Rationale:

The program was created to manage the contagion of deviant behavior associated with young alcoholics and addicts who struggle with school and recovery; so that the recovery focus and culture of Hope Academy might remain strong and supportive. (This is an evidence-based approach; c.f., Dodge et al., 2005, Deviant Peer Behavior in Intervention and Public Policy for Youth)

Learning Environment:

Essential Frameworks:

Schedule:

  • Students will have a posted schedule of weekly/daily events and activities that will provide structure and consistency.
  • Staff will guide transitions from one event/activity to the next by giving clear instructions as to have minimal disruptions and “down” time.

Physical Environment:

  • Computer Area
  • Independent Learning Area
  • Collaborative Learning/Group Processing Area
  • Isolation Area
  • Independent and Collaborative Rhythms
  • Scaffolding
  • Visual Expectations Posted = Visual Authority

Emotional/Psychological Structure:

  • Stress student problem solving: give students sufficient time and space
  • Reduce personal battles: redirect to Expectations Poster as authority
  • Conduct Quadrant Behavior Audits (Staff and Students)
  • Explore student’s needs

Node-Link Mapping—Source of Process.

Node-link mapping is a simple technique for presenting verbal information in the form of a diagram. It has been shown to have positive benefits for counseling interactions with clients.

Using “unpackings” for Relapse and

Problematic Behavior

Using “unpackings” for Relapse and Behavior

  • Why Students Are Significantly Less Defensive About A Problem When Unpacking It Vs. Talking About It
  • Zielke & Pontius, 2006; 2008 Version
  • Some Hypothesis
  • Unpacking creates a safe joining spaceand neutralizes power in helping.
  • Unpacking distances self from the account which quiets defenses, as it objectifies behavior, thus freeing up the exploratory behavior system.
  • Unpacking creates a holding spacewhere material is held and factors connected.
  • Unpacking changes repair motivation as it focuses on the immediate issue/problem and not self-deficits. Thus, separating shame (with it defensive covering) from guilt (taking action to “mend” what is broken).
  • Behavior moves form the agnostic position of “I don’t know” to the existential position of having meaning as adecisive act of self.

Goal of Unpacking:

  • To facilitate a personal deconstruction (i.e., “to take apart or examine in order to reveal the basis or composition with the intention…of exposing biases, flaws, or inconsistencies”, Merriam-Webster, 2007) of a problematic event.
  • To re-engage a youth with his or her memories of the specified event;
  • To help the youth reconstruct the event as a flow of experiential units (“units of happenings”)— “What happened?” “And then what happened?” “And then what happened?” and so forth.
  • To have the youth relate from memory thinking and feelings associated with each of the experiential units.
  • To have the youth make “holistic” observations as to the direction, cohesiveness, and outcome of his or her behavior.
  • To have the youth evaluate his/her behavior in the event to personal beliefs, values, goals, dreams and aspirations? Clarify the discrepancies.
  • To clarify motivation for behavior change, points for possible change, and challenges to making changes.
