Reflective Paper In my essay I will analyse and reflect on an intervention that happened while on my time at placement. The intervention and background The place I am on placement with is an organisation, which through a program called Therapeutic Recreation can help rebuild the lives of children and their families affected by a serious illness. Children and teenagers can be denied the ordinary experience and participation of growing up, but the psychological encouragement and support at this organization helps these children discover confidence, friendship and trust, enhance self-esteem and gain coping skills. It helps them find the courage and endurance they need to tackle the journey of their illness and the treatment with it and encourage
Good Morning Ellen: I hope all is well with you and the Bronx Prevention programs. I left a message for you on 7/14/17 regarding a possible linkage between Good Shepherd’s Prevention programs and St. Dominic’s Non-Medicaid Care Coordination program. The Care Coordination program works with children with Severe Emotional Behaviors who do not qualify for Health Homes. The idea for the linkage was to provide St. Dominic’s community support for children who are ready for discharge, but would need additional support. It has come to my attention that St. Dominic’s has a Prevention program, and it is the Department of Health’s expectation that they refer the children from the Care Coordination to their own Prevention program first.
Foster Care System Downfalls: The foster care system is setup to provide needs and protect children who have been neglected or abused. The main goal of the system is to take the children out of dangerous homes, and relocate them to a safe home, and to hopefully reunite the children with their biological families. While they are in foster care, their life should be greatly improved. Help should be given to those who are struggling with mental and emotional disabilities. Life skills should be taught to the children in preparation for the future.
I understand now how the developmental theories can introduce a clear understanding about the case conceptualization not only for the children, but also for the adults and the children 's future as well. As Adler-Tapia, R. (2012) stated that “The studies included here are about the overwhelming evidence that the earliest relationship not only has significant impact on the child health and development, but even the quality of the individuals future relationship” (p.39). As a future therapist, I need to look carefully to the child 's parent attachment dynamic to understand the child suffers and gain more information about the child which it could lead me to choose the right intervention. As Adler-Tapia, R. (2012) stated that “In psychotherapy, it is important for the therapist to assess the quality of the child 's attachment with parent. The parent 's attachment and trauma history will provide a great deal of information about the relationship between parent and child” (p. 49).
The increase in youth entering foster care and the poor outcomes of young adults exiting the foster care system continues to be a rising dilemma in America. This qualitative study will examine how Youth and Family Services Division Child Protective Services engage foster youth in early independent living programs and how mentors can help support the goal of youth adult’s transition plan that aids them to become self-sufficient once they exit foster care. Youth and Family Services protect the well-being needs of children who are at risk and provide services to families by increasing their capability to become self-supporting (Youth and Family Services Division, 2015). According to Schleicher (2012), recommended that there is a need to examine
Being taught the proper way to speak about disabilities really helps, I am now trying to speak in “ Person first” so as not to discriminate or place a stigma upon a person’s shoulders. When I eventually become a teacher all the new information I learned about diversity and disabilities in SED 125 such as knowing that not all children learn the same way or that some children may have a bigger struggle than others, and how to build healthy positive relationships with my future student. I will try to apply all the new information to my classroom
There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010). The very first strategy for helping children that become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, is to first build a trusting relationship with them while they are in your class.
Career Analysis: Pediatric Occupational Therapist I have hopes of becoming a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, after I further my education. Pediatric Occupational Therapists treat and help infants, children, and teens, born with physical disabilities or recovering from an injury. It is important to develop or acquire open communication with parents and children in this career. Additionally, you need to have patience with those who have disabilities and in doing repetitive treatments. Occupational Therapists (O.T.s) need to have a respect and understanding for their patients’ struggles and pace.
The intended message of this film is that improving the educational system will better the lives of children and young adults. The thesis statement for this film is that the documentary Race to Nowhere, directed by Jessica Congdon and Vicki Abeles effectively argues about the flawed educational system by providing real life examples, statistics and credible sources to convey how students are negatively affected mentally and physically by the educational system. Throughout the film the directors are trying to persuade parents and teachers not to put so much stress on students and to understand that they are just kids and they can only take so much before it starts to
Thus, family strains strongly affect their violent and delinquent behaviors. This study tends to suggest that policy makers may give importance to prevent delinquency in the society. We firmly believe that our findings are a great help as our guide in understanding deviance and delinquency of adolescence. Suggesting that, they may establish programs to help parents and adolescents control strains and improve their lives. These programs may include seminars for parental discipline and guidance, youth advocates and counseling, and more free tertiary education sponsored by
