What is a Treatment Plan & how do we make one? Mental Health Help with Kati Morton
What is a Treatment Plan & how do we make one? Today I talk about treatment plans and what therapists really do behind the scenes. I think it's really important to know how therapy really works and why therapists ask you the questions they do. Most therapist will ask you at the beginning "what brought you here today" and try to work out what your main goal for therapy is. This helps us better create a plan. From there we begin the assessment process. This could be diagnosis, figuring out what you have worked on before, your school and family history, etc. While doing this, we will also be giving you homework and trying out new tools to see what works for you and what doesn't. The main goal for any therapist is that you don't need to see us anymore. That being said, know that coming back to therapy is normal and most therapists have an open door policy :) So let your process be just that and go back if you need to. It honestly means that you have gained insight and recognize when you need a little extra support. I hope you found this video helpful!! Please share on your social media sites!

A Clinical Social Work Intervention
Marisa de Mireille, a recent graduate of a program in Social Work, discusses an intervention that she led with a client. A typical intervention with a client involves several meetings to assess the client's situation, to discuss a diagnosis, to agree on a treatment plan, and to go forward with the treatment sessions to try to bring about the desired changes. Confidentiality is a key to the intervention: the Clinical Social Worker is skilled in establishing a therapeutic alliance with the client in order to build the trust that is needed for the client to disclose personal information; the Clinical Social Worker has knowledge of many different theories related to mental health, problems, and disorders. The Clinical Social Worker usually selects the one theory that seems most appropriate to the unique situation of the client, and uses it to guide their progress together. Please note that we have preserved strict confidentiality about the client's identity, the name of the agency, and the state in which the intervention was conducted.

Screening and Assessment for Family Engagement and Retention
The New England Addiction Technology Transfer Center (New England ATTC) has partnered with the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) to develop a web-based series on effective strategies, practices and policies addressing families with substance use disorders (SUDs) in the child welfare system. This webinar presents information on screening and assessment for family engagement and retention. Screening, assessment as well as communication and active collaboration across systems help ensure that parents in need of substance abuse treatment are identified and receive appropriate treatment in a timely manner. This webinar will explore strategies and issues involved at both a systems and practice level. Specifically, participants will learn about Connecticut’s Recovery Specialist Voluntary Program (RSVP). RSVP is a program for child welfare involved parents/caregivers who have had a child removed that facilitates timely access to family-centered substance use treatment. This program is a result of a joint collaboration between child welfare, the dependency courts and substance use treatment to develop an integrated system of care for substance affected families by changing policies, procedures and practices to promote inter-agency collaboration and data sharing. A panel will highlight the creative solutions that the collaborative used to sustain and expand beyond the original pilot sites by engaging key stakeholders and re-directing funding.

How to Write SOAP Format for Mental Health Counselors
CLICK HERE ►► http://www.soapnoteexample.com/ In this brief presentation on SOAP Note Format we will: Discuss the difference between Subjective and Objective data Show concrete examples of subjective and objective data Help you gain confidence using SOAP format SOAP is a very popular format MH therapists use to document important details from the clients session. Subjective data is what the client: States, reports, complains of, describes etc. this is the clients viewpoint. Examples of subjective data the clinician would record are: The client stated he is feeling much less depressed than when he began counseling The client reports she feels nauseas after taking her depression medication The client complained of feeling unmotivated to look for a job The client described having a loud argument with her husband and shared this often happens when they have been drinking alcohol. Client described feeling anxious and scared this morning while driving to therapy Take away tip: subjective data has to do with what the client shares, reports, describes or otherwise expresses. It’s not always easy to determine what is subjective and what is objective, one way to look at it is the objective data is the therapist’s observable and measureable and factual contribution. Examples of objective data the clinician would record are: Objective data should focus in on: Mental health and mood status Motivation Behavior Physical health Emotions Level of functioning Personality issues In other words many of the same criteria used in your DSM V diagnosis For example the clinician might write: Client was motivated to accomplish goals as evidenced by completion of homework assignment Client wrung hands throughout session Client was experiencing a headache during the session Client’s emotions were labile – he swung from inappropriate laughing to crying. Take away tip: Remember the Objective data is mainly measurable and observable. The Assessment is where the therapist brings it all together and expresses his thoughts about what is going on with the client, based on the S and the O. Some therapist also use this space to update the DSM diagnosis or to Rule out or rule in a diagnosis. In any case, if there is a formal diagnosis the assessment should certainly tie into the formal diagnosis. If one is using formal DSM diagnoses there must be enough evidence in the client assessment to support the diagnoses. Also, in focusing on the assessment portion of the clinical note will help the therapist to keep track of and record any mental health criteria changes. When writing the assessment it is a good time to ask yourself if the client still meets the diagnostic criteria. Does the data support the diagnosis. The assessment should focus on those criteria that contribute to understanding the problem better and/or reaching an appropriate and accurate diagnosis. For example the clinician might write under assessment: Client continues to experience depression NOS Client has occupational and family stressors Client expressing inappropriate anger Client exceptionally fearful of being abandoned Client test results showed hypothyroidism Take away tip: Remember the Assessment is where you make sense of and assimilate the subjective and objective data. The Plan essentially is the action steps and/or the clinical interventions. It is presumably the plan and clinical interventions that drive treatment forward and encourage the client to meet their goals and objectives. Under the Plan section of the SOAP the therapist might write things like: That both the client and counselor are committed to doing, i.e. the client rescheduled for following week Plus interventions: The client is committed to attending the domestic violence support group Therapist will continue EMDR and biblio-therapy Next session therapist will use guided meditation and assist client in learning relaxation skills. Other interventions such as nutritional, medical or physical fitness interventions and the like that contribute to the clients therapeutic goals and objectives should be noted. Take away tip: Remember the Plan is essentially a record of the action you and your client are committed to taking. In Summary, remember to review SOAP note format tips regularly. The more confidant you are in how to document your sessions, the easier and more enjoyable this part of your job will be. Plus and most importantly the SOAP format will help you to stay focused on what is therapeutically important.

A Grade Solution Only
b'  In order to provide the appropriate intervention, social workers first need to have conducted a thorough assessment. Having a comprehensive understanding of a client and their social environment, including the influence of racism and ethnocentrism, allows a social worker to accurately identify the presenting problems and help the client develop goals to address their needs. Not completing a full assessment may result in inaccurately identifying the presenting problem and pushing goals on the client to which they do not agree. A good assessment is the best foundation for treatment planning. In addition, evidence based practice requires social workers to use the best available evidence to inform their practice decisions. This assignment helps you prepare for the final project by beginning to identify the presenting problem and possible goals, as well as beginning the research process to inform your treatment recommendations when working with the identified client in a case study. CASE STUDY: JUAN AND ELENA    Submit a 3 pages paper in which you: Identify the case you will be using for the final project Describe the presenting problem(s) Describe 2 goals for the client based on their presenting problem Identify a specific peer-reviewed article and explain how it could inform understanding of the problem/population, development of goals, or intervention and treatment plan Explain how ethnocentrism and racism may influence the case (make sure to draw from this week’s assigned readings) USE REFERENCES BELOW ONLY:   Zastrow, C.

SCWK 283 Assignment 1
Role: Psychiatric Social Work Intern. Assessment; psycho-education; advocacy; exploring risk-protecting factors; exploring PIE factors; exploring ecological barriers; collaboration with other treatment members and providers; inform client's rights; service referrals. Client: 16 year-old teenager. Context: Group Home. Presenting psychiatric symptoms: depression; complaints of lethargy, low appetite, insomnia, low sex drive, meaninglessness in life. Treatment services: individual and family therapy, CBT and IMPACT integration to target depression. Family has a history of depression in father and brother. Intern is locating services in community for the client to address his interests in basketball. Co-morbidity: None. Client is a healthy teenager. No substance abuse history. No prior history of physical/emotional/sexual abuse. Drug treatment of choice: Prozac. Client's concerns/resistance to pharmacological treatment: only "crazy kids" take psychotropic medication, medication will make the client "crazy" as well, and medication will "mess" with his libido. Pharmacological treatment plan: starting Prozac at a low dosage to help the client ease into treatment. Prozac is relatively cheap, has long half-life, and needs only to be taken once a day. This addresses the client's concern of having to take too many medications and also have friends seeing the medication being taken at school, as medication can be taken in the morning. Medication adherence: staff monitoring, tools suggested to client for self-efficacy such as setting up repeat reminders in cellphone, free apps such as MediSafe or Nightingale, and Intern will check on the client via phone to ensure that medication is being taken consistently. Efficacy: It is stressed to the client that he is taking important steps toward treating his depression, as therapy + medication have been shown to be very effective in alleviating depression. It is also emphasized that medication must be taken consistently in order for it to be effective, and it takes around 4-6 weeks for the client to notice improvement in symptoms (somatic [first], cognitive, affective). Side Effects: upset stomach, diarrhea, reduced sex drive/sexual dysfunction, serotonin syndrome, anxiety and black box warning of suicidality. Treatment for side effects: GI side effects tend to subside over a couple of weeks, and PRN is described to help. Sexual-related side effects are framed as cost vs. benefit, with the client's recovery from depression and not being currently sexually active worth the risk of this side effect. Serotonin syndrome: avoid any other drugs that increase serotonin as well, such as MAOI, TCA, cocaine, LSD, ecstasy. Black box warning: contact intern and psychiatrist immediately, Prozac might have to be adjusted or switched.

How SMART are your goals? How to recognize and write SMART goals for change.
Do you want to make a successful change? Learn how to develop SMART goals. How SMART are your goals? When you are developing goals, whether they are for personal learning or achievement, clients or care plans you need to be sure they are SMART. Writing SMART goals takes some time, but it increases your chances of success because you can clearly see and understand where you are headed. SMART is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant/Realistic and Time-limited. This concept has been used for more than three decades in business, psychology and education literature to promote behavior change. It is an evidence-based approach to promoting practice changes. Each component of SMART goals in promoting performance improvements has been studied and supported by literature. To be specific your goal needs to be clear and detailed enough for everyone to understand it. To be measurable your goal needs to be quantifiable. Make sure you avoid being vague. Ask yourself, How will you measure the results? What changes will you see? To be attainable you need to be able to achieve the goal. It needs to be realistic given your current abilities and resources. To be relevant your goal needs to be linked to your role in the work setting or your personal life if it is a personal goal. Some forms of this acronym replace "relevant" with "realistic." It is also important to consider if each component of your goal is realistic. Placing a time limit on the goal is important because deadlines motivate you and help you evaluate your progress. Again, think about your deadline and make sure it is realistic. Here is an example of a common goal I hear. Is this goal SMART? "To lose weight." Nope -- It's not SMART. How much weight do you want to lose? When do you want to lose it? This goal may be Relevant to the person but it is not Specific, Measurable or Time-limited. You may think it is attainable, but even if you have the needed skills and resources to lose weight it is going to be hard to achieve your goal with it written like this. It is too vague so it will not help to motivate you. How about this goal? "To lose 30 pounds in the next two weeks." Wow! 30 pounds in only two weeks? That is not healthy or realistic according to current standards! I would say that in most situations that is not an attainable goal (unless maybe you are having it cut off). Lets try again. How about "To lose 10 pounds in the next six weeks." I would say it is specific and measurable. To assess if it is attainable think about how you are planning to lose weight. Through healthy eating and exercise this goal would be attainable because it means losing less than 2 pounds per week, which is in line with current recommendations for sustainable weight loss. Weight loss is relevant to an overall healthy lifestyle for many people. The goal is time limited to two weeks, which sets a deadline for evaluation. YAY! It is a SMART goal! Let's look at a some learning goals. Are there any SMART goals? 1. To accurately perform vital signs. 2. To improve hand washing techniques before the next clinical day. 3. To learn and perform all assigned assessments for the semester in one clinical day. 4. To perform a head to toe assessment according to the guidelines in Jarvis (2009) by the end of the clinical placement. They are all relevant to the role of a student nurse in the clinical setting. #1 does not have a time limit. When will you perform vital signs? So it is not SMART. #2 is not measurable. What kind of improvement are you aiming for? So it is not SMART. #3 is not attainable. So it is not SMART. #4 is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-limited. YAY!! Do you see the difference? Finally lets look at some goals for a client who has just had a newborn baby and wants to breastfeed. Which one is SMART enough for the care plan? #1 is not realistic because she will need to wake up in the night to feed the baby. So it is not SMART. Remove it from the care plan! #2 is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-limited. YAY!! #3 is not time-limited. So it is not SMART. Add a realistic time frame and it can stay in the care plan. #4 is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-limited. YAY!! For more information about learning goals for nurses visit the College of Nurses website and use the worksheet in this document to help you formulate a SMART learning goal. These SMART goals are a requirement for nurses. Thank you for watching. Please let me know what you thought of this video. I hope you have SMART goals from now on!

Case study clinical example: First session with a client with symptoms of social anxiety (CBT model)
Case study example for use in teaching, aiming to demonstrate some of the triggers, thoughts, feelings and responses linked with problematic social anxiety. This section here represents the first 12 minutes of an initial therapy session, but in order to try and outline the vicious cycle, it moves faster than an average session might. The video features an actor (Malak El-Gonemy) playing the character of Hannah, but the dialogue is not scripted, and as such represents a natural therapeutic exchange. I myself am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, but would definitely not suggest that this is a perfect example of therapy! This video was produced as a collaboration between the University of Leeds and Leeds Trinity University (Ricardo Barker).
