It is important to remember that self-awareness is an individual's ability to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of one's own character. Realizing this will enable one to take actions, and make choices and decisions that are consistent with their own abilities. It is important to put the time in -self-awareness it is not learned in a book, but achieved through self-reflection by using what you have learned about your self to inform decisions, behaviors, and interactions with other people and the Patient/Client in a thought -provoking and creative process that inspires the Patient /Client to maximize conscious knowledge of one's own character, feelings, motives, and desires. The process is painful but it will lead you to a grater understanding of self awareness.
