Describe the counselor’s role in promoting optimal human development, wellness, and mental health through prevention and education activities
1. After completing your assigned readings on wellness and resilience, create a brief case scenario regrading the application of the wellness model to a targeted group of clients within a community. Once you have described your scenario and population, address the following:
A. Describe the counselor’s role in promoting optimal human development, wellness, and mental health through prevention and education activities
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
B. Discuss the importance of the counselor’s role in developing cultural self- awareness: promoting cultural social justice, advocacy, and conflict resolution; as well as other culturally supported behaviors, in order to promote optimal wellness and growth of the human spirit.
C. Incorporate theories and models of individual, cultural, couples, family, and community resilience as well as theories for facilitating optimal development and wellness over the life span.
