Now, pick up from where you left off last week. Last week, you identified rapid assessment instruments that could be utilized for screening/assessing a client that has the behavioral health issue that is related to your focus topic. You will now create a biopsychosocial (spiritual) assessment template that could be used for this special client population. Your submission will be in the form of a brochure.
Pretend you have been asked to create this assessment for a program that specializes in working with this client population. When creating your assessment, ask yourself: What standard information should be in their biopsychosocial (spiritual) assessment? What unique or specialized information should also be included? How much information should be gathered to be thorough, yet not overwhelm the client at the first session? (Keep in mind that sessions/appointments are typically one hour.) Your brochure should include the assessment plus important information based on these questions that would assist others in completing the assessment, then interpreting the results.
You may choose to incorporate the spiritual component if you believe it is beneficial/necessary, or you may omit it. For this assignment, be sure to include the following:
- The biopsychosocial (spiritual) assessment template.
- A brief explanation of how to use this template and justification for why you asked for particular information or chose certain elements or questions in your template.
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
