Treatment Plan – Using the Paleg & Jongsma text, develop a treatment plan covering the first four weeks of group sessions, using the format and materials in the text, and choosing a topic from the list below.
Begin with a brief description of 1-2 paragraphs of a fictitious group (include population, demographics, particular issues, etc.). In addition to the primary presenting issue (PTSD, Sexual Trauma, Intimate Partner Violence, etc.), select one or more secondary issues (Bulimia, Shyness, Chronic Pain, Panic Attacks, Stress, etc.), taken from the examples provided in the text. Select 3 short-term objectives for each meeting, and then select 2 or more therapeutic interventions to address each of these in the group. You are adapting the material from the text to “your group,” and not developing new materials.
Sample treatment plans are in the text on pages 1 – 11, (please utilize this format) and yours should be detailed and at least 4 double-spaced pages in length. A sample paper is presented to illustrate overall structure, though the requirements for this were slightly different.
Topics include: ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bulimia, Chemical Dependence, Depression, Domestic Violence offender or survivor, Grief/Loss, Incest Offender or Survivor, Parenting Issues, PTSD, Rape Survivors, Separation/Divorce, Single Parents, or Stepparenting.
