please follow this intruction and the asignment that i’m going to put also i’m going to uplow the chaptes.
Read the scenario below. It may be somewhat familiar to some of you:
Julia, a 28 year old woman of mixed Dominican and African-American heritage, lost her job as a hostess/manager of a restaurant this past spring due to the pandemic. Although she has spent many months looking for any available work, she has not been able to find anything. She is one semester shy of finishing her degree in Hotel & Hospitality Management but did not return to school this fall because she hated on-line learning and feels that the hotel business is doomed because of COVID. Finally, deeply unhappy with her lack of success she has given up completely, claiming that it would be useless for her to search for a job any longer, that she is too stupid to train for any new career, and that no employer would ever want to hire her after so many months of unemployment. She now stays home, avoids concerned friends and family on-line and in person, rarely leaves her bed despite not being able to sleep, lacks the energy to do house-hold chores or even groom herself, and is often tearful and unhappy.
Some important information about Julia: Julia is a 28 year old woman of Dominican and African-American descent. You are a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been trained in CBT ( Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and who works at a clinic in a community health center and you have conducted the virtual intake with Julia and have also completed the Psychosocial assessment for her case. During your assessment you had her fill out a number of inventories, including the PHQ 9, and she scored a 23. You then referred her to your colleague, Dr. Su-ling, a psychiatrist, who also completed a psychiatric evaluation. Dr Sue Ling was trained in Psychoanalysis early in her career and once was a practicing analyst before giving it up to focus more on psychiatry. You both agree that she has depression, but disagree somewhat on the roots of her depression, her suitability for treatment ( especially since she stated in both interviews she doesn’t believe in taking medications “unless it’s absolutely necessary—like life or death”) and her wllingness to stick to treatment ( she stated she called only because her mother insisted that she do something and this was better than listening to sermons on line.”)
Your assignment is this: Imagine you are on a 3 way video conference with Dr. Ling and the Director of the clinic, to whom you both report. You are discussing cases and deciding next steps and you arrive at Julia’s case. The director has a PhD. in Clinical Psychology and a MSW as well. The Director likes to take a holistic and somewhat eclectic approach to practice and is a good natured referee of sorts during these team conferences, which can be lively, but are always respectful.
Your task is to depict this conversation in a manner that reflects what you know about the client and the clinicians, along with what you have learned about assessment, diagnoses and perspectives on abnormal behavior and its treatment. How might they feel about the client’s current presentation, her situation and the course of treatment? What concerns might they have? Any further test they might want to see? What might be some of the causes of, and contributing factors to her depression according to this diverse group of clinical professionals?
Creativity is welcome: you can write it as a dramatic scene written mostly in dialog or as a brief scene out of a short story. Or you can write it as a traditional essay that compares and contrast the imagined points of views of the protagonist. This assignment should be no less than 500 words ( and no more than a 1000!) as prose and no more than 3 pages of dialog as a play. Your answers should reference material covered in class and from the 1st three chapters! Have fun imagining what would a group of clinicians would sound like talking about a client!
