By clicking on the name of the disorder, you can see the prevalence of that disorder in the United States

 

Step 2: Find and discuss the symptoms of the psychological disorder. To do this, you will search the internet. A suggestion is that you type into your search engine the name of the disorder you are researching and the word symptoms (for example: symptoms of depression). You will use this information to describe the symptoms your client has come to you with. 

Step 3: Background Information- Provide background information about your client that may be useful in understanding his/her current psychological disorder (you will have to make this up) 

 

Step 4: Treatment Options- Write the treatment options you recommend for this client. To find out treatment options, you can search the internet for “treatment options for depression.” Use the Chapter in your textbook that discusses treatment options for psychological disorders. These treatment options should be traditional treatment options. Remember, you are a psychologist, not a psychiatrist—this means you cannot prescribe medication to your client. You will need to explain how you, as the psychologist, would provide therapy to your client (use the therapies in the textbook to guide you).

 

Step 5: Alternative Treatment Options. Go to the National Coalition of Creative Arts Therapies Associations website http://www.nccata.org/index.htm. Choose one of the creative arts therapies by clicking on the hyperlink for the specific therapy (art therapy, dance/movement therapy, drama therapy, music therapy, poetry therapy, or psychodrama). Write a description of how your client can participate in one of these creative arts therapies in addition to his/her traditional therapy options. 

 

Step 6: Find two self-help books that are associated with the psychological disorder you have chosen. A self-help book is defined as a “Book telling readers how to improve their lives through their own efforts.” You can search Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, or Half.Com, public library or any other virtual or physical with books. Why would you recommend this particular book to your client? Note: you do not have to read the books, however, you should be familiar with what the book is about since you are going to recommend it. 

 

Step 7: Recommendations for locating services: you will now recommend two places in Fort Worth (and/or the city in which you live) where your client can go for psychological treatment.
