Student’s description of competency and areas for growth This is my last quarter at ________. Therefore, my goals are the following 1) learn about the licensure process 2) continue to strengthen my therapeutic skills 3) sharpening my mezzo practice skills as I focus on life skills and some health education groups to help youth realize their potential for social functioning 4) learning how to build bridges between organizations 5) network.
Looking at this list made me giggle because God has clearly dreamed a bigger dream for me. It should have been a red flag for me that my university never educated me on the licensure process. Then again, everything happens for a reason. While navigating the licensure obstacles, I became steeped in the process and was able to help change the laws for those behind me. I became a community resource and was able to connect agencies with one another so that they can often fill in the gaps of need. It was also important to me to become a clinical supervisor to help those on their journey toward licensure- I am happy to say I achieved that goal.
