Discussion 2 Week 9 Give a brief description of how you would want to be treated if you were a client seeking treatment with a therapist from a background different from your own. Then, explain what actions the therapist should take to ensure that you are understood. Finally, give a brief explanation of why acknowledging your own biases may be helpful when working with clients. As a future mental health professional being in the position of a client, that is seeing a therapist whose background is different from mine whether by ethnicity, linguistics or even sexuality I would crave for them to be understanding, non-judgmental and respectful of my beliefs and values. In reflecting an understanding attitude, it would be very important for me that the therapist displays keen listening skills; as these attitudes of listening can either assist in promoting a free flowing dialogue between myself and the therapist or build a wall which may prevent me from expressing my feelings on the challenges and issues I am currently facing. In the therapeutic relationship, it is important that the client feels that the therapist is not critical and judgmental towards them and displays a high level of "caring and compassion toward the client even if they have confessed their deepest secrets and hidden desires" (Brew and Kottler, 2008; p.115). Another aspect of being understanding on the part of the therapist is the therapist's body language. Especially with the therapist's cultural differences certain actions in relation to body language may have differing meaning and thus depending on the action may be construed as being offensive. With body language being so important Ivey, Ivey and Zalaquett (2010) noted that if the therapist faces the client squarely, leans forward slightly, has a positively expressive face and uses facilitative and encouraging gestures the therapist can…...

...My client is fairly familiar with using computers and can handle basic task. She also has some experience with using Access, but only for viewing data she receives from others. Microsoft Word is another program she is used to. She will need some basic lessons in how to use Access to add or edit data. One of her receptionists knows how to do this, so can teach her. I also recommend that she buys a manual or user guide for her and her staff to read to familiarise themselves with the software. She rated her ease at learning new skills as 7. My client can also save data as well as copy it (including to an external hard drive). The receptionists have a similar skill level to Mrs. Johnson, but rated their ease of learning as 8 and 9. They also said that they are able to handle common errors and problems. Two of the vets have some basic computer skills, but only one of them knows how to use Access. The other will need to learn from either my client or the receptionists. They both know how to use Word. The other two vets have nominal computer skills, so will need more extensive lessons on how to use the system. I would recommend that they go on a training course before the new system comes in place. My client is legitimately accustomed through by revenues of computers and can button basic task. He also partakes some experience with expending Excel, but only for broadcasting data she take delivery of from others. Microsoft Word is a not the same plug-in she is used to. She will......

...1) Client A: For Client A I would use the exploratory research as my research design. Exploratory Research entails a very informal research method, in order to gain more background information about the problem. In this case it is said “In these situations we know immediately the problem is that we don’t know what the problem is. There are many possible causes for this slippage.” After gaining their little knowledge of information they have on the cause of the market share to slip 15%, it is clear that this case would be an exploratory research. Also I would use a hypothesis in order to speculate the decline in market share in the past 12 months. Client B: For Client B I would use the Descriptive research design. Descriptive research mostly describes the answers to questions of who, what, where, when, and how. In this case Client B gives us enough information to work from. I would use the cross-sectional study. The cross-sectional study, measures in more of a large population and sample sizes. This study can be beneficial by narrowing down the time period associated with each campaign in each region, and the product category as well. Client C: For Client C I would use the Casual Research method. With Casual research, it mostly focuses on determining what will cause a change in consumer satisfaction, gain in market share, or increases in sales. In this case Client C is trying to determine what factors of their package design (size, shape, color, texture, etc.)to......

Client Concerns

...Client Concerns and Helping Skills Cruz Cardenas Jr. BSHS/305 May 5, 2014 Client Concerns and Helping Skills Everyday individuals come across issues in life that cannot be resolved on their own. These problems keep those people from becoming productive citizens due to the many barriers that they encounter. Some of the issues can be anywhere from people not being able to meet their own needs, unable to reach self-sufficiency or economic stability, and individuals unable to cope with new problems in the modern world. There are many needs or requirements for social care as well, stemming from those that are unable to take care of themselves, social control for those who display inappropriate behavior, and rehabilitative services to promote self-help in individuals lacking independence. More specifically, many clients and communities struggle with childcare issues, which can sometimes be a huge burden on families. There are also those with debilitating diseases such as AIDS/HIV, domestic violence, homelessness, lack of education and skills, physical disabilities, mental illness, substance abuse, sexual and verbal abuse as well as individuals recovering from natural disasters. For decades now, people have asked the human services professionals for assistance in learning how to cope and overcome obstacles while growing as a person by strengthening their own abilities and becoming more productive and resilient. As a helper, the human service professional is responsible for......

Psychosis is a term that is used to describe psychotic symptoms. Schizophrenia is a psychosis. There are many different brain disorders that can lead to psychotic symptoms, including tumors, use of illegal drugs, strokes, and infections.

Client Paper

...Shahira Turner BSHS /305 CLIENT PAPER 8-3-2014 Eric H. Erickson, a psychoanalyst and expert in adult development, designed the “eight stages of man” model. It is one of many perspectives that is used in human development (Erickson, 1963). (1) According to Erickson, during a person’s life span systemic changes will arise from the time of birth until death, and although we all go through the same developmental stages, individuals experience these stages in different ways. The development of man may be influenced by social context in our lives. Such as home, family and community or an individual may be influenced by personal characteristics of values, traits or childhood experiences. Traditional stages change as society changes and many problems that individuals experience are due to problems of living. But when it comes to individuals who have very serious problems that are not caused by problems of living, it is necessary to classify their problems into identification perspectives. The perspectives are situational, societal or environmental influences that require immediate action and may be long or short termed. Individuals can be subjected to a series of environmental difficulties of a natural disaster such as fire, flooding or earth quake, they may also be subjected to a societal influences such as being homeless due to loss of employment or they may suffer from situational influences of being a victim of a violent crime. Most individuals may have multiple problems......

Client-Based or Client/Serer

...Client-based or client/serer Mashelle Scott IT/240 December 20, 2013 Jennifer Gonzales Client-based or client/serer After reading the scenario I choose a client/server model. Client/server networks employ one or more centralized servers that house critical information that is shared by everyone. Meaning, that it is comprised of a single central computer acting as a server that directs multiple other computers,(clients). They also provide centralized backup, which can be determined by the business. Also as a business expands a client server enables them to reach a shared database program no matter the distance. If there were to be an issue the company could recover the data and resume operations. With client/server model the servers are sometimes clustered in order to provide failover capability in the event hardware failure which avoids downtime and saves the company money. In any situation the decision to employ a client-based or client-server network depends on the business in question. If the company is a small business it may do well without a costly server, as long as there is someone appointed to ensure the backups are performed. As with a bigger business it might be more important to utilize a client-server network for the reason stated above. With a larger company it will be more important in order to provide the security and stability that a client/server network gives. For example, through encryption data can be available only to qualified......

As a case manager you will have to give that little extra push or extra confident that they have lost in the past time. As a case worker you have to maintain that resiliently mood with the client and that is where the treatment plan comes in. In this dissertation will be discussing the treatment plan for the follow up client which is Belinda. Also what strategies can a case worker may use when it comes to keep the client motivated with the follow up of the treatment plan, and the implementation of strategy of the treatment plan. As you may remember Belinda is this Native American that is eighteen year old girl that has an infant and also has another baby on the way. She has no records what so ever and also has no income of her own. Her goals are to become a nurse. The truth behind the treatment plan is very important for both client and helper they are many reasons why that the client can stay motivated with what are her goals. For Belinda her goal is to become a nurse. But we have to dig a little more to see what her needs are so the agency could see what her needs are really. Another thing would be......

Dementia Treatment

...Running Head: Dementia in older adults The issue of dementia in older populations is a very prevalent and growing issue. Memory loss and dementia are increasingly prevalent issues that affect older adults and their spouses (McClive-Reed 2010). Due to the fear that surrounds dementia in older patients, a prognosis could lead to a diminished sense of self and reduction in the quality of life, not just for said patient but also for the families or caregivers. In order to better understand dementia and those who suffer from it, let’s look at potential strategies and challenges to engage dementia clients, how to conduct a biopsychosocial assessment of dementia clients, and take ethical consideration into account in respect to a single client that I have chosen, EP. EP is a sixty-nine year old African American female who was previously diagnosed with dementia as well as depression. I met EP after she was admitted to the short-term involuntary psych unit at the hospital to which I am employed as a mental health associate, making me one of her immediate caregivers. She was admitted after proving to be a danger to herself during screening, where it became known that the patient stopped taking appropriate dosages of her medication and became unable to appropriately care for herself as a result. When EP is doing well with her medications, she is able to live a very independent and healthy lifestyle, but this lasts only temporarily as this is not the first time that she has......

There also issues/problems in the human services world that effected clients because of culture stigma, homelessness, poverty and the fear of asking for help which effects thousands of immigrants in the United States today. One of main issues that cause issues/problems in the human services environment is individuals living in denial of needing help or not knowing how to find help or being concern about being judge by others. There are various individuals/people who are affected by the human services who are lost in a world of not understanding how to seek assistance or help. The elderly is a population of people who may have difficulties living alone, and mayn’t have financial resources to afford the cost for a nursing home or residential ca4e facilities.

...The first part of establishing a client-server network in the Home Hospice Care building would be establishing where the Access Points would be in the building for the WLAN, because the Windows 2008 server machine that is running Medical Manager is already set-up for the most part. Here is a diagram of the floor plan with the location of where the APs will be set-up. Each AP will be set-up with an omnidirectional antenna, with antenna gain features to ensure that signal is properly spread to all areas of the hospice through walls and other obstacles. I believe a wireless local area network is the best option. Next, the servers for the file managers and three-in-one printer, copier, and fax machine must be set-up. These servers will also be running on Windows 2008 standard. The file machine needs to be its own dedicated box, so that there is no extra delay for managers and employees when files need to be read, wrote, and managed. A print server set-up with one three-in-one machine would be the easiest to set-up and cost-effective as well. This would be beneficial to all employees and easy to set-up on each workstation. Windows 7 Professional edition would be the best idea for each workstation here at the company. Each workstation needs to have its own license purchased, but the benefits of having extended RAM capabilities is critical to the doctors/nurses here. Also, I think 6 notebook workstations would be a good standard for the doctors/nurses. They......

Social workers and Human Resource workers should keep in mind of their skills and training they were educated on so they are able to be implemented to help service in the client’s needs.

Treatment Plan

...that a treatment plan may be formal or it may consist of informal handwritten notes. This is largely dependent on the documentation required by the agency or facility and all the other parties involved. However, regardless of its format, Fritscher (2011) states that the treatment plan should always be subject to change as the case progresses. According to Vrouvas (2013), a treatment plans can work as a mean of providing clients with guidelines that may foster moral support, provide incentive and offer practical solutions for dealing with adversity. This paper will describe a treatment plan and how it will be presented to the client. The paper will also make specific reference to Brittany.

Human service professionals negotiate with clients the purpose, goals, and nature of the helping relationship (KBL781, 2011). Before Human services were provided in the twentieth century, life expectancy was much shorter than today. Over the years health services have doubled the life expectancy of many citizens.

Treatment Methods

...Treatment Methods Assignment According to Morris and Maisto (2002), the goal of insight therapy is “…to give people a better awareness and understanding of their feelings, motivations, and actions, in the hope that this will lead to better adjustment (p.527). The three major insight therapies are psychoanalysis, client-centered therapy, and Gestalt therapy. Psychoanalysis allows a person to express his or her thoughts using free association. During this process, the analyst remains quiet and out of sight. The advantage of this form of therapy allows people to recall past events and give them the opportunity to work through the feelings and beliefs that underlie their problems. However, this form of therapy may take five years or longer and many people cannot afford that length of treatment. Another disadvantage is that this form of therapy does not work immediately and is not effective with severely disturbed people. Client-centered therapy, according to Carl Rogers, “…is to help people become fully functioning, to open them up to all of their experiences and to all of themselves” (Morris & Maisto, 2002, p.529). In other words, Rogers believed that it is important to always follow the client’s lead in therapy and that the client is responsible for change. Gestalt therapy differs from psychoanalysis and client-centered therapy. “Gestalt therapy emphasizes the here-and-now and encourages face-to-face confrontations” (Morris & Maisto, 2002, p.530). In this form of therapy, the......
