"Offering my assistance to someone in need brings me joy. When in a situation where I am helping someone my goal is to accomplish whatever I am doing to help that person. When engaging individuals in the helping process I let the person know how good it feels to help out. A goal for a client would be getting the help they need and having someone to talk to in a safe place. My personal characteristics would influence the way I approach a client because I’m very outgoing and wouldn’t mind talking to someone about anything.
A goal I set for myself as a future social worker would be to try and leave an impact on at least one of my clients. Whether my work with them impacts them in the present time or in the future. I will accomplish this goal by trying my hardest in helping someone. When assisting clients with their current life challenges I will find programs and resources to help them out with whatever they are going through."
