Assignment: Death Scenario


Read the scenario on p. 283 of Positive Psychology.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper including the following:

  • Describe, in detail, the thoughts and emotions you felt while imagining the scenario.
  • If you did experience this event, how do you think you would handle the final moments?
  • If you did experience this event, how would you describe your life up to this point?
  • In what ways can traumatic events be opportunities for growth?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

    • 1. Define the client’s presenting problem(s) and provide a diagnostic impression.
    • 2. Identify how the problem(s) is/are evidenced in the client’s behavior.
    • 3. List the client’s cognitive and behavioral symptoms.

    Long-Term Goal

    • 1. Generate a long-term treatment goal that represents the desired outcome for the client.
      • This goal should be broad and does not need to be measureable.

    Short-Term Objectives

    • Generate a minimum of three short-term objectives for attaining the long-term goal.
      • Each objective should be stated in behaviorally measureable language. Subjective or vague objectives are not acceptable. For example, it should be stated that the objective will be accomplished by a specific date or that a specific symptom will be reduced by a certain percentage.


    • 1. Identify at least one intervention for achieving each of the short-term objectives.
    • 2. Compare a minimum of three evidence-based theoretical orientations from which appropriate interventions can be selected for the client.
    • 3. Explain the connection between the theoretical orientation and corresponding intervention selected.
    • 4. Provide a rationale for the integration of multiple theoretical orientations within this treatment plan.
    • 5. Identify two to three treatment modalities (e.g., individual, couple, family, group, etc.) that would be appropriate for use with the client.

    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.


    • 1. List the anticipated outcomes of each proposed treatment intervention based on scholarly literature.
      • Be sure to take into account the individual’s strengths, weaknesses, external stressors, and cultural factors (e.g., gender, age, disability, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, etc.) in the evaluation.
    • 2. Provide an assessment of the efficacy of evidence-based intervention options.


    • 1. Analyze and describe potential ethical dilemmas that may arise while implementing this treatment plan.
    • 2. Cite specific ethical principles and any applicable law(s) for resolving the ethical dilemma(s).

    A minimum of five peer-reviewed resources must be used to support the recommendations made within the plan.
