Reflection On Public Service Announcement Skills

Improved Essays
Class #10 (Lab during class #9)
Readings: None listed in the outline (PSA Presentation day!) Today we had all of our Public Service Announcement assignments present in class. Some were videos, slideshows and poems. Over all, it was very interesting to see and learn about all of the different trauma related fields, theories, facts and activities. I think that everyone brought forward a creative presentation, making their PSA their very own. I truly enjoyed this class and think that it followed through with the amount of learning potential it offered.
1. What did this class mean to you?
To me, this class meant opening my eyes to even more topics and subtopics included with trauma healing, and then being able to take that knowledge and apply it in

How did it make me feel?
I felt very interested in exploring the topic, but this course did seem like an end to wrap up our journey in learning about trauma healing. I feel disappointed about the end of the course content however I also feel inspired and encouraged to apply what I have learned. I feel reflecting on the class that this was a perfect topic to end on, as it embraces all of the aspects of trauma and trauma healing we have explored so far.
3. How did the class connect (or not) to the readings (citing the readings)?
The readings connected fairly well to the mindfulness aspect that we explored the other week, however I personally can understand how mindfulness and the ability to be self-aware is something that correlates with resiliency directly.
4. What did you learn about yourself during the class?
This class I learned that this is probably my favourite class that I’ve ever taken. In reflection, I really appreciated the organized and layer based way of learning. Each lesson was building off the last, and that made it easier for me to learn. I figured out that personally I learn better this way, because I like to apply what I have learned in further lessons which is something I have been able to do this

    This course has been very beneficial to my development as a culturally grounded social worker. There were four components that stood out to me. One thing that stood out to me was the article regarding the experiences of Vietnamese refugees. The article painted a great picture of the treatment of those who are from underrepresented populations. The feelings you described were raw and represent feelings of others who might feel uncomfortable with speaking up for themselves when they are treated properly.…

    Throughout this whole quarter, I would say that I have learned a lot in this class. Not only that I learned what is in the syllabus but also the importance of being able to apply my understandings on a problem. I believe that the instructor did a great job in addressing the learning outcomes in this class by helping us in understanding the concepts that we need to learn in order complete this course. One of the learning outcomes of this course is that each students should be able to describe, interpret and predict the propagation of energy via waves, using applied conservation of energy principles. Before this class, I have learned about the law of conservation of energy in PHYS221 with Micheal Greiner.…

    This course has taught me how to be more self-aware about what type of counselor I want to be and focus more on my values and accomplish what is important for me. This course also taught me how to be more flexible. Having a full-time job working 40 or more hours a week plus school; it was hard and still is, but having flexibility when I become a Mental Health Counselor will help me because I must be flexible to meet the client needs so we can establish a client/counselor relationship and maintain that relationship. Through this course, I learned about my professional identity, how to bring my personal values into Mental Health Counseling without losing myself, yet help the client without pushing my values on that person.…

    Beginning this class, I was not sure what to expect because I did not really know what community health was. I signed up for the class to fulfill the requirement for my minor. Throughout this class, I have learned so much about the aspects of the community health, agencies, drug abuse, health rates, and disease types and control. These were all topics that were greatly interesting to me and I feel like the class improved my understanding of the way in which many communities operate. It also taught me the correct meaning of many terms that I thought I knew what they meant, but I had heard them used incorrectly so often that I associated the wrong meaning with the word.…

    Before I started the SEL activity, I read the story, “Crow Boy” by Taro Yashima; a story about a lonely boy who is bullied due to his small size and being different. Then after discussing the story, I listed some of the social and emotional skills the students identified: compassion, kindness, teamwork, and understanding. Then I shared about the Social & Emotional course I am taking. My students all agreed that Social & Emotional Learning skills are important and will help them in school and in life. This established a meaningful purpose for the journal activity.…

    Throughout this course we have not only gained factual knowledge about East Asia but also a framework that we can use to understand other countries and cultures around the world. To consider ourselves global citizens, we must have an understanding of the world and the way it works. From learning about the history of East Asia, we now have a better understanding of why it works the way it does today, and that makes us less ethnocentric and more empathetic toward others. This course has allowed me the opportunity to grow more as a global citizen, and to see where I have achieved and failed at pushing to see beyond myself and be a more inclusive person. Asides from the overt growth of knowledge about East Asian and its history, I have also gained an appreciation for the past and understanding that we cannot always believe what has been told and retold throughout history.…

    When I first began this class I thought that this would be just another introductory class that is required to orient you to the expectations of the particular college. Now, after completing this class, I know that this is not the case. Personal Dimensions of Learning has been a great help, not only to my school work, but also in my daily life. Before taking this class, I thought that learning, and completing daily tasks, were mostly memorizing the order of the way things are supposed to be done and just completing the task. I never liked this strategy, but it always seemed to be the most convenient way to get things done at school, home, and work.…
