Journal Entry: Changing Roles

For many of you, your role as a forensic psychology professional will differ from the roles of your current or previous jobs/responsibilities. Whether you are/were working, going to school, being a parent, etc., these experiences prepare you in some way for your next role as a professional psychology professional. The transition into the role as a forensic psychology professional will be exciting, interesting, and also challenging. As you begin a new journey, it is important to explore how your current roles and responsibilities in your field experience may differ from pervious roles and responsibilities. It is also important to anticipate any challenges you might experience as you adjust to your roles and responsibilities in your field experience.

The assignment (300–600 words):
 

Write a journal entry that includes the following:

  • A description of your current or prior role in your job and/or in life.
  • A description of your role at your field experience setting.
  • An explanation how the roles are different and what might be particularly interesting and/or challenging for you in your field experience role.

Support your Journal Entry with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are asked to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.

PLEASE add this INFORMATION TOGETHER TO CREAT THE JOURNAL ENTRY

IOP 6-9 GROUP

Internship -Footprints to recovery 

My description of my current role at my job as well as in my home mother as well as a paraprofessional I work with children with disabilities they are all wheelchair-bound. They depend on me I am their eyes and ears while they are at school . they are unable to walk or feed themselves or change themselves this is our responsibility they are 100% depended on the staff once they leave there home to take care of them . My role in my filed experiences setting is to listings give them positive praise and be supportive and helpful . this is what a typical day in group is like . HELLO, I had to switch my internship time to 6 to 9. I got two times out of a week for three hours because of work. When I journal, it will not break any HIPA laws or OSHA. I will briefly explain some of the conversations in the group. Today’s group started with a total of four gentlemen. The topics discussed were how their day was? WHAT WERE THE HIGHLIGHTS AND NEGATIVE ATTRIBUTES OF YOUR DAY?

HOW DID THEY DEAL WITH THEM? 

WHAT LEGAL ISSUES HAVE ACCORD DUE TO YOUR ADDICTION?

HAVE THEY HAD ANY CRAVINGS? IF SO, WHAT TOOLS WERE USED OR PUT IN PLACE TO BLOCK THEM. How does your addiction affect your relationships? Do they look at you the same? IS THERE TRUST Issues? How supportive is your spouse or significant other? How supportive are your friends? For one response, they stated their friends said they did not have a problem. It was then asked how you felt about your friend’s response. How do you feel about confiding in your friends (client makes me feel worthless and want to go out and drink)? The counselor then tries to give the client positive ways to respond, and if he chooses not to, it is ok too. As the next few weeks go by, I will be posting at least one response to all the questions that were asked in the group.
