Assignment Description

In this assignment, you expand upon the case you selected in Unit 2, including determining a diagnosis. You locate and select at least five recent (published within the past five years) peer-reviewed articles from the Capella University Library. You use these articles to justify your diagnosis and recommended interventions. In social work, it is important that we maintain the strengths-based perspective and consistently apply the generalist intervention model. This model allows us to view a client through the micro, mezzo, and macro setting.

    • Consider all potentially fitting diagnoses, discuss the differential diagnoses, and discuss rule out diagnoses and why.

  2. Describe the therapy or intervention you would provide this client. 
    • Apply theory to contextualize the appropriateness of your chosen therapy/intervention.
  3. Describe an intervention appropriate for the client’s family or community. 
    • Justify the recommended intervention with reference to specific DSM-5-TR criteria.
  4. Cite peer-reviewed literature within the intervention plan.
