Project #35257 - Psychology

Purpose: The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate understanding of the basic theories and techniques of Counseling Psychology, identify the characteristics of an effective helper, and discuss ethical attitudes and codes relevant to psychology.

Guidelines: You have just graduated with a degree from a Counseling Psychology program. You have the opportunity to apply for a position with a community health center. Rather than asking you to submit multiple reference letters from a variety of people, this position requires that you have a professor from your program write a comprehensive letter that describes aspects of your effectiveness as a counselor in your course work and practice setting/training, and your ability to act ethically in a variety of circumstances. You approach your director, Dr. Smith, and ask for this letter to be submitted with your application packet.

For this project, you must take on the role of Dr. Smith and write an effective, professional letter (including appropriate salutation and closing) that will convince the community health center to hire you. The letter must cover all areas requested by the center and emphasize your mastery of the Counseling Psychology discipline.
