For this assignment, you will start by selecting one of the case studies (accessible from the Course Resources) and develop a patient portfolio. The goal of the portfolio is to identify a disorder and recommend a plan of action to help the patient manage their symptoms and change behavior for therapeutic outcomes.
Do a search of the Library and the internet for resources. You are also to use the course textbook, but your project should include at least four additional references from the Library and/or the internet (your final assignment must include one Library resource and three additional Library or internet sources). The internet sources you use for the assignment should be credible. You should not use internet sites such as About.com or Wikipedia, where anyone can post information. Your information should be from acceptable psychological or medical societies, such as the National Institute of Health, WebMD®, etc.
You will then address the following areas that are outlined in the patient portfolio template. Parts 2–4 of the patient portfolio should be a minimum of 675 words. All work should be in the student’s own words, with quotes used very sparingly. No more than 10% of the work should be direct quotations.
Using the provided template as-is, develop the patient’s portfolio by addressing the following:
Part 1: Background Information About the Patient
Provide background information that includes:
The patient’s disorder.
A list of the diagnostic criteria that the patient meets listed in the DSM-5 under the diagnostic criteria for the disorder.
Part 2: Psychological Approach
Select a psychological theory from the course textbook (choose either a cognitive or behavioral theory). Refer directly to the textbook or an academic source to explain the theory. After explaining the theory, apply it by discussing how it may explain the development of the case study’s mental illness. (Approximately 225 words)
Part 3: Biological Approach
Select a theory from the biological approach from the course textbook (choose either the genetic or neurological influence). Refer directly to the textbook or an academic source to explain the theory. After explaining the theory, apply it by discussing how it may explain the development of the case study’s mental illness. (Approximately 225 words)
Part 4: Sociocultural Approach
Select a theory from the social and cultural or interpersonal relationship approach from the course textbook. Refer to the textbook or an academic source to explain the theory. After explaining the theory, apply it by discussing how it may explain the development of the case study’s mental illness. (Approximately 225 words)
Part 5: Treatment
Discuss what types of medical approaches (ECT, prescriiption medications, psychosurgery, or current medical devices) you would recommend for the patient by referring to studies showing effectiveness in treating the disorder. (Approximately 75 words)
Compare and contrast the side effects the patient may experience from the selected type of medical approach and support what benefit the treatment has on the brain chemistry or neurotransmitter activity. (Approximately 75 words)
Discuss psychotherapy options (e.g., cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, exposure therapy). Explain the chosen therapy and specifically how the patient would benefit from it. (Approximately 100 words)
Provide both short and long-term goals for the patient’s treatment plan. Include accomplishments or behavioral changes you want to see in the patient. (Approximately 75 words)
Part 6: Conclusion
Discuss which of the approaches can best explain the development (or cause) of the case study’s mental disorder and why your chosen treatment plan would be the most beneficial plan for the patient (biological approach, psychological approach, or sociocultural approach). (Approximately 150 words)
