Detailed Instructions for
answering the Case Study
In this Case Studies, you
are the therapist and the person in the case study is your client. When
writing your response for each section, remember to put yourself in the
shoes of the therapist. As the
therapist, you have the skills and education to provide therapeutic care for
Your client’s diagnosis is written
within the case study. You must read the
entire case study and you will see the diagnosis. Please write it exactly how it is written
within the case study (do not shorten it or add to it).

The only time you will refer your
client for outside services is when they are in need of the following:

evaluation to assess need for medication.
Referral to physician to rule out medical issues
or to address medical needs.
Referral to nutritionist for an evaluation to
address dietary needs.
Referral to neurologist for an evaluation to
rule out neurological needs or address neurological needs.
As a therapist, we sometimes
coordinate care with other providers to assist our client.
As a therapist, we also provide
psychotherapy to educate our client and family members about their illness,
treatment options, and resources.
As a therapist, it is not unusual
for us to provide both individual therapy to our client and at times family
therapy with our client and their family members to help support our client’s
needs within the family system. However,
if our client is in need of marital counseling, it is best to refer them to a
marriage counselor while we continue to provide individual services to our
client. This can help us avoid
unforeseen ethical dilemmas.
