I have to role play in class and I don't know where the best place is to put in the confidentiality statement. I feel that it may sound choppy and break up the thoughts of the client, please help?
I find that the confidentiality statement is one of the most important topics to bring out during the initial assessment. If the client is coming in for the first time before opening up the conversation about why the client is in, introduce yourself, let the client know what to expect during the session, then give the confidentiality statement.
I am writing a research paper and I don't know where to begin or how to organize my thoughts, I kind of know what I want to talk about though, can you help?
Before I begin any research essay I look at the prompt and organize an outline. Typically, I start my outlines by writing out all of the details the teacher/professor wants. Next, I create bullet points underneath placing any quotations and research pertaining to the subject. Once I have gone through every bullet point with my quotations and research, I then create another bullet point with my personal thoughts regarding the subject. This helps me to organize my thoughts and then I begin writing my essay and format based on the outline.
I am having trouble keeping up in class and do not know how to take notes fast enough, do you have any suggestions?
One note taking style you might try is the Cornell Method of note taking. Cornell Notes are very simple. First, you will need to place your notebook paper vertically, then draw a line 2 inches from the left side of the paper. The space on the left side of the paper you will write the subject that the teacher is talking about. On the right side of the paper, you will write in key details that the teacher uses related to the subject on the left. Anytime the teacher mentions a new subject, skip two lines on the right side and begin taking notes again. On the left side make sure to write the new subject: be sure the subject is adjacent to the beginning of the new note section on the right side.
