Write a paper detailing an intervention for the population that your specialty serves (e.g., school counseling—kindergarten-aged children; vocational rehabilitation—adult MR clients in a sheltered workshop; student affairs—freshmen living in residence halls; community counseling—adults in a group home for the chronically mentally ill).
You will also include theory, lifespan issues, developmental issues, crisis, trauma, pathology environmental situations, and other issues related to the population described in the paper In this paper:
1. Identify the “normal” developmental issues faced by this population including a summary of the physical, cognitive, and socioemotional behaviors. CACREP Section.II.G.3.a.b.h.; Alabama State Department of EducationSchool Psychometry 290-3-3-.51 (2) (a) 1
2. Identify and describe in detail a particular intervention based on developmental and specialty literature (e.g., a workshop for parents of kindergarten-aged children, behavioral contracts for adult rehabilitation clients in a sheltered workshop; structured group for freshmen living in residence halls; daily living skills workshop for adults in a group home for chronically mentally ill). Be sure to identify whether the intervention targets groups such as a seminar, workshop, or targets individuals such as individual behavior contracts.
