Help with the program.

Behavioral Health Prevention Program

Design a behavioral health prevention program that outlines the program and addresses the following:

2.Stakeholders involved in the program: patients; paraprofessionals; therapists; educational institutions; public health, government, and community agencies; the local community; etc.
3.Roles and responsibilities of stakeholders.
4.Behavioral and psychological barriers that impede behavior modification and disease prevention: role of behavior and prevention in maintaining health.
5.Recommendations for behavior modification and disease prevention: factors promoting healthy living and factors promoting disease prevention.

include a minimum of two outside references or other resources for evidentiary support.

*Behavioral Health Plan
Position Statement of the NASP
"The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) is committed to school-based behavioral and mental health prevention and early intervention services that promote psychological wellness for all children, improve positive child development, and maximize children's success in schools, families, and communities. Optimal preschool and school-based prevention services foster strong and effective in home, school and community environments".
School psychologists have knowledge of human development and psychopathology and of associated biological, cultural, and social influences on human behavior. Thus, they provide or contribute to prevention and intervention programs that promote the mental health and physical well- being of students (NASP, 2000). The following hypothetical plan could be initiated and carried out by the school psychologist.
*Hypothetical Behavioral Plan in a School Setting
The client can be assessed at baseline to observe and identify the target behavior focused on what it is that you want to change. The goal is to try and identify the problem, and find out what tis causing the target behavior (the behavior you are trying to change or modify). You will be interested in the duration, the intensity of the problem, which are all baseline measures. Baseline measures tell the therapist where to assess different factors before beginning an intervention. It is the standard by which the behavioral analyst will measure all subsequent changes in the intervention program to tell whether or not it is effective (etb.ju.edu).. The objective is to develop a program to maximize the client's assets, and reduce and eliminate the destructive behavior.

Example of target behavior: Child is misbehaving in the classroom, and/or bullies other students
Define bullying or misbehavior: Is he verbally or physically bullying. The student. Is he misbehaving in class or during recess?
Choose how you will assess the student.
The student could be assessed first by interviewing the student with parents to make an accurate observation and identification of the target behavior. Obtain data on other occurrences of the student's behavior (e.g., observation in a play setting and/or classroom setting or both. Next, a functional assessment could be employed to further pinpoint the problem behavior. According to Sattler, "A function behavioral assessment is designed to arrive at an understanding of the problem and design the behavioral intervention plan" (p.228).
Collect the data from the assessments: Several assessments are used to collect data on children's such as the Child's Behavior Checklist (CBCL, Achenbach, 1991) that measures internalizing and externalizing problems in children and adults)
