Application: Case Study – Substance Use and the Adolescent
Over the past decade, cases of substance related disorders have appeared more prevalent in society. From the mental health perspective, research has shown an increase in cases of substance related disorders, particularly with adolescents. This increase has prompted further investigation into adolescent risk and resilience factors, as well as accuracy in diagnosis and appropriate treatment plans. Yet, in cases of adolescent substance use, further investigation is still needed concerning notification rights of parents, legal authorities, and/or case workers.
For this Application, review the client case study in the Learning Resources. Consider the characteristics of the client. Which specific characteristics might you consider important in developing a diagnosis? Consider your rationale for assigning particular diagnoses on the basis of the DSM. Also, think about what other information or people you may need to include in the assessment in order to make an accurate diagnosis.
The Assignment (3–4 pages)
· A DSM diagnosis of the client in the case study
· An explanation of your rationale for assigning the diagnosis on the basis of the DSM
· An explanation of what other information you might need about the client to make an accurate diagnosis
· A brief description of additional individuals you might include in your assessment and explain why
Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources as well as current literature used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
