In 3-5 pages (double-spaced, standard fonts) please describe your view of the helping process. What do you think accounts for human suffering, and what do you see as the role of a clinician in helping to address that suffering? How might you define your clinical perspective, i.e., what informs you in your work? What do you as an individual clinician bring to the process of helping someone who is seeing you; what are your clinical strengths? Where do you think you need to grow clinically, and why is that growth important to you at this time?
