The exercise that we conducted in the last assignment was one that helped increase my knowledge on the role of human services within a given community. The Riverbend scenario also offered me with an opportunity to apply some of the human services theories that are applicable in the real world. There are several items that I wish to reflect upon from the exercise that we conducted. The first is to assess some of the attributes of effective human services professionals. These are traits and characteristics that enable human services professionals to meet the various outcome of human services. Some of the major attributes that one must possess include showing patience, showing empathy, understanding, and caring about the needs of the people (Harris, & Maloney, 2017). Showing genuine concern for the people at the societal level guarantees that human services professionals do everything in their ability to ensure that the various outcomes of the society are met.
