This is really simple and does not need any format whatsoever. It also does not need to have any references. I need help. It is due in about 2 hours but I am working on another project that is due as well and it had some discrepancies in it so I am working on fixing them so I can turn them in on time. I can assist with giving you the information that is needed that you do not have but it is basically a self observation type paper where there is no wrong or right answer.
Write a 500-750 word paper reflecting upon your professional developmental progress as a result of this course. Consider including the following:
- How have your beliefs changed during the practicum? What counseling approaches studied during your coursework at GCU now seem more or less relevant and applicable as a result of the direct client contact you had at your practicum site? You may cite sources from your Counseling Theories courses or other classes.
- What are some additional areas in your professional development that you may want to obtain?
- How have your professional abilities been enhanced at this point in your program?
- How motivated are you to seek out more information on topics discussed in this course?
- Identify your five greatest accomplishments from the practicum. Why are these accomplishments your greatest?
- What contributed to your success?
- Assess your performance across each professional skill contained in your weekly Typhon Hour Logs.
- What are the total number of direct practice and nondirect hours you have achieved in this course?
- What are your next steps for licensure once your practicum is completed?
APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
