1. When we think of the global health crisis today, the first words people would say COVID-19. COVID -19 is a tremendous global health crisis that the world is battling, but there are also others like climate change.  According to (Mazur 2020), heatwaves, storms, wildfires, and flooding affect the health of individuals.  Dr. Cheryl Holder gives examples of a patient suffering from obstructive pulmonary disease. The patient was having difficulty breathing due to the heat waves that climate change is responsible for fo (Mazur, 2020) notes that most susceptible individuals are minorities and lower-income. (Mazur, 2020) states that  a report that was published in 2009  that was conducted by  Lancet and University College London Commission  notes that” climate change “potentially the biggest global health threat in the 21st century.”

When looking at how the global health crisis can affect minorities and lower-income individuals and the importance of global health. Global health can be explained by (Global Health 2020) which notes that international health importance of helping with security, help broaden the prevention of infectious diseases globally, and help safeguard the population health.

2. I chose to discuss the Ebola disease that took place from 2014 to 2016. According to Branswell (2019), “the World Health Organization declared the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo a global health emergency” (para 1). The initial outbreak occured in Central Africa, quickly spreading throughout different countries. Reid (2020) states that “most people affected by the outbreak were in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia,” but “there were also cases reported in Nigeria, Mali, Europe, and the U.S.” Also, 28,616 were confirmed infected and 11,310 died (Reid, 2020). Ebola virus disease is classified as a severe, sometimes fatal illness that affects humans. It is often transmitted to humans from wild animals such as fruit bats and non-human primates. Along with developing vaccines, the World Health Organization has also come up with prevention and control measures for this disease while awareness or risk factors among individuals. Risk reduction messaging should focus on: “reducing the risk of wildlife-to-human transmission, reducing the risk of human-to-human transmission, and outbreak containment measures, to name a few,” according to the World Health Organization (2020).

Global health is important to global security and U.S. security because of the extensive amount of international travel. Viewing diseases and viruses on a global scale, rather than by country, can be very beneficial to addressing larger scale issues. The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (2014), “the United States cooperates with other countries to address priority public health issues and prepare for and respond to emerging and pandemic diseases” (para 7). Cooperation between countries provides stronger support for health around the world.

3. Global Health is important, especially with everything going on in the world. Right now, we are dealing with Covid-19, and it is causing many health issues and deaths across the world. “Global health plays an increasingly crucial role in both global security and the security of the U.S. population. As the world and its economies become increasingly globalized, including extensive international travel and commerce, it is necessary to think about health in a global context” (Office of Disease Prevention an Health Promotion, Global Health, August 18, 2020). The Covid-19 crisis is ongoing, and has been for almost all of 2020. Unfortunately, we are not seeing an end anytime soon, or at least that is the way it is starting to look. We have to wear masks anywhere we go, and certain areas are cracking down on it and making certain precautions into new laws. This disease can be spread between people who are in close contact (they say within 6 feet of another person). This can be through respiratory droplets like sneezing or coughing or even just talking. It is said that “it can lead to hospitalization and even death for young and middle-aged adults, it has caused the most severe health issues for adults over the age of 60-with particularly fatal results for those 80 years and older” (National Women’s Health Network, How Does COVID-19 Affect Different Age Groups). The U.S. Government has their own way of trying to manage the cases from spreading, such as wearing masks, gloves and sometimes even eye protection. It is also highly recommended that you stay at home and avoid going out in public for an extended period of time or even at all unless you absolutely need to.

Child and Adolescent Group Therapy

The child and adolescent group I am currently counseling is a substance abuse therapy group. It consists of 8 adolescents dealing with different behavioral issues and substance abuse. It is an open group; thus, participants are at different stages of group development and progress. Their ages range from 13 to 17 years. Adolescents are referred to this group if they present substance abuse, which contributes to behavioral issues. The group’s primary goal is to ensure each group member attains and maintains abstinence from substance use by the end of the 12-week program. The sessions are conducted twice a week, and all participants are required to attend 24 sessions. Each session runs for 60 minutes.

Group therapy is an effective therapeutic approach for individuals experiencing different psychological symptoms, including substance use disorders. Since children and adolescents can easily express themselves while in groups, group psychotherapy can be an effective therapeutic intervention for this client population. Moreover, the grouping is an automatic occurrence for young people. Peer feedback in such settings often plays a critical role in the process of change for a group client (Arias-Pujol & Anguera, 2017). Therefore, it is expected that clients presenting for child and adolescent group therapy should progress adequately as the group progresses. However, there are cases where a client from the group may fail to progress according to expected clinical outcomes.

At the moment, all group participants, apart from MJ, are progressing as expected.  MJ is a 16-year-old African American female. She was referred to the group therapy by her social worker. She was supposed to attend all the 24 sessions as part of her probationary requirements. Before being initiated into the group, an evaluation was done due to continuous smoking of cannabis and recent experimentation with Percocet and heroin, running away from home, and always hanging out with peers who influence her negatively. She was diagnosed with F12.20 (ICD-10) (active) cannabis dependence, uncomplicated, and F91.2 (ICD-10) (active) conduct disorder, adolescent-onset type.

She has been smoking cannabis since she was 13 years old. Her mother had sent her to an adolescent program after she caught her smoking marijuana. However, she ran away with one of her friends after being in the program for two and a half months. They stole one of the worker’s car and drove off to another state. She reported that she was on the run for approximately one month.  She stated, “My mother posted a picture on FaceBook, and someone responded to her,” and she was picked up and taken to a detention center.  She was discharged one month before beginning the group therapy. She is on probation.

The client began group therapy on June 23, 2020. She has only attended four therapy sessions so far.  She always seems resistant, distracted and engaged on her phone. When asked to talk, one is bound to hear her say she doesn’t need to be in therapy. She was forced to come, and she feels like it is a waste of her time. During the first session, she stated that she is only there because her social worker required her to attend the session. She claimed that group therapy was a ‘stupid’ idea. She has barely contributed nor participated in any activity since she started group therapy.  Last week, her mom reported to the therapist that she had run away from home and had texted, claiming that she was safe and will come home when ready. This violated her probationary requirements.

She didn’t progress as it was expected.  The primary therapeutic technique used to manage substance abuse symptoms manifested by all the participants, including MJ, was cognitive-behavioral therapy.  CBT has been proven to treat substance use disorders among adolescents effectively (Belendiuk & Riggs, 2014; Wendt & Gone, 2017). Participants are taught how to contemplate the possibility of problems and the development of functional coping tactics. They are also given room to traverse the negative and positive outcomes of using drugs. They learn how to keep track of their feelings and thoughts and also identify distorted thinking patterns and pointers that set off their substance abuse, identify and be prepared for high-risk situations and apply a series of self-control skills.  By targeting participant’s learning process, it was expected that every individual within the group would actively participate in their recovery process from substance abuse and addiction, which, in turn, would boost their ability to resist substance use.
