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.
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.
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:
(“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:
You are expected to meet the following requirements.
For 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:
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.
