thinking about ethical practice that have occurred during this course. This may include

whose complexity you now appreciate more fully or difficult issues that you now
understand you must grapple with as a counselor. Be sure that you include specific
examples to illustrate general statements. This is the only section in which your personal
experience has been required. Therefore, you are allowed to use first person in this
