Do you think that socials networking websites are a good way to implement and/or recruit members for health promotion programs? Why or why not?

I discuss the different kinds of healthcare agencies, and how they appear and are used by members of popular networking sites.

Not only are there sites for the healthcare organizations themselves, but also the patient support sites. Many pages exist on Facebook for Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism, Cancer, just to name a few. On these pages, people with the illness exchange ideas and information, and this will often lead to discussions of which insurances work best, what hospitals provide the best care.

Solution Preview

Social networking sites can be a good way for public and governmental programs to find people to add to their forums.

An individual with a certain disease: MS, Cancer, Diabetes, and scores of others, can find personal experience information, but it should be clear that if the people sharing are not doctors that they cannot really prescribe anything, but suggest treatment options the others may not have considered. I have found a great deal of comfort, and not any invasion of privacy to choose to join one of these groups. ...

Solution Summary

This solution addressed the way social network sites might be good for dissemination information on healthcare programs and providers.

Diagnosis case study of Teen

Consider a child who was mentioned and described as an example in one of the videos you watched on child or adolescent mental health problems. Imagine that child or teen has been referred to you for counseling. Devise a diagnosis and treatment plan for this child or adolescent, using Chapter 19 in your Henderson & Thompson textbook, the First textbook, and the additional article you selected. Use the following format for your treatment plan (see the Treatment Planner books in your Optional Materials, for examples).

Problem: There may be many problems evident, but choose one for the initial focus of treatment.
Problem Definition: Describe how the problem is specifically evidenced by the client, using terms from the Diagnostic criteria in the DSM.
Goals: Set broad goals, based on your preferred theoretical orientation, that will result in the resolution of the target problem. Provide a brief rationale for these goals, with references.
Objectives: State objectives in specific language that can be measured (and meet demands for accountability).
Interventions: Design actions that the counselor will take to help the client complete the objectives, based on the clients' needs and strengths and your own skills and knowledge.
Diagnosis: This may be preliminary. Compare the behavioral, cognitive, emotional and interpersonal symptoms of the client to those in the DSM and the Handbook of Differential Diagnosis, to decide on the most appropriate diagnosis.
