Bipolar Disorder And Anticonvulsant/Mood-Stabilizing Medications

WK 4 SOCW 6443 Discussion 1: Bipolar Disorder and Anticonvulsant/Mood-Stabilizing Medications

Mental health professionals are aware of tendencies and respond to behaviors such as impulsivity in order to create treatment plans that are intended to prevent or ameliorate symptoms before lasting consequences occur. Although mental health professionals should follow established protocols by attempting to have clients act on their own behalf, they should also understand that at any time they might need to intervene to support and assist these clients.

Select one of the following disorders treated with anticonvulsant/mood-stabilizing medications:

Chose one and you must have intext references and full references 300 to 500 words

Schizoaffective disorder

Bipolar I disorder

Bipolar II disorder

For this Discussion, review the Learning Resources and create a hypothetical case study of a client with the selected disorder.

Include the client’s age, gender, major presenting factors (including losses and symptom manifestation), when symptoms emerged, and any other pertinent information.

Consider possible medicinal treatments that a psychiatrist might prescribe for the hypothetical client and the role of the mental health professional in these treatment cases.

Be creative in your description but also be as realistic as possible.

Access the DSM-5 and other texts to construct the background story for your hypothetical client’s presentation.
