For this assignment, you will continue to develop your work with the one of the ten cases you identified and began working with at the face-to-face residency. Open the Preliminary Treatment Plan and complete the information in the online form for the tabs titled “Biopsychosocial” and “Treatment Plan.” Once completed, download a PDF and submit it to your instructor in the assignment area by the end of this unit.

•Evaluate client information and articulate the presenting problem.
•Review possible assessment techniques.
•Create short and long term treatment plan goals.
•Discuss the legal and ethical concerns.
•Identify areas of consultation with other professionals.
•Develop a suggested treatment plan for the client.
Todd, a 66-year-old African-American man, recently retired after 40 years of teaching high school social studies and coaching, to tend to his wife and two grandsons. He needed to be home to take care of his wife, who has advancing Alzheimer’s. Mike is also the guardian for his two grandsons, ages 9 and 12. The grandsons became his and his wife’s responsibility two years ago, after the death of their daughter due to a drug overdose. Todd loved teaching and did not want to retire, but felt overwhelmed by family demands. So far, he is “holding it together,” but is afraid his social isolation due to caring for his family is going to “pull him under.”
