Walden University Working with Children and Adolescents Discussion

Directions:

For this post, review the media Child and Adolescent Counseling, and consider your strengths and limitations related to working with children and adolescents. Think about how your strengths and limitations may or may not impact the counseling process.

Post a brief description of the population and one child or adolescent issue (i.e., social, emotional, behavioral) with which you might be interested in working and explain why. Then, describe one professional strength that may contribute to your effectiveness in working with this population. Finally, explain why it is important for you to assess your strengths and limitations as a clinician working with children and adolescents before working with this population. Be specific and use examples to illustrate your points.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the week’s resources.
