Mr. Hanson teaches third grade. January was a cold month but Febuary has been cold and wet! His school has had multiple indoor recesses in the past few weeks, due to the bad weather. To Mr. Hanson it seems that behavior problems have been increasing and his patience has been decreasing. This has been obvious to even him as he has gradually been disciplining with less and less compassion for his students. It seems the same students that struggle with reasonable expectations. In addition to this, this behavior protocols he has used this year no longer have the effectiveness they once did. Spring break is still weeks away. What kind of intervention would you recommend for Mr. Hanson?
Explain how different types of interventions can promote positive outcomes for children and young people where development is not following the expected pattern.

During this weeks group members explored/utilized a Relapse Prevention Quiz in order to assess their knowledge of key aspects of relapse, i.e., cravings, substituting drugs, romantic relationships. The quiz was composed of 20, true and false questions followed by an explanation of each answer. The results of the quiz caused both debate and discussion in the group as each members personal opinion of the assessment was
I researched Greenville’s availability of local community resources/protective factors for adolescents and chose to advocate towards building a YMCA in this area. The YMCA provides equal and easy access to its members (F.3). I found that this organization have core values and programs (prevention and treatment) which promotes favorable human growth and development as well as substance abuse prevention through advocacy and education (C.1., C.10.). This non-profit organization offers various community activities, education, and service work for both members and non-member (D.4.). The project itself demonstrated my support for individual, public and government relations, and equity among all. I described certain aspects of mental health and addiction such as protective factors, prevention, intervention and advocacy (C.1., C.10.). Being able to conduct research and prepare an effective plan through strategies to promote understanding of substance abuse and protective factors, shows improvement in my support for client advocacy (E.6). My attempt is to influence Greenville as well as other surrounding areas (E.6). Understanding my role as a counselor to advocate is stressed throughout my project, for instance the actual sending of these letters proves my strong desire to decrease substance abuse among
There are several methods of delivery for school-based interventions depending on the population that they wish to affect, which can result in varying levels of effectiveness. They can be delivered universally or can be targeted towards students identified as at-risk for particular disorders or problem behaviors (Franklin et al. 2012). In universal interventions, all students participate in the intervention, regardless of their level of risk. For example, Bierman et al. (2010) performed a study on a universal SEL program called Fast Track PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies), which was delivered to all students in the first through the third grade. Teachers received training and continued coaching to integrate SEL into their curriculum
Research studies on current addiction treatment show that programs are typically are divided into several general types. Addiction is viewed in the context of an individual’s social and psychological deficits, and treatment focuses on developing personal accountability and responsibility as well as socially productive lives (Drug). While the methods for treatment and individual programs continue to evolve and diversify, there should be more rules and regulations when it comes to treatment. As of right now, long-term residential treatment provides care 24 hours a day, generally in non-hospital settings. Treatment is designed to help residents examine damaging beliefs, self concepts, and destructive patterns of behavior and adopt new, more harmonious and constructive ways to interact with others (Drug). This type of treatment is a step in the right direction in solving the problem, but there is so much more that could be done. Along with developing even more personalized methods for treatment, there should be a set time that a patient must remain under treatment and periodic follow-up check-ins once a person is released as “relapse is common in addiction treatment, with relapse rates being between 40 and 60 percent,”
Recent legislation requires schools to implement a Response to Intervention (RTI) model that is based on multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). The goal of RTI is to identify students early who are struggling academically or behaviorally and provide appropriate interventions to prevent these challenges from becoming more serious and detrimental to their success. Under the traditional system, students may not receive extra services until a problem becomes severe, and they meet criteria for a special education qualification. RTI helps schools identify children earlier using systematic and scientific universal screeners of all children. Therefore, RTI gives students who are at-risk the opportunity to receive less intensive intervention services,

Patient attended AMS Relapse Prevention Group on Wednesday at 6 am. The topic of the group was “Evaluating Strengths and Weakness in your Recovery Program.” Drug Counselor begins the lesson by assessing how he has been doing. Counselor stated, “It’s nice to see you again. How have you been doing since your last group or counseling session? How was your weekend (free time)? Do you have any questions or positive or negative thoughts regarding your recovery lifestyle/treatment? Counselor asked Pt. if he maintains his sobriety which he responded with a “yes.” Pt. verbalized how the program decrease his take home privileges and no one gave him an explanation. Pt. stated, “I need someone to tell me the truth.” Counselor encourage Pt. to identify
Response to Intervention is a multi-tiered instructional approach to early identify students who are experiencing difficulties in daily classroom learning and are not meeting grade-level expectations. As a student moves across each tier the academic intervention changes and becomes more concentrated. The purpose of RTI is to recognized students when they begin to struggle and provide them with a high quality instructional approach, to avoid the unnecessary LD label to students who can be helped to improve their academic performance.Within RTI students’ development are recorded through curriculum base progress monitoring. Some elements of RTI are as followed; all students are screen entering the school, there are three tiers of increasingly intense instruction, the first tier occurs in regular education, continuously monitoring students’ progress through objective tests. This monitoring is used to determine changes in how the child is taught, continuing progress monitoring throughout instruction and evaluating the changes. Involving the parent throughout the process and following the timelines of IDEA 2004, unless both the parent and teacher agree to
Over the past one and half month, the class of PDE 502 (Counselling and Career Education) has taught me some major lessons for life in dealing with the clients in response to their emotional needs. The role of a counsellor is not unlike that of a friend where by it is nurtured by being in each other’s company, talking over everyday issues and sharing feelings. However, what sets a counsellor apart is their experience and the ability to apply counselling theories and techniques to assist people in gaining awareness, insight and explore ways of solving their own issues.
Student counselors have been around since 1907 in the United States and remain a strong force in helping students determine future goals and careers. On average, student counselors make roughly $54,000 annually while maintaining a vital role in the decisions students make. With agencies and nonprofit organizations such as the ASCA (an organization dedicated to assisting any form of relations with student counselors to their students), that are now dedicated to ensure students have counselors as a form of assistance to fortify career plans, the rates of success have been skyrocketing. There are well over 230,000 counselors nationwide in approximately 33,000 different schools that follow the ASCA guidelines to reassure the nation is *on the same
It is essential that younger generations receive a quality education. Children all over the United States of America are being deprived of their schooling. Not all schools receive equal funding. Kids who grow up in less wealthy areas are less likely to receive a good education. Children are being set up for failure. They 're funding is based on the wealth of the area they live in. Kids who might have excelled in certain areas with the right tutoring will never get the opportunity to without the proper funding. This is a shame to see talent going to waste. Think of all of the possibilities that these children could have created for the world with the right education. The United States has to invest in the youth. Keep the chain going to better the standard of life. That 's what the future is all about. We must improve on our previous generations to make the world a better place to live in. The United States must rehaul the out of date education system to compete with other top nations to give children an opportunity to education with equal funding so they can learn to the best of their ability.
