NRNP 6640-14 Discussion Counseling Adolescents

The adolescent population is often referred to as “young adults,” but in some ways, this is a
misrepresentation. Adolescents are not children, but they are not yet adults either. This
transition from childhood to adulthood often poses many unique challenges to working
with adolescent clients, particularly in terms of disruptive behavior. In your role, you must
overcome these behaviors to effectively counsel clients. For this Discussion, as you examine
the Disruptive Behaviors media in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might
assess and treat adolescent clients presenting with disruptive behavior.
Learning Objectives
Students will:
 Assess clients presenting with disruptive behavior
 Analyze therapeutic approaches for treating clients presenting with disruptive
behavior
 Evaluate outcomes for clients presenting with disruptive behavior
To prepare:
 Review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide.
 View the media, Disruptive Behaviors. Select one of the four case studies and assess
the client.
 For guidance on assessing the client, refer to pages 137-142 of the Wheeler text in
this week’s Learning Resources.
Note: To complete this Discussion, you must assess the client, but you are not required to
submit a formal Comprehensive Client Assessment.
