In addition to biases, counselors often fail to notify their client when he or she will breach confidentiality thus leading to clients suing their counselors. The counselors have ethical obligations to uphold not only for their clients but for themselves. Counselors working with court-ordered clients can illicit autonomy in their clients through informed consent. Informed consent when properly indicating the limitations of confidentiality can allow the client to choose what he or she shares. However, informed consent can become a complex process if an individual is incapable of giving consent (Lambert, 2011). A court-ordered client may not have the capabilities to give consent.The demands of court-ordered clients to give consent falls on
Working with minor clients can be extremely challenging because of the grey areas surrounding ethical and legal issues. Two major challenges when working with minor clients are confidentiality and reporting suspected child abuse or neglect. There are actions taken by counselors to provide the best possible care for the minor client, while maintaining a therapeutic relationship. As a future counselor, I am aware I will encounter challenges pertaining to confidentiality and abuse/ neglect, however I understand the need to make an ethical decision and use the ACA Code Of Ethics to guide me through the journey.

Client charts are created for each client that CUCE services for Intervention Services as well as other services we provide. As I am in preparation to begin to see clients, I have been viewing client’s charts to familiarize myself with the order of documents and how to properly complete the forms. A part of being a Navigation Linkage and Retention Specialist is to complete intake on clients that are seen. All charts have an intake and personal information form inside. This is the first form that is completed on each client. This form is completed to give CUCE basic demographical information on the client such as their name, address, age etc. This form is also used to identify the clients HIV status last time tested, as well as their drug and
Liz is an African American single mother who battled with thoughts about marijuana and its effects. She stayed with her mother in the countryside and was a mother of two loving kids. She was troubled by what she perceived as the contrast between her motherly life and her personal life. She alleged that the smoking pot always helped her relax her mind and that she had learned smoking marijuana from one of her high school boyfriends. No one in her family ever realized that she was smoking marijuana until in her later years when it came to the knowledge of her mother. The habit of smoking marijuana seemed to be a hindrance to her career dream of becoming an elementary school teacher because the profession called
As mentioned above client is a 35-year-old Black male currently residing with his mother in Northwest, DC. Although, the initial assessment took place due to a frantic phone call placed by mom; when the team arrived client was calm, listening to his music, and cleaning his space. During the initial assessment client was well groomed and appropriately dressed. Client was at times fidgety and became disoriented. Client would go off on tangents and discuss topics that were irrelevant to the questions he was answering. In addition, Stan displayed homophobic ideation as he would mention often his dislike for that culture.
Overall, I thought the website gave some great and helpful information regarding interventions that can be addressed for cancer. Although, there are certainly some areas I believe that could be addressed better or explored in greater depth. In all three cancers small media, client reminders, and one-on-one education seemed to be the best intervention approach. Brochures, calls, and assistance scheduling are all specific small media that are being utilized to better help and remind people for cancer screening such as mammograms, pap tests, and fecal occult blood tests. I liked the way the website described using supporting materials such as the small media and reminders to help advocate for one-on-one educational appointments. These are very useful and I certainly understand why through a number of settings these messages can be used to overcome barriers and motivated the population to be screened for cancer. Reducing client costs and client incentives are two areas that definitely need to be studied closer. These areas are vital to help increase the participant screening. The studies from breast cancer show that client vouchers and state benefits deemed helpful, therefore; further studies need to use this information as a guide to help with cervical and colorectal cancer incentives. As a unit manager in a hospital setting, I think that incorporating media, incentives, and education are vital. These interventions can be used with patients and their families in order to
The client’s mother brought her in for services because of her “rough” behaviors and aggression. With CBT, the therapist will focus on the thoughts that are causing the feelings, which are then causing the behaviors. When others tell the client something that she does not agree with or like, the client has an anger outburst and sometimes uses physical harm on the other person. The aggressive behavior could be triggered by the thought that no one else cares about what she thinks. With the CBT model, we can help the client take responsibility for her own actions. When the client plays rough with her brother, she gets angry and hits him. That behavior is triggered by the thought that client’s brother is playing too rough with her and trying to hurt her. Through redirection, the therapist can work with the client to understand how positive and negative thoughts lead to a specific thought, which then lead to a

As I read this article there were several things that I appreciated. One of the things that I appreciated was that they gave their definition of clients who fit this category. I have read other articles where I just felt like I did not fully understood where they were viewing the clients from. Or if they did have a definition, it was one that I felt was lacking something whether it was depth or knowledge of the population.
Dwight is twenty years old and diagnosed with trisomy twenty-one Down syndrome. Dwight has challenges interacting with peers, working with other students in a group setting, and completing his work independently, but excels in daily living skills and working one-on-one with a teacher.
