This is a two part assignment. the first assignment is You have been called in to consult on cases that may require mandated treatment. Choose two to discuss in your initial post. Begin your research with the required resources for this week. Using the specific situations presented in each of the scenarios you have chosen, conduct further research to help inform your recommendations for each individual. A minimum of one resource per scenario, beyond those already required for the assignment, must be included in your initial post.
In your post, construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based psychological concepts and theories to present your recommendations as to whether or not treatment should be mandated for the individuals in each of the scenarios. As you write your recommendations, be certain to provide insights into the following questions.
- What are the ethical principles and implications raised by legally mandating clients into treatment?
- What evidence exists regarding the effectiveness of treatment with and without coercion for this type of situation?
- What would be the challenges in evaluating the effectiveness of mandated treatment?
- How might mandated treatment impact your clinical decision making as the mental health professional assigned to these cases?
- What client factors might limit or augment the potential benefits of treatment if it were mandated?
The second assignment is you will be submitting your proposal for the Week Five Virtual Conference. You may utilize relevant assignments from previous courses in this program or suitable projects from your professional. Presentations document for specific parameters and instructions on how to create your proposal. Following the guidelines presented in the document, create your proposal and attach it to your initial post in the discussion forum. Evaluate the impact participating in conference presentations may have on potential work settings and/or doctoral programs and comment on the following questions in your initial post.
- How are conference presentations professionally relevant?
- What elements of the proposal process were most difficult for you, and why?
- What positive outcomes do you anticipate will come from this process, which may be applied to potential work settings and/or doctoral programs?
Note: The first assignment requires that you answer seven questions in the assignment. The second assignment a topic has to be chosen. I’ve decided on ADHD for the poster. If the chosen tutor has a better topic, we can use that instead. I have complete instructions on both assignments below. I need these assignments to be completed within 2 days.
Thank you in advance!
