After reading the article about the History of Guidance and Counseling, I have gained an understanding of the approach to holistically address the issues that could potentially be negative for learning, mental growth and career performance. It makes sense to understand the human mind in order to help a person become well and productive. Unlike physical medicine, I learned that from reading this article, there seemed to be a push for the understanding of a person's mental well being. Looking at the advancements and modifications through time, there has been more weight given to studies that focus around this very thing. As a teacher, or even as an individual that gets up and goes to work everyday, I take for granted my mental well being. How can I be an imapactful teacher, if I am not working at 100%? Reading this article made me realize that capacity has nothing to do with knowledge, credentials or certifications, but how you function and what types of stimuli in your environment affect those functions. In regard to guidance counselors and their roles, I see the role being a permanent, but changing one. It will be necessary because human growth is an on-going thing, but the role will change due to the nature and demands of society.
