(Bereavement counselor)Preliminary Conceptualization of the Counseling Field
Start writing your introduction here (1–2 paragraphs). An effective introduction prepares
the reader by identifying the purpose of the paper and providing the organization of the paper.
Please double-space and remember to indent all paragraphs throughout your paper (not block
form!). First person only please. Unless required for the specific assignment, please do not
include a Table of Contents or abstract. Review paper guidelines on page requirements and
number of sources required (if provided.) Unless citing a classic work, aim to cite research
articles and texts published within the past 5 years. Please use headings throughout your paper
that are consistent with the paper’s scoring guide (that way you ensure you are adequately
addressing all required areas.)
When you finish writing your paper, re-read it to check for errors and make sure your
ideas flow well. A helpful tip is to read your paper aloud to yourself. If it does not sound right
to your ear – it is not working on paper!
Please note that there should be NO spaces between sections or paragraphs. Section
headers are centered, yet text is left justified with ALL paragraphs having the first sentence
indented.
Personal Interest in the Counseling Field and Career Goals
Identify and briefly discuss the counseling field you are working towards eventual
licensure in, such as LPC, LPCC, LMHC, and LMFT. The discussion should be a minimum of
3–5 sentences and should include at least one citation from your readings, applied in APA style.
Describe what made you interested in the counseling field, such as personal interests,
events, or people who have influenced you, tying this into your professional goals. Craft a
response that includes the following: What forged your interests in the counseling field? What
are some influences on your movement in the field? Why are you interested in this field?
You must have references to the literature to support this information, including one chosen
model. This discussion should be a minimum of two paragraphs, and each paragraph should
include at least one citation from your readings, applied in APA style.
Conceptualization of a Specialization
In this section, provide a discussion on a specialization of personal interest for you as a
clinician in your counseling specialization. Describe the type of counseling practice you envision
for yourself, such as a specific focus area, populations you want to work with, or environments
you want to work in, including personal challenges that need to be addressed. For instance, you
might be interested in becoming a LMFT who specializes in working with grandparents raising
grandchildren. This discussion should be a minimum of two paragraphs, and each paragraph
should include at least one citation from your readings, applied in APA style.
Professional Identity
Describe the concept of professional identity in the counseling field. How is our
profession distinguished from others? What is unique about our focus and how we function in
our roles? What do we offer that other professions don’t? This discussion should be a minimum
of two paragraphs, and each paragraph should include at least one citation from your readings,
applied in APA style.
Transferable Skills
Identify and discuss key transferable skills that you see from your other work, life
experiences, or life roles that can help support your work in counseling, including ways in which
these skills may be used. Consider one’s specialization (such as addiction counseling, MFCT,
MHC, or school counseling). This discussion should be a minimum of two paragraphs, and each
paragraph should include at least one citation from your readings, applied in APA style.
Expected Work after Capella
What kind of work do you hope or expect to be doing after completing your Capella
program? Review the evaluation categories in the scoring guide to ensure you are addressing the
‘distinguished’ category for all sections of your paper.
