Identify the red flags in your case study to be further evaluated.

Week 4: Putting It All Together: Differential Diagnosis and Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Clinicians often have to employ multiple skills simultaneously while engaging with clients. Not least among them are reflective listening, information gathering and sensitive questioning, recording key responses, observing for signs of syndromes, and identifying the chief complaints. This week you address the complex process for identifying and distinguishing among similar diagnostic syndromes.

This process begins in the diagnostic interview. Research of skilled clinicians shows that forming diagnostic impressions too quickly increases the risk of errors in diagnosis. Every clinician should be evaluating differential diagnoses at the diagnostic interview and beyond. While social workers want to resolve their own uncertainty, using the formal steps of a decision tree ensures accuracy. A decision tree is especially important when all….

use of research data to guide the development of social work interventions on the micro, mezzo and/or macro-levels. Kearney (2001) described ways qualitative research findings can inform practice.

Evidence-based social work practice calls for the use of research data to guide the development of social work interventions on the micro, mezzo and/or macro-levels. Kearney (2001) described ways qualitative research findings can inform practice. Qualitative findings can help social workers understand the clients’ experiences and “what it may feel like” (Kearney, 2001). Therefore, social workers can develop clinical interventions that take into account the experiences of their clients. Qualitative findings can also help social workers monitor their clients. For example, if after reading a qualitative study on how domestic violence survivors respond to stress, they can monitor for specific stress behaviors and symptoms (Kearney, 2001). In addition, they can educate their client what stress behaviors to look for and teach them specific interventions to reduce stress (Kearney,….

provide background information on the public health issue and explain why it is relevant and/or prevalent.

You will do this project in a group of 5 or less. Each group or individual will sign up to present on a public health issue and intervention of their choice. They will provide background information on the public health issue and explain why it is relevant and/or prevalent. They will also determine if some of the factors discussed throughout the course (i.e. urbanization, vulnerable populations, health disparities, social determinants of health, public health ethics, health literacy, etc.) were major factors in the development and implementation of the intervention that they choose to highlight. The groups or individuals will prepare a presentation of their information as well as a paper to depict their findings. The presentation can be in any form including, but not limited to, a PowerPoint….

While cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) have many similarities, they are distinctly different therapeutic approaches. When assessing clients and selecting one of these therapies, you must recognize the importance of not only selecting the one that is best for the client, but also the approach that most aligns to your own skill set. For this Assignment, as you examine the similarities and differences between CBT and REBT, consider which therapeutic approach you might use with your clients.

Learning Objectives Students will: Compare cognitive behavioral therapy and rational emotive behavioral therapy Recommend cognitive behavioral therapies for clients
