They would need to shift their thoughts and focus by learning the ways on how to process positive and adaptive thoughts. Their communications skills have to change in order to improve and modified the behavior that is dysfunctional (Charlie Walter Memorial Trust (2017). The family as a unit and individual needs to learn how to self-regulate. According to (Thomlinson, 2016) give us an example of implementing Cognitive Behavioral Family therapy. Family problems must be defined on specifics behaviors.
This modality emphasizes that change and dysfunction lie within the family structure. This theory assumes that Tracey’s foster family and biological family can solve their own problems with professional support and guidance. Unlike CBT, by identifying the foster family’s strengths, the social worker can build upon these strengths so that the family develops new skills to handle Tracey’s school transition and immersion into the new family system. This modality is also time limited and has an expectation of change. Utilizing this modality will allow Tracey’s foster parents a safe place to explore their perspectives on interracial couples, which could influence how the family interacts with others, Tracey and themselves.
The Family Systems Theory Family systems theory is a framework for understanding families and their strengths and dysfunctions. The strengths identified among family relations can be used to help solve existing problems. The same applies with problems identified. The family system theory is based on Bowen’s theory which argues that people cannot leave independent of each other’s network of relationships. People within a family are connected emotionally, which affects their overall well being and social relations and behaviour.
As stated by Trotter (2013), “The Collaborative Family Work model draws particularly on three key principles: problem-solving…pro-social modelling…and role clarification” (p. 54). Skilled welfare practitioners can provide assistance to clients experiencing difficulties within their family dynamic. Trotter’s (2013) Collaborative Family Work model offers strategies working with families and involuntary clients, with the emphasis of collaboration between practitioner and family members in developing strategies for learning new skills to improve their lives and situation. The model also prioritises the choice of goals which are set by the family members to resolve issues through therapy using strategies such as Trotter’s (2013) RIDGES process which
The Structural Family Therapy Model, stated by Minuchin, “explains how families maintain problematic behaviors…” along with what is written by Minuchin and Fishman, “…which leads to symptom reduction because a new structure develops in the family…” (as cited in Reiter, 2016, p. 25). This model brings attention to how the behaviors and individual roles of family members changed due issue(s) that presents itself within the family structure. The issue of L.E.’s substance use is the cause in the change of roles as the client continues her substance use. As L.E. is the mother of B.V., and B.V. is her adult daughter, but is also a mother to her son; hostility between the two, because of the presenting issue.
In order for the intervention to be successful, there need to be goals established at the beginning of treatment when working with childhood trauma. Long-term goals for childhood trauma include developing an awareness of how childhood issues have affected addiction, learn how childhood trauma resulted in interpersonal problems and addictions, maintain a program of recovery that is free from addiction and the negative effects, and resolve past issues so that there is less fear, anger and depression which will assist in the individual having a greater sense of self-worth and confidence (Perkinson, Jongsma, & Bruce, 2014). The following table provides objectives and therapeutic interventions for childhood trauma as discussed by Perkinson et al
I am a Family Service Coordinator. We help people in every stage of life cope with all types of challenges. If you think about it, social work lives in the actual world of probability.

Strengths perspective, conflict perspective, and empowerment theory were chosen to use in our domestic violence shelter. We believe that these two perspectives and theory best explain human behavior and help us as social workers to understand to our clients. Each client behavior is multidimensional, meaning that we will implement multiple perspectives and theories throughout our practice. The strengths perspective “focuses on the strengths on the client, but not on the problem or sickness or diagnostic label” (Morton, 2017). Strengths was chosen because as domestic violence victims, these individuals need to become aware of the positive aspects in their lives.
In this stage, leaders make improvements in the strategies, and collation group can support people to adapt to the change (Small, et al., 2016). The leaders should make sufficient arrangement to continue the change process because people tends to go back to old ways of practice until the new change becomes the organizational culture (Mbamalu & Whiteman, 2014). If the desired change is not achieved, revision of plan might require meeting the goal. To create the zero tolerance to workplace bullying, the nurse leader can continually support staffs for open communication, the copies of antibullying policies can be made available in the unit. The leader should role model the positive behaviour with staffs which may influence the behaviour of the staffs in the unit.
Everyone’s recovery journey is different, which is why it is important to look at the individual and consider what interventions best suit service users, as a good intervention for someone may be a bad one for another person. Recovery starts when people realize that each individual’s recovery differs and is unique (Bland & Wyder, 2014). It is important for Social Workers to establish a positive relationship with service users and to understand that family participation is really important for recovery, as they are one of the biggest and most important support service users’ need, and acknowledging this will also lead to a more effective and appropriate interventions (Anthony, 1993). It is alothe Social Workers role to support service users’ families as well, as they may need assistance themselves (Bland & Wyder, 2014). The notion that service users are in charge and own their recovery journeys in personal recovery may suggest that families do not have a part or a place in a family member’s recovery and that they are not helpful or useful, which raises questions about the real role of family members in recovery (Bland & Wyder, 2014).
Beginning Phase Engagement Process To engage the client and the family, the therapist should provide interpersonal warmth to avoid barriers in the therapist-client-family relationship, and for a successful treatment outcome. Therapist should be empathetic to their client’s and the family’s situation, be culturally competent and respectful, build a collaborative relationship, know the client’s and their families’ needs for treatment, and ensure their understanding of the therapeutic process (Rodriguez, Hoagwood, Gopalan, Olin, McKay, Marcus, & Legerski, 2012). An important engagement strategy is to be empathetic of the client’s and their family’s experience and current situation. To truly understand their feelings, therapist should appreciate

The main thing seen as reading through this article is how it discusses the way families work through a stressful or even devastating life situation.

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
