Introduction: In the growing field of occupational therapy, there are many issues that come about that are of ethical concern. Occupational therapists work to help patients achieve a self-sufficient and satisfying life through the use of assessment and treatment. They help patients who may be suffering from a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder and work to help develop, recover, and maintain skills of daily living. Since this field is very hands on and patient oriented, there are ethical concerns that are brought about in almost all areas of practice. One of the most concerning ethical issues is working on a skill that is outside the OT scope of practice.
McGuire-Wise is an excellent clinical supervisor because she is aware of my strengths and capabilities and she pushes me to see those strengths and capabilities. Her support and guidance helps me to see that I have a lot to offer my clients. She is also culturally sensitive when supervising me because she is very open and willing to learn from me. I believe this behavior enhanced my counseling skill because I am also more open and willing to learn from my clients. Mrs. McGuire-Wise’s patience, support, and knowledge are very encouraging because it motivates me to become a better counselor.
Gaining the key knowledge and competencies in relation to recovery is crucial for professionals, such as Social Workers, to have. Competencies are defined as the skills, attitudes, behaviour and knowledge that is required for mental health practitioners, and these competencies apply to everyone, regardless of culture and age (O’Hagan, 2001). The competencies were established and developed mainly by service users, as their input on their recovery is significant (O’Hagan, 2001). Social Workers in the mental health field have the opportunity to influence and encourage the process of recovery, and it is important to have a positive influence, which is why there are key recovery competencies and knowledge that are required (Harvey, 2006). Past research
Redmond (1996) written by Justice Paul Stevens states, “effective psychotherapy depends upon an atmosphere of confidence and trust in which patient is willing to make frank and complete disclosure of facts, emotions, memories and fears” (Corey et al., 2015). It is significant for clients to feel safe enough to be able to open entirely about thought and emotions, and for this safety to be achieved the client needs to know whatever is being shared will be confidential. Confidentiality protects both the counselling relationship and the strength of the therapeutic alliance. (Isaacs & Stone, 2001). The alliance is not only the emotional tie between clients and counselor, it also includes tasks and goals (Horvath, 1994).
There are many types of therapy one could undergo for this disorder, but in Dwight’s case, I believe the best option would be Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT will help Dwight regulate his emotions, developing his impulse control, and improve his behavior. Many that deal with this form of autism tend to struggle with depression and anxiety. This therapy can help him deal with those struggles by changing his perception or thoughts throughout change in cognition. A therapist can help reduce Dwight’s obsessive behavior and outbursts, while helping him learn to manage his feelings.

Intervention and Theories Intervention and theories are best supported after a multidimensional assessment is completed. Assessments provide a historical overview and identifies all areas of concerns, gaps in care, and any other goals for improvement. The member has an extensive history of sexual, physical, and psychological abuse. Strength based theory is the best approach when working with the member because it will provide a foundation to build interventions upon. "Integration of strengths within the complex and often negatively skewed narrative may re socialize potential clients to perceive that psychotherapy is not only about untwisting their distorted thinking or restoring their troubled relationships, it is also about learning
This condition helps people get the most out of their counselling session and in turn this helps them reach their full potential as they feel valued as the counsellor accepts them for who they are. Congruence is also known as genuineness and according to Rogers “it is the most important attribute in counselling due to the way that it underpins the experiencing of unconditional positive regard and empathy”. Seligman (2006) states that if a counsellor’s body language does not reflect what they are saying, clients will pick up on this and it will reflective on the counsellor client relationship as trust could be lost. Congruence means the counsellor needs to be real and
This approach takes into account that the trauma the victims have faced are profound and complex and service will be given under an individualistic and collaborative approach. The primary goal here is to simply encourage empowerment and recovery while concurrently treating mental health difficulties that need to be treated for the long term health of the victim. Treatment will fall under the category of individual and group therapy with an emphasis on cognitive behavioral therapy as it has the largest evidence-base support in its effectiveness. (TTHW) Furthermore, within the service of mental health is also the reward of forming an interpersonal relationship. Mental health providers will strive to build appropriate relationships with the victims as not only does this goal create a healthy bond between the provider and the victim, but it encourages healthy social

In turn, as a cognitive message, CBT and a client centered approach helped clients to also identify and respond to not only their individual need but the needs of others in a more empathic, compassionate, and accepting way. Each article includes a randomized cohort but combined the interventions and adaptation of CBT and a client centered approach in order to examine research and provide feedback to substance abuse clients. As we concluded in class often and integration of different models or techniques can play an important role in the application and delivery of a therapeutic intervention and after reading the articles I believe the integration was effective and helped limit the amount of drugs clients used during therapy. In the end, CBT and a client centered approach both take into consideration the conscious mind while allowing clients to examine their individual problems at hand and use of drugs. From what we covered in class and from reading the articles the evidence goes hand in hand and explores how these combined therapies help individuals explore they have the ability to determine their own futures and are not necessarily a product of their past or previous
