Learning Objectives

Students will:

– Develop diagnoses for clients receiving psychotherapy*
– Evaluate efficacy of existential-humanistic therapy for clients*
– Analyze legal and ethical implications of counseling clients with
psychiatric disorders*
– Analyze clinical supervision experiences*

* The Assignment related to this Learning Objective is introduced this
week and submitted in Week 10.

For Part 1, select a client whom you observed or counseled this week
(other than the client used for this week’s Discussion). Then, address
the following in your Practicum Journal:

– Describe the client and identify any pertinent history or medical
information, including prescribed medications.
– Using the DSM-5, explain and justify your diagnosis for this client.
– Explain whether existential-humanistic therapy would be
beneficial with this client. Include expected outcomes based on this
therapeutic approach.
– Explain any legal and/or ethical implications related to
counseling this client.
– Support your approach with evidence-based literature.

For Part 2, reflect on your clinical supervision experiences. Then,
address the following in your Practicum Journal:

– How often are you receiving clinical supervision from your preceptor?
– What are the sessions like?
– What is the preceptor bringing to your attention?
– How are you translating these sessions to your clinical practice?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
