Your boss has asked you to participate in a discussion on the nature versus nurture debate with a group of incoming professionals in your field. For your discussion, you will need to be prepared, so you must write a report to present to your boss prior to the discussion. Be sure to address all of the following points:
- What is meant by nature versus nurture, and why is it relevant to the counseling profession?
- What arguments exist on each side of the debate?
- Give examples from your own experience as well as the experiences of others to support your explanations.
- Conclude the report with your stance on the topic. Do you agree or disagree with one side or the other or a combination of both?
- When commenting to other students, determine whether you agree or disagree with the aspects of their stance and explain your reasoning.
