Discussion 1
Please follow directions and answer all questions!!
Consider the following scenario:
Mr. Dunn, the director of a local mental health center has recently completed certification in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) a model used to treat trauma victims. The treatment theory is based on simulating REM sleep while the client is awake, by having the client think about the traumatic while following counselors hand motions. After several treatments, the client becomes desensitized to the traumatic event. This approach was developed in the 1990s and is still in use today. Contemporary studies show that the approach does seem to help victims process trauma.

Mr. Dunn is so excited about EMDR that he has decided to use this treatment method in clients who struggle with anger management
Address the following in your discussion:
Is Mr. Dunns decision to adapt EMDR to anger management treatment a good idea? Why or why not?
From a research perspective what factors should Mr. Dunn consider before employing a new treatment model?
Be specific. Give examples.
Discussion 2
Consider the following scenario:
You work for a local human service agency that monitors parolees on house confinement and other individuals who are court ordered to wear ankle-monitors. More recently you read an article in the local paper that cites data indicating that violent crimes have increased 5
% in the last 6 months. Anticipating more clients enrolled in your program, you put in a request to fund two full-time case manager positions at your agency.
Address the following in your discussion post:
Based on the data provided in the local newspaper article, are the two additional full-time positions warranted? Using research critical thinking skills discuss what information you have versus what information is needed to determine whether the hiring of two full-time case managers is justified. Be specific. Give examples.
