The Benefits of Internship and Supervision:
“A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master.” Matthew 10:24-25 (English Standard Version Holy Bible, 2001)
It is unfortunate to recognize that one of the problems in society today it is not only the lack of professionalism and confidentiality that exists, but it is also the lack of confidence that we can have for those who are looking for help, and those who in somehow are immersed in professions in which they have a daily and direct contact with people they must understand that this not only just to offer another service, but they need ...view middle of the document...

But the most interesting aspect about the confidentiality issues is which was discussed by Dr. Gadomski when she says that: “You need to maintain confidentiality at all times.” (Gadomski, 2014) Confidentiality has also been of great importance to maintain the relationship with the different types of people, from different walks of life, and having confidentiality often leads to not give it any kind of information, and not only about them, but also about the people and places they visit, as this has to be extremely private from the public eye.

If counselors never learn to be supervised, they will never learn the importance to give nor receive a consultation.
However, something that the professional needs to learn and always keep it in mind, is about the reality in learning from the mistakes that others have committed to the counseling profession, and not to do the same; as this certainly would be disastrous not only for those which they are helping, but also for the professional.
