Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using BrainMass. Since you did not leave a link or indicate the content/situation in the videos you have been using for this class, I am assuming that you need guidance on the concept of 'the scenarios' as it relates to the 'too warm, too cold and just right' counselor approach. Additionally, being familiar with this particular course of yours, I do believe I found the particular scenario video that you are being asked to review:


This media has been developed by Capella University and I am assuming that you are studying there. If this is not the case, much of what you need to understand can be viewed in this video just as well. I suggest using this outline to present your review -

1. Short intro into the goldilocks effect
2. Compare the too warm scenario to the just right scenario
3. Recommendations for the too right scenario

I hope ...
