Identification: ACA292

Credits: None available.

Description:
Providing intervention services to students with emotional-behavioral difficulties (EBD) in the educational setting can be challenging and typically requires collaboration among a number of individuals.

Findings indicated that both students benefited from the intervention.

Objectives:

  1. Explore the check-in/check-out (CICO) intervention with peer-monitoring.
  2. Review the effectiveness of the check-in/check-out (CICO) intervention with elementary students experiencing emotional-behavioral difficulties.

Jul 28, 2015 12:00am

Identification: ACA293

Credits: None available.

The results revealed an improvement in the children’s behavior during and after the intervention, suggesting that Adlerian play therapy is a promising intervention for children’s externalizing classroom behaviors.

Objectives:

  1. Explore the effectiveness of Adlerian play therapy on children’s classroom behaviors.
  2. Review the results of a single-case research design study which suggests Adlerian play therapy as promising intervention for children.

Meta-Analysis of Counseling Outcomes for Youth With Conduct Disorders

Dec 1, 2016 12:00pm

Identification: ACA320

Credits: None available.

Description:

Twenty-one clinical trials were synthesized using a random effects model substantiating that counseling generally produces a medium effect in treating conduct disorder in youth at termination (d+ = .30-.57; k = 28). However, the lasting effects at follow-up were unclear because few follow-up studies (k = 13) have been conducted (d+ = -.53 - .58), and only two randomized controlled follow-up studies were located. No effects of moderating variables were evident, and implications for counseling practice and outcome research were addressed.

Objectives:

  1. Examine the efficacy of counseling in reducing conduct disorder symptoms in school-age youth.
  2. Analyze the duration of symptom reduction in youth diagnosed with conduct disorder following treatment termination

Complicated Grief: An Evolving Theoretical Landscape

Feb 2, 2017 12:00am

Identification: ACA323

Credits: None available.

Description:

The bereavement literature has proliferated in recent decades, generating a shift from conceptualizing grief as a stepwise, uniform process to an idiosyncratic experience that varies between individuals. Among the most notable developments is the empirical exploration of complicated grief – a protracted, debilitating, sometimes life-threatening response to the death of a loved one – and the testing of novel interventions to treat it. This article provides counselors with recommendations for identifying and treating complicated grief.

Objectives:

  1. Understand how to differentiate common grief and complicated grief
  2. Examine recommendations for identifying and treating complicated grief
