Counselor educators and supervisors should be proactive in helping students to cultivate wellness practices during internships. Keywords: burnout, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, counseling interns, counselor education Burnout is an occupational hazard affecting one’s personal and professional well-being, leading to feelings of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment (Maslach, Jackson, & Leiter, 1996). Burnout can result in physical and mental health problems, including fatigue and exhaustion, depression, and anxiety (Killian, 2008). Burnout can also affect one’s attitude about oneself and others. For example, counselors experiencing burnout may develop feelings of cynicism or pessimism toward clients and the profession or decreased self-efficacy (Gündüz, 2012). Burnout has been related to lower job satisfaction (Blankertz & Robinson, 1997), turnover within agencies (Alexander, Lichtenstein, Oh, & Ullman, 1998), lower quality of care to clients (Salyers et al., 2014), and intention to leave the helping professions. Specifically, counselor impairment has been acknowledged as a problem for the profession (Young & Lambie, 2007). The need for more proactive approaches to address counselor impairment, such as monitoring burnout and promoting wellness among counselors-in-training, has also been acknowledged (Roach & Young, 2007). The American Counseling Association (ACA; 2014) has recommended that counselors attend to their personal and professional well-being as a way to prevent impairment and burnout. In addition, the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP; 2015) requires counselor education programs to provide students with an understanding of self-care strategies for their well-being. Counselor well-being can be influenced by various factors such as the ability to assess, monitor, and regulate emotions.

Kpop or Prison? South Korea is a sovereign state in East Asia, with numerous principles of decorum and traditions in light of conventional Chinese ways, however formed into a special culture through industrialization, urbanization and westernization. The creator, Sonja Vegdahl Hur expressed that "hiding behind the occasionally stoic Korean façade is a huge number of feelings." However, in the Kpop business symbols are relied upon to demonstrate an abundance of feelings yet need to refine them with a specific end goal to make a picture of finish flawlessness, this is to pull in groups of onlookers and fit in with the patterns in their general public. Kpop is a sort that begins from 1980s South Korea and is intensely in light of varying media content and a combination of remote melodic components. They exhibit icons in a "presentation feature" which comprises of transmission advancements and web based showcasing rather than radio. Be that as it may, to get to the stage, icons must experience an intense preparing period for now and again numerous years. Sixty years back Korea was a war-torn nation yet is currently thriving. This has been accomplished through diligent work which has been exchanged to instruction. Be that as it may, the globalization of an officially aggressive framework has caused excessively worry from a youthful age.â Is being industrious in Korea worth the cost of their psychological wellness? These organizations clearly utilize symbol's fantasies against them as to be the best, media outlets put icons through tiresome times of move, vocal preparing, learning numerous dialects and instruments. In all actuality, this strategy does have qualities; the instilled thought that achievement is vital to a decent life, regardless of the cost is an incredible spark, however is experiencing their fantasy worth the firm cost in wellbeing and joy? I don't think so. The verification is in the West. Numerous specialists are to a great degree prevalent like Beyoncé, yet they never needed to learn troublesome move schedules or another dialect to ascend to the best. In any case, this likewise indicates where culture varies, the picture of flawlessness isn't really as essential in the West as it is in Korea. Symbols are for the most part required to color their hair, wear contacts and get twofold eye-cover surgery to evacuate the epicanthic overlap keeping in mind the end goal to seem more "immaculate" and "European". All icons take part in music shows, for example, Inkigayo (like our MTV music outlines) where every computerized deal, physical collection deals, streams and music video sees are totalled up and the victor picks up the trophy - this is fundamental for the gathering survival in the business as though their notoriety is in steady decrease with barely no wins the organization will no doubt drop them and this as a rule implies they'll lose their homes and wellspring of wage as it's altogether given by the organization, yet despite everything they need to pay an expansive extent for it. Learners are always taught by the organizations they're marked under. An ex-SM Entertainment student uncovered, "On the off chance that you don't enhance however you're pretty they instruct you to remain submerged and hold your breath for 5 minutes and influence you to sit in a 'V' and drop b-balls on your stomach when you relax." This is obviously to urge the learner to work harder yet it ruptures human rights as Korean law forbids such practices of barbaric, or corrupting treatment or discipline. A celebrated claim rose in 2009. A prominent gathering TVXQ, prosecuted their administration over a 13 year contract which finished with progress and the decision incited the Fair Trade Commission to bring a 'model contract' trying to enhance measures. Another ex-learner, Stella Kim was met by 'Le Film Magazine' and indicated her difficulty amid the period she prepared under SM; "On the off chance that you were esteemed overweight, at that point you would be said something front of everyone and disgraced for it." Howbeit, the preparation influenced her even after she quit, she experienced a phase of anorexia and at her most minimal point weighed 90lbs at 5ft 7 alongside Korean understudies at her school in America perceiving her and calling her revolting or fat. This demonstrates preparing in Korea should be improved as the present technique makes symbols to create sentiments of self-uselessness with a contorted arrangement of social esteems. Soloists and gatherings require fans to continue picking up fame. Notwithstanding, a few fans go over the edge and build up a hurtful obsession with icons. In Korea they're called 'Sasaeng fans'. These individuals are infamous for participating in activities that initiate an intrusion of protection. For instance, an individual from JYJ, Yoochun found that his home and parking area had CCTV cameras introduced by Saesangs. Then again is the contrary outrageous, hostile to fans. This alludes to the torment of symbols where individuals develop associations to rationally and physically debilitate icons. They have carried out numerous wrongdoings and go to outrageous techniques, for example, Yoon Kye-Sang from the gathering G.O.D who got a drink defiled with blanch and clothing chemicals which was smashed by his mom, who needed to hospitalized. Symbols are vigorously condemned for appearance in Korea as there is a gigantic desire of flawlessness. A case with young lady bunch Red Velvet, included remarks against their most youthful part, Yeri who was just 17 at the time, where netizens - web nationals - composed slanderous sexually unequivocal remarks about her on a live show. In contrast with Western craftsmen, Kpop symbols work extensively harder for a little measure of opportunity and benefit. A remark on a site, Quora specified that, "Kpop isn't tied in with offering music it's tied in with offering icons - individuals that fans worship."â Furthermore, Kpop specialists are exhausted; F(x's) Krystal crumpled in front of an audience because of weakness as resting just 2 hours daily turned out to be excessively to deal with, while compelled to perform. Indeed, even subsequent to preparing life for symbols is as yet upsetting and troublesome. 9MUSES ex-part, Sera specified in the narrative, "Nobody regards me as a person." But icons need to keep the agreements and stay with the organizations until the point that it closes. The agreements enable the organizations to take away human rights and essential opportunities which any common individual would have. For instance, the privilege to contact family and under the Korean Labor Standards Act it says working hours every week ought not surpass 40 hours. In the I-D Magazine (design culture magazine), 2NE1 part CL expressed, "You must be great. You need to perform well, you shouldn't date anybody and fans have a standard picture, particularly with young ladies in light of the fact that young men can date anyone."â This passes on the issue of sexism in Korea. Measurements from a photo on Instagram uncovered that there was no less than a 10 million Won (£6839.32) pay hole amongst male and female icons. A performing artist, Jang Ja Yeon, age 29 conferred suicide and clarified in a letter that her previous organization CEO, Kim Sung Hun had constrained her to meet compelling individuals at gatherings to give sexual supports so as to keep her activity. All in all, Kpop life and preparing is far more terrible than specialists from Europe. They have more flexibility and aren't generally looked with the trouble of being from an alternate country. To enhance conditions, I figure organizations could (and should) let their objects of worship rest more, eat, wear and sing what they need. To be more equivalent, the two sexes ought to be paid for doing likewise and while preparing be enabled all the more extra time to rest and be dealt with more like an individual and not a protest pick up the organization more cash and notoriety. While netizens whine about symbol's low wellbeing, they ought to in certainty condemn their organizations more with a specific end goal to roll out an improvement and the business must understand that the blend of to a great degree exclusive expectations and a way of life that makes those measures difficult to meet won't make icons glad or capable create substance to the best of their capacity. Accordingly, they merit better working conditions.>GET ANSWER
