If I’m working with a client who is using drugs and knows he must stay clean or will be sent off to a group home if his drug test does not return clean, although he keeps telling me he wants to change and do better, but doesn’t show it with his actions. I will continue to work with and encourage this client and not terminate services.
I do not think I will be involved in any decision making, but if I was, first I would examine the facts, look at the population affected by the issues, and look at the possible outcomes of my decision.
When speaking with clients I speak more slowly and clearly as a way to ensure that they are hearing me and understanding me. I noticed some of the intervention counselors ask if they understand them. Also sometimes when we are completing assessments they read them to the client before they sign as a way to ensure that they understand what was written.
I will recognize and understand that when working with clients of various populations, they may have different cultural beliefs and values. I will take the initiative to educate myself and become culturally competent.
Research the latest practices and studies done for children and apply them with my client population. Specifically for the clients I work with, I could research studies about ADHD, bi polar, and anger management.
Attend Family-Team meetings and ISP meeting with Clients, family, Court Counselors, and etc. to ensure that the client is receiving the proper services and the most effective policies for their particular case.
