Good evening everyone, I hope everybody has had a great start to the week!
For my discussion post today I will be discussing careers in mental health. The options are endless and there are just so many opportunities for people to succeed in having a career in this field. I will also be writing about a major career path that involves doing therapy or counseling, and also mention what I learned about the educational requirements, job outlook, job description, and salary of the specific career path. To have a career in mental health one would be doing some form of counseling, in order to fully grasp the context of your career we must first take a look at where counseling originated “through the process and techniques of vocational guidance is how the counseling profession was first implemented” (Kottler & Shepard 2015, p.301).
The career that I would be interested in would be a LPC or school counselor for short. The educational requirements for a school counselor requires a masters degree in school counseling and state issued credentials. In the occupational outlook handbook it says that school counselors should have attended a degree program because this is essential to the skills of the job. According to the OOH the job outlook for a school counselor has employment expected to grow 10% from 2021 to 2031, with as many as 32,000 openings for school and career advisors. I believe that when I have finally completed my degree there will still be a high demand for school counselors and even if there isn’t I still would pursue this career because this is something near and dear to my heart, although “the lowest paid 25% school counselor to date has made $47,390 (Graves, para. 3) this still wouldn’t affect my decision. A job description for a school counselor includes helping students develop high achieving academic and social skills, which would be a great position for me because I love to put in the dedication to help others succeed and reach their goals. A school counselor also works with students to help with poor attendance ,negatively impacted attendance in school, and behavioral changes.
Lastly the salary that a school counselor would be making is at the highest “best paid 25% $77,210 (Graves, para. 3) and and median annual wage of $60,510 which was reported in May 2021. Overall in doing this discussion post I have learned a great deal about the career position that I am interested in and the factors it takes to get the position and maintain an outstanding reputation in said career field.
Wishing everyone a great rest of the week!

EDITED Week 3 Discussion: Careers in Mental Health Care
COLLAPSE
The Occupational Outlook Handbook states that Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs), also called Mental Health Counselors, need a bachelor’s degree in counseling plus 2,000 to 4,000 hours of supervised clinical experience. Most states also require licensure. The job outlook for LPCs is expected to grow much faster than average, at 22% from 2021 to 2031. The median salary in 2021 was $48,520 yearly (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2022).
Licensed Professional Counselors provide mental health services focusing on behavioral, emotional, and cognitive issues. Depending on the state, they may be called licensed clinical professional counselors, licensed mental health counselors, or something similar. As an LPC, you may counsel individuals, couples, families, and groups for learning impairments, substance abuse, and psychoanalysis. A counselor’s education and training focus on providing client-centered treatment (Kottler & Shepard, 2015).
The job description for an LPC includes the following:
Assessing clients’ needs, strengths, and weaknesses.
Developing treatment plans.
Providing individual, group, and family counseling.
Keeping detailed records of clients’ progress.
A counseling degree helps prepare you to guide other people through difficult times. Here are a few steps on the LPC track to consider (2U, 2022).
Earn a bachelor’s degree
Pursue a master’s degree in counseling
Complete practicum and internship hours
Sit for a licensure exam
Obtain counseling licensure and certification
Choose a counseling career path
Advance your practice through continued learning
LPCs work with clients experiencing a wide range of psychological distresses, including anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, grief, and low self-esteem. LPCs use various counseling techniques to help clients identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors. LPCs may also provide crisis counseling to clients experiencing a major life event, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or job loss.
LPCs also consult with other professionals, such as physicians, teachers, and lawyers, to coordinate client services. LPCs work in a variety of settings, including private practices, mental health clinics, hospitals, and schools. LPCs may also work for employee assistance programs, substance abuse treatment facilities, and government agencies.

Module 2 Discussion: Lost in Translation? – Discussion
This week, you read a chapter and article discussing the relationship between Buddhism and science. Using what you’ve learned from the reading, lecture, and any optional engagement activities you elected to do, answer the following prompts:
In what ways does Buddhist theory and practice inform or influence the science of
meditation?
Describe one or more “missing components” in Western versions of mindfulness, as they compare to the Buddhist approach. What aspects of mindfulness do not translate well from Buddhism to scientific research? To what extent can meditation be reduced to a technique, and to what extent do we need to take into account the broader context of meditation?
Discuss aspects of Buddhist psychology or the Buddhist notion of mind and “self” in terms of the Buddhist view of suffering and how to alleviate it. What stands out for you as important in mindfulness practice for those experiencing personal challenges?
As part of your discussion, briefly relate your insights to a time you experienced a significant life challenge or time of adversity.

Social psychology includes the study of attitudes, persuasion, self-understandin

Social psychology includes the study of attitudes, persuasion, self-understanding, and people’s everyday behaviors in their relationships with others. In addition, social psychologists study social behavior and how people influence one another. A stereotype is a belief or expectation about a group of people. Prejudice is an unfavorable attitude toward a group of people. It is usually associated with discrimination, which is the unequal treatment of diverse groups.
Decades ago, Americans admitted their prejudices openly. Today, most people believe in fair treatment for everyone, or so they say. However, are people as unprejudiced as they claim to be? Researchers have sought ways to measure subtle prejudices people do not want to admit. A popular method is the implicit association test (IAT), which measures reactions to combinations of categories.
Watch Social Psychology: Stereotypes, Prejudice, & Discrimination: Defining Terms.
Click Here and Take the IAT.
Then, reflect on your lived experiences and answer any three (3) of the questions below:
When have you been stereotyped?
What are the narratives surrounding your stereotyping experiences?
How did they make you feel?
How did you know you were being stereotyped?
How is the stereotype perpetuated?
Do you know others who have had to deal with a similar stereotype?
Do you know of any films, commercials, or books that reinforce this stereotype?
What can you do to manage these situations?
How do you want people to perceive you?
What can you do to change people’s perceptions?

Job Performance Criteria
In this discussion, compare two different types of job performance criteria. For the unit assignment, what type of information are you using to determine which type of job performance (or job performance model) is most appropriate for the job you are analyzing in this course? When you complete your job analysis, you will begin to consider which selection assessments will be most appropriate for the job you are analyzing and consider the validity for that assessment type. Based on the unit readings related to validity, what type of evidence will be important to gather to support the validity of the inferences drawn from selection assessment scores for the job you are analyzing? You may choose to discuss one source of validity evidence—content, construct, or criterion—for this discussion.
