This is a 2 part paper. The first part of the paper (CaseConceptualization) has been completed and graded. The second part (Case Formulationwith Treatment Plan) is the basis for this assignment. The first part will be uploaded….
Here are the directions:
Prepare a written clinical case formulation that includes a literature review relevant to the presenting problems, case conceptualization (may be same client from u03a1), etiology of the presenting problem and diagnosis, theoretical approach, treatment plan, treatment referral, and potential ethical and legal issues involved.
The case also should involve a client with multiple problems and systems issues (such as family, school, work) and be a client from social-cultural backgrounds different from the counselor. The information in your case conceptualization should lead you to clinical hypotheses about what drives the client’s presenting problem(s) and the hypotheses should dictate the treatment goals for your clients. This formulation should be centered in an integrative theoretical approach best suited for your client. You may wish to utilize Activity 1.1 (Ingram, 2006, p. 548) and Maria: A Sample Case Formulation Report (Ingram, 2006, p. 589??”597) as resources in how to create a Case Formulation Report. If you need me to send a copy of the Case Formulation…let me know.
To successfully complete this project, you will be expected to:
1. Evaluate the major counseling theories related to clinical practice.
2. Establish long and short range counseling goals based on theoretical counseling orientation.
3. Apply counseling theories, techniques, and methods to client needs.

Overall Comments from first PART !
Rodney you presented an interesting case with attention to cultural dimension in terms of black women (are you considering research in this area for dissertation?), but not so much in terms of ethnicity. I noted you addressed this creatively in your post in terms of the meaning attributed to weight for example. Certainly cultural considerations are ethical considerations in counseling – discussing this more explicitly, and perhaps the crisis element of this case in terms of voluntary treatment would have helped you more fully meet the criteria. Check on your APA formatting in terms of the Running head: COMPREHENSIVE CASE STUDY. Note I did credit you fully for the last criterion given your in depth discussion of approaches but noted there was little support provided relative to the effectiveness of these approaches, especially with a client of this cultural background.
