Burnout and Technical College Counselors Research Proposal

… Burnout and Technical College Counselors

This research proposal outlines the background, theoretical and research foundations, as well as the methodological framework, of a study that will investigate the prevalence of burnout in counselors within the sixteen (16) colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). The construct of burnout for the purposes of this study is defined as emotional exhaustion, depersonalization or cynicism and inefficacy of a counselor. While all professions have some level of stress involved, the research quickly emphasizes that school counselors in general and those at 2-year institutions tend to experience inordinately high levels of work-related stress that may contribute to a higher incidence of burnout. This research suggests that there is a distinct difference between counselor burnout as a function of…. [read more]

Substance Abuse Among Licensed Counselors and Client Contact Term Paper

… Substance Abuse Among Licensed Counselors and Client Contact

Today, there are numerous ethical and legal dilemmas inherent in the issue of licensed counselors and drug abuse. The ACA or the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics requires counselors to follow the guidelines under the ACA strictly, so that there would be an exercise of restraint against those counselors who are prone to using drugs, and are in no fit state of mind to offer advice to others. For example, the Standard of Practice Nineteen (SP-19): Impairment of Professionals states that "Counselors must refrain from offering professional services when their personal problems or conflicts may cause harm to a client or others." (ACA Code of Ethics and Standards of practice) In other words, the basic mission…. [read more]

Rapport and Professional Boundaries Term Paper

… Rapport and Professional Boundaries

The work of Overholser and Fine (1996) states that: "Professional competence plays a prominent role in the guidelines established by all disciplines involved in psychotherapy, whether psychology, psychiatry, counseling, or social work." Related as well is that: "The Ethical Principles of Psychologists state that psychologists must 'recognize the boundaries of their competence and the limitations of their techniques'." (Overholser and Fine, 1996) Competence is not able to be assessed by any one given method because competence: "is a multidimensional construct." (Overholser and Fine, 1996) Professional competence has been defined a: "the provision of quality services through the application of professional knowledge, skills, and abilities." (Overholser and Fine, 1996)

Stress Management in the Caregiver Research Paper

… A study published by the Nuffield Trust (Williams et al. 1998) highlighted what had long been a subject of interest in the caregiver media: the levels of stress, sickness, absenteeism and burnout among professional caregivers. This report, from an authoritative and reputable organisation, brought together much of the prevailing evidence about the alarming state of the government funded workforce, which, despite a growing independent sector, is still responsible for giving over 90% of health caregiver. The report states that 'for the sake of good management and from simple compassion, both we and the Government should view these findings with due alarm, and accept shared responsibility for working quickly together to develop a program for action.

Service Providers on Special Student Research Paper

… There is considerable evidence indicating that school characteristics such as inflexible scheduling, culturally insensitive environments, rigid instructional strategies, ineffective special student engagement, and poor curriculum design which fails to recognize cultural differences and values, inhibit academic achievement-especially among low-performing special students (Giroux, 1994; Hixson & Tinzmann, 1990; Klem & Connell, 2004; Richardson & Colfer, 1990). Unlike the environmental factors previously mentioned, educational service providers nonetheless have considerable influence over delivery of services with respect to curriculum, scheduling, text selection, and instructional strategies. Of particular interest to this researcher are instructional strategies-specifically, pedagogical practices that provide support for special students -- and how low-performing and high-performing special students might perceive them differently.

This chapter presents a synthesis of the literature as it relates to the role…. [read more]

Adolescent Substance Use Screening Instruments Term Paper

… " (Zoccolillo et al., 1999) Thus, the AAOD student is at a clear disadvantage in terms of successfully completing a high-school diploma and moving on to a career-oriented post-secondary education.

Additionally, high school is generally also a milieu in which the adolescent learns other non-academic life skills, including mature means of relating to peers and supervisors, responsible treatment of deadlines and priorities, and the perspective-broadening value of sports and other extracurricular interests.

Absenteeism limits the opportunities for acquiring such skills, and even while attending, the AAOD student in all likelihood will not maximize the chance to participate in meaningful relationships and activities. Playing sports while drunk or stoned, or both, obviously also risks serious injury for the student and his or her teammates.

Parenting Program for Women in Drug Treatment Thesis

… Parenting Program for Women and Children in Residential Treatment

Addiction is something that has been around for many years, and there have been increasingly new ways of treating it that have been created over the course of much research and study. There are many different forms that addiction takes, and there are many different drugs and substances that someone can become addicted to, even if they are not of the age that most people would think of when they picture people that would start down that particular road. Most individuals think of addicts as primarily young, minority men in their 20s and 30s that rob, steal, and cause other problems in order to get their drugs or alcohol. However, there are also….

Human Resources Management - Maintaining Term Paper

… For his efforts, sales increased by more than 9% and total shareholder return rose by 56%. To leverage this success, Martinez created a core group of senior executives known as the Phoenix team. The charter of this team was to duplicate the success by creating a plan to implement and sustain the changes across the entire organization. Using an employee questionnaire, the group determined that employee attitudes correspond to customer satisfaction. They perfected a model that indicates that a 5-point improvement in employee attitudes will drive a 1.3-point improvement in customer satisfaction. Moreover, the increase in customer satisfaction drives a 5% increase in revenue growth. The bottom line result was an additional $200 million in revenue resulting in an increase of nearly a quarter of…. [read more]

Soar With Strengths Book Review

… Soar With Strengths

Over the years, many books are written regarding how to succeed in life and, more specifically, in work. Although they all have a different approach and premise, it basically comes down to looking a one's strengths and weaknesses -- concentrating on the first and using it most effectively and building up the second. That is the underlying message of Soar with Your Strengths written by Donald O. Clifton, founder and chair of SRI Gallup consulting firm, and author and businesswoman Paula Nelson. The book was written almost 15 years ago, but still offers strong guidelines on "soaring with one's strengths" in the business world.

The book starts with a parable about a rabbit who went to animal school. Here, he was very…. [read more]

Technology in the Classroom Research Paper

… 19).

Another reason those opposed to technology in the classroom offer is the availability or lack of availability to each student in the classroom. For many classes that are integrating technology in the classrooms, budgets don't allow for each student to have access to his or her own computer. As such, students are being required to share, which prohibits each child from deriving everything intended through the online curriculum. Moreover, scheduling and rotating students to access available computers can be disruptive and an overall disturbance to the flow of the classroom day. More time is spent shuffling students around which could be better used in more productive ways (Tiene, 2001). If this is indeed the case, then the class is being divided and not integrated,….

Job Satisfaction in Nursing Levels Literature Review Chapter

… Roelen C.A., (2012). Low job satisfaction does not identify nurses at risk of future sickness absence: Results from a Norwegian cohort study. International Journal of Nursing Studies. Vol. 50 Pp 366-373.

The writers here look at the aspect of low job satisfaction and how this affects the individual nurse, not only by a possibility of leaving his job but also the possible future impacts that it may have. It also looks at the effects that such low levels of motivation among nurses may have on the clients or the patients who visit them.
