Reflection Paper Assignment Instructions
Overview
Examining
your personal and spiritual beliefs is necessary throughout your career as a
counselor. The purpose of self-reflection is to help counselors gain an
understanding of their thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions so that they
do not impose their beliefs on clients. This assignment will help you gain
insight into your beliefs and to help to identify alliance or conflict with the
ACA Code of Ethics. Learning how to work through any conflict because of your
beliefs is important not to harm your client or violate ethical standards. This
assignment allows you to examine and apply steps to address the conflict.
Instructions
After
reading the Daniel (2020) text in its entirety, you will complete a
self-reflective paper evaluating the interaction between your personal or
spiritual beliefs and the counseling professional values as depicted in the ACA
Code of Ethics.The paper should be 3–4
pages in length, APA format, and include at least two references. The two required references are: Daniel (2020)
and ACA Code of Ethics (2014). Additional
references are permitted, but not necessary. This is a
self-reflective paper and should be written in first person. However, please
make sure that your style remains professional. This is not texting, emailing,
or FaceTime.
· Verify
in one sentence that you read the
Daniel (2020) text in its entirety. · Choose
two counseling professional values or codes from the ACA Code of Ethics that are in harmony with your personal or spiritual
beliefs. Do not choose obvious values, but values that maybe were not in harmony
until you progressed in this program or read Daniel’s text. Using the heading: Harmony Between Professional Values and
Spiritual Beliefs, write up to one
page explaining the harmony between the professional values and your
spiritual beliefs. · Using
the heading: Integrating Professional
Values and Spiritual Beliefs, write up to one page explaining how these values and your spiritual beliefs
came into harmony. What was this process for you? How were you challenged to
integrate the values and your beliefs? How did Daniel’s text challenge your
thinking? · Choose
2 counseling professional values or codes from the ACA Code of Ethics that still remain in conflict with your personal or
spiritual beliefs. Using the heading: Conflict
Between Professional Values and Spiritual Beliefs, write up to one page explaining the conflict that
you still have to work through.
· Using
the heading: Actions to Work Through the
Conflicts, write up to one page
reflecting on how you should work through these conflicts and what this process
should entail. · Include
a title page and reference page. The content of the paper should be 3–4 pages. No quotations – you are
expected to interact with the information rather than regurgitate the readings.
Your self-reflection and insight is key to this assignment. When you
have completed your paper, save it as a Microsoft Word document under your name
and assignment title (Example: Doe_J_Reflection_Paper). Submit it via the submission
link in Canvas. Wait until the link indicates that Turnitin has analyzed your
paper and prepared a report. Return to
the Turnitin report and evaluate the report. You will notice that Turnitin often
matches on headings, titles, and references. If you see matches on entire
sentences or paragraphs that are not enclosed in quotation marks, then you have
unintentionally plagiarized. You will need to go back and re-write those
sections in your own words.
Note: Your
assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
