 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.

Person-Centered Counseling: last names beginning with A through C
Cognitive, Social Learning, or Cognitive Behavioral Counseling: last names beginning with D through G
Behavioral Counselor: last names beginning with H through J
Psychoanalytic or Psychodynamic Counseling: last names beginning with K through N
Feminist Counseling: last names beginning with O through R
Brief Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy: last names beginning with S through U
Multicultural Counseling: last names beginning with V through Z

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.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
