Complete APA ReferencesIntroductionHuman services professionals are drawn to the field for many different reasons. Regardless of how one enters human services, it operates on five important values that serve as the guiding framework and drive the work done to help others. Acceptance, tolerance, individuality, self-determination, and confidentiality are the values that guide professional behavior and service delivery. Understanding these values is critical in becoming an effective helper.Toggle DrawerHide Full IntroductionIn addition to these core values, the research has clearly defined suggested characteristics that are needed to be an effective helper. However, to be effective in the work that is done to create change, professionals need to have an understanding of themselves and their values first. Without this understanding of how personal values, biases, and opinions impact the helping situation, the helping environment is ineffective. Being able to create a neutral helping situation where a client feels they are heard, valued, and protected when vulnerable is necessary for effective helping to occur.This week you will embark on a self-assessment journey challenging you to look at who you are and the impact this might have on how you develop professionally. The information you obtain about yourself will be important as you continue to develop your skills to become an effective helper.Week 1 – Assignment 1 – Human Services Values – 250 WordsReflect on the human services values described in this unit’s reading in An Introduction to Human Services, addressing the following:·         Which human services value is the most difficult for you to practice? Include an example of a situation that encompasses that value and why it would be difficult for you to use it.·         Which human services value is the most important to you and why?·         How might your understanding of the values that guide practice help you determine your future professional development needs?Response GuidelinesRespond to two of your peers, providing an additional example from your experience that encompasses the value that they identified. Provide two additional recommendations that they have not considered.Week 1 – Assignment 2 – Reflection: Self-Assessments – 250 WordsIn this unit’s studies, you took several self-assessment inventories presented in readings from Issues and Ethics in the Helping Professions in order to provide you with a profile of your strengths and weaknesses.Provide a summary of the self-assessment inventories you completed and answer the following:·         What most surprised you?·         From the client’s perspective, how might your weaknesses interfere with the helping process?·         How will what you learned determine your future professional development needs?Response GuidelinesReview the summary and recommendations of two peers and:·         Provide two additional recommendations that they have not considered.·         Provide two additional areas of impact their weaknesses might have on the helping process.Examples of other student post assignments 1:1st Student:ABSTRACTThe word “value” and what people value may be different from one individual to another. But in the helping profession, value should always be defined and directed towards the customer (Porter, 2010). This is because it is the customer that is being served that will be affected by whatever human service value a professional believes is most important. The customer is always at the center of the helping relationship.HUMAN SERVICES VALUEAccording to Woodside and McClam, (2014) acceptance, tolerance, respect for individuality, confidentiality and self-determination are all values that guide the practice of the profession of human services. To this writer, the most difficult of these values will have to do with confidentiality. According to the National Association of Social Workers (2008), social workers and human services professionals should protect the confidentiality of all information obtained in the course of professional service. But often times, this writer goes back home to discuss client’s issues with his family, which is contrary to the rules and a bad practice. This is because one never knows where divulged information may end up. Acceptance is however the most important service values to writer, because it embraces in totality the good and not so good aspect of the client. Demonstrating acceptance towards the client will surely make the individual more comfortable and willing to fully participate in the helping relationship.CONCLUSIONThe understanding of the values that guide practices will surely help this writer to develop not only future professional needs, but also personal needs. This is because these values, while being good tools that will make one become successful on the job, adhering to the values in personal life will also surely bolster the relationship with families and friends.ReferencesNational Association of Social Workers, NASW, (2008).

(2014). An introduction to human services (8thed.). Stamford, CT: Cenage Learning. ISBN-13: 97812857499072nd StudentAbstractAttitudes and values have been in circulation for years. Values guide and influence attitudes and behaviors. Ethics and beliefs can sometimes bring on added problems and sometimes can be very beneficial within the helping profession. However, if professionals are not ready to confront differences, then several dilemmas may arise in the field of practice.A Difficult Human Service ValueWithin the human service field the helper should offer assistance and remember that each individual is unique. The individual is depending upon the helper to use their knowledge, values and skills in order to assist them with their presenting problems (Woodside & McClam, 2015). Having to make decisions, as a plan of action in practice can sometimes become very challenging, however, the value of self-determination can sometimes bring about conflict. So as a Professional, the learner would not push his views upon the client but try to suggest other avenues that may guide the client to a better outcome. Moreover, in the end, I do realize that choices are the desires of the client, and the client must live with their choices.  As according to Boer & Fischer (2013) values are basic motivational orientations that guide actions and evaluations including social attitudes, while understanding and predicting the type of social attitudes that follow from and are guided by values.Most Important Human Service ValueIt is widely believed that our attitudes and sociality are guided by what one considers as important in life-that is, by our values (Boer, & Fischer, 2013).  Confidentiality is a value characteristic that should always be upheld and kept, due to respect, dignity and honor. According to Cottrell, Neuberg, &Li (2007) the authors use an imagery of imaging that if the world was perfect, would society still choose some individuals over others and could we trust that individuals would highly value others. Somehow for example: the ideology would be an argument similar to theMatching Client and Counselorsituation according to Corey, Corey, & Callanan (2012) stating that well trained practitioners cannot effectively counsel clients effectively due to barriers and clients being different. In the learners defense, counseling and confidentially appears to be one of the main reasons people trust and confide in professionals.Understanding ValuesWhen  professionals learn to understand the true meaning of values and how it guides the field of practice, the learner believes better results and outcomes will only add to enriching and empowering the different cultures in communities, families, individuals, groups and organizations. However, this will not just happen overnight, but awareness and education is a start. Because in order to be effective in any filed, the learner believes that core values must be in place to assist a vast society that is very so in need of help.ReferencesBoer, D. & Fischer, R. (2013).

The goal of the tool is to gather data about self toward interests and values. Self-assessments do not have a right or wrong answer, but enlightens and evaluates in order to direct and guide a direction of self toward a better development and understanding.Most SurprisedAfter carefully reading the survey concerning self-assessment, the questions and answers were somewhat alarming. The questions brought on some deep thinking and understanding as to which answer is correct, or which answer should I choose in order to be ethical and professional. However, there are no correct or wrong answers, but establishing a baseline approach did bring out strengths and weaknesses. As according to Corey & Corey (2012) professionals who work with others have a responsibility to be aware of their own life issues. Without awareness, a professional could prevent the intervention of progress during helping clients, causing them not to reach their full potential or goals.Weaknesses Might InterfereAs according to Gerbasi & Prentice (2013) self-interest exerts a powerful influence on behavior and self-beliefs. As mentioned earlier in the human service values discussion, the value of self- determination would be most difficult when working with clients. However, if self-interest and beliefs played role especially in religious beliefs, I believe, it would become a weakness in the helping field. Moreover, the learner will never push religion on a client, because individuals within the United States have freedom of religion. Laurin, Kay & Fitzsimons (2012) explained that people’s specific beliefs about God vary, and the conception of God as a powerful supernatural force is consistent across cultures and religions. Sometimes certain religious beliefs or practice can help people cope with uncertainty and other circumstances.Improvements in Future DevelopmentsAfter taking the test and discovering some of the weak areas, there are always room for improvement and even more self-assessment. When working with multicultural populations, the art of appearing positive, desirable, motivated, and accurate can help to bring about effective delivery services. The approach of values, principles and ethics will play a major role toward improving and promoting better change toward the learner’s improvement goals and achieving competence. The learner wants to strive for a standard of being balanced in self- assessment in order to enhance self-knowledge.ReferencesCorey, G., Corey, M. S. & Callanan, P. (2012).

Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Vol. 102(1), 4-21.2st Student:AbstractThe self-assessments were very interesting for the learner. They help display her strengths as well as weaknesses. This is something that will benefit the learner with her career. By being aware of her weaknesses she can continue to work on them in hopes of becoming a better professional and providing the best services for her clients.What Most Surprised YouAfter completing the assessments the learner wasn’t surprised when going through her answers but realized new aspects about herself. First off, it became clear that multicultural counseling is something that is very important to her and counselors need to be aware of the many aspects when working with diverse clients. When taking the self assessment in chapter four many of the questions were directed towards ethics and multicultural viewpoints. The learner found she agrees that professionals should be well trained, have values and use specific theories when working with diverse clients. Furthermore, the learner doesn’t have any problems if faced working with a client who differs from her.Weaknesses Interfere in the Helping ProcessWhile new aspects were realized, the assessments also showed some weaknesses. The self assessment about attitudes and beliefs was very interesting but the learner found herself stuck with a few of the questions. One question asked how you would assist a client who could no longer pay for services. One of the options stated that you could see the client until they were in a better financial position. This is something the learner would think about doing but this could eventually end up hurting her financial stability. In addition, when working in a company you have to bill all clients. Being stuck in a predicament like this would definitely weigh on the learner however, if this was a real life situation she would have to come to a solution. Being stuck in hard predicaments will occur in the human service field and the learner needs to be ready to come up with decisions in order to help clients.Determine Professional NeedsTo conclude, completing the assessments was definitely a learning experience and helped the learner identify new aspects about herself as well as things that need to be worked on. Understanding that being put in hard predicaments will be a struggle for the learner is something that she will have to work on. So far in her career the learner has not been in a crucial situation where she had to make a decision that might not be the best choice for the client. In regards to the question where the learner was stuck; she plans on researching community resources she could possibly refer clients too if financial problems occur. Also, the learner plans on attending more trainings about ethics in the human services field. Hopefully, these will be the beginning steps of helping the learner when faced with difficult decisions.Unit 2 The Field of Human Services: Theory and PracticeIntroductionAccording to Woodside and McClam (2015) human Services professional are challenged to meet human needs that arise from the problems of everyday living and the difficulties encountered in our modern world. Human Services professionals take on many roles and work in diverse settings. Understanding the type of services and relationships that are most common in the field will increase your understanding of how to be effective when individuals, group, agencies, and communities change.Toggle DrawerHide Full IntroductionRegardless of the group or setting, human services professionals will be asked to serve their clients by providing a variety of care-related services and advocacy efforts to facilitate the helping process. Being effective means having the ability to work collaboratively with multiple parties to seek the best solution for those you are helping. As client populations become more complex, communities become more diverse and societies present more challenges, the role of the human services professional and the skills needed to be effective will continue to evolve.Your work this week focuses on your understanding of the field and the role of the human services professional. You will apply your understanding of the field to develop a definition of who human services professionals are and what they do. You will also explore and apply how care is provided to real world situations.ReferenceWoodside, M. R., & McClam, T. (2015). An introduction to human services (8th ed.). Stamford, CT: Cengage Learning.Week 2 – Assignment 1 – Perspectives from the Field– 250 WordsTo prepare for this discussion, interview three human services professionals.

She enrolled in school as a single mom with three children, ages 3, 12, and 15. Violet had served in the military for three years and was receiving funding from the Armed Services. She still struggled to provide for herself and her family while she was in school. Her eldest girl needed special medical services since she was a diabetic and had allergies. She had been hospitalized four times last year when she experienced breathing difficulties. Her 12-year-old son had learning difficulties and psychological problems. The school officials and the school psychologist recommend a special school for at least six months. Child care is required for her 3-year-old while she is in school (Woodside & McClam, p. 56).List the services you believe this family needs and identify which model would best represent each of the services on your list.Response GuidelinesRespond to two peers, analyzing the models identified. Were these models appropriate for the services listed? What else might you include or recommend?Week 4 – Assignment 1 – Applying the Multidisciplinary Approach– 250 WordsFind an article in the Capella University Library that addresses a real-world problem from the field and complete the following:·         Write a clear, concise summary of the problem to be addressed.·         Analyze how you would apply each step of the multidisciplinary approach to address the problem. For example:·         What data might be collected?·         Who should be included in the dialogue?·         what should be addressed during collaboration?·         What is the recommended course of action?·         Who should communicate the course of action?·         What should be discussed and with whom?·         Step back and reflect on your analysis.

What were the similarities and differences? Provide a final analysis of some of the challenges that seem to be present when applying a multidisciplinary approach.Week 4 – Assignment 2 – Gathering Information– 250 WordsThe readings this week discussed the importance of gathering data as an essential first step in the helping process. In your An Introduction to Human Services text, review the case that appears on pages 152–153 and reflect on how you might engage in this first step if you were presented this case in practice, addressing the following:·         The readings present several perspectives through which a helping professional might view a case. Provide a summary of the case through the different perspectives.·         What do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of looking at the case from only one perspective?·         As you learned this week, the point of the data collection phase is to be able to create a clear picture of the problem(s) to be addressed in collaborative session. Understanding this, what additional information do you feel needs to be gathered to present a holistic view of this case? Explain your reasoning.Response GuidelinesRespond to at least two of your peers, addressing the following:·         What additional data points might you recommend that your peer consider and why?·         What are some of the challenges your peer might face when seeking data from the sources they have identified?·         How might they address these challenges?Week 5 – Paper Assignment – Gathering Information– 5 pagesYour ability to use the multidisciplinary approach depends on your mastery of the core set of capabilities described in the introduction to Unit 4. One of those capabilities is the research skill of gathering data, which involves not only the collection process, but also the thinking processes involved in synthesizing what you find and integrating it into a coherent picture of the client and the situation. This assignment, the first of three in your capstone project, is designed to have you apply this capability to the case that you selected.Your assignment is to write a case conceptualization, a description of the case and an interpretation of the issues and problems involved. The studies and discussions in Units 4 and 5 were designed to provide the rich data and information upon which you will draw to arrive at your understanding of this client and his situation.Case InformationIn Unit 4, you chose one of these two case clients as the basis of your project work:·         Case 1: Joseph, an 8-year-old first grader recently placed in foster care after an emergency removal from his home.·         Case 2: Mark, a 28-year-old inmate in the transition unit at a correctional facility who is expected to be released in two months.Be sure to read the initial case information for your case located in the Resources. In addition, the media piece Interactive Case File provides greater detail on both clients.InstructionsYou began gathering information about your case client in Unit 4, using information in the course files and the media piece Interactive Case File. Now pull this information together, analyze what you have, and write a case conceptualization, following this format:·         Background: Provide a clear and concise background of the case, showing a holistic view of the client.·         Problem Identification: Provide an analysis of the main issues in the case. Clearly connect how issues and needs presented by the client are affecting his emotions and behaviors.·         Case Summary: Present a concise conceptualization of what the needs are and a rationale as to why they should be the focus of your recommendations. Keep in mind that this section is what you will present to the collaborative team, so you want to make sure that you are presenting a clear snapshot of the person and the areas that need to be identified. If more than one need or issue is present, make sure to rank these needs and support why one needs to be addressed over another. The goal is not to make recommendations, but rather to provide a solid starting point for the collaborative team to begin thinking about recommendations.Requirements·         Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.·         APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to APA (6th edition) style and formatting.·         Length of paper: 5–8 typed double-spaced pages.·         Font and font size: Arial, 10 point.Before submitting your assignment, review the scoring guide in the Resources.
