An Opportunity To Demonstrate Course-Related Knowledge In Speaking

The purpose of Case Study 1 is to provide an opportunity to demonstrate course-related knowledge in speaking more “deeply” about 1 specific client. Your case study will identify specific behaviors and how those behaviors are evaluated in light of a specific theory. You will also identify ways that specific behaviors can be addressed in a manner consistent with the theories of your field. (For research-oriented internships, you will identify specific variables being studied and provide rationale for the study.)

With explicit permission from your site supervisor, choose a case, circumstance, or situation at your site. If an appropriate case cannot be obtained from your site, then you may complete a case study on a historical or fictional character. You will need explicit permission from your instructor to use a historical or fictional character.

Discuss the following steps with your supervisor:

  • Without violating confidentiality, provide background information on your subject (or group/situation), including behaviors observed, any medical information that is available, socio-cultural factors that might affect treatment, etc.
  • Provide information about current behaviors, specifically maladaptive behaviors, and current treatment plans/progress.
  • Using knowledge gained in your study of psychology in general and/or your cognate in particular, provide a brief theoretical explanation of your case.
  • 3–4 pages
  • Current APA format
  • This document must maintain the strictest level of confidentiality.
