It is evident that school counselors should acquire various tools and methods to contribute to the students thriving in their education at the establishment and in their life eventually. As a school counselor myself, I believe that using the SCRD method (Single-Case Research Design and Analysis) might help me assure that my students are provided with the best possible care in terms of their education.
To begin with, by employing the mentioned education method, I might be able to analyze all the specific student groups according to their particular needs. In other words, this method helps identify the effect of school programs and strategies on undergraduates’ behaviors. Such detailed and thorough research can result in a more fruitful outcome than the overall analysis of all the students. To be particular, it allows providing each one of them with their necessities without managing undesired extra interventions as they might yield only disadvantages to the therapies on the whole.
In addition, the SCRD technique would help me adjust these tools for a more detailed understanding of the student’s body. Overall, it allows obtaining the lacking information for supporting effective therapies and various interventions (Minton & Lenz, 2019). Provided that a special case that I am not familiar with happens, this method might considerably assist me in advancing my research towards an individual’s needs that should be fulfilled for achieving success in education.
The SCRD research method is geared towards mental health professionals more than it is geared towards school counselors. However, I believe that the technique can serve as a helpful tool for my future work, even though it is more suitable for the mental health doctors actively involved in mental health care, such as LPC’s (Licensed Practical Counselors) (Minton & Lenz, 2019). For instance, implementing the techniques might contribute to recognizing the effect of school programs, strategies, and practices. The aim of such an investigation is significant for analyzing the success of the school. Therefore, I, as a counselor, always need to update the statistics of the educational establishment.
Additionally, by employing SCRD, I can supply my students with the necessary tools to succeed in this world. Furthermore, I will pinpoint the needs of every student whether I am familiar with similar cases or not. It seems less complicated to analyze the undergraduates necessities by investigating the effect of the school structures on their education. Consequently, this research design might provide me with the information regarding the establishment’s strategies I might need in my work.
Overall, I reckon that acquiring knowledge of SCRD tools might be considerably helpful for creating a comfortable environment for students at the educational establishment. For instance, it becomes less complicated to recognize the failures of school programs, strategies, and structures and determine the effect on undergraduates’ academic success. Consequently, I can provide my students with the necessary lessons to achieve a more fruitful outcome with this method. The SCRD process can also identify undergraduates’ needs that are to be fulfilled to achieve success in therapies or other interventions. Even though this tool is considered to be designed for Licensed practical clinicians, I believe that it can be successfully implemented in work by school counsels as well. Provided that it leads to more detailed research required for successful therapy options, it would be easier to obtain the data lacking for such interventions.
