Heading for each section is required and there is an example on how each section should be done.
I typically deduct a lot of points for this section….so I wanted to highlight a tip here.
This is taken from the template:
Overview of the Client
In this section, you should provide an overview of the client using the biopsychosocial model. Included should be biological predispositions, family influences, cultural considerations, and other systemic factors as applicable. It is suggested that you have at least one paragraph each for the above areas. T
hese paragraphs should review the research
related the areas, and then apply back to the client/case.
Please do not just summarize the character/client here. Give me content that I couldn’t read or watch about this case. You should include RESEARCH related to biology, family, culture, etc. How do these interact with addiction? Think back to early weeks of the course where we covered these issues. Review the research and then link it back to the case. You need to demonstrate some insight here, don’t just review the movie, book, etc.
Addiction Assessment and Intervention Plan For your Final Project, you will apply the information you have learned in this course to critically analyze a case study and develop an Assessment and Intervention Plan based on it. Your Final Project must explain the choices you made in your plan and be supported with scholarly references from peer-reviewed literature and your course text. The case study for your project will be selected by you from published media (literature or film). The subject of the case study should be at least 16 years of age and meet criteria for a substance-related or addictive disorder. Your Final Project should be 10–12 pages and include all of the following: 1. Overview of client using biopsychosocial model—this should include biological predispositions, family influences, cultural considerations, and other systemic factors, as applicable. 2. Assessment tools and rationale for selection 3. Provisional diagnosis with criteria; alternate considerations and rule-outs noted 4. Chosen therapeutic approach with rationale for selection; initial treatment goals for client 5. Ethical and legal considerations 6. Relapse prevention and continuum of care plan Don’t forget to include an introduction and summary in your paper! Although the Final Project is not to be submitted until Day 4 of Week 11, you should become familiar with the case study and project requirements and have them in mind as you proceed through the course. It is wise to select a subject for your final project at the start of the term, so you can conceptualize each section of the project as you progress through the course. The Final Project will be evaluated according to all four indicators in the Application Assignment and Final Paper Writing Rubric located in the Course Info area. Be sure that the Final Project is written using APA format. Information on scholarly writing may be found in the APA Publication Manual (6th ed.) and at the Walden Writing Center website. Also, refer to the Code of Conduct and Academic Integrity section of the Guidelines and Policies area of the course navigation menu.
