Intervention and theories are best supported after a multidimensional assessment is completed. Assessments provide a historical overview and identifies all areas of concerns, gaps in care, and any other goals for improvement. The member has an extensive history of sexual, physical, and psychological abuse. Strength based theory is the best approach when working with the member because it will provide a foundation to build interventions upon. "Integration of strengths within the complex and often negatively skewed narrative may re socialize potential clients to perceive that psychotherapy is not only about untwisting their distorted thinking or restoring their troubled relationships, it is also about learning

The first step in achieving recovery through WRAP is to develop a wellness toolbox, which is a list of skills and tools to help the patient cope. The nurse will have a big role in helping the patient identify their strength or weaknesses, as well as helping them identify their support system. Some patient respond better to alone time, so the nurse might suggest journaling, listening to music, exercising, others need social interaction, so suggesting their join a peer group, team sport, or talking to a support person might be better for them. In order to help keep the patient’s autonomy during times of crises, the WRAP has 5 other steps on the road to recovery, including a daily maintenance list, which is a three-part list describing the patient’s feelings, listing a set of tools from the wellness toolbox they are going to utilize that day to maintain their wellness, and then a simple to do list. This type of strategy helps to keep the patient accountable, and as nurses, it is our responsibility to encourage the patients to follow and maintain certain standard to ensure they are compliant to their recovery model. Triggers, warning signs, and crisis planning are the components of the process, and require interdisciplinary work from the patient, nurse, doctor, counselor and other support staff. As with every human being, stress is a normal part of life. How we cope with those stressors is the difference between mental illness and mental wellness. With patients with substance-abuse issues, their coping mechanism is their substance of choice. So it is important to identify those stressors early on, identify early warning signs, look for inevitable situations where the patient feels like everything is falling apart, and most of all, prevent them from using. This is best achieved by following the model
Others in the group are exposed to these behaviors, and this often inspires and provokes and promote change in others in the group. According to M.U.S.E. (2018) it is mainly an support technique.

The family unit can discuss what is bothering them; helping them understand the roles of each person in the home and identify how everybody can work through the dysfunction together to have a healthier functioning home. Plus, new behavioral skill is learned to correct negative behaviors in the home (M.U.S.E., 2081). And, the three points and goals for individual rehabilitation is that it can be used if the patient have dual diagnosis issues, for example depression and hallucinations. Clients learn successful tools to take the control over their own life, and learn how to respond to difficult situations with effective coping
The session 1 and 2 consists of the assessment of the client’s clinical problems and background information. Questions relate to her clinical problems, including (a) the nature of her problems (depression and difficulty with making decisions), (b) reason of seeking psychotherapy, and (c) previous attempts to deal with the problems. For the background information, the client’s histories are assessed in the areas of intimate/family relationship, educational/vocational activities, past history of psychological treatment, and physical condition. Session 3 primarily consists on the further functional assessment around her coping skills (e.g., avoidance) in the areas of interpersonal relationships.
Therapist met with the client for individual therapy at school. Therapist did a check in regards to symptoms, mood, thoughts, emotions, coping skills, the goals that he achieved, and behaviors since the last session. Therapist processed the client's negative thoughts. Therapist used open-ended questions to address any concerns the client may have. Therapist encouraged the client to keep motivated during the stressful time, especially when he has negative thoughts, which stats usually with negative thoughts, argue with his sisters, or with his aunt, or if he has been triggered by any internal or external thoughts. Therapist used open-ended questions to process the client's thoughts and feelings. Therapist thanked client for his honesty and opening up with therapist telling his
Triggers commonly cause clients to relapse and it is important for the development of self-advocacy. This advocacy can be developed by the transformation of thought through rigorous evaluation and understanding of thinking errors and cognitive distortions. CBT works towards skill building with a variety of tools and is effective because of its ability to adjust to meet the client’s needs while documenting progress. The program’s success comes from the implementation of CBT and a combination of other approaches. In alcohol and drug counseling, a client-centered approach has proven to be one of best practice. CBT can be used in partnership with many kinds of approaches to meet the client 's needs. Specific agencies such as Meridian Behavioral Health utilize Health Realization as their primary model of practice but also heavily use CBT because both practices work well together and often overlap in practice. CBT is the recognition of thought through evaluation and meditation. HR practices the three principles which are 1. Mind or intuition e.g. the intelligent, animating force that makes us alive or intelligence of all things. 2. Thought e.g. the understanding that thought dictates experiences which make you aware. 3. Consciousness e.g. understanding that you are deeper than your thoughts and consciousness being the intelligence that guides us without thought. “We go through life thinking; thought is the main catalyst that brings reality to us.” (Video: Sydney banks talks about the Three Principle 2010). Studies have shown results of CBT last long after the treatment itself and are further strengthened by the use of medications with the partnership of psychologists and psychiatrists during and after
They saw that there were still good people unlike Napi’s people and the survivalists. When first meeting Mitch and Sadie, Ian was watching them take out the bullet in the back of Megan’s arm so it would not get infected and so she would not get a disease from the open wound. Not knowing if Mitch and Sadie would be a threat to them they were terrified. When getting to know Mitch and Sadie, they were providing them with food, water, and shelter and rebuilt their health. This impacted them mentally, physically and emotionally because physically they had someone they could trust and that restored their health and giving them the comfort they could not receive. They were impacted mentally and emotionally because Mitch and Sadie became a parent figure to Megan and Ian because they did not have parents anymore to look after them. Having a parent figure took the stress away from Megan let her be her own age and not let her worry. Ian was impacted emotionally because he finally knew what it felt like to have someone he could bond with and have a relationship besides with Megan. Megan was challenged emotionally by having her brother say to her that “...[he] love[s] Mitch.” (page 158). This hurt Megan because she did not understand how he never said to her that to her but could say that about Mitch. Both of them were challenged when they had to leave them because they knew Mitch and Sadie could not provide for them any longer if they were to stay and the supplies would run out faster if there were all four of them in one house compared to two
There are many ways for people to receive help for problems. Whether they decide to take a spiritual, personal, or professional approach, there are always options!

There are as many Relapse Prevention (RP) plans as there are types of addictions. In the treatment of substance use disorders, the most popular evidence-based RP plans are modeled after Marlatt’s cognitive-behavioral approach (Jackson, 2014) and Gorski’s CENAPS system which parallels the stages of recovery. In addition to discussing the some important common components of any RP plan, this paper shall also delineate the importance of the continuum of care in relapse prevention.
