I am applying to the Walden M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. I plan to practice as a licensed professional in counseling and Higher Education. I have always wanted to be a Clinical Mental Health Psychologist, working with individuals to help improve their mental and emotional health is something that I am committed to. Starting this program now is the best time because the information that I learned from my undergrad career would help me to be more successful in my grad career by learning more but at an advanced level. Once I receive my degree I plan to go back to school to get my doctorate degree in psychology, and utilize the skills that I have learned to open my own private practice that helps individuals who suffer with mental and emotional disabilities, within my practice I plan to let each individual patient talk about their issues and come up with a strategic plan for treatment. The personal qualities that I possess are having self-confidence and the ability to work and collaborate with others having the ability to be receptive to feedback while maintaining a positive attitude.

There is not one treatment intervention that will solve all issues. Therefore, we have to be able to evaluate each situation uniquely. Treatment intervention can involve the use of prescription drugs in order to limit the outcomes of any condition. Good interventions include good monitoring procedures, follow-ups, and support. One treatment that works for an individual may not necessarily work for the next person. The purpose of the intervention is to break a negative cycle that has become destructive to an individual. Most of the individuals that undergo an intervention will begin with a slight condition of denial. The chemical dependency on any type of drug can be detrimental to an individual and his or her family. The situation in case one, dealing with the 18 year old high school student, would be an appropriate person to implement into a treatment intervention because he will need the additional support and medical support in order to overcome his addiction.
Please state what type of community mental health therapy services this minor will need post-release -- if any. (Trauma focused CBT, Individual/and or Fam. therapy, solution therapy, etc.)
second edition of Treatment Plans and Interventions for Depression and Anxiety Disorders, by Robert L. Leahy, Stephen J. F. Holland, and Lata K. McGinn. However, as the reader we are not sure if this is even a credible source. Since, he does not provide the background of these authors how can we prove they have the authority to support the argument. Lukianoff and Haidt fail to mention the legitimacy of the authority which, in my perspective weakens their argument. They also claim Republicans and Democrats have never particularly liked each other, but survey data going back to the 1970s show that on average, their mutual dislike used to be surprisingly mild. The problem with this statement, is they give no source for who conducted the
Veterans who have been deployed to combat and endured trauma display higher levels of emotional distress and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (Yarvis, 2013). Moreover, the exposure to traumatic events over the lifespan relates to issues that impact the individual by a wide range of mental health problems (Briere & Scott, 2012). The VA offers a vast majority of mental health services, however there are particular interventions that are not offered because there aren’t enough medical practitioners certified or exposed to certain therapies. With respect to the patient, this paper will discuss an unsuccessful treatment plan that would have prospered had the veteran underwent an alternative route of interventions. Although a medical team follows the veteran, her PTSD symptoms continue to affect her day-to-day life.
Anxiety treatment could most accurately be described as having a tool belt with lots of different options to take given the situation. Breathing exercises are a great way to increase the amount of chemicals in your brain that tells itself to calm down. By taking a few deep breaths before doing something that you are nerves about, you will find that a lot of the pressure to take action will have lifted off of your shoulders. It’s much easier at that point to take action because you feel less constrained by your fear.
a 44 year old Divorced African Male came into Henry Ford Hospital ED as a walk-in and told the HFHS staff that he was having mental health issues he does still struggle with depression and anxiety. The consumer stated that he initially went into the hospital after his brother was shot twice in the head. At that time the client reports that he was placed on Risperdal, while at Kingswood in January, and he became a zombie at that time. He stated that he has been in and of the hospital multiple times since then, and each time, he has been placed on Risperdal and he doesn't feel that his meds were ever adjusted correctly.
Given what I know about the client, I think it is best to treat his symptoms of depression and anxiety before anything else. I say this because historically throughout his life, he has resorted to drinking as a way of coping with his depression and anxiety. I think this client would best benefit from outpatient therapy with a long term treatment plan.
I am applying for a social work practicum placement at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. I admire the great work the VA does by providing veterans with services necessary to their overall health. As a clinical year MSW student intern, this placement is an excellent opportunity to not only expand my knowledge base, but also contribute to the operations of the medical center. Veteran's mental health is unique in that the onsets of disorders are often things we civilians cannot relate to, and the challenge of working in that type of environment excites and drives me.
The position I’m applying for is the Clinical Research Coordinator for the Depression Clinical and Research Program. The position is at Massachusetts General Hospital. The program researches treatments for Major Depressive Disorder while seeking to detect the main causes of the disease. The Research Coordinators are in charge of managing and monitoring the clinical studies. The job duties include screening the eligibility of participants, data entry and analysis, and clinical laboratory work.
There are 3 subscales within the items. Intrusion contains 5 items, Avoidance/Numbing contains 7 items and Hyperarousal contains 5 items. These are then scored on 3 things, the Total Frequency, Total Severity and the DTS total (Davidson, 1996). The DTS is scored using a 0-5 rating and the examinee is told to use the past week as a reference time. The typical time from for taking the DTS is normally no greater than 10 minutes (Davidson, 1996). It is made clear that the intent of this for is to assess the severity of PTSD symptoms in those already diagnosed, not to be a means of assessing for the presence of PTSD itself. Thus, the scores that are obtained are intended for use in helping treatment plans (Carlson, 1999).
