The youth are the future of our society. Would it still be possible if nowadays they are being associated to different crimes, delinquencies and misbehaviors? Adolescents tend to be engaged in risk-taking behaviors that could help them to shape their identities, try out new decision-making skills, develop realistic assessment of themselves, and gain acceptance and respect (Ponton, 1997; Jessor, 1991). Unfortunately, some of the risks that adolescents pursue may pose a real threat to their health and well-being.
As a future Guidance Counselor, I would like to gain understanding in the youth and to be open minded of their perspectives are. I think that it is very unique that when helping an individual they feel comfortable speaking to me about their personal life. Another great technique that I will use in the future is self-control. In my case I think self-control is important because it helps me as a Guidance Counselor not state a fact when it is not right. It is my top priority to restate the question so that I will gain
In many ways the term “resistance” alone serves as an emblematic description of the contradictory, oscillating dynamic of youth. Society labels youth as a period of great resistance: resistance to parents, to institutions and education, and to the cultural norms of modern society. At the same time, youth is seen as a vulnerable period of blind impulsivity and naive acquiescence. Many understandings of resistance are contradictory. Young individuals are criticized for rebelling from what is expected of them but also seen as susceptible to the influence of peers, media, and delinquent behavior.
Therapeutic Relationships are not black and white and creating a positive relationship will take skill and work. Unfortunately, data is scarce on the effects of therapeutic relationships. However, we as educators, have first hand experience in the effectiveness of positive relationships and connecting with people. There are many reasons why the relationship between the client and counselor is considered to be extremely important in a session.
The application of an intersectional analysis will help me demonstrate the intersections that stood in the way of this individuals’ success like: identity establishment, social classes, gender roles, and racial discrimination. By understanding the experience of Panchito and his family, I can have a better insight of how to effectively engage and motivate students that I might have in my classroom who are like Panchito and struggle with their literacy abilities. The intersections that stand in the way of success for immigrant youth can be challenging to overcome. However with the proper support and guidance, these hurdles can be surpassed. “For immigrant adolescence, the stresses associated with developing a sense of identity are accompanied and aggravated by the challenges of existing and growing up in disparate cultures.”
Parents have a key role in being able to help in several ways, as they are very influential in their Children’s lives. One important thing parents can do is motivate and encourage their children in talks about real life. Parents can point out the unrealistic things they see in an effort to help their children understand that things are not like that in life. Parents should help their children figure out what is real and not real so that as they grow up they can see these things for themselves. To promote the feeling of self-worth, not like the unrealistic things you see, such as
It is imperative to spread an awareness on the resilience gap of these abused children and to educate communities on how to create environments that foster resilience for these children. One of the contributing factors of resilience is for these children to have a stable and caring relationship with an adult, which is not always available for these children, especially those that are removed from their home for safety reasons and are bounced between homes; however, it is something that can be created with time and effort. There are existing mentoring programs, but more research needs to be done to ensure their reach is catching the needs of these abused children, perhaps reevaluating existing programs and expanding them to ensure the needs of this vulnerable population are met; hence creating that stable, caring
The long terms effects of bullying can be damaging to a child or adolescent. Children who learn they are able to get away with aggression and violence will continue to do so in adulthood (“What are the Effects of Bullying?”). Long term effects of bullying include: difficulty in putting trust in others, self-esteem issues, increased tendency to want to be alone, and seeing one’s self as being victimized, thin-skinned, and overly sensitive (“The Long Term Effects of Bullying”). Children who bully or even children that are bullied can be aggressive towards their spouse or child in adulthood (“Effects of Bullying”). Those who bully are more likely to have convictions and violations as adults (“Effects of Bullying”).
To do this, with the exception of in instances of high unpredictability, manhandle, or hostility, parents would be best to act like grown-ups and set aside their distinction to fulfill their child’s long haul needs. Two guardians working it out and being practical is what is best for your kid. It's an out-dated thought, yet as a parent, we surrender the privilege to do what we need when we need. Your children need to be our priority. According to a research, this is what happens at different ages of a child when parents
The authors continue to affirm that in closing the achievement gap, schools are required to use accountability methods to show student performance. Using data can aid in this process. When implementing great management skills, policy makers and other counseling leaders acknowledge the power of data to demonstrate academic achievement, and to promote counselor’s role in school reform. As a result of data collection and analysis, student will enhance their performance and close the achievement gap.
Plutarch has a lot of different recommendation for parents to follow so that they can live virtuous lives. The importance of training children that Plutarch is trying to get across is that parents are suppose to be the role models for children. As parents it is very important that they follow the rules because if they do not then how can they expect their children to.
Also the practitioner would need to work in partnership with the parents at all times because the parents are the most important people in the child’s life and the parents of the children know their child better than you do. Also in a setting I attended before the practitioner and the mother of a chid liaised in order to put a sticker chart with rewards to help improve the child’s behaviour. The idea of the sticker chart came from B.F. Skinners theory which was positive and negative reinforcement: if children were rewarded for good behaviour then the behaviour is likely to continue. (Bruce T, Meggitt C, 2007). Communication would also be essential while planning for the children because if the child is involved with any other professional then the educational and milestone developments must be communicated between multi-agencies to ensure that everyone is aware of the stage the child is at in his/her learning.
(Corey & California State University, 2013). In most of my sessions as an upcoming vocational rehabilitation counselor you will find me using CBT because it has a specific agenda. It is a directive approach in the sense that we show we model positive behavior to our clients which can help them obtain their goal. It is a process were we as therapist we teach our clients how work through negative situations and turn them into a positive experience for our clients. All of us find ourselves upset about things when, in fact the situation isn’t like we think it is and being aware of this issue would help us not waste our time upsetting ourselves.
