    “Oh, I have been in this group for more than 12 years” shared by a gentleman from a gambling anonymous (GA) group that I attended as a homework assignment. My first impression for group psychotherapy is that group will help people to reduce stress level without knowing how, why or what group counseling actually is. With the limited knowledge regarding group counseling, I am surprised to learn how much impact a support group can have for each person who participates. During the first lecture, although we were taught that group therapy has the same effectiveness as individual therapy in many situation, I did not completely accept it (Kinnier, 2016). What went into my mind was that “how is a group setting be as effective as the individual setting?” It turned out that I was wrong; I agree that group therapy has the same significance as individual therapy. In this paper, my experience with group therapy, my therapeutic values, theoretical orientation, philosophy regarding group psychotherapy will be discussed. Being able to participate in a group throughout the whole semester benefits me greatly. It gave me a better understanding of how being in a group would be, what clients may experience physically, and what they may feel emotionally.

    On a Thursday evening coming home from school just another hot day in Moreno Valley as I lazily walked up the stairs to my room I suddenly was enabled to stand, so I laid down my bed feeling the sun light coming out the window burning my left side of my body. My sister Ana and her friend were next room right next to mine listening to their abhorrent lyrics they called music. A couple of months ago before moving into this gorgeous house the prefect home I always dreamt or any other kid who grew…

    Women Who Made a Difference Women, while often portrayed as unimportant to the hero’s success or failure, were sometimes the catalyst that aligned the hero with fate. Siduri, in The Epic of Gilgamesh, gave Gilgamesh the information he needed to complete his quest for immortality. It was, however, her words of wisdom that ultimately offered the answers he sought. Rebekah, in The Old Testament, executed a plan so Jacob, rather than Esau, received his father’s blessing. When Esau vowed to kill…

    regardless of the result of the activity. Each translation of the final verse offers a different definition and treatment, yet Simeon and Levi imply the revenge justified her honor. However, none of the selected translations of the descriptive reflect a woman that has been raped. They each have connotations of a partner engaged in sexual activity. Perhaps הַכְזוֹנָ֕ה occurs as a reflection of what Jacob was in essence doing to Dinah - selling her for financial gain. The economic gain that…

    makes covenants with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses in return for obedience of his commands. God promised blessings that consisted of acquiring Promised Land, building a great nation and having children to fulfill his perfect plan. The Abrahamic and Mosaic Covenants are affirmed and re-affirmed on a continued basis but the promises take years to be executed. While Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses obey God’s commands, they are almost never enriched with blessings in the present; they are blessed…

    and their twin sons (25:19-34, 27:1-28:17, 32:3-33:15). In these stories, God again nudges the covenant with Abraham along by providing spouses, opening barren wombs, and protecting key characters on their journeys. What is new with these stories is how characters begin to take fulfillment of God’s prophecy into their own hands. I would discuss how the interpersonal relationships take bitter turns, just as it did earlier under Abraham’s tent, only these events are followed by restitution. Jacob,…

    Joseph found favor with Jacob. All of his brothers were jealous of him. He was a man of strong character. His brothers sold Joseph into slavery, only for God to create a place for the nation of Israel to survive during years of famine. Just as Joseph stated to his brothers, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (NIV Genesis 50:19-20). Characteristics I find that once again…

    have done. In the book of Genesis, Jacob is first introduced to the bible when Rebekah and Isaac have their twin sons. It is described, that the first child out of the womb is the child whom will bear the birthrights. As Rebekah is having her twins, Jacob tries to pull the heel of Esau back into the womb. This is the first sign that Jacob is jealous of Esau and has the ability to scheme and plan (Gen. 25:19-28). At this point in the biblical text, scholars could believe that Jacob is going to…
