Discussion 3: Course Reflection
This has been one of the most interesting courses I have taken. It has been an insightful course that opened me to the real world of counseling because it touched on the issue of career counseling, which occur often when dealing with clients. From this course, learning about career issues was one of the most surprising things. This is because when dealing with clients, I have always observed that clients have issues related to their work but I did not consider it an issue that required my intervention.
