Different Engagement Models that Promote Communication
Starting with effective engagement is key to any effective work with individuals and families. One way to join is to consider that we experience the world subjectively thus we create subjective representations of our experience. These subjective representations of experience are constituted in terms of five senses and language. That is to say our subjective conscious experience is in terms of the traditional senses of vision, audition, tactician, olfaction and gustation such that when we—for example—rehearse an activity “in our heads”, recall an event or anticipate the future we will “see” images, “hear” sounds, “taste” flavors, “feel” tactile sensations, “smell” odors and think in some (natural) language. Furthermore, it is claimed that these subjective representations of experience have a discernible structure, a pattern. Understanding which primary representational system your client uses will enhance your successful engagement.
Utilizing your skills of assessment and intervention will be essential to successful work with clients. Utilizing a full biopsychosocial spiritual assessment will be critical to understanding the individual or family. Evidenced-based practice theories will guide you in your practice but must be integrated with other interventions that can help an individual achieve their goals. Understanding the impact of diversity and culture will influence how your interventions will have to be adjusted to be culturally sensitive to the person or persons you are working with. Select a disorder or issue of interest to you in work with adults, elderly, or families. You may choose a selection based on what you chose in the previous course or any issue/population you are interested in exploring. Examples include depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, or family problems. Next, select a population that is disenfranchised or minority group. Examples include gay men, black women, or persons with a disability. You will now prepare a comprehensive research paper addressing the below criteria. This research paper should read like a journal article. It will be graded based on the thoroughness and analytic critique of the application of the theory to address the clinical issue and population you choose.
Briefly discuss the theories traditionally utilized to deal with the topic for the population you chose based on evidence-based practice. Discuss what engagement methods you would use to build trust and provide effective treatment to the clients you have chosen. Critically synthesize and analyze the primary theory utilized to treat the disorder you selected as applied to the population you selected.
Your analysis must include a review of at least three resources of the theory you selected and include a section on the satisfaction of the therapy from the perspective of clients if it is available. Offer at least two other possible alternative therapies to deal with this disorder rather than the therapy offered. Reference and cite support for alternative ways from the literature and how an individual’s social justice might be impacted.
Draw conclusions from your analysis and critiques that will be useful to other professionals. Compose this section in a way that can also be shared with clients who are experiencing the issue or topic you selected.
Support your assignment with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included
