3 page paper in apa format with reference list
I had to pick two Human Service Proffesions that appealed to me, which were a trauma therapist and Behavior analyst. Next I have to write a paper addressing the following:
- define what a trauma therapist and Behavior analyst are. In your definitions, make sure to describe the scope and purpose of human services within each profession.
- Explain the roles and responsibilities of the human services professionals in each of the two professions and where in your community these roles might be available.
- Finally, explain why these two professions appeal to you, noting specific attributes, characteristics, responsibilities, etc., that attract you to these positions.
I am having a complete block. This is as far as I got and I am unsure wither this is even correct.
