The personal reflection should not be fewer than 1.75 pages or exceed 2.5 pages or deductions will apply. You should include a title page that is formatted according to APA guidelines. A detailed marking rubric is available below.
Personal Reflection Paper #2 explores the following questions (note that this has slightly changed from what is in the course syllabus)
Reflecting on what you have learned in modules 4-7, what would you consider to be three key priorities in working with children and youth and why are they important? Use specific references to course material to justify your answer. Identify how each of these priorities will inform how you engage in clinical work with children and youth.
For example, one key priority may be being trauma-informed. This may inform your clinical work as you will ensure that the child/youth feels safe physically and emotionally while working with you, as safety is a key component of trauma-informed care.
(note: do not use this example in your paper, it will not count for marks if you do!)
