Assignment: Mental health caseload
You are a counselor in a new youth facility at a local prison. All of the youths are on the mental health caseload. You are in charge of running at least one group therapy and are also in charge of your own caseload in which you engage them in individual counseling. The youths on your caseload need to successfully complete 1 group and at least 8 weeks of individual counseling to gain good days and be able to go home sooner. You need to utilize evidenced-based therapy to illustrate progress not only to your assigned caseload but also to retain your job.
Your boss asks you to see an adolescent client who is considered to be a high risk. This client is a regular at the local mental health crisis unit. He threatens suicide, but his cuts are superficial and not life threatening.
Address the following:
Give 2 types of evidenced-based therapeutic interventions open to this client, and explain how you would utilize them. What type of therapy do you suggest as the best recommendation for this client to attend?
Provide a description of 2 benefits and 1 drawback that each evidenced-based therapeutic intervention provides. How might your client react to this assistance, and how might you convince him to try therapy?
You should cite sources using APA format, and include a reference section at the end of your submission.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
