Evidence-based practices are the core of treatment protocols for mental health disorders for justice-involved individuals. As a human services professional, you need to be able to analyze evidence-based practices for mental health intervention and treatment.

Refer to the scenario Scenario 2

Anna had a long history of severe mental illness dating back more than 20 years. During her first depressive episode, she had killed her baby while suffering psychotic symptoms. She also made two serious suicide attempts. Anna has been divorced twice and now lives alone in federally subsidized home. She has an adult daughter who is deaf and severely handicapped. Prior to her last arrest, her daughter lived at home, and Anna cared for her with help from local social services. Her daughter was placed in residential care when Anna was incarcerated. Because of the previous infanticide, social services had always monitored the situation regarding risk factors for her daughter’s safety; however, this was less of an issue now that her daughter was an adult. Anna’s illness history is characterized mainly by depressive episodes with psychotic features. She had experienced episodes of paranoid thoughts when she believed her neighbors knew all about the past and she was reluctant to go out because she felt persecuted. Anna felt extreme guilt at having killed her child. When psychotic, she would shout that she was evil and deserved to be punished. It seemed that the guilt had affected her considerably to manifest in a negative self-concept. Even when well, Anna never spontaneously talked about herself in a positive manner.

Primary Diagnosis: 

  • Major Depressive Disorder - recurrent, severe, with psychotic features. DSM-5 296.35, ICD-10 (F33.3)
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). DSM-5 300.02, ICD-10 (F41.1)You are continuing in your role as a human services professional working at a psychological treatment center in a local correctional facility. You will be assisting your supervisor to research and determine an appropriate treatment protocol for the client in your chosen scenario. 

Research common treatment interventions and practices for the disorder in your chosen scenario. 

Create a 12 slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation regarding evidence-based treatment protocols for the disorder in your chosen scenario. If necessary details are missing from the case study, fill in the gaps with information from your research. For your presentation, you must:  

  • Describe 3 possible evidence-based treatment protocols for the justice-involved individual. Include the following for each:
  • What interventions are common in this treatment protocol?
  • What is necessary for this treatment to be successful?
  • What are the benefits of this treatment?
  • What are the drawbacks of this treatment?
  • Propose 1 treatment protocol for the client.
  • Use the research you conducted to support your proposal.
  • Provide support for your reasons for choosing this treatment protocol for this client.

Cite 3 peer-reviewed journal articles according to APA guidelines.
