Spending the day with Marie Francis really gave me a true insight on what the day-to-day life is like for a mental health counselor. Before knowing anything about the day of a counselor, I first wanted to know the difference between a counselor and a social work. From what I’ve learned through the course, counseling is an “interpersonal process involving a professional counselor who incorporates a holistic, proactive, preventive, and rehabilitative viewpoint, focusing on facilitating health growth, redirecting unhealthy development, and improving the current quality of life. “ (Erford, 2010) Social workers on the other hand allows the professional to find out the problems the clients are facing and then provide resources that will assist the client in achieving their goals. However Marie sees “counseling to be more a helping position rather than a social worker who enforces rules.” (Francis, 2012)This however seem to be very true because the two share similar skills and training, yet people tend to be confused by their differences.
The working class in the United States at all times has a responsibility for the maintenance of family members who are ill at a varying age of the development continuum. Some workers are in need to take a leave of absence in order to take care of their sick children, parents, or even to take care of them when they are ill. This is where the Family Medical Leave Act comes in for the working American. The main purpose for this act is to balance the demands of the workplace, such as promoting economic stability, and helping to preserve family integrity. Employers on the other hand, are sometimes zealous to have tasks completed, and in so doing their actions may conflict with the welfare of the employees.

I could have taken that and stopped pushing forward, but the very next day; she informed me that she would be leaving our group and if I could prove that I was prepared, I would be promoted in six weeks. Was I lucky to be in the right spot at the right time? I think not. By preparing myself over time, I was able to change my circumstances and be met with the opportunity to fulfill my desire of becoming supervisor. So, in conclusion; to think that I was lucky enough to receive the opportunity to work as a manager for the last seventeen years is preposterous, when in fact I have worked diligently to be prepared for every opportunity that has come my
