Theoretical frames

1: Select at least two theoretical frames, e.g., psychodynamic & cognitive-behavioral. Briefly discuss the basic premise of each (citing sources). Compare and contrast how they are similar
and/or different from each other. Briefly discuss how each would inform your view of the case.
2: Outline and discuss assessment of biopsychosocial and spiritual dimensions of the case including developmental aspects, identifying needs and strengths as well as cultural and ethnic dynamics of importance. Critically address issues of diversity including, but not limited to, socio-
economic status.
3: Identify strengths and challenges that seem to emerge as you read the case. Speculate how you
might use those in forming a plan for intervention.
4: How ready is this person for a change? What questions might you ask to assess the level of change? What coping strategies seem to be present? What supports and strengths will you use to help form a plan for intervention? What diagnoses would you assign and briefly discuss why
did you choose them? How did you engage in a culturally responsive diagnostic process?
5: Formulate a plan for intervention based on research regarding evidence-based practices that are associated with the diagnoses you identified. Include sample goals and strategies that are
informed by the person served.
6: How will you evaluate the intervention plan you proposed? What severity measures will you
use? How do they become part of the evaluation plan?
