The HOPS program is an initial first step in a counseling program that would benefit 7th grade students at Trevor’s school. The HOPS program addresses a multitude of areas through psychoeducational groups in coordination with parent meetings. The program would help students in all the basic areas of Middle School that could keep them from being successful: homework, organization and planning skills (Studer, Ch. 5, 2005), as well as giving support to parents and ensuring that all the key stakeholders know how to best support each student. In collaboration with Mr. Simonet, a task group could be arranged in order to support students that struggle with the challenge that the teacher had given. In the task group, the group members could work together towards the accomplishment of the goal with the support of a counselor (Studer, Ch. 5, 2005).
The NASW Code of Ethics promotes competency of social workers by enriching professional knowledge and skills that can be used in collaborations with school administrators and teachers (NASW, 2008). School faculty can be encouraged to attend workshops and seminars, taught by a social worker, geared towards recognizing disruptive behavior and properly assessing the behavior to address the needs of minority youth. Social workers can demonstrate the differences between violent threats and non-violent threats and how to get control of the situation before it gets out of hand. Teaching school personnel effective grounding techniques to use with students to deescalate a situation will result in fewer out of school suspensions and
Observational Learning Mahroo Ali 19-10662 PSYC 100-D Nazia Asif Takkhar Observation Learning Mahroo Ali Forman Christian College Q1: Discuss the role of observational learning in the development of negative behaviors in adolescents (teenagers). Observational Learning Learning behavior from the naturalistic social situations, environment and family and imitating it, is called Observational Learning. Some common examples of Observational learning that we can observe from our lives are; learning our native language, social values, facial expressions and personality traits of the people around us.
Functionalist theory of education discusses the functions and dysfunctions of education. Schools functions include teaching students how to be a successful member of society and its purpose in society1. This is achieved by teaching skills, norms/values, and networking. The main goal of education is to have individuals be prepared to move from education to occupations. In Reading 5: “Social Reproduction” by David Swartz he discusses how similar power structures that are seen between workers and employers can also be seen between administrators and teachers, moving down to relationships between teachers and students.
The process involves four major steps: attention, retention, reproduction, and motivation. In a classroom setting, students with externalizing behaviour observe their peers’ habits and can model those habits to reflect theirs. They also examine the effect of Observational Learning Theory and imply that social interaction as advocated by educational philosophers Piaget and Vygotsky assist students with externalizing behaviours not only learn from their peers but also, they can learn through interaction in the learning environment. They further suggest when students with externalizing behavior are given the opportunity to teach their fellow students they may acquire a sense of belonging, responsibility, and pride. Vygosky’s Zone of Proximal Development using principles of the guided learning theory asserts that students learn
This model incorporates both the individual and the environment in which the child is situated. It focuses on the contribution of the educational environment to psychosocial and academic adjustment of children. Another example of such work was by Goodenow (1993). Goodenow developed a theoretical framework called “psychological membership” which refers to one’s sense of caring, support, and acceptance in the school environment. The results from her work showed that psychological membership of the child with the school environment was strongly related to achievement.
In a classroom, there is a wide variety of students in regards to their socioeconomic status, motivation, mental health issues, and more. It is a teacher 's job to cater and educate their students, regardless of their home lives, disabilities, or hardships. An at-risk child faces many hardships in school. This can be intensified without the support of their parents, teachers, and school. Through teachers, fostering resilience in their classroom, adhering to student’s interests, and encouraging physical activities, they provide at-risk children the ability to succeed despite the barriers they are faced with.
2.4.2 Student Self-Motivation and Theory As we mentioned in the problem statement part above self-regulatory attributes and self-regulatory processes influenced the strength of the learner’s self-motivation. Self-regulation is formerly from psychology and was defined by Bandura (1988) in terms of three forms of cognitive motivators including causal attributions, outcome expectancies, and cognized goals, each of which is based on its corresponding theory. Initial self-regulation scholars were concentrate on changing people 's dysfunctional behaviors such as aggression, addiction, and some other behavior problems in a healing world. Scholars now in education-related areas have gradually adopted the concept of self-regulation from psychology
For those children who enter their early elementary grades at-risk for academic and social problems, this flexibility allows them the opportunity to engage in more secure attachments with their teachers, which in turn allows these children to have their needs met. Developing a secure attachment with an adult other than their primary caregiver such as their teacher can allow for intimate relationships whereby the child / student may learn to regulate emotion, develop strategies for his behavior, develop self-esteem, explore his environment with confidence, establish effective peer relationships, and perform with better skills on measures of language development, emergent literacy and reading, cognitive development and play, and social interaction with peers and adults (Pianta, 2006). In the current literature, significant investigative attention has been paid to children’s attachment styles with their teachers. For example, as stated above, O’Farrell, Morrison, and Furlong (2006) refers to the differing Attachment styles as Types A, B, and C. Other researches focusing predominantly on the teacher student relationship, have identified similar styles. Using attachment theory, DiPerna, Volpe, & Elliot (2002) refer to the differing styles as secure, avoidant, and
c. Consider the developmental age, language skills and level of competence of the student taking the assessments before assessments are given. g. Assess the effectiveness of their program in having an impact on students’ academic, career and personal/social development through accountability measures especially examining efforts to close achievement, opportunity and attainment gaps” (ASCA, p 3).
Abstract The theory paper I am writing it consist of several different important information dealing with adolescents careers. The purpose of an a counselor is to allow much as possible for an individual to focus and realize his or her limitless gifts. It will allow the connection with social learning and social cognitive career theory and there effects on adolescent career counseling. Two of the psychologist I will be discussing Watson and McMahon.
Questionnaires are completed to assess for baseline symptoms, thoughts, and behaviors at the beginning, mid-point, and end of group. Anecdotal information and surveys play a large role in understanding what is and is not working with SPARCS. This information is gathered from students, parents/guardians, and school staff throughout SPARCS groups. Following up with caregivers and youths to see how they are functioning after the treatment intervention is also important. This can give providers a sense of how well youths retain the concepts of SPARCS.
he issue which is being discussed in this proposal is the young homelessness which is a major issue in Australia. Firstly this proposal will describe the situation of the homeless people in Australia. The homeless people in Australia has been an issue since the arrival of the first fleet. The social stigma on young homeless individuals leads to inequality as they are marginalised from society. A strategy which can help solve this issue is creating more shelter homes and making them easily accessible.
