Thinking of Becoming a Counsellor?
Publication Date: 2012-02-22
People in their later years sometimes wonder if they could put to good use a lifetime's experience in raising a family, following a career, dealing with mid-life crises or generally coping with fortune's slings and arrows. Becoming a counsellor may well be perceived as an accessible way of offering support and understanding for those trying to cope with difficulties that they themselves may have encountered and worked through. But embarking on counselling training can be very unsettling because of the extensive emotional demands made on the participants and for which they may be poorly prepared. Students are routinely introduced to the theory of unconditional positive regard, genuineness and empathy; the core conditions of Rogerian therapy. But as Rogers made clear, it is not enough for the counsellor to play the role of the therapist. He or she has to be the therapist -- a very different concept. This book explores with the reader the journeys of self-discovery which prompted pioneering practitioners to direct their skills in particular ways and the influence exerted by their backgrounds, ambitions and personal histories. The strategies they evolved and the conflicts they sometimes engendered are investigated, and case studies used to demonstrate how the different modalities are applied, and how clients may benefit from them. The book also reviews how some of these techniques have been modified by later practitioners to accommodate the counselling environment of today. The overall objective is to help would-be therapists arrive at an understanding of the inner resources needed to embark on a counselling career, and to help them determine which approach might best accord with their temperament and lifetime's experience.

Additionally, this resource covers meeting state and national standards, following federal mandates, and how to relate to and communicate with colleagues and parents..

The Reflective Translator: Strategies and Affects of Self-directed Professionals.
Publication Date: 2014-07-30
Although university studies do not always provide translators with the necessary skills, many of them continue in their professional capacity, which is understood to be the result of self-directed learning processes. Thus, translators seem to be not only agents of their own education, but also products of translation operations. The data obtained by means of a questionnaire covers three areas: specialisation and the market, qualifications and competence as well as affects and attitudes. Also, a general description of translators’ specific self-directed learning strategies is provided. The results reveal that institutional training has virtually no importance in the professional education of translators and that the skills missed most in their everyday activity are those they failed to acquire by means of self-directed learning procedures.

Constructing New Professional Identities: Career Changers in Teacher Education
Publication Date: 2013-03-01
This book provides a unique insight into the learning experiences of career change professionals in teacher education. Many studies have provided a brief glimpse into the experiences of people making a career change into teaching, but this book offers an in-depth analysis of the day to day struggles and triumphs of a small group of career change students studying teacher education in Australia. This study locates teacher professional learning within a sociocultural research paradigm, highlighting the importance of social, cultural and institutional contexts in learning. Learning to become a teacher is not merely the acquisition of a set of technical skills and propositional knowledge, but a far more complex personal struggle to construct a new professional identity. This book uncovers some of the trials, tribulations and joys of becoming a teacher for those who have already worked in other careers. It examines the impact of previous career experiences on the construction of a new professional identity as a teacher. This process is discussed using the framework of learning within communities of practice. Firstly, a broad-brush picture is presented through analysis and discussion of extensive quantitative data obtained via an on-line survey, after which a small group of survey respondents provide a more nuanced exploration of their experiences as student teachers. This is followed by three case studies that delve more deeply into the experiences, frustrations and joys of being an expert novice in teacher education. These case studies examine the stories of three career changers who provide personal insights into what it is like to be an experienced professional embarking on a new journey as a novice student teacher.
