This study was conducted on 5 study participants who are career women and also have commitments at home. This study was conducted using qualitative case study techniques. The results of the study found that the main cause of the fatigue problem faced is not entirely from the workplace, but rather it starts from the individual and at home when a woman has a hypo emotional tank problem that causes them to feel unappreciated. The effect of this feeling causes a state of negative emotion to be brought to the workplace which ultimately causes increased stress and reduced work productivity. This study also found that, after undergoing a mindfulness session, most of them feel calm and able to think to value themselves which automatically causes the fatigue and stress they face to decrease.</p> Norizan Yusof, Mardiana Mansor, Haslinda Hasyim Copyright (c) 2024 Norizan Yusof, Mardiana Mansor, Haslinda Hasyim Sat, 27 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 The Role of Parental Consent in Counseling for Minors: Requirement or Necessity? <p>The purpose of this study is to determine the Role of Parental Consent in Counseling Minors. This research uses the systematic literature review (SLR) method. Based on the results of the synthesis, the urgency of parental consent before the implementation of counseling for minors is as a condition, not a necessity, which means that it must only be fulfilled administratively so that counseling can be carried out but does not have a significant impact on the implementation of counseling. The conclusion of the study reveals that counselors must continue to prioritize the rights and trust of children in conducting counseling, the limits of decisions that can be taken by minors without intervention from parents need to be studied more deeply in further research. The contribution of this research can be used as one of the ethical references for school counselors both theoretically and practically, especially when dealing with minors.</p> Novianti Novianti, Nandang Budiman, Nadia Aulia Nadhirah Copyright (c) 2024 Novianti Novianti, Nandang Budiman, Nadia Aulia Nadhirah Sat, 27 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Analysis of Career Planning Level of High School Students <p>The purpose of this study was to determine the profile of students' career planning levels at SMA Negeri 11 Bandung.
