 Counseling Interventions [CLOs: 2, 4]

Prior to completing this discussion, please read Chapter 6: A Brief Introduction to Intervention in Meier and Davis (2018), Dusseldorp, van Genugten, van Buuren, Verheijden, and van Empelen (2014) Combinations of Techniques that Effectively Change Health Behavior: Evidence from Meta-CART Analysis, and any relevant Instructor Guidance.

When working with clients with health risks and/or disease, it is important to consider the psychological impact of implementing behavioral change. Adapting life roles to accommodate these changes can generate fatigue, stress, anger, anxiety, and depression, which can influence the client’s ability to meet goals. To alleviate these concerns, health and wellness professionals use various counseling interventions.

For this discussion, you will assume the role of a health counselor at a local wellness center and educate a hypothetical client about your assigned counseling approach and the interventions that you utilize.

Begin by reviewing the case of Sammy listed below.

Sammy is a 33 years old, Hispanic female, who resides in southern California with her sister Glenda. Approximately six months ago, her doctor diagnosed her with Type 2 diabetes and hypertension. She was instructed to implement a new meal plan, exercise, and take prescribed medication two times a day. Unfortunately, Sammy had an adverse reaction to her medication and was not successful in implementing a consistent exercise regimen, due to her rigorous work schedule. Disappointed by this set-back, Sammy begins to isolate herself from loved ones and stays in bed all day for two weeks. Concerned for her physical health and emotional well-being, her sister called a local wellness center to set-up an appointment.  When Sammy arrives at the center, she notices a list of health counselors who use different counseling approaches. Sammie is interested in knowing more, and asks you to explain your counseling approach.        

Provide Sammy with a general overview of your assigned counseling approach, supporting your response with information from Meier and Davis (2018).  Next, explain how this approach could help Sammy meet her targeted behavioral goals. Evaluate the cultural issues within this case, and describe how your counseling approach takes into account cultural factors.  Post your response by Day 3 and respond to two of your classmates by Day 7. Include one of the course texts and one additional scholarly resource in your response. Use APA formant and organize your post using subheadings.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers who were assigned a different counseling approach than you, and evaluate the efficacy of the approach. Explain how a combination of techniques can effectively change the client’s health by referencing the  Dusseldorp, van Genugten, van Buuren, Verheijden, and van Empelen (2014) article.
