In a 3- to 4-page paper (Not including title or reference page), write a summary of the VFE® session, noting the competencies and practices that were effectively demonstrated by the counselor. Include the following:
- Explain how the counselor effectively applied at least three competencies outlined in the APA guidelines and the article. Provide examples.
- With regard to each competency you selected, share insights that you gained about the application of this competency from the dialogue between the two counselors (in other words, that you did not gain from observation of the session alone).
- Explain how the counselor demonstrated effective cultural competency, providing examples to support your response.
- Based on your current level of knowledge and skill, suggest one recommendation you might make to the counselor to improve his or her effectiveness.
