I‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ntake and Engagement 5800 Henderson and Thompson (2016) shared that “years of research support the correlation between counselor’s interpersonal skills and counseling effectiveness” (p. 67). There are multiple tools to engage children, including counseling skills, preparing for your first interview, and overcoming resistance. All these tools are essential in engaging children in a meaningful and effective manner. Children who come from abusive backgrounds have a difficult time feeling safe within the counseling setting; therefore, engaging them within the counseling relationship is vital. Using the film clip provided (transcript attached), “Children of Abusers” choose one of the children from those two films (Emily or Nathan from Children of Abusers”) for this essay. While considering the child and situation they are in, either at home or in a group home, consider how you could effectively engage the child. For this essay, conduct an intake for counseling for one of the children mentioned above. Using readings and research, identify how you would‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ effectively engage that child. In this essay, complete the following: 1. Identify which child you are conducting the intake on. 2. Discuss at least one issue to consider during your first interview. How would you prepare for the interview? 3. Identify at least one strategy on how you would overcome potential resistance during the intake. 4. Apply at least one universal counseling skill that you would apply and provide an example of what that would sound like. You can find universal counseling skills in the second attachment.
