Assess clients presenting for psychotherapy
Develop genograms for clients presenting for psychotherapy
Select a client whom you have observed or counseled at your practicum site.
Review pages 137–142 of the Wheeler text and the Hernandez Family Genogram video in this week’s Learning Resources. Reflect on elements of writing a Comprehensive Client Assessment and creating a genogram for the client you selected.
Part 1: Comprehensive Client Family Assessment
With this client in mind, address the following in a Comprehensive ClientAssessment (without violating HIPAA regulations):
History or present illness
Past psychiatric history
Substance use history
Family psychiatric history
History of abuse/trauma
Review of systems
Mental status exam
Part 2: Family Genogram
Prepare a genogram for the client you selected. The genogram should extend back by at least three generations (great grandparents, grandparents, and parents).
