3. Production training. Clinicians instruct the child to tell them which picture to pick up. If the child produces the same word for the two pictures then the clinician will pick up the same picture twice, therefore the clinician will pick the non- intended word the child produced. If the child is not able to articulate one of the targeted sound then a motor approach could be
Mary Ainsworth is best known for her elaboration on the work of John Bowlby and the Attachment Theory. Psychologist Mary Ainsworth created an assessment technique called the ‘Strange Situation Classification’ (SSC) to investigate how attachments might differ between children. The procedure ‘Strange Situation’ was conducted by observing the behaviour of a child in a series of eight episodes lasting approximately 3 minutes each. During the test, the child is brought into a room with their mother and the child is allowed to explore the room and play with the toys. Then a stranger enters the room and talks to the mother, Then the mother leaves the infant with the stranger for 3 minutes.
A child protection worker is assigned. The person who reported the suspicion is interviewed. The child protection worker views CAS records for past or present contact with the child, family and/or the alleged abuser. The child protection worker sees the child to evaluate his/her immediate safety. The child’s parent/caregiver is interviewed by the child protection worker (with police, if suitable), unless the parent/caregiver is the alleged abuser.
When applying the crisis intervention principle to the crisis response of children considering committing. “Children exposed to traumatic stress exhibit a variety of responses. In very young children, diagnosable posttraumatic stress reactions may be absent but more nonspecific anxiety reactions may be present” (Gammonley & Dziegielewski, 2006, p. 24). In Miami they utilize the Roberts’s model to address people teen and young adults considering committing suicide. The crisis intervention hotline offers a crisis intervention team that is certified in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), risk assessment and the importance of active listening.
A psychologist who specializes in learning issues might test the child for any learning disabilities. The child might be asked to read words and do rhyming, spelling, and writing. The last step would be to put it all together and decide if the child has dyslexia. They might need tutoring called phonological awareness training. Some ways to help a child that has dyslexia is to read out loud with them everyday.
Video Reaction Paper: Addiction Severity Index (ASI) The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is a semi-structured interview in which the counselor utilizes techniques to get information about a client’s addiction. There are a series of questions that are asked, the counselor must understand the content of each question in order to get the best response from the client. However, this interview cannot be used for diagnosing purposes. This is a starting point for case conceptualization and treatment planning.

SGRP may enhance critical complex interviewing skills related to suicide assessment and undercovering domestic violence across all health care disciplines, which is a goal that has not yet been achievable. Clinical interviewing skills can be taught and skill retention tested using both the traditional individual role-playing and in scripted group role-playing. Supervisors can use SGRP to train up to 28 trainees synchronously in interviewing assignments as complex as uncovering domestic violence and sensitively addressing suicidal ideation. This method gets rid of “acting” from role-play
Across the country, middle and high school students, parents, and educators are uninformed about sexual assault; allowing sexual assault to be unaddressed. Sexual assault education for students may vary through one school district than the other, it may be comprehensive in one classroom and nonexistent in another. Not having an education in sexual assault awareness causes confusion for a student when they need to report. Research shows that eighty percent of high school counselors feel unprepared to address incidents of abuse. Senators Claire McCaskill and Tim Kaine introduced the “Teach Safe Relationships Act, which requires schools to teach sexual education, sexual assault, and dating violence” (___).
This aggression wasn't cued by a specific antecedent and her teachers said that Adriana didn't register any emotions throughout the day, for example if she hurt someone to spoiler their play. Time outs were used as punishment for Adriana’s unwanted behavior, but it didn't change her anti social behavior as the year continued. Adriana has also been aggressive toward neighborhood kids as well, so the parents have cut off all play with other kids because they don't know how to handle the aggressive incidents, and want her to start at a new school so she can get a fresh start. Adriana is underdeveloped in terms of her emotional self awareness and empathy
Psychoeducational Testing Interviews A special education teacher and mother of three children, one with an intellectual disability of Down syndrome, diagnosed as mild and high functioning, participated in interviews with the author. The interview questions focused on the respondent’s experience and views on psychoeducational testing, which determines a student’s cognitive abilities and academic performance levels that ultimately yields recommendations for instructional planning (Bell, S. M., 2002). In conclusion, the interview includes a reflection of the two interviews through a compare and contrast as well as how the interviewees’ perspective on psychoeducational testing corresponds to the author’s personal and professional roles. Background
There are several services that are available for children who witness or are effected by domestic violence including counseling, supervised visitation and exchange, and shelters. There are four types of counseling that are available to children. The first is play therapy which is for children who are not able to talk yet or who are afraid to speak about their experiences. Play therapy allows the child to express themselves and what happened through playing or drawing. The second type of counseling is psychoeducational group therapy by age; this therapy helps teach children about domestic violence to them change their beliefs that the abuse between their parents is their fault.
Adam Lanza began perseverative hand washing, avoiding contact with other people, and becoming increasingly fearful. By fifth grade, AL had written and submitted 'The Big Book of Granny ' — a significant and violent text — and following that school year, his struggles began to escalate." With these precursors to crime very, very prevalent in his childhood, many would suggest to seek medical help and treatment for his behaviors. Although Lanza did remain in special education services beginning in preschool, he was soon after released when the specialists believed he had “met all the speech standards” according to ABC News.
The purpose of this paper is to assess the impact of trauma on an 11-year old male. Initially mental health and healthcare professionals believed that children did not experience long-term negative responses to traumatic events. It was thought that children would undergo initial reactive responses to the trauma, but only for a short time and then they would have complete recovery (Bodvarsdottir, Elklit, & Gudmundsdottir, 2006). The case presented in this paper looks at the lasting impact of a tornado on a child’s mental and physical well being. Case
