I cannot think of anything worse than going to a friend or family member to talk about a problem, only to have them give me advice, or worse a lecture. I find it frustrating, because although I want to talk things through, I ultimately want to solve my own problems. With this in mind, I prepared myself for my first filmed session. As a listener, I imagine that counselling a ‘stranger’ can be difficult, yet I know from experience that working with a friend and college colleague is filled with difficulties, and if I am honest, I did find this session particularly challenging. I can fully appreciate and understand why being a counsellor for a family and/or close friend is not advised.
The worst thing you could possibly do is avoid addressing the issues you and your roommate have. You have to try and talk to your roommate and lay down the law from the beginning. This is something I in particular suck at. I hate confrontation and therefore avoid any kind of conversation with my roommate but you cannot assume that he or she knows that there even is a problem if you have not come out and said it straightforward. What may seem obvious to you may not be so to someone else.
These are very important factors of relationships, and if they aren’t practiced the right way it can lead to the destruction of a good friendship. What is communication? Telling your partner everywhere you go during the day isn’t communication. Because most likely you will bore the person you are talking to. Our day to day life typically isn’t very exciting.
I have personally found that it is more difficult than I thought it would be. It was hard to know if the instructors were going to be in their office at the times they had informed the students. Everything even counseling ran off of a schedule that was hard to work with at times when help is needed for one of the services offered. I did find that some of the services that were available. Being able to ask the instructor questions in person was easier than in email when it came to understanding things that were confusing.
If a patient needs treatment but they are not covered, that may motivate a counselor to place an incorrect billing code on an invoice to get paid for an non-covered service. While the counselor may believe this to be the best thing for the client, it is not ethically or legally allowed. This behavior actually hurts the industry as more regulation will be placed upon the counselor who will have to take more time to prove their compliance. That time they are using to prove compliance is time they are not seeing clients or generating revenue. One aspect of counseling that is very helpful is the licensure that is granted to counselors by the state.
My biggest weakness is an unwillingness to accept my limitations. For example, I often take on too many responsibilities and find myself not being able to do as well as I could in any of them given how overstretched I am. I also have a lot of impatience when it comes to improving things such as how we deliver higher education and need to be willing to accept how slow change can be. Why have you selected psychology as a profession? I did not choose it as a profession as my graduate work is in Higher Education but I like to study psychology in my free time as I think a lot of principles of the field can be applied to making better public policy and improving human
In addition, they may be aware that new guidance has been issued but don’t know how their current way of working needs to change to ensure they provide the best care for patients in line with the guidance. Motivation is a fundamental part of nearly everything we do. External factors can drive motivation and change behaviour, for example, for some carers who are not motivated because they knew that the purpose of certain trainings that are needed to attend are useless due to the reason that not everybody is practicing it in actual field, or maybe due to the fact that it is not paid for the number of hours. External factors can drive motivation and change behaviour, for example, the provision of incentives or penalties imposed as part of regulatory checks. But internal factors, such as
You get more stressed and hurt because you're keeping it private. If you had told them what you are going through, they wouldn't have asked you, which wouldn't make you so stressful. Keeping things private is a very good thing in your life, but there are things you should keep it private and things you should let it go. Sometimes, keeping everything to yourself could lead to hurting your feelings. Privacy is in everyones lives, it's either you choose to keep your stories to yourself or letting it
