Behavioral, Cognitive, or Reality Theory Counseling

 

Behavioral, Cognitive, or Reality Theory Counseling

For this discussion, you will choose a theory from this unit and then create a scenario in which you are counseling a client, applying techniques from that theory. The details of the counseling session scenario are up to you; however, note that your client must come from a diverse social or cultural background. Write the script of your hypothetical counseling session. The script must have at least 20 responses—10 from the client and 10 from you as the counselor. Your responses must align with the philosophy and goals of your chosen theory and with the multicultural contributions or strengths of that theory. Use your Theories of Counseling Chart to be sure that your interventions align with your theory’s key concepts, theory of change, interventions, and its vision of client and counselor roles. You will present the following:

· A brief introduction to the client scenario.

· The theory you are choosing to apply, with a brief rationale for why it is appropriate for the client and his or her presenting problem.

· Your script, which illustrates your chosen theory.

· A paragraph discussing how concepts you applied in the script related to the theory’s key concepts, theory of change, interventions, and vision of client and counselor roles.

· A paragraph discussing how your client’s social or cultural background affected your application of your chosen approach.

· Cite readings and videos from this unit that you used to understand how to apply your chosen theory and its techniques.

Upload your Theories of Counseling Chart as an attachment to your post. It should be complete through Reality Therapy.

This discussion response should be a minimum of 500 words and maximum of 700 words.

Response Guidelines

You should respond to the posts of at least two of your peers for each discussion question. These responses should be substantive and contribute to the conversation by respectfully asking questions, engaging in discussion, and offering varying viewpoints. Please review the Faculty Expectations for any other requirements for the peer responses.

Generalizability is the extent to which research findings from your sample population can be applicable to a larger population

Discussion 2: Generalizing Study Results (No More Than 500 words)

Generalizability is the extent to which research findings from your sample population can be applicable to a larger population. There are many best practices for ensuring generalizability.

Two of those are making sure the sample is as much like the population as possible and making sure that the sample size is large enough to mitigate the chance of differences within the population.

For this Discussion, read the case study titled “Social Work Research: Program Evaluation” and consider how the particular study results can be generalizable.

Post your explanation of who the sample is. Also explain steps researchers took to ensure generalizability. Be sure to discuss how the study results could possibly be generalizable. Please use the resources to support your answer.

Researching Counseling Credentials

Locate your state laws and regulations relating to the five areas of practice listed below. Use Capella’s Licensure Resources, linked in the Resources for this discussion. The laws regulating the practice of counseling in your state can be found on your state counseling board website, or through your state counseling association. School counselors should check with the state board of education.

1. Review the state laws and regulations relating to the practice of counseling for your specialization. Within these regulations, locate the specific areas relating to:

· Internship requirements (may include the fieldwork internship you complete during your degree program as well as any post-degree internship hours that you may need to collect).

· Supervision (who can function as a supervisor in your state and what are the requirements for being a supervisor).

· Licensing and certification (requirements and application process).

· Continuing education requirements for licensed/credentialed counselors (how many hours will you need and how often).

· Information about grounds for suspension or revocation of a license (list three specific things that can get you into trouble in your state).

2. Address how these laws impact counseling professionals in general.

Please be sure to cite the specific legal codes. For example: the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) #4757-13 discusses the licensing of counselors. Your discussion should be written in your own words only using quotations (set off with quotation marks) when absolutely necessary to capture specific details. See “Direct Quoting, Paraphrasing, Summarizing,” linked in the Resources, to help you distinguish how these three methods of integrating the literature are different.

Response Guidelines

Respond to the initial discussion posts of two other learners. What reactions do you have to the ideas the learner has presented? Include examples from your own experience to support your perspective, and raise questions to continue the dialogue.

Your responses ought to include original evaluation, synthesis, or analysis of the topic, and contribute to the weekly discussion in a meaningful way. You must complete all discussion topics and reply to your peers’ posts. Refer to the Discussion Board Rubric under Course Resources for additional requirements.
    Discussion Topic 1: Prison Capacity
    Prison officials describe prison capacity in three distinct fashions: (1) rated capacity, (2) operational capacity and (3) design capacity. To ensure you achieve full credit and meet the learning objectives of the unit, please summarize all three of these terms using research. Then, discuss how to reduce prison overcrowding and explain why your idea would be successful, using research to substantiate your opinion. Cite your sources using APA formatting.

response to samatha:

Rated Capacity means the number of offenders/bodies that a facility can hold at one time due to the number of beds. The officers do a daily count to see what the housing number is at to not only account for all inmates, but to know when they are getting close to maximum capacity.

Operational Capacity is the actual number that the jail can safely hold/house without going over capacity and without compromising inmate or deputy safety.

Design Capacity is the design or format of the jail and how it is arranged. It also gives tells the number of offenders it can hold with still being in code.

In order to ease the overcrowding of jails, low crime offenders should be either given probation depending on their background or can be placed on an electronic monitoring system type sentence. That way they can still attend and maintain a job, counseling, and have family support. I also strongly agree with the work release program that allows offenders that have committed non violent CM’s to be released for work and report back for night time. Placing someone in jail to serve time for minor traffic violations or CM’s just adds more bodies and takes up the room that is needed for violent offenders.

response to resha:

Prison capacity is described in three different functions. The first being Rated Capacity. Rated Capacity is the number of inmates that a prison would be able to handle according to the judgment of experts. (Schmalleger, 2017). The second is Operational Capacity. Operational Capacity is the number of inmates that a prison would be able to effectively accommodate based on management considerations. (Schmalleger, 2017). Tthe last one is Design Capacity. Design Capacity is the number of inmates a prison was supposed to be able to hold when it was built. (Schmalleger, 2017).

Prison overcrowding is one of the biggest issues in prisons today. There are 219,000 inmates in federal prisons compared to the 25,000 in 1980. About half are drug offenses. (Knafo,2013). I personally do not feel that drug offenders should be given so much time. I am also not suggesting that they should not be held responsible for the decision that they have made but I’ve seen a murderer get 12 years and personally know drug offenders that have gotten 20 plus years. It is crazy to me. I think drug offenders should serve less time for their sentences and that would free up plenty space and reduce some of the overcrowding. If they were to send 20 percent fewer drug offenders to prison, the federal government would save $1.29 billion and prisons would save 125,000 bed years. (A bed year is a year worth of prison time from one person. (knafo,2013).

Unit 10 Discussion Topic 2Discussion TopicTask: Reply to this topicDiscussion Topic 2: Reflection
As you complete your work in this course, reflect on the outcomes and your personal goals for the course. This is the time for you to determine what areas of criminal law interest you and why. This is not intended to be a mere recap of the course. The emphasis here is what you have personally learned and how it will affect your professional goals. Discussing what you have learned during the term will not only help you better process the information, but will help you enhance each other’s learning experience. Please reflect on the previous units and post a brief essay that addresses the following questions.
Reflection:

  • What prior knowledge did you bring to this course?
  • What were the most important new ideas you encountered and how did they change your understanding of this course?
  • Did you meet the outcomes in your work on this course? Is there any outcome with which you still need support or assistance?
  • What have you learned from your discussions and collaborations with your fellow students?
  • In what specific ways can you use the knowledge you have gained in this course in your chosen profession? What are your strengths and opportunities for growth in this area?
  • What questions or concerns do you have about what you have studied?
  • What areas of the subject would you like to continue to explore, and why?
  • response to courtney: Hey everyone. When I came into class I knew some about criminal justice from having law enforcement friends and doing my own kind of research and now I feel so much more educated on this subject! I have been wanting to be a police officer and now after learning so much about the court system and legal terms, I am thinking about taking my career into possibly another direction by going to work in the courts. I learned a lot from the interesting assignments we did as well as our discussions, it was really good to see people taking in the same information I was and seeing it in someone else’s opinion. I think over all I did pretty good with keeping up with the deadlines but now I see that sometimes I should start a little sooner, but as most of y’all, working a full time job with two children is hard so I always felt like I was rushing things. I enjoyed this class so much and I am sad it’s over, maybe I will see you all in another class! Thanks for all the support and help!
  • response to stephanie:

The only prior knowledge that I had before taken this course was based on my personal interaction with police officers and the criminal justice system. I have developed a new positive outlook on law enforcement and our justice system. I think the most important new idea that I encountered would have to be everything regarding my civil rights. Before this class, I did not know much about the rights I have and I think everyone should be educated on them. I believe that I met most of the outcome in my work on this course.

The interaction between my classmates during the discussions has given me a better understanding of the criminal justice system, especially the elements of search and seizure. In the psychology profession, I can use information I learned from this class to help individuals that are involved with the criminal justice system. I really would like to continue to explore punishments provided by the courts, specifically the death penalty.

Describe why this is a clinical problem in your environment

 

Therapeutic Nursing Interventions Paper

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to define a clinical problem, review the literature for appropriate research supported nursing interventions, critique current practice and provide a plan for changing or adapting clinical practice.

Role: You are an RN working in a clinical environment. Each unit has its own ‘way of doing things’. As an emerging leader, you are charged with questioning WHY things are done the way they are. Is there literature to support the way things are being done or should changes be made based on evidence?

Audience: When writing this paper, your audience is your peers. Write in a way that utilizes professional terms, but also explains terms and concepts. Just as you are learning as you compose the paper, you will want to write in such a way that a peer could understand what you are presenting.


Guidelines:

Introduction. Introduce the reader to the concepts being presented and the issue to be discussed. Describe the specific settings and the practices within the setting. (For example, ‘a 40 bed med-surg unit in an urban area’).

Present the Clinical Problem. Identify a clinical problem in your practice [i.e., pain, nausea, depression, anxiety, medication errors, delerium, sleep deprivation etc.] Note: This is not a professional health care issue such as staffing, entry level of education, etc.

Define the problem as it is found in your practice environment (do NOT use textbooks)

Describe why this is a clinical problem in your environment

Explain why you chose this problem to investigate

Be very specific with examples.

Current Clinical Practice. Describe the current clinical practice relating to this problem.

Summarize the formal mechanisms for dealing with this problem or the formal mechanisms that create the problem [i.e., policy manual, standard of practice, clinical path, etc.]

Summarize the informal mechanisms for dealing with the problem or that create the problem [What the actual current practice is].

Analyze the rationale for any discrepancies between the formal and informal methods

Nursing Interventions. Identify three [3] nursing interventions from the literature, which address this clinical problem. The interventions should be based on current literature. At least two intervention must be based on research. These are therapeutic interventions, which means that they are focused on improving patient care.Textbooks may be used as a citation source, but are not the best sources.

At minimum 6 sources of current literature are needed to support the interventions- At least three [3] sources of literature must be primary research or evidenced based practice studies.

In your paper analyze the relationship between the research, other literature and the clinical problem.

Develop a hypothesis for a nursing intervention you would like to test to handle the problem you chose.

Summary. Should conclude your assignment with a summation of the problem and your interventions.

APA format. It is expected that the principles of good writing will be used. Including grammar, punctuation, spelling and sentence structure. This paper must follow the guidelines of APA format (6th edition).

scussion of the application of the borrowed theory to the identified problem. How would your practice change by incorporating this theory?

 

PURPOSE:

It is important to understand how borrowed theory can help you in your everyday environment as a nurse. In the previous assignment, you identified a practical problem that emerged from the evidence in the extant literature or professional practice, and you explored how middle-range theory could be applied to solve the problem. In this assignment, you will explore and apply borrowed theory to solve the specific problem that you identified previously, and you will synthesize the applications of the middle-range theory and the borrowed theory into the most appropriate solution to the problem.

DIRECTIONS:

Consider the problem that you described in the previous assignments and the instructor feedback about those assignments.

Write a paper (1,750 to 2,000 words) that describes how borrowed theory can be applied to the identified problem. The paper should include the following:

  1. A brief summary of the problem including the potential middle-range theory that could be applied.
  2. A description of a borrowed theory that could be applied to the problem. Is this borrowed theory appropriate to your identified problem?
  3. A brief history of the borrowed theory’s origins.
  4. A discussion of how the borrowed theory has been previously applied.
  5. A discussion of the application of the borrowed theory to the identified problem. How would your practice change by incorporating this theory?
  6. A discussion of how application of both the borrowed theory and the middle-range theory can be integrated to create the most appropriate solution to the identified problem.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.

nursing provision (Section 5204

 

Comment 1

The PPACA was aimed to improve the health care system, offering affordable health insurance to more Americans, expand the Medicaid program to cover all adults that live below the poverty level, and to support innovative medical care delivery methods designed to lower the costs of health care generally (Lampert, 2009). The PPACA mandates that everyone that is legal will have health coverage in the United States or a penalty will have to be paid at the end of the year. With the influx of people now receiving healthcare, they will be seeking medical attention where in the past they would not. The increase in people seeking medical attention will result in a needed increase in nurses to take care of these patients and more training to gain more expertise and skills to be able to manage the emerging needs and diseases.

A key nursing provision is the health care workforce loan repayment program (Section 5203). This section focuses more on children. It has a focus on pediatric medical or surgical and children mental and behavioral health care. The repayment program will offer psychiatric nurses, social workers, and professional/school counselors up $35,000 a year in loan repayments for their participation in an accredited pediatric specialty residency program.  A second key provision is public health workforce recruitment and retention programs (Section 5204).  This provision is aimed at eliminating the shortage of public health agencies. This provision has offered a one third repayment of loans for an exchange of a contract of employment acceptance with a public health agency for three years. This program is offered to eligible public health or health professions.

I know my nursing career will be affected by the provisions that were listed above along with all the other provisions listed in the PPACA. Offering loan repayments will give nurses the incentive to obtain higher degrees. Recruitment and retention would likely decrease the nurse shortage by new nurses coming in and showing loyalty to the season nurses.

Comment 2

The effect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) resonates profoundly in the U.S. healthcare environment and among the public. Two key provisions of the act include: 1) Guaranteed issue prohibits insurers from denying coverage to individuals due to pre-existing conditions; 2) Section 5204 Public health workforce recruitment and retention programs.

With the first requirement, health care setting experienced a rise in the number of new patients, as expected. Many of these patients were probably afraid or restricted from going to the hospital or seeking medical care due to the lack of healthcare coverage. The impact is that more people are seeking medical care. From my nursing practice, I observe some of these patients have chronic illnesses that have been neglected and thus require more care. Also, more patients come for medical services; emergency rooms fill with more patients. This increases patients’ population. In return, this affects nurse to patient ratios. Nurses have to care for more patients. They have to work extra time due to shortage of staff. The downsides is that nurse morale is low and the risks for medical errors are high.

The second nursing provision (Section 5204) retained refers to the established “Public Health Workforce Loan Repayment Program.” This provision gird to assure an adequate supply of public health professionals to eliminate workforce shortages in public health agencies. The positive impact of this provision is that government will repay up to “1/3 of loans incurred by a health professions student in exchange for an agreement to accept employment with a public health agency for at least three years” (CDC). Ultimately, this provision makes it easier to attract young people to the field of nursing. This will have a positive impact on the nursing shortage. It is an attract incentive for many current nurses to pursue their studies and opt for advanced degree in nursing. This is exactly what I am intended to do.

Discuss what you learned from your experience and how it is or will be enhancing your professional role as a therapist or counselor.

Your Personal Lifeline

Read the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide to learn how the instructor will evaluate your discussion participation throughout this course.

For your own reflection, prepare a personal lifeline that charts nodal events from your date of birth to the present. Notice both vertical and horizontal stressors (McGoldrick, Garcia Preto, & Carter, 2016, p. 38). The vertical stressors might include cultural and societal history, such as poverty and experiences of racism and classism; family myths; family secrets; and privilege or oppression as related to gender, race, sexual orientation, class, age, or religion. The horizontal stressors might include life-cycle transitions, death, traumatic experiences, natural disasters, physical and mental health, life skills (education, career), and family structure. This exploration is intended to give you an intergenerational perspective on the relationship of your individual development to your family’s development through time.

After reflecting on your personal lifeline, choose one vertical and one horizontal stressor from your past that intersect with each other. In your discussion, you do not need to indicate all events on the lifeline, only the two that meet the noted criteria. Write about how these stressors interacted and how they impacted you and your family. For example, one of you may notice that when you were preparing to leave home and go away to school, one of your parents became seriously ill and you stayed at home. Perhaps a critical family event stalled your transition to establishing your individuality.

Discuss what you learned from your experience and how it is or will be enhancing your professional role as a therapist or counselor.

Note: You need to share only information about yourself that you are comfortable sharing. You are also welcome to write in first person about your personal experiences, though reference concepts should be cited accordingly. Try to connect your personal experiences to concepts in the literature.
