Becoming aware of and attempting to understand the biopsychosocial-spiritual development of clients becomes critically important when addressing issues faced by clients. We all have been impacted by numerous internal and external factors that shape our overall functioning in both private and public lives. Provide a brief summary of the internal and external factors that have shaped who you are. Please use the readings to support your stance on why these factors were influential in your development and who you are today. Please adhere to APA standards when submitting and reference properly.
