Self-reflection and Self-assessment

Self reflection and Self assessment

This course has left an immense impact on my thought process . Through it I have discovered certain things about my self and my inner cravings which I was not aware of before . Hence this course has helped me in bringing closer to my inner self . It has transformed my outlook towards life . Now I care for others as well as for myself , much more than what I earlier used to do . I would like to confess that I immensely liked the teachings and the materials of this course

p There are three very important lessons that I have learnt from this course . The first lesson that is extremely important for the personal and professional well being of a person is to identify one 's objectives in life . If the objective is clear then one 's action also becomes more focussed . Now I have been able to recognize what my goals in life are . I have realized that I want to be of good service to as many people as possible . I think that counseling is a path , which I would like to take to achieve this goal .

Hence just like many of the counselors I too believe that CBT is extremely straightforward and deals with the present instead of the past . Since extensive research has been carried out in this field , as it was evident from this course , I completely trust its effectiveness and would love to use it whenever the situation demands . I also learnt about other important therapies like Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT ) and Reality therapy . Like CBT , REBT and Reality therapy have certain drawbacks . Apart from this all these therapies solve different purposes . Knowledge of all of them would prove to be immensely helpful to me when I would start working in the field of counseling . Since the solution of all the problems is not same , these would be different techniques , which I would use to help people who come to me to get relief from their troubles

The third lesson that I have learnt is that apart from helping others we should never neglect our own well...
