Seminar Question: To prepare for seminar, please read the scenario below and think about the questions that follow.
Scenario: Community Needs
For the past few months, you have been working as substance abuse program aide in an outpatient program (clients return home after treatment each day). Lately, your town has had many budget cuts and you have noticed this in the number of clients who complain about not having enough food or clothes for themselves and their children. Other complaints relate to bus route cuts and the closing of two government- funded day care centers. Counselors in your program have noticed a significant drop in client daily attendance. One of your job tasks is to call clients who miss treatment each day and discuss the reason for the absence and help them to solve whatever obstacle is preventing their attendance. During a staff meeting, your program director asked you to make a list of the main obstacles reported by clients and to propose ways in which the agency can prevent or reduce those obstacles, or how many agencies together might be able to solve the problems.
List all of the obstacles that you found in the scenario above in order of what you think is the hardest to solve to the easiest to solve.
How might your agency solve the first two obstacles on your list?
