Planning family interventions
From the clinical literature review, different family interventions can be related to the presented case. Various studies have been conducted which have contributed to the literature of family-based interventions. Family-based intervention refers to the activities which are undertaken during a therapeutic session which involves all the members of a family to improve all the members as well as help each one of them understands the disorder that could be present. This approach can be used to help all the members of the family. According to Fishman (2017), family intervention methods can be used to help troubled adolescents. Therefore, this study discusses that the family-based intervention will be necessary for helping individuals who are depressed such as William. This action has to be taken because when depression progressed, the affected person might start contemplating suicide.
b. Akram, Copello, & Moore's (2014) study shows that family-based interventions can be used for substance misuse. In the case that has been formulating, Mr. Also, the separation of William's parent's caused him to be silent because he loved his father and did not like the idea of staying with the grandparents. In this case, the family intervention can be used whereby, William will be taken through various therapeutic sessions that will increase his physical activity. In the case study, Sally is the last born of Mrs. Mann and always complains of stomach problems in the morning. Sometimes, the stomach problem could make her throw up. In this case, the target group for the family-based intervention is the family system. These family systems have to be taken through conjoint family sessions whereby every member is available.
During the session, the issue that is affected all the family members will be addressed and the solution will be sought. e. The research that has been cited for is related to the psychological aspects of the case. Mann stops drinking alcoholic and get back together with his wife so that their children can feel the presence of both parents. The second goal that the family has to achieve tube at peace with one another. In this case, the husband should stop battering the wife and Triq should stop fighting with his brother. The third goal that this family has to achieve is to ensure that every member if open to each other so that in case one of them has a problem, it will know my other members and they can help to get rid of the problem.
For example, William who is withdrawn and stays away from people will be helped to start interacting with people. The clinical reason for choosing this intervention is because Pharmacotherapy involves the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. This mode of treatment will then ensure that the anxiety which is the main issue evident in all the family members is reduced. d. The main problems that are experienced in the case that has been presented were caused by the father constantly beating the wife. This issue contributed a lot to the change in behavior of the different members of the family. The other collateral system in the environment is the school whereby the children of Mr. and Mrs. Mann are studying. The school has a lot of effects on the psychological development of children.
The role that this environment will have on the treatment plan is that it will help the clinical psychologists to identify the factors that these children experience in school that could be the leading cause of their problem. After that, these issues can be dealt with separately. The other obstacle that can be experienced when implementing this intervention is that some of the members of the family might be uncooperative. The best strategy to ensure every member cooperates is to inform them so that they can be prepared. These individuals should also be told that the activity is for their good and it will help them to deal with various conditions that they are experiencing. Another obstacle that can be experienced during the implementation of the intervention plan is the lack of time.
The other practice theory that underlies this intervention plan is the task-centered practice (Yang et al. The task-centered practice is the case whereby the clients the goals that have to be achieved at the end of the intervention plan. When developing the intervention plan for this case, it will be important to ask the goals that each member of the family, as well as the family as a whole aim, achieve. This issue will ensure that appropriate measures will be taken that will help to attain these goals. The third practice theory is narrative therapy (Hager, Lee, & Reich 2012). This therapy focuses on the relationship that is between feelings, thought, and behaviors. This practice theory defines the intervention plan in the sense that it will be used to help the family members to identify the self-destructive thoughts and feelings that contribute to these behaviors.
The Fit between the Evidence-Based Treatment and Particular Psychological Aspects a. The evidence-based treatment that has been selected for the presented case is fit when compared to various psychological aspects. The evidence-based treatment is appropriate with ethnicity, race, and religion because it can be used in any group without discriminating another. Certain families are wealthy and can access this treatment easily. On the other hand, other families are not well off. These family cannot access this mode of treatment to solve their problems. As a result, the evidence-based treatment cannot be effective since another family cannot access it easily. The forces of oppression, as well as discrimination, is the other factor that is not fit with the evidence-based treatment proposed for this case study.
While implementing the evidence-based treatment, the clinical psychologist has to make sure that the approaches undertaken are in line with the religious values of Christianity. In the event these values are violated, there is a high chance that the family can reject the evidence treatment. The other individual aspect of the family, as well as the history of the family, is the emotion as well as physical abuse. When implementing the evidence-based treatment, there is a need to understand the emotional and physical abuse that the family has undergone through because it contributes a lot of the current state of the family. The other aspect that has to be considered before implementing evidence-based treatment is an addiction to substance use. c.
In the case, certain psychosocial aspects have to be taken into account or mediate the treatment. One of the psychosocial aspects that have to be observed is depression (Lohnberg, & Altmaier 2013). In the family presented, William has shown signs of depression because of being bullying by classmates and being fought by the brother. These issues have made him be withdrawn, and most of the times he isolates himself from other people. Mann left. These events have to be taken into account because it will help in the treatment option. These events will ensure that the method of treatment that is used will solve the psychological conditions that developed as a result of these issues. The last psychosocial problem is the work environment.
