Unit 4 Hn144

...Kaplan University | Unit 4: Biological Development in Adolescence | HN144: Human Behavior and the Environment | | [Type the author name] | 11/12/2013 | Prof: JoAnna Pintar Part A : Reflect on the article Halstead, Richard W. (2000, January). From tragedy to triumph: counselor as companion on the hero’s journey. Counseling & Values, 44(2), 100 This article was very interesting in a way from a counselor’s point of view of a new student struggling with a sleep problem. Right away the counselor assumed that Steve (the student) was struggling with the fear of being a new student on campus and that could be the result of his problem. But little did the counselor know that his issues where based on a larger scale. The counselor found himself going on a hero’s journey with Steve which was going through his unique past. As the story goes on through Steve’s journey I think the counselor learned a lot from the student. In the story it states that Steve has a personal goal in mind that he just wanted to be normal. The counselor on the other hand wanted to help Steve through any issues he might be having. But I don’t think the counselor quite understood Steve’s frustration until the part of the story was shared where Steve started to struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts. Steve took it upon his self during the schools winter break to check himself into a local outpatient group at a local hospital during the break. The counselor then recalls......

As a human service professional you will respect the integrity and welfare of the client at all times. Each client is treated with respect, acceptance and dignity.

Human service professionals will protect the client's right to privacy and confidentiality except when such confidentiality would cause harm to the client or others, when agency guidelines state otherwise, or under other stated conditions. Human service professionals inform clients of the limits of confidentiality prior to the onset of the beginning of services.
