Before counselors are ready to identify disorders, they must become well practiced at listening attentively during the intake interview. Counselors must try to identify the presenting problem and history of the problem by understanding the client’s full situation.
In Weeks 2 and 3, you will examine a case study scenario that will help you to become more familiar with the biopsychosocial assessment process, including the mental status exam and case conceptualization.
