Here’s a bonus post for today.
Here am I in class again. I’m taking Conjoint Counseling. The syllabus describes the course as:
This course focuses on the theory and application of counseling couples and families, stressing therapeutic practice when counseling couples and/or family members simultaneously. The primary focus is on theories, models, and interventions employed when counseling various combinations of persons in relationships.
This is the last class that I have to take as an elective in order to have all the required coursework for not only the Mental Health tract, but the Marriage & Family tract as well. Sounds good to me… the more diverse I can be the better.
There are 11 of us in the class and only one other student have I ever had in class before. This student knew that I had been working on my practicum/internship, so he asked how it was going. This was a moment that I wondered how I would answer this question when it was asked of me. So I was given the chance to answer it one of two ways: I was not working on my internship because some things had come up in my life that prohibited me from being able to work on my internship, or I could answer it by saying that I out the internship process on hold in order to come on staff at H2O Church. In the clutch moment, how did I respond to the million dollar question…?
