I will draw from the experience I have gained during my work placement, to demonstrate my awareness of the difficulties therein. The Collins Dictionary of Social Work (1995, p. 390) defines a value as, "a belief that something is good and desirable, It defines what is important, worthwhile and worthwhile striving for". According to Beckett and Maynard (2011 p.14) it is imperative to be aware of one's own values and belief systems and where they come from, as they are likely to influence any decisions made. Consequently, social workers need to give priority to their responsibility towards service users, regardless of their own morals and values, as it is highly possible that they may differ. Furthermore, it is important to recognise when there may be a conflict between the two, as it is likely to impinge upon the social worker's ability to concentrate on the service user's needs as opposed to their own.
Personal Model of Helping Akia Forward BSHS/311 December 6, 2012 Gerry MC Farland Personal Model of Helping To make a difference as a Clinician, one must create a personal model of helping. Doing research and understanding the material available is an important part of developing a model of helping that will do some good. My personal model of helping will include parts of two Cognitive Child Development theories, Three Behavioral Child Development theories, Erik Erikson’s Theory of Personality Development, Lawrence Kohlberg’s Theory on Child Development, Alfred Adler’s theory and practices, Strategic therapy, Experiential Family therapy, and a Faith-Based Therapeutic therapy. I will also explain why I chose each theory, advantages and disadvantages of each theory, multicultural ramifications, positives and negatives of my model, and the people my model can help. The two models of helping I will start with are Jean Piaget’s Cognitive Child Development Theory and Lev Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory.

They may have many contributing factors which effect everyday life that require exploration during the counselling process. Different ethnic groups may be driven by ingrained thoughts and beliefs which may be introjected by their parents making some of these abuse issues acceptable within their community. For a therapist to work ethically with abuse and the issues a client may bring to therapy it is important to look into, and be aware of, all these acts of abuse and what effects they can have on a client. There are policies and procedures for cases of abuse and latest policies and procedures regarding safeguarding are intended to be in place to support vulnerable people from abuse. Using my own experiences I hope to explore these issues within this essay and in doing so highlight my awareness of how these issues can affect a client and how therapy may help during the healing process.

This journal article is relevant to the role of a PMHNPs because it contributes to the professional practice and education of PMHNPs by offering evidence that PMNHPs can anticipate to transform themselves from a new graduate to a proficient and expert practitioner. The study can also assist faculty in evaluating program curriculum and outcomes. For example, a few of the responses in the study indicated that practicing PMHNPs believe that competency in psychotherapy took a while to accomplish. Faculty may refer to this finding when advocating for the needs of new graduates with future employers and mentors.
This paper discusses a life experience, for this instance it is a reoccuring dream, and explains what theories can be applied to the experience. It further describes how these theories are use within social service practice. It is important that a social worker is able to identify life experiences and relate them to human development theories in order to link theory with practice. It is also important to understand the theory’s relevance to social service practice to ensure the best outcome for the client or situation. Exploring the human mind goes beyond conscious thoughts and many human development theories relate to thoughts and feelings which remain unknown to the individual.
