Assignment 1: Scholar Practitioner Project: Addiction Intervention

Assignment 1: Scholar Practitioner Project: Addiction Intervention

 

Most individuals do not decide to seek treatment on their own. Often, some form of leverage from outside influences is required to provide the necessary incentive to seek treatment. The broad term for this leverage is intervention. Interventions are not limited to the confrontational family scenarios currently popularized by reality television. Intervention can be any action taken by others to persuade the person with problems with addiction to seek help.

 

There are several models of family interventions, but the one used most often is the Johnson Model, developed several decades ago by Episcopal priest Vernon Johnson (Clark, 2012). In this model, an addiction professional guides family members and significant others in rehearsing and carrying out an unannounced confrontation with the person with problems with addiction. The end goal is to have this person agree to enter into a prearranged treatment setting.

 

In this assignment, you apply intervention strategies to address Marge’s addiction and you consider potential ethical dilemmas related to the intervention.

 

In a 2- to 3-page APA-formatted paper, address the following:

 

Using the Johnson Model, design an intervention as it might have occurred six weeks prior to Marge’s admission into treatment. Include the following:

 

o   Describe some of the people who might participate in the intervention. Provide a rationale for including these individuals.

 

o   Describe the qualified professional to guide the process. Explain why this person would be qualified.

 

o   Explain the preparation process prior to Marge’s intervention.

 

 

o   Provide three examples of strategies that participants might take in Marge’s intervention.

 

o   Describe three potential sanctions that participants might employ if Marge refuses treatment.

 

o   Explain any ethical dilemmas that might arise from Marge’s intervention.

Ethical Violations—When Things Go Wrong

Ethical Violations—When Things Go Wrong

Most complaints against clinical mental health counselors are in the areas of competence and conduct (e.g., client abandonment, sexual conduct, dishonesty); business practices (e.g., billing, reports, documentation); and professional practices (e.g., termination referrals, employment opportunities, nonprofessional relationships).

Specific information regarding ethical complaints to state licensure boards, despite its obvious importance, can be difficult to obtain. Complaints can be filed by clients, colleagues, attorneys, or some other interested party, such as an employer or parent of a client. The process of investigating these complaints is quite tedious and can lead to actions or sanctions against the counselor. This, in turn, can affect the counselor’s ability to practice. Clearly, no counselors are exempt from having complaints filed against them; therefore, the best protection is to maintain an ethical practice.

For this Discussion, use the Case Study Analysis Worksheet located in the Learning Resources for this week. Then select one case study from the ACA Ethical Standards Casebook and consider potential consequences of engaging in these violations and how you would safeguard against them in your own counseling practice.

Post by Day 3 a brief description of the case study you selected from the ACA Ethical Standards Casebook. Describe two ethical violations and two instances of professional misconduct presented in the case study. Explain one consequence that may result from each of these situations. Finally, explain what you would do to safeguard against each in your counseling practice.

Be sure to use the Learning Resources and the current literature to support your response.

Search the AUO library and include at least one peer-reviewed journal article on treatment for codependence to use for research.

Based on the character of the husband in the movie When a Man Loves a Woman,  your weekly readings and the research article you reviewed, write a 4-5 page paper that addresses the following for each of the three characteristics you picked:

Explain three codependent characteristics.  Explain why you have chosen each particular characteristic. Provide three  examples, one for each characteristic, of how those codependent characteristics  specifically apply to the husbands character in the film.

Evaluate how each codependent characteristic is  detrimental to this person’s ability to establish and maintain healthy  relationships.

Analyze how the codependent behavior has evolved  within the substance abuse environment.

Apply what you have learned from the assigned  readings and the peer-reviewed article to recommend at least two strategies for  breaking codependent behaviors within a substance abuse environment.
