Strengths and Limitations

Some counselors may find working with children and adolescents challenging, and they can have varying reactions to their young clients. For example, some counselors may become emotionally attached to a child or adolescent, particularly if the child or adolescent is extremely vulnerable or emotionally fractured. Being emotionally attached may potentially obscure the counselor’s objectivity. Other counselors may feel disconnected or angry toward their young clients if the child or adolescent is aggressive, attempts to anger the counselor, or refuses to cooperate during counseling. Sometimes it is just very difficult to understand a child’s or adolescent’s perspective on an issue. It is important that counselors are aware of their potential reactions toward a child or adolescent whom they counsel and recognize their strengths and limitations when counseling this population.

For this Discussion review the media Introduction to 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.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a brief description of the population and one child or adolescent issue with which you might be interested in working and explain why. Then, describe one strength you possess that may contribute to your effectiveness as a counselor and one limitation you may need to address and explain why. Finally, explain why it is important for you to consider your strengths and limitations before working with this population. Be specific and use examples to illustrate your points.
