Your case study is to be the equivalent of three pages, double-spaced. Your written case study must address the following: two etiological causes, three symptoms, and two forms of treatment for a mental disorder. Please number and bold font these causes, symptoms, and forms of treatment. Please also address some of the other information listed below that you see as pertinent to your case.
You will need to provide in-text citations of your sources in APA style as well as APA style references at the end of the paper. You should write your paper in narrative format (as if it were a story being told from either the perspective of the therapist or the client (most students write it from the perspective of the therapist).
You will select a mental disorder on which to write your case study. To write your case study, carefully consider the symptoms of the disorder as listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5
In your case study, you will write about a fictional person, someone you create with your own imagination, who has the mental disorder you are writing about. Be as creative as you can. In the case study, you should list the following things, in “narrative form”. This means that you will not merely write sentences addressing each of these points, but rather, will write a cohesive description of this person and their life.
Address these points in your case study in narrative form, along with anything else you would like to include:
Name of person, age, ethnicity/ethnicities, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, geographic location, ability status (disabled/able bodied), etc..
Profession, student status, etc..
Personal life: who live with, where, for how long, kids, etc…
Social world: Who are their friends, what are the person’s hobbies, etc…
Family history: parents, siblings, where grew up, how this affected current disorder. Relevant information regarding level of family functioning and support; family history of psychopathology, alcoholism, abuse, etc…
Past psychological problems, previous therapy, medical problems
Symptoms and how they affect them personally, and how it affects their functioning in the different areas of their life.
What types of behaviors are they exhibiting? What have they done to make their disorder better, if anything?
Finally, pretend that you were to offer recommendations as to what this person should do to treat their problem. What would the goals of therapy be? How would you treat the disorder? Would you recommend individual or group counseling, medication, other treatments?
NOTE: You are not limited to only covering the bullet points above. If there are other things you would like to include, please feel free to do so.
Once again, do not forget to include the following: etiological causes, three symptoms, and two forms of treatment for a mental disorder. Please number and bold font these causes, symptoms, and forms of treatment.
