Self- care is something that is often discussed within the field of psychology but to be honest, it’s something we don’t unfortunately practice as often as we should. One thing I am continuing to learn how to do is to maintain good time management, complete my work, as well as engage in healthy self- care methods. A practical way I am engaging in self- care is leaving my work at work. Being a therapist can be stressful and sometimes it’s hard not to think about my patients when I leave for the night. I have learned how to worry about my patients when I’m there and leaving it in my office once my work day is over. I also utilize reading for leisure as a form of self- care. Whether I’m taking a break at work or I’m decompressing after a long day, I make it a point to read a few pages from a good book. According to Fisher (2017) practical guidelines that are recommended for psychologists include minimizing social isolation, receiving adequate sleep, and setting work- relate boundaries. Some of the practical guidelines outlined I have been able to implement with ease (i.e., managing the risk for social isolation and engaging in therapy). Other guidelines such as maintaining a healthy diet and getting enough sleep have been a little more difficult. One of the biggest risk of not engaging in self- care is burn- out. We run the risk of not being effective clinicians if we are not taking care of ourselves and in turn, risk doing harm to our clients/patients. Poor self- care can also inhibit out ability to make effective ethical decisions.

Similar to the philosophy of ethical decisions we are faced with these decisions everyday. Ethical decisions in our day to day lives are made in simple and complex forms. Additionally, the decisions we make are in alignment with what our own ethical beliefs are. For instance, ethicality is very broad and is significantly based on someone’s perspective of what is and isn’t ethical. Furthermore, as a student academic honesty is very important. A way that I would maintain academic honesty is ensuring that I am paraphrasing, correctly citing sources, and being mindful of plagiarism and/or cheating. In addition, the best resource to follow is the general principles ethics codes. The principles breaks down the boundaries of ethics and notions to having integrity (Fisher, 2016). In all, academic honesty is a fundamental of one’s character (Sugiarti, Husain, & Halimah, 2021). Further enhancing that while we can have many codes for ethics it is ultimately up to us as people and students to hold true to academic honesty.

Contrary to popular belief we make ethical decisions everyday of our lives. Whether it is in our personal or professional lives we are often tasked with deciding how to proceed and make decisions based on ethics. The steps to ethical decision includes determining if a situation poses an ethical dilemma, referencing the APA code of ethics for guidance, and consulting an laws that may apply to the specific situation (Fisher, 2016). When entering into a graduate program we have to consider the ways in which we can maintain academic honesty throughout our career. Before making a decision to plagiarize or cheat on an assignment, we go through the ethical decision making process. One way we can maintain academic honesty is by reminding ourselves of the consequences of being dishonest in our program. Whether that is a failing grade or dismissal from the program, often times a reminder of those potential consequences is enough to guide us towards making a more ethical decision.
