A child’s or adolescent’s disruptive behaviors can be challenging for a clinician. Disruptive behaviors can interrupt the counseling process, and they often signify the existence of emotions a child or adolescent is unable to express verbally. Some prospective child and adolescent clinicians may be ill-equipped to manage disruptive behaviors or recognize that the behaviors are symptomatic of an issue or disorder. This lack of knowledge may elicit a nontherapeutic response from a clinician, which can damage the development of a therapeutic relationship. A therapeutic relationship is vital in order to counsel children and adolescents effectively.

To prepare for this Assignment, review the Disruptive Behaviors Part Two media and select a particular child or adolescent with a disruptive behavior. Consider one strength and one weakness of the therapeutic relationship with the child or adolescent during the counseling sessions.

The Assignment (3–5 pages) is in two parts:

Part One: Ineffective Interventions

  • Identify the less effective counseling session you selected, and explain why it was less effective.
  • Identify and explain the intent of the target goal in the counseling session.
  • Explain one ineffective aspect of the counseling approach and why.
  • Explain one misstep the counselor made that inhibited the development of a therapeutic relationship and why.

Part Two: Effective Interventions

  • Identify the more effective counseling session you selected, and explain why it was more effective.
  • Explain one intended goal the counselor was attempting to accomplish in the counseling approach and why.
  • Explain one ineffective aspect of the counseling approach and why.
  • Explain two critical skills the counselor demonstrated that promoted the development of a therapeutic relationship and how those critical skills were used.
