Psychopharmacologic Approaches to Treatment of Psychopathology

Select an adult or older adult client with a depressive disorder you have seen in your practicum.

In 4 pages, write a treatment plan for your client in which you do the following:

  • Describe the HPI and clinical impression for the client. 
  • Recommend psychopharmacologic treatments and describe specific and therapeutic endpoints for your psychopharmacologic agent. (This should relate to HPI and clinical impression.)
  • Recommend psychotherapy choices (individual, family, and group) and specific therapeutic endpoints for your choices.
  • Identify medical management needs, including primary care needs, specific to this client. 
  • Identify community support resources (housing, socioeconomic needs, etc.) and community agencies that are available to assist the client. 
  • Recommend a plan for follow-up intensity and frequency and collaboration with other providers.
