It is recommended that students review the e-book The Complete Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner (Jongsma, Peterson, & Bruce, 2014) for additional assistance in completing this assignment.
Clinical and counseling psychologists utilize treatment plans to document a client’s progress toward short- and long-term goals. The content within psychological treatment plans varies depending on the clinical setting. The clinician’s theoretical orientation, evidenced-based practices, and the client’s needs are taken into account when developing and implementing a treatment plan. Typically, the client’s presenting problem(s), behaviorally defined symptom(s), goals, objectives, and interventions determined by the clinician are included within a treatment plan.
To understand the treatment planning process, students will assume the role of a clinical or counseling psychologist and develop a comprehensive treatment plan based on the same case study utilized for the Psychiatric Diagnosis assignment in PSY645. A minimum of five peer-reviewed resources must be used to support the recommendations made within the plan. The Psychological Treatment Plan must include the headings and content outlined below.
Behaviorally Defined Symptoms
It is a best practice to include outside providers (e.g., psychiatrists, medical doctors, nutritionists, social workers, holistic practitioners, etc.) in the intervention planning process to build a support network that will assist the client in the achievement of treatment goals.

Initial call transcript from the patient’s point of view
I am a husband of one child and have stayed in the marriage for the last 34 years. I have been working for a New Jersey Company for the last 32 years. My life completely changed when my brain stopped working properly. At the start, the problems seemed small, hardly noticeable. Life was good before, until my brain went downhill, taking the whole family down with it. I have been a dedicated father who loves his family. I realized things have started to change when I forgot about my anniversary. My wife was furious that that day and I hardly noticed her anger and reaction until she reminded me about the anniversary. Forgetting even very little things made me visit the psychiatrist. Also, I could the plates on the floor after eating, spilling the food all over me, and unable to drive when am heading to work. I needed to visit the psychotherapy to know why the brain has been not functioning properly.
