· An explanation of potential challenges for intervention during your field education experience

1) Potential challenge I have had is getting clients to follow through with the recommendations even though we work on it together something’s I cannot do for them

2) Also if a client has not come to get help on their own meaning it is a court order it can be hard to connect with them.

3) Plus some of the client’s that suffer from mental illness it can be very hard to get in contact with them especially if they are alone. Sometimes I can get them to answer the phone or the door even if we had an appointment.
