Case conceptualization and treatment planning are very important aspects of service delivery.  After reading the assigned materials and listening to the Faculty Podcast on “Goal Writing and Treatment Planning” students will construct a formal case conceptualization and treatment plan using this form. Create a Case Conceptualization and Treatment Plan to meet the needs of the family in your case study.  The case conceptualization and treatment plan should include each of the following elements:  

Summary of Movie 

Include a brief summary of the movie and the family you chose for this assignment.  Provide a paragraph or two describing the central plot or theme of the movie.  What is the movie about?  What subject is addressed in the movie?  What role does your client family play in the movie? (Can be copied from the Family Assessment Form).  

Theoretical Case Conceptualization Orientation 

Describe how your theoretical orientation applies to this case. Provide a rationale for the theory, model, and approach chosen, related to the client’s problem, clinical presentation and/or diagnoses and presenting issues. Include literature that demonstrates how the theory, model, and approach chosen matches the client’s needs, diagnoses, and treatment issues.  Provide supporting resources and supporting research for your approach.   

Treatment Plan

The nature of the treatment plan/evidence-based interventions should coincide with the needs of the client and the theoretical orientation utilized. Using your theoretical framework, describe what you will use (e.g., interventions, approaches, and techniques) and how the client/family/couple will respond? How will you measure treatment outcomes? Please include discharge goals and identify two possible referrals for the family? Are you working with outside agencies?  

Apply SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely) goals when developing the treatment plan.

Instructions for Goal Writing

Presenting Problem, Symptom, Challenge, or Obstacle in the Family System. Goal: (begin each goal with “The family/parent(s) will….”), Then apply a word that implies change “increase”, “decrease” “maintain” “establish” “improve” “eliminate” or “develop”.

Add: Symptom or Desired Outcome

Add: Time Frame Interventions:  Indicate specific theoretical interventions and techniques here.


Ineffective Communication The family will improve their communication skills by demonstrating the ability to reflect the feelings of their child at least once during an enactment, within the next 30 days. Enactments


Increasing “Feeling” Words/Vocabulary

Additional Examples:

Presenting Problem Goal Intervention(s)

Parents can not agree on disciplinary measures for their child, specifically as it relates to completing homework assignments. The parents will agree on an approach to disciplining their child by determining at least two consequences for failing to do homework within the next two weeks.

Suggestion: any time you focus on consequences, be sure to address a reward system/plan for good or desired behavior. Example:

The parents will allow additional minutes of videogaming each week that their child completes homework assignments on time, beginning immediately. Role plays

Decision making exercises

Discussion on family values related to school performance.  

Presenting Problem Goal Interventions

Family demonstrates lack of emotional connection during sessions The family will increase emotional connectedness by demonstrating the use of appropriate, supportive touch within the next 30 days. Circular questioning

Write at least three goals ( 2 short term goals and 1 long term goal) for this family in the movie.  Follow the examples and suggestions indicated above.

Goal 3: Long Term

Discharge and Termination

Discuss your plans for discharging or terminating the family from treatment.  Discuss how you would determine when and if the family is ready for termination.  Describe criteria for termination and how you would prepare the family for that event.  Discuss any needs for referral and describe how you would follow up with the family after discharge, and at what intervals. 

Ethical, Cultural, and Legal Considerations:

Students will apply and cite the ACA and IAMFC Code of Ethics in this section. Describe any ethical or legal issues that pertain to the case and their impact. Examples of ethical issues that could be considered are: transference/countertransference, court-referred clients, informed consent, boundary violations, poor self-care, limits of confidentiality, and any mandated reporting required (e.g. Child or Adult Protective Services).  

Also, address the cultural factors identified earlier and discuss how you plan to address those factors. How might you alter your theoretical approach to adjust for cultural considerations?  What opportunities for your own growth and development might you take in your work with this family?

Please describe how you addressed and resolved or would address and resolve with these ethical and legal issues.  You must cite the ACA and/or IAMFC code that applies to this case.
