vCase Conceptualization and Transcription

This assignment has two parts, based on the client and recorded role-play from the face-to-face residency. Part 1 is the completed case conceptualization; Part 2 is the transcription analysis. Once completed, you will upload the two separate documents to the assignment area.

Part 1:  Case Conceptualization

Open the Case Conceptualization media piece (linked in the Resources) and complete the information in the online form for the tab titled “Case Conceptualization.” Be certain to review the scoring guide before you begin writing and note that integrating current peer-reviewed literature is required to meet the Distinguished criteria. The selected counseling theory should be consistent with what you applied in your recorded role-play and guide how you frame the treatment goals and interventions selected.

You do not have to complete the plan in one setting; you may save your work and return to the plan as many times as you need to complete your work. This gives you the opportunity to build your case conceptualization in stages. Once you have completed each of the sections, including an APA style reference list, you will create a PDF to be uploaded in the assignment area.

Part 2: Transcription Analysis

For this part of the assignment, you will transcribe a ten-minute segment of the recorded role-play. Use the Transcription Form (linked in Resources) to create your transcript. Be sure to complete all columns in the transcription form. Format the Transcription Form columns as follows:

  • Transcription column: Use a different row for each speaker’s words. Use “CO” for Counselor and “CL” for Client.
  • Clinical Competencies Utilized column: (“What I Did.”) Identify clinical competencies. Competencies may include application of core counseling skills, assessment questions, diagnosis, and theory-based interventions, depending on what is demonstrated in your segment of the counseling. Examples:
    • Reflection of experience.
    • Minimal simple encouragement or simple empathic statement (core counseling skills).
    • Assessment question.
    • Identifying, acknowledging, or reviewing symptoms (link to diagnosis).
    • Other responses that are specific to your chosen theoretical approach.
  • Analysis of Clinical Thinking column: (“What I Was Thinking.”) Analyze your reasoning for your response. Provide a rationale that is based on the client’s statement, your theoretical approach, or both. Identify the theoretical approach by pointing out examples of your use of the model’s main concepts. Examples:
    • “I see Audrey’s difficulty with social situations in part as being due to learned behavior” (link to theory). “Her tendency to generalize her shyness to all areas of her life keeps her from making any progress.”
    • “So, on a scale of 1 to 10, how close to your goal do you see yourself?” (Potential counselor statement in the transcription column). “Here I was using a scaling question from the solution-focused model.”
  • Evaluation of Response column: (“What I Would Do Differently Now.”) Evaluate the effectiveness of your statements and include anything you could do differently. Example:
    • “I think pointing out Audrey’s irrational thinking is important. At the same time, I now think I may be moving the process a bit too quickly. I think an empathic response would have been more effective here. I am basing this on how Audrey responded after I pointed out she was generalizing her negative thinking. I wish I had said __ .”

Requirements

You are expected to meet the following requirements.

  • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.

Resources

vvvvFor this assignment, you will further develop a treatment plan for one case study subject that you previously selected from eight possible candidates. The clients in the case studies are ethnically diverse and are struggling with a variety of mental health issues.

During the course of this project you will:

  • Evaluate client information.
  • Review possible assessment techniques.
  • Offer a diagnostic impression.
  • Review various behavioral and pharmacological treatments.
  • Discuss the legal and ethical ramifications of the disorder and proposed treatments.
  • Review the impact of diversity issues on various disorders and their treatments.
  • Develop a suggested treatment plan for the client.

You do not have to complete the assignment all in one sitting; you may save your work and then access your treatment plan at all times by relaunching the presentation.

Levi’s Case

Photo of young man's face.

Levi is a 35-year-old Jewish male who is HIV positive. He works as an auto mechanic. Since learning that he was HIV positive 10 years ago, Levi has been on medications that have stopped the progression to AIDS, and Levi is fairly healthy. However, the emotional toll has been much more serious. Levi has withdrawn from most social interactions. He has not told anyone in his family, and has fallen away from most of his friends. He has been able to obtain a variety of medications for anxiety, and often takes more than the prescribed dosage. In addition, he has had a cocaine habit that he views as his one area of excitement in life. His pattern of use is on weekends, or sometimes as a pick-me-up to get to work. He tends to use the anti-anxiety medications in the evening to help him relax and sleep. He sees his life slipping away in what has come to feel like an increasingly empty lifestyle. He calls a counselor to talk about his problems.

Tommy’s Case

Photo of young man in Army uniform.

Tommy, a 22-year-old white male, has recently returned from an overseas deployment as a member of the armed services. During his time there, his unit lost two members after a roadside bomb caused an accident. Tommy was in the hospital for a concussion after the accident and was never able to return to his unit. He is married and has a two-year-old daughter. Since returning, Tommy has been going to bars during the day and often drinking until passing out at home during the evenings. His wife, Angie, is extremely alarmed, not only for Tommy but for herself and their child, as Tommy gets very angry at times.

Andrea’s Case

Photo of teenage hispanic girl.

Andrea is a 17-year-old undocumented Hispanic in the U.S. She crossed the Mexican border with her mother last year. Her mother is finding sporadic work. At times Andrea has been able to work with her mother. However, there are many days when Andrea is left by herself in the rundown building where they live with other undocumented individuals. Andrea got involved in a sexual relationship with a young man who also lives in the building and now she is six weeks pregnant. She doesn’t want the baby, but her mother is a strict Catholic, and Andrea knows she won’t condone an abortion. She has come to you for help.

Hafsa’s Case

Photo of young muslim woman.

Hafsa is a 24-year-old Muslim woman. She was able to relocate to the United States when she was 18. She has been living on her own, taking college courses and working since that time. Recently, her family has been able to come to the United States and they have joined her. Her family is having trouble assimilating in the U.S. They expect Hafsa to work and support them, to always be available to take them where they want to go, and to serve as an interpreter, etcetera. Since Hafsa has been in the United States, she is less observant of the strict, traditional Muslim guidelines that her family practices (such as observance of holidays, prayers, customs of food, and abstaining from alcohol). This is a constant source of conflict within the family.

Keyan’s Case

.

Keyan is a 42-year-old Native-American, married male who presents in the office in a distressed state. He states, “My anger has been hurting my marriage. I hit my wife, she called the law, and I went to jail. I have a domestic violence charge that will most likely be reduced, but the damage to my marriage is done. I also have anger in me that comes out at work every once in a while.” Keyan has an associate’s degree in business management and works more than 40 hours a week for the city, coordinating road maintenance projects and crews. During busy times of the year, he works much longer hours. This is his third marriage, and he and his wife, Mika, have been married for three years. This is the first marriage for Mika. They have no children.

Angie’s Case

.

Angie is a 41-year-old white female who is a referral from her pastor. She states that she has been living, “a sinful life, and I have decided I want to straighten out. God has a plan for me, and I want to change.” Angie is pursuing a partner track position in a medium-sized law firm in town but has been otherwise unemployed for the past year and a half. She has two children who currently reside with their father, who has full custody. Angie just regained her law license, as it was suspended for 12 months due to ethical conflicts. A female client complained to the state bar that Angie interfered with her divorce mediation by becoming sexually involved with the ex-husband. Angie was fired from two previous firms for inappropriate sexual relations with clients. She would like to be able to answer the question her friends ask, “How could such a smart woman do such dumb things to ruin her family and career?”

Todd’s Case

.

Todd, a 66-year-old African-American man, recently retired after 40 years of teaching high school social studies and coaching, to tend to his wife and two grandsons. He needed to be home to take care of his wife, who has advancing Alzheimer’s. Mike is also the guardian for his two grandsons, ages 9 and 12. The grandsons became his and his wife’s responsibility two years ago, after the death of their daughter due to a drug overdose. Todd loved teaching and did not want to retire, but felt overwhelmed by family demands. So far, he is “holding it together,” but is afraid his social isolation due to caring for his family is going to “pull him under.”

Cailyn’s Case

.

Cailyn is a 20-year-old African-American female who has been attending college out of state for the past 3 years. She plans to return home after graduation to seek employment and give back to her family, who sacrificed so much to support her education. During the past three years, Cailyn has identified openly as a lesbian on campus and has been in several female relationships during this time. Currently, she is not in a relationship and is not allowing herself to date, for fear of falling in love and then having to move away. Her family disapproves of homosexuality and believes it is sinful. Cailyn’s family would likely ostracize her if they were to find out about her relationships with other women. She has become very depressed over the past month and anticipates that she will live a very lonely life after graduation.

Case Conceptualization

A case conceptualization is an opportunity for a clinician to take information about a client and paint a clinical picture that includes information such as diagnosis, treatment planning, theoretical framework, and intervention selection. This should be written in normal, narrative language, not using clinical shorthand (for example, “client stated…,” “client presented….” Instead, write, “The client is a 42-year-old female who is dealing with many life changes…”). Provide the overall clinical treatment picture for this client, including the following:
