Identify the pervasive mental illness or health concern present in the couple/family.

As you explored in this week’s Discussion, assessment becomes more complex if a couple or family member shows signs of pervasive mental illness or a significant health concern. Using theory-based interventions may help you navigate this challenging terrain.

For this Assignment, consider a couple/family where one member has a severe and persistent mental illness. (Note: This may be a fictitious case or a case from your professional experience). Think about how you would conceptualize the couple’s/family’s problems using the lens of your chosen theoretical orientation. Using the Walden Library, locate two evidence-based journal articles that support interventions for the present issue.

The Assignment (2–3 pages)

  • Identify the pervasive mental illness or health concern present in the couple/family.
  • Conceptualize the couple’s/family’s problem through your chosen theoretical orientation.
  • Design a treatment plan including short- and long-term goals.
  • Explain two evidence-based interventions you would use to address the couple’s/family’s issues and how you would use them. (Note: The interventions may not emerge from your chosen theoretical orientation.)
  • Justify the intervention you selected with two evidence-based research articles.
