My case study will be over Bipolar 1 disorder.
The case report provides an opportunity for students to write a realistic profile of an adult who is suffering from a specific disorder. The goal of this assignment is to showcase knowledge of the disorder by synthesizing and applying information learned from readings and lecture. Minimum of three references (empirical articles) should be cited.
-Minimum 1500 words
-APA style (including references)
BOTH Title page and references ARE required (these do NOT count towards the overall word count)
-Double-spaced, Times New Roman, 1-inch margins
a. Provide an overview of the symptom presentation with specific examples of each symptom. Example: “John Doe is a 28-year-old, Hispanic male who was self-referred regarding feelings of anxiety when interacting with others. He reported that he constantly worries about being judged negatively in social situations. Last week, John excused himself from a meeting at work because he worried that his co-workers could see his hands shaking while they were discussing a meeting strategy. He believes they think he is ‘weird’ and has been unable to attend a meeting since.”
b. Discuss the etiology of the disorder and purported risk factors for this particular case. Example: “John Doe has always been a shy child. John reported that he remembers his mother becoming angry if he refused to speak in social situations. John made a few friends in elementary school, but in 3rd grade one of John’s best friends suddenly stopped talking to him. This friend began teasing John at school, calling him names and throwing things at him when the teacher was not looking.
c. Describe the treatment plan with rationale for why the selected treatment is indicated Example: “John Doe would benefit from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) targeting social anxiety disorder (SAD). Specific treatment goals include reduced subjective anxiety in social situations, increased prosocial behavior, improved workplace productivity, and increased social support and communication. The first few sessions will focus on psychoeducation to provide John with a better understanding of SAD and its treatment. The next phase of treatment will focus on exposure therapy. John will be gradually exposed John to social situations of increasing difficulty. For example, John will start by walking down the street and saying a quick hello to the people he walks by. Next, John will add another statement about the weather as he walks by each person. … John will wear a sombrero while shopping at the market. Lastly, John will make ‘dumb’ comments during his work meeting, as his core fear revolves around being teased or ridiculed. Because CBT in combination with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI; Gould et al., 1997) has been shown to be most effective in the treatment of SAD, John will also be referred to a psychiatrist to initiate a trial of Fluoxetine.”
d. Cite a minimum of 3 references to provide adequate support for your diagnosis, etiology, risk factors, and treatment.
