Reflection Of A Program Analysis

Improved Essays
When the program was implemented, I believe it went well. This is because the clients expressed that they enjoyed the program and when they were asked what they learned, they understood everything that was taught and explained to them. When I analysed the program at a later date however, I did notice that there were some aspects that could have been modified in all aspects of the program. This includes how the Engagement activity, skill building activity, cool down and action plan were implemented and how they can be modified. To begin with, I believe that the engagement activity was well thought out because they were very responsive and eventually seemed to enjoy it. However, I think that it could have been a lot better organized and it could …show more content…
During the explanation of the activity and goals, I sat with my three and asked them what they thought a good friend was. I asked them what they liked about a friend and told them to write or draw what they came up with on a piece of chart paper. The clients gave good explanations and with these answers, I was better able to help them grasp what characteristics a good friend possessed.

The box had various pieces of cardboard, smaller pieces of wooden beads and blocks, as well as other small items. After taking the items out of the box, I sat with them and helped them create a basis for their structure. Having decided on a camp ground, rather than a building, I gave the clients each an item that they were in charge of and because they were in charge of this item, I explained that they would have to share the objects between each other. While this portion of the program went smoothly and I could see the clients understanding the goals as time progressed, there would be a few things that I would change. I would find a way to create better transitions between the …show more content…
Firstly, as I sat with the clients, I saw that they understood that a friend is a person who shares. Secondly, I saw they understood what good characteristics of a good friend are. I also asked everyone what they shared and why this could be a part of being a good friend. The one thing that I noticed that could be changed, should this program be implemented again, I would share anything that I noticed that they did not share that could help them better define a good characteristic of a friend. In the last portion of this program, the action plan helped the clients to find a way to use all that was taught to be used when they left the

    The particular management skills and theories that I found the most valuable as a team leader was a motivating theory called Theory Y.

This would not only develop my team’s performance, but would enhance the behaviors of my team members as well.…

    Seeing the needs of this age group is very beneficial because it better prepares me for the difficulties my future patients might have.
