I'm having trouble understanding questions and instructions in my class because they're written in Spanish. Is there a way to be able to make sense out of them?
Give yourself extra time to translate the words you know and start by piecing those together to see if you can gain meaning from the context. If there are words you don't know, make a note of them and look them up in a dictionary for future use. If all else fails, ask a classmate or your teacher for help understanding the material.
How do you set yourself apart in college admissions essays?
First and foremost, write from experience. Make your own voice heard through the prompt. Yes, they can be incredibly generic, but that doesn't mean your writing has to be. When in doubt, be personal with it. Be open with your experiences and how they have shaped you and molded you into a candidate for the program. Never write what you think the admissions panel wants to hear.
How would a therapist use the "Empty Chair" technique as an intervention in cognitive therapy?
This technique is a method of role playing where the client engages an "empty chair" and speaks as though they were speaking to their former self in childhood. The therapist would use this technique to help the client understand the basis for their core beliefs and push them to test the validity of them. This would in turn, help the client begin the process of cognitive reframing.
