For your Course Project, you will apply critical thinking skills to analyze a case study. Review the Course Project – Introduction found in Module 01 and prepare Part C of your Course Project, then compile your submission.
Course Project – Part C and Final Submission
At this point in the course, your understanding of behavioral health should be pretty proficient. For the final submission of your Course Project, continue the process of applying behavioral health concepts to your chosen case study.
Your final submission should include the following:
Part A (reflecting improvements based on faculty-feedback provided)
Provide a brief overview of the case study you have chosen. What are the individual behaviors that have influenced this person’s physical and psychological well-being? Examine these and provide an explanation of each of those behaviors.
Evaluate the individual’s behavioral health according to one of the following theories:
Theory of Planned Behavior
Health Belief Model
Part B (reflecting improvements based on faculty-feedback provided)
Explain the symptoms of the diagnosis provided in the case study. Then explain how this diagnosis will affect the individual in the case study. This is simply an application of what you learned about mental health disorders in Module 02. What are the symptoms of the disorder? Good advocacy requires that education of the client is indicated. Educate your client about the diagnosis. What does the client need to know about this disorder?
Design three (3) goals and three (3) objectives that would support health and wellness as well as overall good behavioral health functioning.
Part C (to be evaluated for the first time)
Identify at least three (3) behavioral health programs and/or services that would support the overall wellness of this individual (these can be national programs/services or they can be local program/services). Indicate the service and then provide an explanation relative to how this program or service would indicate advocacy.
Consider and discuss any ethical issues with regard to the promotion of behavioral health and wellness; and/or current laws that may apply to the case study. Consider cultural issues that may affect the behavioral health plan.
Your final submission should 5-8 pages long and include revisions based on faculty-feedback provided for earlier project assignments.
