Obtain and watch the movie, “Sophie’s Choice.” Using the information about Sophie and Nathan that is provided in the movie itself, write two case evaluations. One evaluation will be of Sophie, and one of Nathan. Please be aware the Nathan is given a diagnosis in the movie, Paranoid Schizophrenia. You may or may not agree with this diagnosis — don’t assume it’s accurate. Do your own reasoning! In each evaluation, include the following sections: I) Background Information: Family of origin, education level and school experiences, work history, current economic status, current relationship(s), information about children if any, trauma history, reported medical and mental illnesses, past treatments. II) Behavioral Observations: Your observations of the patient, how they dress and care for themselves, how they interact with others, their mood, intelligence, insight into their problems, and any other relevant observations. III) DSM-IV-TR Diagnoses (all five axes): (it is possible for a patient to have more than one diagnosis on each of Axis I, Axis II, and Axis III). IV) Findings: Describe why you made each of your Axis I and Axis II diagnoses. What data from the Background Information and/or Behavioral Observations do you believe justifies each Axis I and Axis II diagnosis you have made. In other words, how does this information relate to the diagnostic criteria for each Axis I and Axis II diagnosis you have made. V) Treatment Recommendations: Using information obtained in this class or from other sources you locate, such as the KU Library or Google, write a brief list of issues you believe need to be addressed in treatment and what treatment will be used to address each issue. Include recommendations for medication if you believe this may be necessary to help the patient. VI) Prognosis: Consider the patient’s level of motivation, insight, severity of their illness, and results of past treatment episodes, as well as what is generally known by psychologists about the illness(s) the patient has. Then indicate how well this patient is likely to do in treatment with you. List your prognosis as excellent, good, fair, or poor, and then explain your reasoning for this prognosis. VII) Ethical/Legal Considerations: Is this patient a danger to self or others? Is this patient competent to make decisions for him/herself? Should involuntary hospitalization or treatment be considered for this patient and if so, why? Does this patient’s behavior warrant reporting to any government agencies and if so, why? If you were treating this patient, what ethical concerns would you need to address to assure that your work with the patient conforms to prevailing ethical codes and standards?
