childhood/adoslecent behavioral disorder
This final assignment will be one that culminates the learning of the course. Your signature assignment is to craft an analysis regarding a disorder. In your analysis please choose one disorder that we have discussed in this course. Identify the disorder and its diagnostic criteria; discuss the progression of the behavioral disorder. Identify possible risk factors and possible family characteristics that may contribute to the disorder. Discuss treatment options for this disorder based on Evidence-Based Practices that are based on theories and research. Discuss and identify ways to engage family members in treatment interventions. Lastly, provide your own ‘take-away’ about the disorder, and how you, as a clinician, would reach out to a child or adolescent with this behavioral disorder.
For this final project, your analysis must include the following:
Provide an overview of the behavioral disorder selected; this must be a disorder that spans both childhood and adolescence.
Review the theories that help us understand this disorder across childhood and adolescence.
Explain how the disorder impacts the three domains of development (physical, cognitive, and psychosocial).
Provide examples of research on this disorder that is recent (in the last five to seven years).
Conclude by considering the type of evidence-based treatment that you believe will work best in addressing the symptoms for the behavioral disorder you have chosen.
