Examine your colleague’s transcript, and write an evaluation of the prospective patient’s apparent symptoms and presenting problem(s) within the context of at least one theoretical orientation. Theoretical orientations are based on the personality theories you learned about in PSY615 (Personality Theories), and are referred to as “approaches” in Abnormal and Clinical Psychology: An Introductory Textbook (e.g., cognitive, behavioral, humanistic, biological, sociocultural, evolutionary, psychoanalytic, integrative, etc.). NOTE: Be clear that you are writing about a theoretical orientation and using the theoretical orientation to explain the client’s symptoms and presenting problems. Do not use the theoretical orientation to discuss any therapy or treatment approaches. Your application of the theoretical orientation should answer the question: How did this client develop the symptoms and current presenting problems? For example, “Based on the cognitive perspective, how did this client develop the symptoms and current presenting problem?” “Based on the humanistic perspective, how did this client develop the symptoms and current presenting problem?” Etc.
Remember that symptoms may not be explicitly mentioned by the patient, but they may be inferred by the patient’s presenting problem(s). Finally, suggest assessment tools and strategies such as those you learned about in PSY 640 (Psychological Testing and Assessment) that might be used to evaluate this patient.
