This Assignment is in two parts, the first is to use the S.M.A.R.T. goals that you wrote in Discussion as the basis for a hypothetical case plan for Hanna (scenario in the Discussion). Use the Sample Service Plan found in DocSharing to create a short service plan using her presenting problem and the goals to remove her barriers to treatment. Remember to base the goals on her strengths. Then, do some research to find at least three agencies in your local area that could provide these services.
In the second part of this Assignment, write a 1,000-word APA formatted paper that answers the questions below. Remember to base your responses on the service plan that you created in the first portion of the Assignment. When you are finished, add your paper to the service plan and submit it as one Assignment.
In your paper, respond to these questions:
- What is Hannaâ€™s presenting problem? How has this kept her from focusing on her treatment?
- Describe Hannaâ€™s barriers to treatment and how those could be prevented or minimized.
- Explain the short, mid, and long-term goals that you proposed and tell how they help Hanna build self-sufficiency skills.
- Predict Hannaâ€™s success by explaining her strengths. How did you use her strengths in the development of the service goals?
Each paper should include:
- A title page
- The paper body of the paper
- Use standard margins: 1″ on all sides.
- Use standard 12-point font size, Times New Roman or Arial.
- Use standard double-spacing: average of 22 lines per page, and between 20 and 24 lines per page.
- Use left-aligned text. Do not right-justify.
- A reference page
Here is the discussion with the smart goals in it that you will needs to use for part of the assignment
In the case of Hanna, creating a service plan would involve setting up a course of action for the health worker and the patient to ensure that the desired outcomes in treatment are achieved. It will include connecting the needs identified during the initial assessment and ensure that these needs are measurable and realistic. The most immediate needs will be to develop strategies to ensure that the patient eats well and gets enough rest (Summers, 2012). It will also be important to develop a plan to reduce the anxiety of the patient, as well as develop ways of reducing the work load that she has in the workplace. Furthermore, the patient ids complaining of cramps and therefore medication should be given to help relieve the ailment that the patient is facing. One short term S.M.A.R.T goal would involve contacting her employer to explain the patients helps situation with the aim of reducing the workload.
It will be of immediate help as it will reduce the occurrence of anxiety in the patient. There are many S.M.A.R.T goals for the medium term that will also need to be implemented. One of these goals is solving the issue of her daughter. It would therefore be important to develop a plan of assisting with the daughters situation by possibly examining and testing her. It will assist in the development of a solution for the daughter (Summers, 2012). In the long term, it will be necessary to develop long term S.M.A.R.T goals for the patient. One goal would involve assisting Hanna to stop dependency on alcohol for sleep. It would be important to develop her to develop relaxation techniques that will help to reduce the occurrence of anxiety. Reducing stress will involve helping Hanna develop a hobby that will reduce stress occurrence. Another long-term objective involves helping her to reduce the negative thoughts that she has.
It will be important to give Hanna therapy to reduce the thoughts about her son in military. Long term therapy will be beneficial to the patient. There may be a few barriers to treatment in this scenario. One of the barriers may be the lack of support from her family. It may affect her ability to cope with the situation and may potentially worsen it. Another factor that may be a barrier to effective treatment is the lack of cooperation from Hanna (Summers, 2012). It will be necessary for Hanna to cooperate in treatment and this includes willingly participating in therapy. The patient is the center of treatment and must be willing to participate in any therapeutic actions. These factors may hamper effective treatment, and it will be important to develop specific measures that ensure that successful treatment occurs. The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and the Gateways Hospital and Mental Health Centre are two examples of medical centers that can give Hanna the professional help that she requires.
