Life experience Discussion 3
As the major assignment of this course, you will write a paper integrating learned theories about counseling with your personal values. APA format is required. You may write in first person since this is an opinion paper.
Your paper should be divided into sections as follows:
Cover page–page 1
Body–beginning on page 3 and going through page 11, including a conclusion paragraph.
References: At least 5 references required–textbook, books, and journals (Next to last page).
5. Grading Rubric–the final page
The body of your paper must be organized according to the following content headings (See accompanying template document for visualization):
An definition of counseling and the most essential characteristics of a helping relationship
A detailed explanation of the key elements that must be covered in the first session with a new client and why they must be covered
The theory or theories of counseling which I will seek to learn more about and use in my own practice
At least two techniques from this course and an explanation of how and for what type of client issues I will use them for in treatment
Life experience(s) that will help you as a counselor work effectively with a wide range of clients
Some limitations in my own life experience that might hinder my ability to understand and relate to certain clients
Client populations I do not believe that I would be able to work with and why
Client populations I do believe that I would be able to work with and why
My Thoughts on Counseling
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
