Regarding the Mindfulness Practice homework assignment, please reflect on that process and share its impact: positive, negative, or neutral. How could you use this in your own life or how could it benefit your clients?
For the Mindfulness homework assignment I feel as if it could be beneficial if used properly. For me personally it is hard to sit and think of nothing and do nothing. My mind was going in a million different directions. I do think it could be positive for clients who may be going through a lot. Even if during your session you complete the mindfulness with them. The time they have with you may be their only free time to sit and think of nothing and allowing them that time could be very impactful.
As we discussed in class closure last week, please state 2 things that you are taking away from this course in Human Behavior and the Social Environment.
On of the things I will take away from the course is being mindful of each person’s different life processes. Everyone grows and develops in different ways and it is important for us to know that everyone is different and develops differently. They may also go through stages of life a different times then others do. This is important not only for us to remember but to remind the parents as well. The second thing I will be taking away from the class is the importance of parenting and how it pertains to the child. When the parent shows a particular parenting style that may be inhibiting the child from learning or developing the way they should be. Not only is important to relate parenting with your clients but also in your own life. Being able to understand the importance of the relationship you create with your child is very crucial.
