  • Empowering the Incarcerated Population Using Post-Modern Theories
    By Eman Tadros

    Incarcerated individuals are an exceptionally underserved population, specifically in the realm of mental health and family therapy. In solution focused therapy, the therapist and client collaboratively set realistic, achievable goals through a positive, strengths-based lens. This model focuses on what a client does presently and what they will do in the future rather than attempting to understand events of the past. The concept of just a “small change” needed to initiate larger change can be very effective if a client is feeling hopeless or that their problem is not solvable. Narrative Therapy focuses on the stories individuals tell about their past in which shape their current and future lives. The goal is to assist clients in altering the way they tell these stories through language. Altering their language aids in reevaluating values and views of themselves, thus constructing a more positive way of thinking about their story. Both therapies are based on treating each client as an individual with a problem rather than that the individual is a problem and being able to give power back to the client. The purpose of these ideologies is to open a client to alternative understandings. This presentation will teach clinicians to empower and identifying their clients’ positive strengths and resiliency factors. Narrative and Solution- Focused Techniques will be integrated to instill positivity and empowerment in clients. Techniques such as deconstruction, collaboration, complimenting, miracle/ exception/ scaling questioning will be analyzed and modeled. Furthermore, bridging Solution-Focused’s positive, goal-oriented philosophy and Narrative’s empowerment and resiliency orientation gives a voice to unheard client(s).

  • Relational Assessments in Couples Therapy 
    By Eman Tadros

    During an initial clinical interview, information is gathered about a client’s presenting problem, history of previous interventions, and each family member’s perception of a problem. Initial clinical interviews also focus on gathering information about previous diagnoses, assessing alcohol and/or substance use, suicidality, and family violence. Patterns of resiliency and other familial strengths, such as overcoming addictions, religious affiliations, spirituality, and education are important a family’s treatment process. Information is gathered about individuals within a family system and interactions with each other. Socio-demographic information, such as race, culture, gender, religion, and socioeconomic status, is obtained in order to gain more context about a family in order to inform treatment. Information about a client’s family of origin, early and other relevant experiences within their families, schools, and their community, are also noted.

  • The Pollution in our Great Lakes
    By Aitana Robinson

    The purpose of this research proposal is to investigate non-point source water pollution in the Great Lakes, specifically Lake Huron. Water pollution is a serious problem facing the Great Lakes. The largest cause of this pollution is non- point source pollution; meaning that it does not come from one specific source. The three big areas that the pollution comes from are: chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides, toxic contaminates such as road salts and heavy metal run off, and pathogens coming from fecal waste. Not only will I discuss these issues in more detail but I will also explain the effects and the solutions that can be done to try to minimize the contamination. This online PowerPoint should help others better understand the causes, effects and the possible solutions, to nonpoint source water pollution in Lake Huron.
