Include in your assessment:

·         Assessment of key issues should be included. If you have used any assessment measures please identify them and provide the rating (e.g., the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Key issues should include a section on strengths of the client, and section on issues/concerns, and the nature of the referral for treatment or care.

·        Also, Case conceptualization- discuss the origin of the target problems/issues using a CBT lens. Summarize the pertinent history and precipitating factors concerning the presenting problems(s).  Please provide three MEASURABLE goals.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE THIS PAPER IN A NARRATIVE FORM AND NOT “LIST” THINGS.
