In particular, in the week five assignment you will reflect on your goals for your counseling skills/approach, goals for the session, mock client goals, personal strengths, mock client strengths, areas for improvement, progress, and multicultural awareness. To clarify, you will reflect on your session in your week four assignment, you do not need to reflect on your session here. However, when you submit your Yuja recording of your counseling demonstration to the discussion board area as an initial post, you will include a brief session descriiption and time stamps for when you used your skills. Students will submit: 1) Recorded counseling demonstration session 2) Session descriiption 3) Skills time stamps Recorded Counseling Demonstration Session Week 5 students will use Yuja to record/upload a 25-30 minute mock session. Students will request that a colleague or acquaintance over the age of 18 (no family members) assist them with practicing their counseling skills. Students will request that this volunteer practice client be willing to play a “mock client/character” (not themselves) that represents a client with whom you wish to work (consider the setting- clinic, hospital, etc. and the issue[s]) in the future. It is highly recommended that students select a volunteer practice client familiar with the population in which the volunteer practice client’s character maintains membership. Sessions must be a minimum of 25-minutes-long, but no longer than 30-minutes. Students will record a between 25-30 of a session with their practice client. Students will then transcribe the full session (word for word-include both the counselor and mock client statements) using the example transcriipt template. Transcriipts, while time consuming, are a vital piece to developing counseling skills and techniques. Transcriipts usually take 4-5 times as long to create as the actual taped portion, so please keep this in mind for these assignments (in other words, do NOT wait until the night before to do this assignment). Transcriipts should be created using a word processor (i.e., Word, Pages, Google Docs) in landscape mode. Create a table consisting of 5 columns (Client, Helper, Skill Identified, Reflection, and Alternative Response). Every box of the transcriipt table should be filled in, even if you think you had the best possible response, come up with an alternative response. Further explanation of creating transcriipts will be discussed thoroughly in class. When, where, and how to Submit? Click on the assignment title "Week 5 Transcriiption. Then, on the next page, click on browse my computer, then find the word document that you wrote your assignment in and attach the file. After attaching the file, remember to click submit.
