Experiences of schizophrenia are not  homogeneous; there is wide variety in onset, course of illness, and  combinations of symptoms. Social workers need to be able to understand  the different manifestations and pathways of the illness to plan  interventions. Social work services play a key role in stabilizing  crises, supporting family coping, and influencing overall quality of  life and outcomes of individuals with schizophrenia. In this Assignment,  you practice applying this necessary individualization. 

To prepare:  In the Learning Resources, focus on the associated features,  development, and course of the illnesses in the schizophrenia spectrum.  Also focus on descriptions of the disorder and the way it develops for  different individuals. 

Choose two articles  from the list in the Learning Resources that apply to treatment support  and interventions for the schizophrenia spectrum. Access the Walden  Library and research additional peer-reviewed articles.

By Day 7

Submit a 3- to 4-page paper,  supported by at least 3–4 scholarly resources (including both required  and additional resources), in which you address the following: 

  • Compare Saks’s and McGough’s experiences with schizophrenia,  specifically referencing the positive and negative symptoms they each  experienced. 
  • Explain how you would use the Clinician Rated Dimensions of  Psychosis Symptom Severity measure and the WHODAS to help confirm your  diagnosis. 
  • Identify in what ways their cases are typical or atypical of the  illness in terms of onset, associated features, development, and course.  Support your response with references to scholarly resources. 
  • Explain how you would plan treatment and individualize it for these  two individuals. Support your response with references to scholarly  resources. In your explanation, consider the following questions: 
    • What are the long-term challenges for someone living with the illness? 
    • What social, family, vocational, and medical supports are needed for long-term stabilization? 
    • How might treatment look similar or different for Saks and McGough, given they have the same diagnosis?
  • Briefly explain how race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation,  socioeconomic status, religion, or other identity characteristics may  influence an individual’s experience with schizophrenia. in the black community
