Week 3 Discussion 2

Please no plagiarism and make sure you are able to access all resource on your own before you bid. One of the references must come from Broderick and Blewitt (2015). I need this completed by 12/14/17 at 6pm. My assigned family is the  [Jeong Family].

 

I hope everyone is “settling in” to the course and finding the family assignments interesting.  This week, you are addressing issues in young childhood.  As you develop your response to the discussion prompt, please be sure to address all objectives, and to do so from a developmental perspective.  For example, the prompt for this discussion asks you to identify at least one significant development-related issue for your young client. In addition to identifying the behaviors or conditions that exist, you should also support the significance of this with citations to resource(s).  Also, you are asked to explain two interventions you might employ to enhance the young child’s development, and why these would be appropriate.  These interventions should be specific and developmentally-focused.  Answers such as “client(s) should attend counseling” or “CBT-focused counseling would help the parents better deal with (issue)” is not sufficient. Remember that these are already your counseling clients.  Think about what specific types of interventions might support healthy development and why – and remember to support your statements with resources!  🙂

Also, I strongly recommend that you consider using outlines to assist in your development of main discussion posts (and applications!).  Outlines help you ensure that you meet each objective thoroughly, as well as help you identify ways to improve coherence and support in your assignment before submitting.  There are some very good resources in the Walden writing center on this topic.  I also highly recommend these two websites:

You might also want to check out this site, which not only includes information on developing outlines, but also “prewriting” steps:

Discussion 2: Working with Young Children

I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer,
to treat everything as if it were a nail.
—Abraham Maslow, The Psychology of Science

One of the more important skills you will develop as a counselor is the ability to identify a client’s unique biological, cultural, and environmental influences and adapt your interventions appropriately. This is especially true when working with young children, as their identities and real-world understandings have yet to fully develop. If they do not yet know “who they are,” how can you, as a counselor, begin to tell them?

For this Discussion, review the media, “Young Childhood.” Focus on the child aged 4–10 for whom you will develop interventions. As you construct your interventions, consider the information you have previously collected about this family. Utilize the Learning Resources and the current literature to support your post.

Post by Day 4 a brief summary of your client (young child), including presenting issues, family dynamics, and the young child’s attachment to primary caregiver(s). Then, describe at least one significant development-related issue for the young child. Explain why this is an issue. Finally, explain two interventions you might employ to enhance the young child’s development, including why you think they are appropriate. Justify your response with references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature. Be specific.
