OTHER PROFESSIONAL CONSIDERATIONS Professional practice courses provide students with the opportunity to practice counseling skills under supervision. A successful student will be open to personal growth, become proficient at giving and receiving feedback, abide by ethical standards, and pay attention to their own wellness. Personal Growth & Wellness During professional practice experiences, students will encounter people and situations that will personally affect them in both positive and negative ways. This is a normal process in the journey of becoming a counselor. By being open to these experiences and learning from mistakes, students will become more capable and effective counselors. It is equally important for students to become aware of their beliefs and values and how these affect the counseling process, including the counseling relationship. Being inflexible in one’s beliefs and values can impact effectiveness as a counselor. Students are free to believe what they wish, but must be aware of the possible limits these beliefs may have on their work as a counselor. Participating in personal counseling is one way to achieve personal growth. Many students choose to invest in their professional future by receiving their own counseling. Graduate students lead busy lives! Many students are juggling numerous roles, such as student, spouse/significant other, parent, child, employee, and community/professional leader.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
