psychotherapy. (American Psychiatric Nurses Association, 2015) However, these are potential long-term goals! Let’s talk about short-term.
However, the science of Epigenetics has linked wellbeing and health with our environment. I have a personal tie to this concept given that it impacted my sister. My family and I migrated from Iraq to Canada when I was 13 years of age. Coincidently, within one year of our settlement, my 18-year-old sister at the time started to show symptoms of schizophrenia and consequently was diagnosed with the disease. While I dig deeper and deeper into the subject, Epigenetics supports my theory that the transition had exposed my sister to a deeper psychosocial adversity which exploited her genetical predisposition to the disease. I am confident however that with the scientific research and development of epigenetics, scientists may be able to find ways to protect against heritable diseases and predispositions. We may ultimately take on an impactful roll in human development through epigenetic
