This assignment is a library research paper in which you will examine a particular mental health problem,
or vulnerable population with whom you work. Examine intervention strategies you have employed for the
mental health problem including referral issues, engagement, bio-psycho-social assessment (mind-brainbody
involvement) and diagnosis, contracting, core/middle phase (including the use of relationship and
expressions of resistance), termination, aftercare, and evaluation of practice, using one or two practice
theories which we cover in class. Discuss your role as a social work clinician and how this role may differ
from other service providers, including responsibility of leadership. Include issues of the working alliance,
transference and countertransference as they may apply to treatment. Be sure to include material
throughout the phases of treatment on diversity, ethics and values, and issues of social justice. Be sure to
use APA citation style including, the use of subheadings, introductions, conclusions, etc. (15-20 pages, 12
pt. Times Roman, APA style). Case material may be inserted for illustrative purposes.
Do not simply repeat a manualized treatment (e.g. CBT for veterans). If you choose CBT you MUST
include another treatment approach to pair with it. Do not choose a first year practice approach or one
that we have not covered in this class. Use an approach suitable for work with adult individuals and
their support systems, not families, or groups. Short use of case material is integrated throughout so
please pick a mental health problem which one of your clients as exhibited.. Use phases of treatment
as your subheadings. Proof read your paper. Do not over rely on one or two citations. Do not use first
year texts. Do not over rely on classroom texts. Do not use narrative from progress reporting e.g.
“Client states that…”This is an academic paper which should comply with the APA style manual. Use
current citations. [ ]
1. Select a disorder or special population. [ ] A mental disorder present in a case you are holding is
preferred so you can use examples of interventions throughout.
2. Select an intervention strategy covered in class. Taking the practice method selected discover how
that method is employed throughout all phases of intervention. If there is no literature on the phase of
treatment (such as referral), please use other sources of information. Cover all phases including:
Issues in referral for this particular type of population. How does the client come into the system? Is
there typically a history with other systems of care? In what segment (s) of the continuum of care are
you most likely to be working and why? What might influence client use of mental health care?[ ] obj.
Methods of engagement given the problem area. (e.g. What issues are involved in engaging a client
who has anorexia and what must you do to establish rapport and empathy? HOW will you engage
given these issues? Why are these practice aspects important given the case and problem area?
Discuss engaging diverse groups of clients-what must you do differently with those from different
cultural groups.) [ ]
Discuss what is included in the assessment framework using the practice model chosen? Issues
in culture and diversity must be a part of this section. Remember that your assessment should be
based on the practice intervention selected, not just DSM diagnosis. If you are using CBT, HOW
would CBT or IPT assess this case? Please use some analysis of case material rather than simply
reporting. Why might someone have certain dynamics going on, certain symptomatology, etc.
Include a short biopsychosocial assessment and analysis of what factors influenced symptoms
What neurobiological issues come out in the assessment and how do you know they are present?
Present DSM diagnosis(es) [ ]
What methods of assessment can be employed using a valid & reliable measure? (Consult material
in the DSM 5 on assessment instruments. [ ]
Integrate relevant cultural factors of the case and use citations to support your assessment. Note
that Caucasians are not one group, Latinos are not one group, etc. [ ]
What is the treatment plan and what are the treatment goals? Remember to consult information tied
to the intervention you are using [ ]
Discuss issues in the worker client relationship: your own feelings, transference &
countertransference, values & experiences that may affect motivation or resistance in you and the
client system in treatment. Why are these issues present? What will you do differently given these
issues? How will you do it?[ ] obj. 3
What contracting issues must be set up given this problem and in this practice model? Why is the
contract necessary? [ ]
Discuss methods of intervention in the middle phase of treatment. How is culturally competent
treatment used in this phase? Your intervention in the middle phase should derive from your
assessment issues. Tell me why you doing what you are doing. Go beyond telling what interventions
you will use. How will you institute these interventions? The middle phase should represent the bulk of
your paper and should be detailed, i.e. several kinds of interventions not just a couple. [ ]
How will you engage and attend to issues in body, mind, and brain? [ ]
How is termination performed with this model and how do you know it is time for termination? What
are the issues & plan? [ ]
Discuss evaluation strategies in the practice model. . Evaluation should follow the same practice
intervention as in the assessment. Remember to include a valid and reliable assessment measure
as a part of your evaluation. [ ]
Discuss methods of follow-up in the practice model. Why might follow-up be important? [ ].
You may use one or more than one practice models but you must tell me why you are doing so.
Please comment on social justice issues as they impact problem presentation and treatment [ ]. obj. 1
Discuss your role and identity as a clinical social worker; what makes your domain different from other
professionals? What leadership responsibilities do you have in team activities? [ ]. obj. 6
What ethical issues are involved in working with this group? What social work values intersect with
these ethical issues? [ ] obj. 7
Do not present case material with no explanation of your practice model assessment or
theoretically-based intervention strategies. This assignment is not simply a case study. You may
use a case or cases as illustrative material of how to apply the interventions.
Use APA style. APA style includes the use of headings and subheadings. Remember to start with
an introduction and end with a conclusion. Do not use lengthy citations; rather, paraphrase material
to make your point. When you quote directly, you must include pagination and attribution. Do not
simply link quotes together with some narrative.
