We base the helping profession on values, ethnic, and the knowledge of helping people in difficult times. The helping profession helps deal with individuals, families, and groups to deal with their problems to prevent from functioning in everyday life. Murphy and Dillon stated in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, new groups of helpers developed to assist people in distress. These included human service workers, counselors, social workers, psychologists, milieu therapists, psychiatric nurses, and psychiatrists (Murphy and Dillon, 2011, ch.1). Some of the problems that the helping professional deals with are poverty, abuse and neglect, emotional and mental issues, domestic violence, and family issues. The helping profession helps clients find strengths and valuable resources that will help them. They also assist them in positive changes to help them solve their problem or prevention. The relationship to my belief of the helping profession is that it motivates me to help clients and give me faith and values that I have for the profession.
My values of the profession are to be open and honest. I am committed to value all human being know matter what age, color, gender, or race. My job would be to value all human life and lookout for the best interest of their life. When you have people with problems, you need the helping profession to assist them to the resources in the society. I find my values to be sensitive to others feelings. I do not judge people because of their problems or weakness. I value client's privacy and respect as they are. As we work with clients and are exposed to diverse situations and beliefs, we often find our values challenged and changed (Murphy and Dillon, 2011, ch.5). I would also like to give and receive affection to the client but not be able to show my feelings. I want to respect that they may have different values from mines. My values are a reflection of any client relationship.
