To be able to work on understanding his sexual inappropriateness, Bradley will first need to recognize how it affects others and be able to view his behaviors from the victim’s point of view.

It is imperative for case managers to use intervention practices that will prevent risks, reduce the negative behavior, and promote productivity and success. Intervention practices are included in case management plans because they serve as actions to improve life situations. The concept with helping clients in the criminal justice is complex because each person is different and unique, so therefore, the treatment and services have to be different to promote success. In order for clients to change their behavior, they must change their way of thinking. References Freeman, D. W. 2001.
When looking at coping with change it is not possible to ignore some of the events which change our development, life events which cause significant change are called transitions (Jeffery, J in Aldridge, S & Rigby, S 2004). If these transitions are not prepared for, they can cause emotional difficulties or even physical illness. Counselling skills can be very effective at this stage as the helper needs to work out how to make the adjustment to these changes more satisfactory for the client, to lower the emotional distress. The counsellor has to first establish what kind of transition the client may be going through; Scholssberg (1989) in Aldridge, S & Rigby, S (2004) identified 4 different kinds of transitions: Anticipated, Unanticipated, Non-event transitions and chronic hassle transitions. Unanticipated transitions are unplanned and can be projected as a crisis; this was personally experienced when my parents got divorced.
Self-harm, suicide and intimate partner violence are examples in which a counselor should be actively assessing levels of safety and risk of a client. When it comes to members of one’s community’s safety being at risk, the community mental health workers and law officials approaches to mentally disabled members should be evaluated. Counselor Safety In the article, A Survey of Safety Training in Rehabilitation Counselor Education Programs by Davis, Schultz, Anderson, and Bartley (2009), the article discusses the importance of safety training including counselor competence in identifying and responding to threatening incidents, communication, critical incident debriefing, and prevention, as well as conflict and lifestyle management. The authors express the importance of infusing safety topics into counselor education programs. An important concern in the counseling and social work field is the counselor or social worker being a target of violence.
Hobson believes that because problems in our life are usually through interpersonal relationships, we should resolve these problems through a therapeutic relationship. The quality of the relationship is crucial for the effectiveness of the therapy. PIT consists of several interlinking components, of which include ‘explanatory rationale’ and ‘staying with feelings’. A potential strength of PIT is that it is just as effective if not more so than current treatments at improving depressive symptoms. Research support comes from Elkin, who found that when compared to CBT, PIT is just as effective at treating depression.
According to Freud, mixture of feelings of love and hate that Diane presumably felt for her mother were the results of her obsessional thoughts and fear of losing the mother, and could actually mean an unconscious wish of Diane to kill her mother. In order to remove the feelings of guilt resulting from those thoughts, Diane engaged in ritualistic praying that have given her a relief. In terms of treatment, Freud believed that people could be cured by making conscious their unconscious thoughts and motivations, thus gaining “insight” (McLeod, 2007). The therapies such as psychoanalysis, free association and dream analysis are used to deal with unconscious mental processes. It is assumed that some anxiety disorders such as phobias, OCD,

In this phase the victim struggles with the realization of what has happened, that they have been raped, and they slowly begin to accept it. However this makes their feelings turn into revenge and anger toward the rapist, or sometimes they may become angry with themselves. They often may begin to question how they could have let it happen and most often place the blame on themselves. These feelings tend to die down however most seem to hold them all on the inside afterwards causing a lot of psychological pain. Generally, rape survivors report feeling powerless, shock, guilt, depression, anxiety, shame, embarrassment, and disbelief during this phase.
Some of the most important components a victim needs and desires are to feel safe, to have support and most importantly to have a voice. Through Restorative justice victims’ are empowered to participate effectively in conversation or some sort of meditation with offenders. With this in place, it allows the victims to take hands on role in directing the type of meeting that takes place, as well as defining the responsibilities and obligations of offenders. “Offenders are likewise encouraged to participate in this exchange, to understand the harm they have caused to victims, and to take active responsibility for it. This means making efforts on their parts to set things right, to make amends for their violations, by committing to certain obligations, that
The Authors Kress & Hoffman offers an extensive approach for the treatment goals of the sexual abuse survivors thought a theoretical perspective to help the victims of the abuse to integrate their abuse experience while keeping in their self-esteem as well as how we as therapists can help the survivors to connect with their personal strengths which can facilitate in their growth and development. I have observed through this journal about a treatment goal which integrates the survivors experience & preserving their self-esteem, which will be a most effective way in boosting up their confidence and change of their self-image. The reason I feel the authors have pin-pointed and wanted to work on the self-image of the survivors was because of the wrong perspectives which they develop about themselves after being victimized. For example: They start to believe that they are defective, damaged or flawed and blame themselves for the abuse. The author’s approach to the survivors of abuse by administering Solution-Focused Erickson as a group therapy was a very clever move.
