Over the weekend I was working in Evolv on a client Biopsychosocial Assessment , and I accidentally used Biopsychosocial Assessment RTF. After realizing my error I corrected it and used the Biopsychosocial Assessment RTF V.2, however there are now two assessments in Evolv for the same client. Can you please assist me with deleting the incorrect assessment.
As I arrive into the office the receptionist informs me that my new client has arrived. I greet him and ask him to follow me. In the office I introduce myself and ask him how he is doing today. He seems to have a positive outlook on things. I inform him that his visit today will take no more than an hour. First and foremost I have him read and sign off the consent form. Next I inform the client about privacy and confidentially. I also let him know it is okay to stop me and ask any questions. Lastly, although he has allowed his previous therapist to share his chart with me, I confirm with him once again if it is okay for me to take a look. The client agrees and I begin to conduct his assessment.
In may paper I will be covering the biological, psychological, and social influence on Wes Moore’s life and the events that led up to his sentence of life in prison. Wes Moore is in his mid twenties when he was sentenced to life in prison for the death of a baltimore police officer. In my paper my goal is to give readers a clear understanding on why people act the way to do and why they make the decision they do as well. The tragic Wes’s story is very common of young men in the black community and it could've been anyone facing the same time he is.
Clinical Assessment=According to our book, the term Clinical assessment generally refers to applying assessment procedures to (a) diagnose a mental disorder, (b) develop a plan of intervention, (c)monitor progress in counseling, and (d) evaluate counseling outcome. (Drummond, 2010). Clinical assessment has been the method used when diagnosing and planning treatment for a patient. The first step is evaluating the individual in order to obtain information and figure out what is wrong. Counselors, conduct this assessment to develop and adhere a plan of intervention, monitor clients progress, and ensue all information are interpreted and understood.
This paper introduces the overview of personality assessment approaches in use currently in society. It proceeds to review the big five personality measures, its validity in prediction of personality types (Archer, 2011). The topic on MIPS questionnaires use in personality measurements and scoring methods used by the system is reviewed. Aspects on the social desirability trait and the distortion produced in responses to evaluation questionnaires, being a significant part of the problems in personality assessment is examined. Social desirability does not have an influence on the predictive validity of personality assessments. It is not related to performance in the job. Various strategies used for reduction of social desirability have been studied. The various tools used in assessments are recapitulated including some methodological aspects (Weiner, 2009). Cultural aspects in evaluation of personality discussed are touched upon. Two case studies are used to show the real life situation of personality assessment.
The patient claimed that she had mild depression before her visit. She said that she felt like her job was unfulfilling and that she was disappointed that she did not have a partner. Once she came and sat down with Dr. Santos, she would talk for about ten minutes and then interrupt herself by apologizing saying that the doctor was ‘bored or had better things to do than listen to her’. She told her that was not the case and to keep going. She interrupted herself again three times during her session. Dr. Santos payed an appropriate amount of attention to Mallory. She was careful with her body language, eye contact, and made sure to make Mallory feel that she was interested in what she was
Since I have last seen the patient, she tells me she has been to see [Mary Bluen at Orchard Park in Portsmouth.] She has been seeing her in counseling now for the last six to seven weeks and her next appointment is tomorrow. She says she has been struggling lately with her feelings. She established a relationship with a superior at work who is married and she herself is married. She says this is something that she is trying to work through to figure out why she is making these choices. Her plan is to ultimately end her marriage. She is not sure if she will continue to see this male at work again or not. She is just not sure what her choices are. She said on top of all of this, she just found out today that she has been given a 90 day noticed, so she is not sure if she will even be able to keep the same job and she is fairly certain that this is follow
I feel too attached to this case study of George in a sense that I am a very introverted. I enjoy my time alone and basically prefer it any day over being with others. The most interesting thing is that in the theories I used to explain the case study I saw myself in most of the facts. An example is movement away from others.

In order to diagnose Demi, I used a multitude of DSMs for each of the diseases that she showed signs of. To start off, however, I used the mental status exam during her first visit. I used the mental status exam during our first initial meeting and based upon it I have ruled out any disorder where she could possibly bring harm to others, but she does pose a certain risk to herself where I would like to put her on suicide watch while she is here. During the meeting her appearance was normal for someone who had just gotten off of a long plane ride, her speech and eye contact were normal, and she had a full affect. And, as expected, her mood seemed to be anxious, depressed, irritable, and possibly angry. Her cognition was normal; she had no orientation or memory impairment and had a normal attention. Perception was normal with no hallucinations, but one aspect of her thoughts gives me a reason to put her on suicide watch. Demi has no homicidality or delusions, but she does self-harm which could point to suicide if pushed far enough. She was however very cooperative with answering my questions, but at the same time was agitated at the fact she was in rehab. Her eating disorder had made itself obvious to me, but over the next few days I had noticed some serious mood shifts that could indicate some form of a mood disorder. After further research I came across the DSM for Bipolar
Within the initial session Mrs. Franks commonly redirected to her own needs as discussed in question two. Allowing this interruption a few times before addressing it could gauge Mr. Franks response. Then addressing these needs it is clear she has and saying, “Mrs. Franks it seems like you are also going through a lot right now. I wonder if after we finish the session we might find you a personal clinician in my referral base who might be able to assist you?”, this would hopefully move the conversation along. I make the assumption her
There were a variety of high and low level activities for the campers to engage in. Layla was fully functional and able to participate in all activities assigned. Her physical capabilities were within normal limits for her age group. Layla did injure her ankle at camp; however, she maintained full mobility, and it did not prevent her from future activities. Layla engaged in all exercises with the other campers and performed exceptionally.
I met AH at her house in Queens as she returned from Rosie’s, her after school program. After changing and eating a snack she assured me that she was ready for the interview. AH’s family had previously assisted me in a previous assignment however, to assure rapport was still present I began by talking about a recent trip to Pennsylvania she was on. Afterwards, I assured AH that the interview was only for practice purpose and we began. During the interview, I observed as AH would pause for certain questions and look around thinking thoroughly for the correct answer. For example, when questioned about what she would do with three wishes, she thought hard about each one. From time to time she would pick up her phone and respond to a text in which she later informed me was her
i asked her brief questions about her name and how she was to get acquainted with her and build rapport. Asking questions helps facilitate a dialogue and encourages the client to talk and tell their story Miller (2006). The client seemed tense and uneasy and spoke with a very high tone of voice when she greeted me and introduced herself. When asked about the main reason for turning to therapy, she started fidgeting and looked unsettled; this could be because of the unfamiliar environment or she was not sure if she trusted me enough to tell me her story. Either way, I remained silent whilst maintaining eye contact to give her the space, time she needed in order to settle down and work out what she wanted to bring to the session.
This past week at placement was quite busy when compared to previous weeks. Erin and I had a lot of patients come in to review their mood and/or medications. Many of these patients were teenage girls and I found that while I engaged with them, about half were not interested in the appointment. One patient that was particularly not interested allowed us to take a brief history pertaining to the medication she was taking and how it was affecting her, although her social worker did answer many of the questions asked. After finishing up, Erin and I went out to talk to Jodi, our community advisor, and a few minutes later, we noticed this patient walked out of the clinic. I was quite surprised about because I have never seen a patient do this throughout
