4 stages of the counseling process: Each youth manager should know

It is natural progress that takes place within the context of the Union's help. This process enables you and the person you are working to build relationships, assess the situation, set goals and plan to achieve your desired results. These advancements are known as the advisory process. There are four stages of the advisory process. They are: developing communication, making informed assessments, establishing jointly agreed goals and goals, and developing an action plan.

Level 1. Development of Communication

In order to be able to have a positive relationship with young people, you need to be able to connect with them. This can only happen when youngsters are made to feel like they care about their well-being and that you understand where they come from. It is about behaving in a way that shows the essence of reality, respect and compassion.
To develop solid communication with adolescents, you need to create a safe environment where young people will feel good enough to open you and talk to you about everything in their minds. You also need to help young people see that, despite their circumstances, they have the strength. In short, you should start things away from the point of view of strength.

Questions to Keep in Mind When
Develop Relationship

· In what ways can you build a better relationship with the youth in your program?

· What are young people who are not active participants? What can you do differently to join them?

· If youth is immune, what steps can you take to reduce resistance?

· What has previously been done to a youthful youth?

· How do you know when you have established a solid relationship with youth? Could you use these clues to strengthen your relationships with another childhood?

2. Stage Type of Informed Assessment

Informed assessment must be done when both you and your youth collect information to find out what's really going on so that you can assess what's next to change the situation for the better or build up the talent of teens to cope with a better situation. The first step in the assessment is to find out if a change is necessary, and if that is what needs to happen in order for a change to take place. If you have decided that a change is necessary, the next step is to figure out what needs to be changed. Is it a behavior? Attitude? A condition?

Good food can provide opportunities for young people to see how their behavior or attitude could contribute to unwanted or unhealthy situations. Assessment is an ongoing process. You need to regularly check your childhood to see how things are going. Reassessment allows you to ensure that you and young people are on the right track.

How do you collect information for informed food? You can gather information in a variety of ways: Talking with young people, monitoring youth behavior and communication, discussion with other young people involved, and reading all documented information about a young person. Keep in mind that when you enjoy someone else's verbal or written report as the source of background information, you are in danger of losing lectures and assumptions.

points out to be considered when making a rating

· Be aware of your bias and how they affect the assessment you make.

· Participate in youth in the assessment process.

· Do not count on one source to make food, collect as much information as you can from various sources.

· Do not automatically mark behavior as a distraction because you do not understand, or it is not sexual with your culture.

· Be sure to point to the strength of young people, even when you are dealing with problematic behavior.

3. phase. Establishing Mutual Agreements with Purpose and Purpose

Why is it important to reach an "agreement" about goals and goals? Because if a young person is in line with the goals, he is more likely to monitor them. When a teenager is an active participant in the adaptation process and complies with the goals, he is more likely to achieve the goals. What are the goals? The goals are comprehensive statements that define what you want to accomplish. Think of goals as the outcome you are trying to achieve. While goals are comprehensive statements that define what you want to achieve as a whole, the goals are measurable steps that you take to accomplish your goals. For example, if you have a goal that says: "Your youngster will be better able to control his anger." One of your goals might be, "the young person will recognize emotional calls that lead to angry eruption and use positive suicide to calm down." Your goal should always be focused and measurable. They should also be derived from the overall goal.

Questions to Keep in Mind When Developed

Objectives and Objectives

· What do you want the young to achieve?

· How are you going to get it?

· When do you want to achieve your goal?

· What barriers do you expect?

· How do you deal with these obstacles?

· How will you use to measure and track progress?

· Is your goal realistic?

4. Schedule of Implementation Plan

The implementation plan is a plan that you and young people work together. It is designed to prevent, intervene or deal with unhealthy behaviors and practices. The implementation plan identifies who will carry out tasks, activities, how often they will be, how they will be exported and when they will be implemented. Implementation is designed to help individuals reconsider risky behaviors, deal with problems, deal with unhealthy living, learn new skills and build strengths. Executive activities may include: counseling, crisis interventions, training and education, support services, concrete services and the constructive use of free time.

As you can see, each level of the advisory cycle is based on the previous one. As you go through each level, you must realize that it takes patience and practice to advise youth effectively, but if you are committed to the goal you will do well. You can not assure yourself of your talent as a consultant, but by increasing your knowledge base, gaining more experience and strengthening your helping skills, you will be a more effective consultant.
