Information I applied from
I took two orientation
workshops while on practicummed orientation and abuse
I learned to come out of my
comfort zone more which I
pushed myself to do.
I got to work with a resident on
achieving his goal of setting up
and implementing an art show.
When working with
the residents, we
work as a positive
role model and
mentor in there life
and help them to the
best of our abilities.
I used a lot of critical thinking
I used a lot of ethic models
during practicum when it came
to problem solving.
When communicating with
residents, I applied a lot of the
skills I learned in helping
relationships when having to
communicate with residents.
I also applied what I learned in
AAT in my practicum
experience as well.

The Edge Youth Center: I focused on
building relationships with clients, and
organizing and running activities for
youth ages 12-18.
