Instructions: Use this template to create a treatment plan. Provide your response to each area in the box below:

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


II. As you are able, identify a provisional primary psychiatric diagnosis you believe may be present and may need to be addressed. (Note: Refer to the DSM-5 for diagnostic criteria for specific problems listed.)


III. Identify the level of care needed to address the presenting problem(s). This could include:
a. Inpatient
b. Residential treatment
c. Partial hospitalization
d. Intensive outpatient counseling
e. Outpatient counseling


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.


V. Identified problems/deficits: Includes factors in client’s life that may impede successful recovery.


VI. Explain one treatment intervention you might use in the case you selected and justify the use of the intervention. 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.
