I. Identify a list of problems reported to you by the client and/or caregiver(s).

IV. Identified strengths: When identifying goals, include strengths that will help client achieve long-term goal(s) (e.g., supportive family). Client should help identify strengths. Initially, it may be difficult to help client identify more than one or two strengths, but as the course of treatment continues, more should become evident.

.

Next select a treatment modality— individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling, or a combination of these. Support your recommended intervention and modality with evidence from scholarly resources. (Note: Consider researching evidence-based treatments or treatment outcomes that you can use to help guide your recommendations for treatment.)

VII. Identify and describe how you will tailor the treatment to the client’s unique individual and cultural background.

VIII. Explain how you would involve the parents/guardians in the treatment plan and why their involvement might be important.
