the client. I also was able to learn the importance of knowing my own values, beliefs and things that are important to me and where I stand with those things. So that when placed in a counseling session or therapy session that my values and beliefs are not being forced on the client. Through this course I really understood that being a counselor means being able to have compassion for your clients and putting aside your own beliefs, to make sure that you promote the physical, mental and emotional state of the client. I learned also the importance of being able to work as part of a team when counseling individuals and the importance of community. This course was able to teach me strategic planning decision making when placed in a situation where my client as not completed their therapy and is in need of more services but are facing termination because of financial issues. Overall this course provided the understanding and basis of me being able to refer back to the ethical code, knowing what section to look to and always referring back to it , to make sure that no ethical is being broken and that the clients well being is being adhered to.
