Discuss the principles for effectively implementing an action plan.
Describe at least five barriers that might interfere with client implementation of the action plans that are created. Include a case example of each barrier.
Outline a counselor intervention that would help to overcome each barrier.
Outline an aftercare plan that utilized local community resources.
Include at least three scholarly references in your paper, including
