Specialized Treatment – The Perfect Gift © 2021 Walden University 1 Specialized Treatment – The Perfect Gift Program Transcript [MUSIC PLAYING] MALE NARRATOR: People visit shopping malls for many different reasons. Some arrive looking to make personal purchases, others hope to find the perfect gift for someone else. Younger visitors gathered to socialize, elderly walk the concourse for exercise, and couples arrive to dine or to take in a movie. In many ways, shopping malls offer a one-size-fits-all shopping experience with something for everyone located under one roof. Despite the diversity of offerings, however, shopping malls are in decline, as they struggle to compete with boutiques and online shopping experiences. Buyers increasingly prefer more personalized shopping solutions than an attempt at a one-sizefits-all. Approaches to psychotherapy certainly follow the retail trend. Clinicians understand that specific clients, groups, and populations have unique characteristics that require more personalized or customized treatment plans. Much like the visitors of the local mall, young and elderly populations arrive with different needs. Likewise, clients presenting with specific disorders may require personalized treatment approaches. A diverse population coupled with an increasing understanding of different disorders restricts any attempt at a one-size-fits-all approach. By tailoring approaches to client and group needs, clinicians can develop treatment experiences that lead to better outcomes, helping clients find that perfect gift for themselves.

Aassignment: Psychotherapy for Clients With Addictive Disorders

Addictive disorders can be particularly challenging for clients. Not only do these disorders typically interfere with a client’s ability to function in daily life, but they also often manifest as negative and sometimes criminal behaviors. Sometime clients with addictive disorders also suffer from other mental health issues, creating even greater struggles for them to overcome. In your role, you have the opportunity to help clients address their addictions and improve outcomes for both the clients and their families.

To prepare:

Review this week’s Learning Resources and consider the insights they provide about diagnosing and treating addictive disorders. As you watch the 187 Models of Treatment for Addiction video, consider what treatment model you may use the most with clients presenting with addiction. (Model 187)

Search the Walden Library databases and choose a research article that discusses a therapeutic approach for treating clients, families, or groups with addictive disorders.

Explain the findings/outcomes of the study in the article. Include whether this will translate into practice with your own clients. If so, how? If not, why?

Explain whether the limitations of the study might impact your ability to use the findings/outcomes presented in the article.

Use the Notes function of PowerPoint to craft presenter notes to expand upon the content of your slides.
