Running head: TREATMENT PLAN1Elementary School Individual Counseling Case Conceptualization and Treatment PlanLiberty University
TREATMENT PLAN 2Elementary School Individual Counseling Case Conceptualization and Treatment PlanDevelopmentally Appropriate, Ethically Sound, and Multiculturally Sensitive CaseConceptualization and AppraisalIntake and ConfidentialityUpon arriving at school today, Geoffrey, a ten-year-old male student of Jewish decent appearing disheveled with dirty clothes and unwashed, came to my office because he said he needed someone to talk to. I explained that I would be happy to listen and try to help him understand what was going on. I tell Geoffrey that anything we talk about in our counseling sessions is confidential, between he and I, except for a couple of reasons which I disclose to him.I let him know that anything he says to me will be kept between us except in cases where I suspect he is being abused or neglected. I let him know that I would also need to break our confidentiality if he were to disclose that he wanted to harm himself or harm others. And, that if Iwere court ordered I would need to break confidentiality. I also let him know I would need to inform his parents that he was seeking assistance from me, but details of what we speak about would not be discussed except for the previously mentioned reasons. I asked him if he had any questions or needed clarification on confidentiality and what it meant or when I would need to break it. Geoffrey, almost in tears, expresses that he is angry over his parent’s recent divorce. His body language shows embarrassment because of his downcast vision and defeated hunch, and hisclenched fists show anger at the situation. He appears distressed over not getting to spend as much time with his mother, who previously did not have to work and now does, and upset that his father doesn’t seem to care enough to spend any time with him at all, even on days he has visitation. Geoffrey also seems to be confused and worried after hearing his mother tell his fatherthat he would go to jail and lose his job if he continued to do drugs and drink. Geoffrey goes on to tell me that he feels all alone and ignored, and he doesn’t understand how his parents can stop loving each other and him. He mumbles, “I just wish I could disappear and maybe then they would be sorry, and I wouldn’t have to hear them fight anymore.”Observable Behaviors and Counseling GoalsAfter completing Geoffrey’s initial intake, I was able to observe several behaviors that wecan set our counseling goals around. Geoffrey appears to be struggling with anger, confusion,
