Throughout the course, you have had the opportunity to get to know Pat. You have studied her profile using the biopsychosocial approach. Considering her diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, typical treatment involves medication. For this Assignment, go beyond this week’s Learning Resources and research treatment possibilities for individuals with schizophrenia (beyond medication).
To prepare for this Assignment:
- Review Module 42, “The Psychological therapies.” Focus on the evidence-based therapies.
- Review Module 40, “Schizophrenia,” and focus on the characteristics of schizophrenia.
- Review Pat’s profile, including personality test results, biopsychosocial development, and cultural influences.
Submit by Day 7 a treatment plan in 4–8 PowerPoint slides proposing additional treatment and services, beyond medication, to help Pat lead a successful life.
