HUS4801Spr2015

HUS 4801 provides students with a professionally supervised work experience in a human service agency. On campus weekly classroom seminars assess students’ progress towards learning objectives, explore student’s concerns and professional practice issues. The development of responsible and appropriate problem solving techniques is emphasized. During the semester there is a shift away from direct practice to areas of supervision administration, needs assessment, elementary program evaluation and resource development.

My Projects

Stress/Anxiety Reducing Breathing Techniques

Stress/Anxiety Reducing Breathing Techniques

Am presently attending internship at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center (KMJC). My duties include light case management, interviewing, and counseling. The population consists of the elderly with congestive heart failure. I have noticed that many are in pain complicated by other ailments. Breathing techniques have proven to assist me in relaxing, as well as reduce my stress and anxiety. This semester I went through the process of being approved, at KJMC by my supervisor, to implement said breathing techniques. Will be implementing Stress/Anxiety Reducing Breathing Techniques at internship site in the spring of 2015.
