The main areas of treatment will focus on self-esteem, organizational skills, and social interactions with classmates. Treatment will include both compensatory and remedial strategies. OTA will provide education regarding home strategies for time-management and for organizing homework assignments. OTA will educate both mother and aunt/babysitter to focus on child's strengths to encourage positive behaviors. Remediation strategies include developing a structured schedule and "chunking" tasks to decrease the risk of being overwhelmed.

The career I chose to research is a Child Care Center Administrator. A Child Care Center Administrator is known to be in charge of toddler-aged programs or daycares who share the academic or non-academic requirements. He/she has to be able to love children and be able to work with them while also being able to take care of the business side of the Child Care Program. Some duties that the administrator may hold is monitoring a child’s progress of intellectual and emotional development and assist anyone who has a concern with the program or building. Before each “child care season”, the Administrator has to set certain goals and expectations that they want their students to obtain by the end of their session.
Although Erikson 's theory of identity development is widely cited, there are several social psychological theories providing vital knowledge about identity and its development. The attachment theories emphasize the value of the trust and security that a child learns from his/her mother in infancy. Social learning theories expand the constructs of self concept and self worth as the basis of self description in late childhood. Cognitive development theory describes the age-related processes leading to a child 's limitation before adolescence and competence during adolescence for establishing identity. The foci of these theories are different, reflecting an array of approaches to the issue but all of them present the facets fundamental to human
18. Carlo et al. (2007) in their exploration, the creators inspected the relations among child rearing styles, parental practices, sensitivity, and prosocial practices in young people. Generally speaking, the creators discovered proof that child rearing practices were fundamentally connected with youths' prosocial practices. Be that as it may, the relationship between child rearing practices and prosocial practices happened for the most part through the aberrant relations with sensitivity.
This assignment includes; Strengths, examples and weaknesses of the following psychological research; Bandura et al, Skinner & Loftus and Palmer.In order discuss and come to a conclusion as to why ecological validity is important in psychological research. It is important to note that; Ecological validity is the degree to which behaviours reflect the behaviours of everyday life. In Chapter 3 Bandura et al demonstrated whether children were witnesses to an aggressive display of play. The strengths were that many variables were controlled: such as;“the gender of the model, the time the children observed the model and the behaviour of the model.”(Oates 2012 P.118) This suggests that the model had an effect on the child’s actions because all variables other than the independent variable are controlled.Due to variables being controlled this study is reliable,as this allows for the study to be replicated. However, there are also limitations,Bandura et al’s study involved a child with an adult model, which is very limited in a social situation and there is no interaction between the child and the model at any point other than when aggression is being displayed;Bandura used a laboratory setting which was set up as a play room.
How parents impact child development has been a long interest in the field of psychology. It is evident in recent researches that there are convincing links between parenting styles and the effects these styles have on children’s self-esteem. The term, “parenting styles” refers to behaviours and strategies used by parents to control and socialise their children (Lightfoot, Cole & Cole, 2009). According to Baumrind (1971), there are three types of parenting styles, namely authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive. It was later re-evaluated by Maccoby and Martin (1983) into four styles, which are authoritative, authoritarian, indulgent, and neglectful.
One of the noteworthy factors that should be focused upon in order to gain insight into why people commit injustice to others or engage in pro social behaviour is “Morality”. Morality is internalised by children at a very early age and one of the factors that facilitate the internalization of moral standards is the socialization techniques utilised by their parents. Socialization is the process through which individuals acquire skills needed to function within their social group through the assistance of others, most notably their parents (Grusec, 2002). Through socialization, the individual internalizes societal norms signs and values.One of the key focus areas of socialization practices employed by parents are the internalization of morality
Psychology, being the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, is becoming a more prominent study in younger ages. In child psychology, there are many factors that contribute to the cognitive development of children, adolescents, and young adults. These factors can be categorized into three main topics: environmental factors and how it changes the neurological system, risks of social behavior due to the different mental states, and hormonal changes adding to psychological imbalance. Lifestyle, social relationships, childhood experiences, family life, and what they take into their mind can have multiple effects on their newly forming mental health patterns. Adolescents need constant approval, require love and attention, and a sense of want or belonging to feel needed.
Influence of Imitate Partner Violence and Parenting Practices Summary The research explores the link between imitate partner violence, parenting practices, and the trauma symptoms in children. This area of study is important to observe so that psychologists are able to have some indication of factors that relate to children experiencing problems with stress, coping with trauma, perceiving threats, hyperarousal, avoidance, fear, security, interpersonal relationships, and negative self-attributions (Ehrensaft, Knous-Westfall, & Cohen, 2016). Also, this area is significant because psychologists can use the research to find methods to reduce the impacts of imitate partner violence on children psychologically and find which parenting practices
When counselling children, one of the ethical issues which we come across is about the Informed Consent. So initial phase in securing the privileges of the client is an informed consent report (Corey, Corey, & Callanan, 2011). Vesper and Brock (1991) stated: “The principle of informed consent was initially intended to assist doctors and specialists to disclose therapeutic procedures to patients and to caution them of any dangers or risks that could come about because of treatment. The purpose of this rule was to allow the patient to make a careful, learned decision in the matter of whether to experience the proposed treatment or system or not” (p. 50). Its base is directly embedded into the autonomy and right of self determination of a client
Basic cognitive and social skills will both be improved through higher quality care. When a child is able to perform well in school at an early age, it increases their chances of staying successful throughout their lives as a student. Researchers at the Institute for Research on Poverty concluded, “Children who attend higher-quality child care settings display better cognitive, language, and social competencies on standardized tests.” The Cost, Quality, and Outcomes in Child Care Centers Study, which began in 1993, was a study over time of children in four states, it was designed to test if child care affects a child’s readiness for school. The study population was limited to children in families that had elected center-based care and did not include personal child care facilities that people provide from their own homes. The study found that, children in center-based care tend to perform better in mathematics, language, and social skills in early elementary
